Blueberry Fruit Popsicles

Blueberry fruit popsicles perfectly sweetened and packed with delicious vanilla yogurt and luscious fresh blueberries.

Blueberry Fruit Popsicles


These Blueberry Vanilla Yogurt Ice Pop Popsicles are the consummate summer treat. They are creamy, fruity, and ice cold!

Loaded with vitamin C, antioxidants, and power-boosting protein, these fruit popsicles are going to be a staple in my freezer now.

The summer weather is here to stay. And, I have been collecting my recipes for fruit popsicles to stay cool. Have you had a chance to try these Pineapple Orange Popsicles yet?

They have no refined sugar and are a perfect cool treat for a hot day. Or, these Strawberry Kiwi Vitamin C Ice Pops are an easy 4 ingredient popsicle recipe for a healthy summer treat.

And, if you like yogurt popsicles, you will want to try these Red, White, and Blue Berry Popsicles.

Are fruit popsicles healthy?
Whether or not your popsicles recipes are healthy really depends on what you put in them.

If they contain protein and fresh fruit without a lot of added sugar, chances are they are a healthy summer popsicle recipe.

That's why these Blueberry Vanilla Yogurt Ice Pop Popsicles are such a favorite of mine. They contain only one tablespoon of added sweetness from the honey.

How to make popsicles at home
These fruit popsicles are so easy to make at home that you'll never want to buy them at the store again. All you will need is a popsicle mold of some sort.

You can make popsicle fruit pops in any type of mold from a Dixie cup and a popsicle stick to a popsicle mold. If you want them to look like the ones you buy at a store, you will want to use a mold. 

What you will need to make Blueberry Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles

Can I add chunks of fruit?
All of the ingredients in these fruit popsicles are blended until they are smooth and creamy. But, if you want a popsicle recipe that has chunks of fruit, you can make whole fruit popsicles as well.

Just add whole blueberries to the popsicle mold before you freeze them. They will need to be small enough to fit into the mold. So, you may need to slice them in half if they are too large.

For larger fruits, you may want to slice them into thin slices rather than thicker chunks.

What other fruits can I use?
You can puree almost any type of fruit for these fruit popsicles. Why not try another type of fresh berry. Or, try mango, pineapple, kiwi, or even peach.

Pureed bananas make a great choice if you are looking for fruit popsicles with no added sugar. They are sweet enough on their own.

The important thing to remember is to blend the fruit so the texture is creamy and smooth.

Helpful Tips to make Blueberry Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles

  • If you're wondering how to make popsicles creamy, not icy, it's the addition of the yogurt that adds creaminess to your yogurt popsicle.
  • If you want coconut milk fruit popsicles, you can add coconut yogurt rather than traditional dairy-based yogurt for a lactose-free popsicle recipe. Or, you could try another plant-based yogurt like soy or almond.
How long do these need to freeze?
The hardest part about making these yogurt popsicles is waiting for them to freeze. When making fruit popsicles, you will need to let them freeze for at least 4 hours.

I like to freeze mine for 24 hours to make sure everything is solid. So, make sure you plan ahead and make them the day before you want to enjoy them.

How can I serve these fruit popsicles?
If you're planning on serving these at a party, I find it's best to set them in a large tray of ice cubes so that they stay frozen and don't melt.

And, if you are serving them to kids, slip a cupcake liner through the stick on the bottom to catch any of the messy drips. You'll appreciate it when it's time to clean up.

          10. Which Popsicle mold did you use??

            ReplyDelete
          11. We get our molds from Amazon and eBay. Search ice pop molds, frozen treat molds, popsicle molds.

            Hope that helps.

          13. These look really good. Just be sure you know that if you use the blueberries with dairy they will not have their antioxidant power. I gave up blueberries in my smoothies when I found this out. http://www.naturalnews.com/025516_blueberries_antioxidant_milk.html

          15. Not understanding one part, the recipe and the picture don't seem to match - not sure how you get the light vanilla top if you blended it w/ the blueberries. Am I missing something?

            1. Good point Andie. I made these and split the yogurt added some with the blueberries and some on its own... Here is the recipe for you.

              Fill popsicle molds with 1½ cups yogurt. Layer blueberry mixture on top. Freeze 4-24 hours, until popsicles are frozen through. I like to freeze mine for 24 hours.

              Hope that helps! Donna

            2. sorry, what? You put vanilla yogurt on the bottom (no blueberries), and then put the blueberry mixture on top? Wouldn't the yogurt by itself be very not-sweet? Want to make these for my little grandson and thinking the first bite of tart yogurt would turn him right off.

              Delete
            3. Vanilla flavoured yogurt is already sweetened.

          16. Go with the popsicle sticks! Have you tried Yakult Milk yogurt (with the fruit on the bottom) in the freezer? It's delicious!

          17. I found this recipe a few weeks ago on Pinterest and have been dying to try it. I finally found popsicle molds on sale at Kohls and made them last weekend, but I substituted the blueberries for fresh cherries. I was positively giddy when I tasted them. They were absolutely DELICIOUS. I used vanilla flavored greek yogurt instead of regular vanilla yogurt and they turned out great. No problems with consistency, flavor, or texture. They're really refreshing for summer and I can't wait to try other flavor combinations. Thanks so much for the recipe!! :) This is a summer favorite for sure!

          20. I like the Blueberry, but my favorite fruit is Strawberries so I did the Strawberry Banana and it will become a Summer staple at my house. I have loved everything you have shared. Thanks

          22. Those really look good! I'm a total schmuck when it comes to doing things like this, and I'm struggling to just make a simple frozen yogurt popsicle, but I am very willing to learn, so please give me some advice and tell me what to try next: https://youtu.be/nClSsqNgl0Q
