Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles
Are fruit popsicles healthy?
Whether or not your popsicle recipes are healthy really depends on what you put in them. If they contain yogurt and fresh fruit, or they’re made without a lot of added sugar, chances are they are a healthy frozen treat!
That’s why yogurt popsicles are such a favorite of mine. They contain only one tablespoon of added sweetness from the honey. LOADS of fresh blueberries and vanilla yogurt – you can’t go wrong!
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.
Ingredients in Vanilla Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles
All of the ingredients in these Greek yogurt 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.
Dairy Free Yogurt Pops
If you want coconut milk popsicles, you can add coconut yogurt rather than traditional Greek yogurt, for a lactose-free popsicle recipe. Or, you could try another plant-based yogurt like soy or almond.
Pro Tips for Making Greek Yogurt Popsicles
- For a creamier consistency.
If you’re wondering how to make popsicles creamy, not icy, it’s the addition of the yogurt that adds creaminess these blueberry popsicles.
- Let them freeze completely.
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, just to make sure everything is solid. So, make sure you plan ahead and make them the day before you want to enjoy them.
If you’re planning on serving the blueberry yogurt popsicles 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.
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
