4 Greek yogurt popsicles to quell your summer sweet tooth

I started blogging in 2012. when my kids were young because it combined my passions, design, cooking, decorating, photography, graphic art, & web design.

Made with fresh fruit and Greek yogurt, these popsicles beat the store-bought kind any day

During these hot months, one of my kid's all-time-favorite treats are popsicles. They are quick, easy and taste soooo good. I wanted to create a healthier version of one of our all-time-favorite snacks — something my kids would eat and have no idea that they are a notch healthier than the store-bought versions.

I decided to go with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit. Here are a few of the recipes I came up with...

Chocolate-covered strawberry and Greek yogurt pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 carton of fresh strawberries
  • 32 ounces strawberry-flavored Greek yogurt
  • 12 ounces dark melting wafers for candy making and dipping (I used Ghirardelli)

Directions:

  1. Cut the tops off of the strawberries.
  2. Place the strawberries in a food processor or blender and puree them. Place 1/4 of the mixture aside.
  3. Combine the yogurt and the remaining 3/4 of the strawberry mixture in a medium sized bowl. Stir it until blended.
  4. Fill your popsicle molds 7/8 full with the yogurt mixture. Scoop the remaining strawberry puree on top to fill the molds completely.
  5. Add the popsicle sticks and freeze them completely.
  6. When the popsicles are completely frozen, run hot water on the outside of their molds. They should break free and come out easily.
  7. Melt the chocolates in the microwave. Place them in a glass mixing bowl. Microwave them for one minute. Take them out and stir them. If they are not completely melted, you can microwave them in 20-second intervals, stirring in between until they are.
  8. Dip the popsicles into the chocolate. Hold them up for a minute while the chocolate hardens. This happens pretty quickly.

They are now ready to enjoy!

Fresh Blueberry & Greek Yogurt Popsicles

Ingredients:

  • 1 carton of fresh blueberries
  • 32 ounces honey-sweetened Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk

  2. Combine the blueberry puree with the coconut milk.

You can easily change ingredients as needed to fit the needs of your family. For example, I used sweetened yogurt but you can use unsweetened or you can add your own sweeteners — such as honey, sugar, brown sugar etc. — to any of the the fruit-and-yogurt mixtures.

It's so easy and completely up to you!
