Cool down with these sweet, 5-ingredient popsicles.
Easy to make, healthy, delicious, and colorful — what else can you ask for in these fruity frozen yogurt pops? Made with fresh and frozen fruit and low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt, you, your kids, and your friends are sure to love these on a warm summer afternoon. And don’t worry if you don’t have mixed frozen berries in the freezer — any fruit on hand will do! Papaya, orange, or peach also make for great, refreshing fruity frozen yogurt pops.
The Right Popsicle Mold and Ingredients
Personally, I prefer to use reusable popsicle sticks. I think they’re prettier, easier for the kiddos to hold, and since I make them so often, they save me some money, too. That said, you can always go with the classic wooden popsicle stick. This option is a bit more nostalgic and gives the popsicle a more authentic look and feel. Plus, you can eat your fruity frozen yogurt anywhere and simply dispose of the wooden stick. It’s totally up to you!
Next, you’ll want the right kind of sweetener. I’ve made them with white sugar, honey, and agave. Either one will do just fine. However, honey is a natural, less processed sweetener and therefore healthier. You only need a tablespoon of honey for all six popsicles just to hide the bitterness from berries and Greek yogurt.
As far as yogurt goes, flavored low-fat Greek yogurt is my favorite. You don’t necessarily have to go with vanilla — that’s just my personal taste. Blueberry or honey Greek yogurt would also go well with this recipe. It also doesn’t have to be low-fat Greek yogurt or even Greek yogurt at all. Regular flavored yogurt would taste great as well, but they will be sweeter and have more calories.
How to Make Tie-Dye Fruity Frozen Yogurt Pops!
If you’ve done a Google search for fruity frozen yogurt pops, you might have seen the pops with the tie-dye swirl look. It’s actually not that difficult to achieve that look if you want your pops to really stand out and impress. You simply mix the berries and white Greek yogurt lightly to ensure the mixture isn’t fully blended together. This will create a cool-looking popsicle and also leave some bigger chunks of berries. Then, just pour, freeze, and enjoy! YUM.
Protein-Packed, 5-Ingredient, Gluten-Free Treat!
With the addition of Greek yogurt, these pops are a great source of healthy protein. Just one serving of low-fat Greek yogurt can have 12 to 17 grams of protein. Greek yogurt may also be easier to digest for those with lactose intolerances. Plus, it’s packed with probiotics to support healthy bacteria in the gut.
And don’t forget about Vitamin B-12! Greek yogurt is full of Vitamin B-12, which your body needs for healthy brain function and red blood cells to form. For our vegetarian readers, Greek yogurt is an excellent meat-free alternative to add more Vitamin B-12 to your diet.
