4-Ingredient Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

Aaaaaand, I’m back!  I got home from vacation the other day and I’ve been slowly easing back into real life.  I stress the slowly part.  Turks and Caicos is absolutely beautiful!  It was great to get away and take a break!  I’ll be sharing a recap and tons of photos soon!

Last week I had a hard time moving from fast-paced city life into island time, and this morning city life is feeling way too rushed for me.

Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

Since I’m still kind of in vacation mode I thought it would be a great day for popsicles!  Although, let’s be real, every day is pretty much a great day for popsicles…especially when it involves strawberries and Greek yogurt.

With just 4 ingredients – most of which I bet you have in your fridge right now – Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles are a definite summer essential!

4-Ingredient Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

Yield: Makes 10 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled & chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth.

Divide the mixture between popsicle molds. Place the molds in the freezer for at least 4 hours, until the popsicles are completely frozen.

To remove the popsicles, run the molds under hot water for a few seconds.

Notes

I’m SERIOUSLY considering investing in a popsicle mold. I love popsicles too (loving the idea of these and my childhood favorites are Fudgesicles and Creamsicles :) ) and think there’s serious economic/foodie savvy in being able to make your own! Pinning now!

Thanks, friend! Vacation was amazing. The only thing that made coming home & back to real life easier was coming back to a freezer full of these popsicles :)

Your vacation looked amazing! I’m so glad you had a great time. I’m going to pretend I’m on vacation by eating a bazillion of these yummy popsicles in my backyard. ;)

Thanks, Steph! I totally endorse your plan of action :)

No popsicle molds or sticks in my kitchen. I have the feeling that if I were to buy them they would just end up in the back of a cabinet with all the other doo-dads cluttering my storage space. I could go the small jars/spoon route but…
what about freezing the batch in a container and scooping out portions?

Looking forward to responses from you and your readers!

I have a feeling you’d use a popsicle mold more than you think. Alternatively, you can freeze them in ice cube trays or dixie cups and use either popsicle or lollipop sticks. Enjoy, Sandra!

Hard as it may be for some to wrap their heads around, we are just not popsicle people in our house. Seriously. No kids, other than those with paws and tails) and all our younger visitors (toddlers and older) are bowl and spoon users too.

Trust me, I’ve tried over the years. But bottomline is that any time we’ve tried frozen treats on sticks the end result is otherwise perfectly good goodies that have sat in the freezer far past their edible peak. This is not just for popsicles but regular ice cream yummies as well. Now, a quart container of ice cream? Gone in 60 Seconds!

We aren’t even avid ice cube users. We just keep some on hand for anyone coming over that likes iced drinks.

So, the freeze and scoop method is not viable at all?

Thanks for your quick response Kelli

It’s certainly viable. But keep in mind that it will not have the same consistency as ice cream (or the like), as it gets much harder when it freezes.

There is a method I have read about but not tried. Yipes, I can’t remember the proper term for it…you or one of your other readers may know it though. It’s time consuming, which does take the ease of popsicles out of the equation.

You pour the mixture into a shallow container and freeze for an hour or until it is hard but not so much so that it is not rock hard. Then, using a fork, you scrape thru to “fluff” up the entire batch. If you do that 2-4 times, in theory, when you are done you will have a softer, creamier end result…kind of like a poorman’s ice cream if you don’t have an ice cream maker, which of course I don’t have either.

I’ll have to look through my pinned recipes to find the one I’m thinking of as your idea sounds like the perfect base to experiment with!

If you don’t mind Kelli, I will keep you posted on how it works.

Thanks again for your quick response…

It sounds like your describing a granita. I’m not sure how well this recipe will work for that. I shared a recipe for cantaloupe sorbet that may work well for you.

Hi Kelli,

Is the lemon juice absolutely necessary? Just curious, since I think it would make the strawberries more tart. Also, do you use plain yogurt or vanilla? Have you tried them with strawberry yogurt?

Thanks for your time and recipes!

The lemon juice certainly doesn’t make the strawberries part. You can omit it if you wish. I use plain yogurt, however you can also use vanilla or strawberry. Enjoy!
