These Strawberry Greek Frozen Yogurt Pops are a warm-weather staple in our house. Not only are they sweet, tangy, and nutritious, but they are a cinch to make. This frozen yogurt recipe is versatile so you can change it up all year long and it’s super healthy for the whole family!
Whenever the weather warms up, I get a crazy urge to make piles of freezer pops. We have them as afternoon snacks out in the backyard on the weekend and I love that they taste like a total treat but are actually made with simple, nutritious ingredients. We love these Strawberry Greek Frozen Yogurt pops because they’re creamy, fresh, and are so quick to mix up. I have to admit that I love them as much as my kids do, though I thankfully don’t get quite as messy eating them as my girls!
How to Make Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops Step-by-Step
Here’s a look at how to make these simple freezer pops.
- Add the strawberries, plain yogurt, honey, vanilla, and fresh lemon juice to a blender or food processor. Blend to combine well.
- Pour into small plastic cups or reusable freezer pop molds.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Place a popsicle stick into the centers if using cups. Add strawberry slices if you’d like!
- Remove from the molds or cups and enjoy.
Best Mold for Homemade Freezer Pops
When I make these for a crowd (which I often do for parties!), I use small plastic bathroom cups. When I make them for my girls, I use our favorite Zoku Classic Pop Molds. They release super easily and seem to be very durable. (Bon Appetit ranked them as their favorite too last summer and I totally agree!) We love them! We also have these mini ones which are a great size for babies and younger toddlers.
How to Make Frozen Yogurt Without an Ice Cream Machine
You 100% don’t need an ice cream machine to make this recipe! You simply stir the ingredients together and spoon or pour it into molds. It sets up and is super creamy when you eat them. They taste best if you let them sit at room temperature for at least 5 minutes before storing so they soften up just softly.
How to Make these Freezer Pops without a Blender or Food Processor
We like to blend the mixture so it’s nice and smooth and creamy, but you can totally just stir everything together. There will be little chunks of strawberries, but they’ll still taste great!
Tips for Recipe Success
- When you’re done blending the ingredients together, taste it for sweetness and if it doesn’t taste sweet enough, add a touch more. They will taste the same when frozen, so this is your best bet!
- Use yogurt with fat it in it. This will enhance the creamy texture, offer the fats that your toddler’s brains need, and will just taste better.
- Use strawberries that taste good when you try them fresh! This can impact how much sweetener (if any!) you need so taste them as you go.
- Run the molds or cups under warm water if needed to help them release easily.
Can I make this with other fruit?
You can use any berry that you like including raspberries or blueberries, or even try stone fruit like peaches or apricots. We also like these with fresh or frozen mango. Play around, it’s a very versatile recipe!Print
With bright berry flavor and a creamy texture, these freezer pops are a delicious and nutritious dessert or snack. If making these for a baby, omit the optional sweetener.
- 12 ounces plain Greek yogurt (2% or 4%; 2–6 ounce containers)
- 2 cups hulled and diced strawberries
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or blender and grind until well combined, about 10 seconds, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Taste and adjust sweetness if needed.
- Divide the yogurt mixture evenly among reusable molds or 3-ounce plastic cups placed on a plate or a small baking dish. If using cups, place a popsicle stick into the center and surround with sliced strawberries, if desired.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
- Store any remaining pops made in cups in a zip top freezer bag or cover individually with plastic wrap. To serve, snip the cup with scissors and peel away the cup.
Use blueberries instead of strawberries.
Stir together the ingredients instead of using the food processor for pops with bigger berry pieces.
