Sweet, creamy, delicious, healthy, and only four ingredients! What more could you want?
This popsicle recipe is quick and easy to whip together, and can be eaten frozen or not. It’s delicious both ways! It comes together in just a few minutes, so the hardest part is simply waiting for it to freeze. I used fresh strawberries for these particular pops, but the recipe is really interchangeable with almost any fruit. Blueberries, peaches, raspberries, and even cherries would make great additions to these ice pops – and even some whole fruit would go nicely!
If you don’t have popsicle molds on hand or you don’t feel like buying them, paper cups also work well for freezing these popsicles!
You can find a link here for the Popsicle molds I found on Amazon, but they pretty much sell them everywhere when summer rolls around.
Get creative and add what you like! Chocolate chips, shredded coconut, you name it!
Let me know how they turn out!
To start, I took a pint (or 2 cups) of washed strawberries with removed stems and added them to a blender with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla. I blended it until it was nice and smooth and holy wow did it smell like pure summertime goodness! After it was blended I poured the mixture into a nice big mixing bowl.
Then I added two heaping cups of Greek yogurt. I like Greek yogurt here because it’s slightly thicker and creamier, and makes for a better popsicle. I whisked in the yogurt with the strawberry mixture until all the lumps were smooth. You can also just add the yogurt to the blender and mix that for a few seconds, but I decided to go ahead and get an arm workout in!
Here is where I realized it was going to be difficult to pour the popsicle mixture into the molds without a pout spout. Obviously if you have a spout on the blender/bowl you used, skip this step, but it’s much easier and less clean up!
Once it was in a pourable device, I filled the molds to the top with the popsicle mix and popped in the sticks.
I let these ones freeze overnight before messing with them, to make sure they were nice and set. It usually takes a good 6 hours until they are able to be removed
To remove them from the molds, dip them in hot water for about 5-10 seconds and they should slide right out. If you’re using paper cups you can either dip them in hot water or remove them by cutting them away.
Enjoy these delicious and healthy summer ice pops!
