As a Registered Dietitian with a sweet tooth, I love to create delicious healthy dessert recipes made with wholesome ingredients. In the summertime, frozen desserts are my favorite – have you tried my healthy homemade frozen Greek yogurt yet?

You’re going to love these strawberry Greek yogurt popsicles for a healthy frozen dessert or cold refreshing snack. Nutritious Greek yogurt is not only super creamy in texture, it’s also packed with nutrients including protein and calcium!

Besides Greek yogurt, you need just a handful of ingredients and a blender to prepare these pops. They only take a few minutes to make, then just stash them in the freezer until hardened.

This recipe makes about 8 popsicles. It’s vegetarian, gluten free, soy free, and nut free.

Ingredients

Everything you need to make this recipe, below:

  • Plain Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is higher in protein than regular yogurt, and it has a thicker, creamier texture. Read all about the nutrition benefits of Greek yogurt here! For this recipe, I recommend using full fat or 2% fat plain Greek yogurt because it is richer, creamier, and less tart than nonfat Greek yogurt.
  • Strawberries (fresh or frozen): You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries in this recipe. If you opt for fresh strawberries, taste them first to make sure they are sweet, flavorful, and ripe. This recipe is a perfect way to use in-season strawberries in the summertime! Choose frozen strawberries if the fresh ones are not at their peak deliciousness.
  • Honey: A bit of honey adds the perfect amount of sweetness and pairs well with Greek yogurt. If you plan to serve these popsicles to babies less than 1 year of age (or simply if you prefer it), use maple syrup instead of honey.
  • Milk: You need just half a cup of milk to get the ingredients blending up nice and smoothly if you use frozen strawberries. Milk is especially necessary if you use frozen strawberries. I used regular dairy milk, but use whatever milk you have/you prefer.
  • Vanilla extract: This enhances all the flavors in these popsicles.

Kitchen equipment needed

  • Blender – If you don’t have a blender, you could try and make this recipe using a food processor. However, the popsicles may not be quite as creamy!
  • Popsicle molds – I’ve used both this type of mold and the ones you see pictured in this post.
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons

What to use instead of popsicle molds: If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can make popsicles in small paper or plastic cups.
