These Greek yogurt raspberry popsicles are just to die for. I have had my popsicle mold for quite sometime now and while I have used it somewhat the past week or so I have used it a lot. I have made a few different variations this week and even though I love this little popsicle tool, I think my kids love it even more.
If you have never made your own popsicles before I urge to make some, these Greek yogurt raspberry popsicles are awesome. They are great on the go, as a snack or as a healthy treat for the kids. Get yourself a pospicle mold and start making your own.
Let’s talk greek yogurt pops:
– You can use your favorite berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or mix them all!
– sugar is optional: I used a vanilla greek yogurt that wasn’t very sweet and my berries were tart, so I added the sugar. Test your greek yogurt for sweetness. If It’s sweet enough for your taste, omit the sugar.
– Greek yogurt: Try different flavors! I used vanilla because it pairs beautifully with raspberries. Try using coconut flavored, key lime, or what ever you like! The possibilities are endless!
– Mixing: I like the marble effect that barely mixing the ingredients gives. It also gives a good variation in flavor, from the sweet yogurt and the tart berries. If you want the fruit yogurt bars to be consistent in flavor from bite to bite, just mix the ingredients completely.
Raspberry Cream Greek Yogurt Pops
4 hours 5 mins
Serves: 10 big popsicles or 20 mini pops
12 oz fresh or frozen raspberries
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2¼ cups vanilla greek yogurt (any fat content, 0%,1%, or 2%)
¼ cup heavy cream (half and half works too)
- In a medium bowl, combine the raspberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar and let sit for 5 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the yogurt mix. Combine the ¼ cup sugar, vanilla yogurt, and heavy cream in a large bowl.
- Whisk the mixture until all the sugar dissolves completely. Using a fork, mash the raspberries until they break down. Add the raspberries to the yogurt mixture. Using a spatula just fold the raspberries in for a marbled effect.
- This will provide both sweet and tart bites. Alternately, you can combine the raspberries with yogurt until an even color forms. This will result in an even flavor distribution.
- Pour the mixture into the ice pop molds. Cover molds and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove from molds and serve immediately.
