Besides standing next to an open refrigerator, a cold refreshing popsicle is the best way to beat the summertime heat. With temperatures rising in Southern California, it’s tempting not to hit the closest frozen yogurt shop or McDonald’s drive through for a vanilla cone!
Being 7 months pregnant with cravings, I’ve been indulging a bit too frequently, so I decided to make a healthier dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard on the calories.
Adding fresh seasonal berries to your favorite yogurt is a quick and easy way to create dessert at home, and you get to create the flavor. I hope you enjoy cooling down with my easy three ingredient strawberry yogurt granola popsicles!
I love making popsicles with my Norpro Ice Pop Maker that I purchased on Amazon. If you are looking to make some fancy popsicles with the latest popsicle technology, Zoku brand popsicle molds are really neat too.
Local strawberries have been super sweet this season, so I used my Vitamix Blender to create a blend with vanilla yogurt. You can use any berries you like or even yogurt. Greek-style yogurt works well too for some extra protein!
Yogurts can be pretty high in added sugar, so I make sure to read the nutritional labels before. If you want the popsicles a bit sweeter, you can always add some honey or agave to the yogurt.
For some extra texture and flavor, I added the diced strawberries and granola in the popsicles. These strawberry yogurt granola popsicles are less than 100 calories per pop, the perfect healthy snack or dessert on a hot day! Don’t like strawberries?
