Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles with Granola

Strawberry yogurt popsicles are your healthy frozen treat solution! Besides standing next to an open refrigerator on a hot day, these cold refreshing popsicles are the best way to beat the summer heat. With temperatures rising, instead of indulging in scoops of heavy ice cream, prepare this healthier dessert option to satisfy your sweet tooth without going overboard on the calories.

How to make healthy popsicles

I’ve been looking for popsicles that I would feel good about feeding to my family. Unfortunately, I’ve been disappointed with the supermarket selections. Store-bought varieties are either packed with sugar, high fructose corn syrup or artificial color. So I took charge and decided to make some homemade healthy popsicles.

Popsicle Mold

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 also a good option.

Fruit and yogurt

Local strawberries have been super sweet this season, so I used my blender to create a blend with vanilla yogurt. You can use any berries or yogurt you like. Greek-style yogurt works well for some extra protein and probiotics!

Reducing added sugar

Yogurt can be pretty high in added sugar, so I make sure to read the nutritional labels. I often chose one that has been naturally sweetened with stevia to add no additional calories. Using plain yogurt is also great because the berries are already sweet, and you can just add a small amount of honey, maple syrup or agave for a hint of additional sweetness. This gives you natural fruit sugars (fructose) from the fruit, instead of a high amount of added refined sugar.

Mix-ins

For some extra texture and flavor, I added diced strawberries and granola in the popsicles. I also like to layer the popsicles for a different flavor in each bite and a prettier appearance.

These strawberry yogurt popsicles with granola are less than 100 calories per pop, the perfect healthy snack or dessert on a hot day! Don’t like strawberries? You can check out my other homemade fruit popsicles recipes with FOUR more flavor ideas.

What to know about freezing temperatures

To achieve the smoothest texture from a frozen popsicle, fast freezing, and very low temperatures would produce the smallest ice crystals and best texture. Unfortunately, our freezers at home have the slowest rates of freezing. The temperatures are typically set to −18 °C (0 ºF) or lower. However, it will take at least 30 minutes for even the water to become frozen then require additional time for the dissolved solids to freeze.
