Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles taste like Summer….
Fresh local strawberries, whipping cream, tart Greek Yogurt and rich honey make the most spectacular treat, and it’s good for you too. Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles are luscious and light all at the same time. As far as treats go they are relatively healthy, and definitely kid friendly.
I also love the fact that there are very few ingredients and the prep is very easy. You do have to plan ahead at least 6 hours and preferably the day before to allow the yogurt to completely freeze.
Can I substitute another fruit for Strawberries?
100% yes you can! A few key things to keep in mind when making substitutions.
- Ensure that you select a fruit that is on the sweeter side. Greek yogurt can be quite tart, and you want the natural sweetness from your fruit to help balance that out.
- Use in season, ripe fruit for the best results. There aren’t many ingredients in this recipe, so it’s important that you use the best ingredients you can find.
- Select fruit that freezes well. Berries do exceptionally well frozen, as do peaches, nectarines, pineapple, and cherries (make sure to pit them first).

Pro Tip for the best popsicles
- Go for the full fat in this one. Heavy Cream, also know as whipping cream or 35% cream is luscious and sweet. It adds body, richness and sweetness all at the same time. It’s one of the few ingredients where I highly recommend using organic if you can.
- Greek Yogurt should also be full fat. Low fat versions have more water in them and produce more ice as a result. The fuller fat Greek Yogurt will give you a smooth, creamy Popsicle.
