Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe
As far as the main ingredient goes you could use a dairy free option if need be, Silk has a great vanilla or maple syrup flavored yogurt. Your BEST option though is full fat greek yogurt because of it’s thick texture. Plain greek yogurt works but I prefer vanilla or strawberry for this one over any other. Simple ingredients for fruit pops are best.
- Fresh strawberries
- Dixie paper cups – small size or use larger version
- Wooden taster spoons
You can vary this recipe according to the type of fruit you like. Strawberry works really well though. You could combine fruits and do half strawberry and half blueberry too for your frozen treat.
What I like is you know exactly what you’re including in this recipe and can swap out or omit some ingredients. you can even add some flax seeds into it and your kids wouldn’t know the difference. You will love these homemade popsicles too!

Run hot water over the cup to loosen the popsicles out of the molds and enjoy!
Absolutely! We will show you how to make our homemade Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe right here with it. Use dairy free or Greek yogurt ideally in a mold or we use small Dixie cups with popsicle sticks too.
If you are making homemade popsicles with fruit and yogurt you can add a bit of coconut milk to thin it out and keep them smooth and creamy. Use the full fat canned version. You could add a bit of ice cream into the mix too for a soft texture to them.
You can spray the insides very lightly with non stick spray or just run the mold under hot water for a few seconds to loosen the insides just a bit. Grab ahold of the stick and gently twist for it to pop out and enjoy in one solid piece.

With kiwi and other colorful fruits you too can make these rainbow popsicles that look like fun but taste great too.
If you want to make a large batch of these you could. Just follow the instructions as you see here, remove once solid and transfer them into a freezer bag. To ensure that they don’t stick together, wrap each one in a piece of parchment paper taped at the opening and then store. Then enjoy one at a time out of the bag.
