Beat the heat this summer with my Strawberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles- a fun and nutritious summer treat that both kids and adults will love.
There are few things as refreshing as an ice cold popsicle when you’re trying to beat the summer heat. These Strawberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles are a fun and nutritious summer treat! Tangy Greek yogurt is layered with sweet, fresh strawberries, which are abundant this time of year- yum!.
I use Greek yogurt in these popsicles. Greek yogurt is one of my favorite ingredients- not only is it healthy but it’s also delicious and so versatile. While most people have tried Greek yogurt plain or perhaps topped with fruit or granola, it can actually be used in a very wide variety of dishes, both savory and sweet. It’s is a nice healthy substitute for high calorie condiments like mayonnaise and sour cream. It can also be added to sauces, soups and pasta dishes to add creaminess without adding any fat. You can even use it in desserts like cakes, cheesecake and pudding. To read all about Greek yogurt, CLICK HERE.
How to Make Strawberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles
- Place strawberries and honey together in a food processor.
- Mix the yogurt and honey together in a bowl. Layer the strawberry puree and yogurt in popsicle molds.
- Freeze until solid. Then when you’re ready to eat them, dip the popsicle mold in warm water and pull them out. That’s it!
Strawberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles
- 2 cups sliced strawberries (10 ounces)
- 3 tablespoons honey or other sweetener of your choice
- 1 ½ cups vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
- Place the strawberries and 2 tablespoons honey in a food processor and puree until it is smooth with some small chunks of fruit.
- Mix the yogurt and remaining tablespoon honey in a bowl until smooth.
- Spoon 2-3 teaspoons of the strawberry puree into the bottom of each popsicle mold and then spoon about 1 ½ tablespoons yogurt on top of the fruit. Repeat with another layer each of strawberry puree and yogurt.
- Place the popsicle sticks into the popsicles, cover and freeze for a few hours until solid. Alternatively, if you don’t have popsicle molds, you can use small paper cups. To unmold, dip the popsicle molds in warm water to loosen them and then pull the popsicles out.
