These strawberry yogurt popsicles are a creamy cool treat, made with 4 ingredients! Make this yogurt popsicle recipe for a healthy snack or dessert.
Regardless of whether it’s spring, summer or fall (basically any time it’s not freezing outside), I love to make homemade popsicles. They’re a refreshing dessert or snack.
These strawberry yogurt popsicles are so easy to make, and they do a great job taking care of my sweet tooth.
The yogurt adds creaminess which tricks my brain into thinking I’m having something much more decadent, and the granola adds a bit of crunch.
- Fresh strawberries – If you’d like to use frozen whole strawberries, you’ll need to thaw them first.
- Plain, unsweetened yogurt – feel free to use low-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt
- Maple syrup, agave syrup, or honey, to taste
- Granola (either homemade or your favorite brand)
YOGURT POPSICLE RECIPE TIPS
- I used this popsicle maker. Keep in mind that the yield may vary a bit between different brands.
- I prefer using plain, whole milk yogurt for this recipe. For a lighter and even healthier frozen yogurt treat, feel free to use low-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt. Strawberry Greek yogurt popsicles are still incredibly decadent.
- Technically, you could use strawberry yogurt to make them, but I personally dislike sweetened yogurts. They have an artificial taste to me, even if they’re made using real sugar. To make them without refined sugar, I prefer to use maple syrup, honey or agave nectar. This being said, if you use yogurt with sugar in it, simply omit the sweetener and you’ll be set.
- You can use either store-bought granola or your favorite homemade granola recipe. If your granola has larger pieces in it, chop it up a bit with a knife so it’s easier to eat the popsicles.
How Do You Make Popsicles Without a Mold?
While a popsicle mold certainly makes things easier, I understand not wanting to buy a new product you might not use regularly. The two best options are to use a muffin pan or (my preferred choice) yogurt containers.
Thoroughly wash your used yogurt containers and store them until you have enough to use. They’ll be a bit bigger than popsicle molds, so I doubt you’ll need 10.
Add the pureed popsicle ingredients to the containers, cover with foil, and press the popsicle stick through the center (the foil will help them stay in place until the mixture is frozen).
If the popsicle sticks are still having a hard time staying upright, try letting the pops freeze for 45-60 minutes first.

Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles with Granola
- 20 ounces strawberries, hulled
- 1 3/4 cup plain, unsweetened yogurt (I recommend either whole milk or low-fat Greek)
- maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar to taste (I used 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup)
- 1-2 tablespoons granola (Homemade or your favorite brand)
- Puree the strawberries and yogurt in a blender until very smooth.
- Add maple syrup or honey to taste (you can also use a different sweetener or omit entirely).
- Divide evenly between popsicle molds, leaving some space at the top for granola (approximately 1/4-1/2 inch). Sprinkle in the granola and gently press it down to help it adhere.
- Top with popsicle sticks. Freeze until solid, at least 3-4 hours. To serve, briefly run the molds under warm water to help remove the pops.
