You’re going to love this recipe for Strawberry Granola Yogurt Popsicles. They’re an easy, healthy snack (or dessert) with only a few ingredients and just the right amount of sweetness. Simply blend, freeze and serve!
Sometimes the world throws unexpected curve balls at you. After initially planning to spend my summer revamping this site, I had to redirect my attention elsewhere. Between several trips out of town, an unexpected and amazing new freelance gig at The Washington Post (stay tuned for more info; it’s not live yet), and a few other bits and bobs, the blog has been very quiet lately.
Even though summer is starting to wind down, I have an popsicle recipe I’m excited to share! This has become one of my favorite healthy treats recently. It functions as both a snack and a dessert, satisfying my ever persistent sweet tooth. If you’re a regular around here, it will come as no surprise that I’ve teamed up with California Strawberries for this recipe.
I love using plain, whole milk yogurt for these strawberry pops, but you could also use fat free greek yogurt if you prefer to keep them lighter. You could even use strawberry yogurt, but I personally dislike sweetened options. They have an artificial taste to me, even if they’re made using real sugar. I prefer to sweeten the popsicles myself using maple syrup or honey.
This recipe can easily be tweaked depending on your personal preference. If you want to use sweetened yogurt, simply omit the sweetener and you’re set. You can also use either store-bought granola or your favorite recipe.
I used this popsicle maker. Use what you have, but keep in mind that the yield may vary.
Strawberries are the way to go for healthy popsicles! Just one serving is packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, potassium,and folate. It doesn’t get any better, am I right? Be sure to check out some of my other strawberry recipes!
Wondering how to choose the best strawberries?
Look for bright red berries that don’t have white around the stems. Ideally, the green tops (also known as the calyx) should be bright green. Don’t worry about the size.
These Strawberry Granola Yogurt Popsicles are an easy, healthy snack or dessert. Simply blend, freeze and serve!
- 20 ounces California Strawberries, hulled
- 1 3/4 cup plain, unsweetened yogurt (either whole milk or greek)
- Maple syrup or honey 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 pack it in.
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.
I used this popsicle maker. Any brand will work, but different molds might use slightly more or less mix.
