You’re going to love this recipe for strawberry granola yogurt popsicles. They’re an easy, healthy snack or dessert, with only 4 ingredients and just the right amount of sweetness. Granola adds a bit of crunch. Simply blend, freeze and serve for perfect, creamy homemade popsicles!
Regardless of whether it’s spring, summer or fall (basically any time it’s not freezing outside), I love making homemade popsicles. They’re a refreshing dessert or snack.
These strawberry 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.
Strawberry Granola Yogurt Popsicle Ingredients
- Fresh strawberries
- Plain, unsweetened yogurt
- Maple syrup or honey to taste
- Granola (either homemade or your favorite brand)
Tips For The Best Homemade Popsicles
- I used this popsicle maker. Keep in mind that the yield may vary a bit between different popsicle makers.
- I prefer using plain, whole milk yogurt for these strawberry pops, but you can also use low-fat or fat-free greek yogurt if you prefer to keep them even lighter. Greek yogurt popsicles are still incredibly decadent.
- You could technically use strawberry yogurt for these homemade popsicles, but I personally dislike sweetened yogurts. They have an artificial taste to me, even if they’re made using real sugar. I prefer to use maple syrup, honey or agave nectar. However, if you want to use sweetened yogurt, simply omit the sweetener and you’re 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 popsicles sticks are still having a hard time staying upright, try letting the pops freeze for 45-60 minutes first.

Strawberry Granola Yogurt Popsicles
- 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.
