DIY Yogurt Pops

Summer is a great time to relax and enjoy some simple pleasures, like these yogurt popsicles. They are fruity and refreshing and an even healthier alternative to these pudding pops. They are simple enough that an older child could help or even make them by themselves.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles

  • Yogurt (homemade yogurt flavored any way you like or using one of these frozen yogurt recipes works great!)
  • Popsicle molds or cups and popsicle sticks (or even sturdy straws will work)
  • Baking pans or cookie sheets (This makes transporting them to the freezer easier.)
  1. Spoon the yogurt into popsicle molds or cups. (I usually make each popsicle about 1/4 cup (or 2 oz.), but you can make them any size you like.) Put the cups or molds on a pan or cookie sheet. If using molds, you can insert the sticks now.
  2. If using cups, place in the freezer for an hour or two to allow them to freeze part way, and then insert the sticks. They will stand up much straighter than if you are impatient or in a hurry (like I am sometimes) and stick them in too soon.
  3. Return to the freezer for a few more hours to freeze solid.
  4. Running the cups or molds under warm water for a couple of minutes  makes it easier to get them out.
  5. Enjoy!
