Refreshing Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles

Refreshing Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles

 Email

What’s summer without frozen desserts, like ice cream, sorbet or popsicles? These blueberry and Greek yogurt popsicles are deliciously cold, refreshing, and healthier than most store-bought varieties. They’re also incredibly easy to make.


If you don’t like blueberries, or they’re not in season where you live, you can replace them with pretty much any other kind of berry. Pomegranate seeds would work well too.

Simply cook the blueberries with the sugar, salt and lemon juice until they are nice and syrupy, and let the mixture cool to room temperature.


Layer the yogurt and blueberry mixture in the popsicle molds. You could also blend the yogurt and blueberry mixture together and use that to fill the molds, if you prefer.


I made 10 popsicles, but if you use smaller molds, you can definitely make more with this amount.


Put the molds in the freezer overnight until the popsicles are frozen through. Run warm water over the outside and gently ease the popsicles out of the mold. Eat and enjoy!


Ingredients:

  • 3 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1½ cups blueberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt

Directions:

  1. Cook the blueberries with the sugar, lemon juice and salt over medium-low heat, until the sugar dissolves and the blueberries begin to release their juices. Remove from the stove and let mixture cool.
  2. Place a spoonful of yogurt into the bottom of the popsicle molds, then a spoonful of the blueberry mixture. Continue layering until the molds are full. (Alternatively, you can mix the yogurt with the cooked blueberries, and fill up the molds with that.)
  3. Place a popsicle stick in the center of each one, and place in the freezer overnight.

Yields: 10 popsicles

Hi Zippora,

You can order popsicle molds online if you can't find them in a store near you.

It's 1 1/2 cups blueberries. I've fixed that in the recipe, thanks for pointing it out.

Yes, the blueberries should of course be cooked in a dairy or pareve pot. Reply

chocolate coating Hi LR,

Great idea, thanks! Have you tried that? Does the chocolate come out of the mold with the popsicle? I would probably do a chocolate dip after removing the pops from the mold. Reply

1 1/2 blueberries? Two questions:

1. Where do you find popsicle molds?
2. Recipe says 1 1/2 blueberries. Is that supposed to be cups or pints?

and a comment:

Would be nice to remind people to cook the blueberries in a dairy pot to keep the whole thing kosher

thank you Reply

Add chocolate coating, yummy. Enjoy Mrs Szokovski,

How about adding a dark chocolate coating by layer the mold, place it in the fridge to make it firm before adding yoghurt blueberries? It is delish.

Enjoy. Reply
