These strawberry frozen yogurt pops are a fun and easy way to beat the heat when the temps are rising and you want a cold dessert to cool down. They have a rich red color and are not overly sweet. The taste is summer time fresh!
Fresh strawberries make such a great addition to desserts. They are fresh and naturally low in calories and very tasty. (See my recipe for strawberry oatmeal bars here.)
Making these strawberry frozen yogurt pops.
I love cold summer desserts. There is nothing like biting into a home made Popsicle that you have made with fresh ingredients to beat the heat. They are super easy to make, the kids love them and you know that you have added healthy ingredients.
These strawberry frozen yogurt pops need just four ingredients: Greek vanilla yogurt, coconut milk, honey and fresh strawberries. I kept the sugar content low since I am tying to eat as little sugar as possible lately. They are just sweet enough to taste great, but not so sweet that they wake up my sleeping sugar dragon!
I used a food processor to make these. It was super quick and gave me the consistency I wanted in no time at all. The hardest part of making them was taking the pictures before they melted – but only a mad food blogger lady like me has that problem!
After I had my yogurt mixture ready, it was easy to assemble the pops.
All I needed to do was to finely chop another 1/4 of the strawberries. This gives the pops some texture and color that I like. Next, I placed a bit of the mixture in the bottom of the Popsicle molds, added a few pieces of the chopped strawberries, poured in some more of the yogurt mixture and so on until the molds were full. Easy peasy!
TIP: use a funnel to fill the molds. It makes it much easier than trying to pour straight from the food processor or spooning the mixture in. (Don’t ask me how I know this!)
Tap, tap, tap on the mold base to release the air bubbles and the pops are ready to freeze. Then, into the freezer they went for about four hours to set. All you need to do at serving time is to run some warm water on the outside and serve.
Each bite is cool, fresh and full of summer time flavor.
This recipe is easily adaptable for whatever fruit you have on hand. Just switch up the fruit and yogurt flavor and you are good to go! They can be made as these are with the combination of Greek yogurt and coconut milk, or just the yogurt for a more creamy version. See a patriotic red white and blue Popsicle version here.
I got 6 large pops and four small ones out of the recipe which makes them much cheaper than buying store bought frozen yogurt pops.
And best of all, these strawberry frozen yogurt pops work out to just over 50 calories each, so they won’t break the diet bank.
