Popsicles keep popping up everywhere this summer – and for good reason! They are delicious! I just had to join in on sharing the fun with these Greek Yogurt Fruit Protein Popsicles I made!
My 8-year-old son LOVES popsicles. He will eat pretty much any Popsicle under the hot summer sun, so I always try to mix it up for him to give him plenty of variety. One of his absolute favorites is Apple Juice Popsicle’s. There is no recipe for this one guys, just pour apple juice into a Popsicle mold, and freeze. Anytime I make any other flavor Popsicle, I have to make the apple juice Popsicles as well. hose are the extra two Popsicles you’ll see in some of the pictures I show of the Greek Yogurt Fruit Protein Popsicles!

Speaking of Greek Yogurt Fruit Protein Popsicles, let’s get to it, shall we? I wanted to create a healthier Popsicle option for my son, and myself too! I decided on using a vanilla flavored Greek yogurt as the base. The only part my son wanted to help with was smashing up the fruit – of course! We used an old-fashioned mortar and pestle, but you could also toss the fruit into a food processor and pulse a few times for similar results. We mixed the yogurt, fruit, and lemon zest together before pouring it all into Popsicle molds. The amount of each ingredient you will need will depend on the size of the Popsicle molds you use. We used four rocket-pop shaped molds for the recipe below.
After freezing your Popsicles for a few hours, or longer, be very careful when trying to separate them. We ended up breaking one of our molds handles, hence only one blueberry Popsicle made it into the photos! Run them under warm water, while loosening the handle, if you need to, then ENJOY!!
Greek Yogurt Fruit Protein Popsicles
- 1 Cup Vanilla Flavored Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 Cup Berries *we used blueberries and strawberries
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- Add the berries to a food processor and pulse a few times until they form a chunky puree (or smash using a mortar and pestle).
- In a small bowl, combine the vanilla flavored greek yogurt, fruit puree and lemon zest. Divide the mixture evenly into your popsicle molds (we used rocket-pop shaped molds and were able to make 4 popsicles). Freeze thoroughly.
- To separate, loosen the handle of the mold gently, running the popsicle mold under warm water, if necessary. Enjoy!
