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!

These look so good! My son (and lets be real me too) would love these!
These will be such a refreshing treat after my kids get home from tennis.
Anne Murphy says
It was orange juice, when I was a kid… LOL I have to try the Greek yogurt ones, though. Every bit of protein I can give the parents helps…
These look so good Lauren, YUM!!!! It is hot here in Queensland, Australia and I am always looking for refreshing recipes for my family. LOVE these, can’t wait to try them.
These look so delicious! My kids would love it. I love greek yogurt, it is perfect with any fruits.

These look delicious! I’ll have to try them instead of my usual greek yogurt/fruit drink in the mornings

These look like fun popsicles to make! Had no idea that they had such a product on Amazon to make popsicles. So neat!
Thanks Crystal! I actually have no idea where we got our popsicle molds but decided to check Amazon and boom! There they were. No surprise really, they have everything!
These look delicious! What an awesome summer treat. I’d love to make these while it’s still hot outside!
Thanks Theresa! It’s still SO hot here!
Aimee @ MamaCentric says
What a perfect summer recipe! We still have a month or so of unbearable heat here in Texas – will have to give these a try. (Love the popsicle molds, too!)
Thank you Aimee! We are still having some crazy hot weather out here on the East Coast as well!
This looks so yummy and easy to make! Gonna have to try this with my little one. I’m sure she will love it!

Yum! These look delicious! I love Greek Yogurt, so this sounds like the perfect summer treat. 🙂
I’m an adult and I still love popsicles! Especially during the summer, they are just the perfect treat! Will have to try these out! They look and sound so yummy!
🙂 I don’t see anything wrong with an adult having popsicles – ice cream of any kind is definitely a guilty pleasure for the adults in my home for sure!

Brianna Leigh says
This is a great idea! I normally make smoothies in the morning for breakfast with yogurt and fruit but this would be even better on a hot day!
These are perfect for a hot day – we’ve had such a hot summer this year, I just had to make popsicles!

These look cool, healthy and delicious. Great for summer. If I didn’t already have popsicle forms, those rockets would be ordered in a heartbeat.

JoJo Tabares says
OMGOSH they look sooo good! Yummy!!
Saved to my yummly!
Popscicles are a big favorite in our house too. Love those molds!
Kristin Cook says
Sounds yummy! I am not a big fan of Greek yogurt, but I could probably do the same thing with regular yogurt, and just lose a little of the protein?
Thanks for sharing!
I think it would work out just fine 🙂
Ashley Stephenson says
I love Popsicles too! These greek yogurt ones would be perfect! I hate to admit it but I have never made popsicles, but it seems like a good idea!
It’s so easy – and kids love it!
Yogurt and fruit pops are the best. I like serving my family great tasting food plus healthy treats.
Yes they are! 🙂
Jamie Simons says
Those look amazing! I need a good way to get in some more protein. I think I will be making these soon!!
Oh YUM!! My little girls will LOVE these, and much healthier than those store bought things! Thank you so much for sharing!
Thanks for stopping by – hope they love them!
