With just a handful of ingredients, you can enjoy these Easy Greek Yogurt Popsicles. Mix your favorite fruit or granola into a single serve container of Oikos® Nonfat yogurt, insert a popsicle stick, and freeze until firm. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
This is the easiest frozen yogurt you will ever make. Seriously!
I’ve made frozen yogurt before in an ice cream maker and it turned out so good but it’s also a lot of work. Plus there’s extra cleanup involved.
Today’s method for making frozen yogurt is a game changer. Let’s go over the process.
Choose a quality Greek yogurt.
My favorite yogurt to use is Dannon® Oikos®. They have a few different varieties but today we’re focusing on the single serve Nonfat vanilla flavor. It’s the best choice for easy yogurt popsicles.
If you want to add some extra flavor, I suggest trying out the Blueberry, Peach, or
Strawberry – so much flavor in one just one serving of yogurt!
First of all the Greek yogurt is thick and creamy making it the perfect base for add-ins. And each 5.3-ounce container contains 11 to 15g of protein. Dairy protein contains amino acids that help the human body create its own proteins.
And secondly, vanilla is such a versatile flavor, you can add in any fruit or granola to make it extra delicious.
I was able to find single serve containers of Dannon Oikos in the dairy aisle at Walmart.
Choose your add-ins.
I’m going to share four different flavor options for homemade Greek yogurt popsicles but the possibilities are endless. Choose your own favorite fruits and switch it up with every cup.
- Roasted banana
- Jam or preserves
- Mixed berries and honey
Select your flavor option and stir it right into an individual container of Oikos vanilla Greek yogurt.
There’s enough room in the single serve containers to mix in about 3 tablespoons of your preferred add-in.
What’s the best way to freeze these easy Greek yogurt popsicles?
The great thing about using individual containers of yogurt is they freeze well right in the original container. You don’t need special popsicle molds or small cups.
Just mix everything together in the container, cover it tightly with aluminum foil, and push a popsicle stick through the center.
They can go directly in the freezer this way and will take about 3 hours to set. Easy peasy and mess free!
Unmolding the popsicles.
Some methods say to cut the container away from the popsicle but honestly, that’s a lot of work for a frozen yogurt pop. This doesn’t have to be a tricky process.
The best way to get the popsicles out of the container is to dip them in warm water for a few seconds. Remove the foil and dip the popsicle far enough for the water to up all the way up the sides without spilling over into the cup.
Hold it in the water and count to 5. Lift it out of the water and gently squeeze the cup with one hand while holding the stick with the other. The pop should slip right out. If it doesn’t, dip it again for another 5 seconds.
These popsicles are cool, refreshing, and good for you. They’re perfectly creamy, tangy and sweet while using very few ingredients. Enjoy.
Easy Greek Yogurt Popsicles
With just a handful of ingredients, you can enjoy these Easy Greek Yogurt Popsicles. Mix your favorite fruit or granola into a single serve container of Oikos Nonfat yogurt, insert a popsicle stick, and freeze until firm. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
- 4 single serve containers of Dannon Oikos Nonfat Vanilla Greek Yogurt (5.3 ounces each)
- 2 small bananas roasted*
- 3/4 cup granola any flavor
- 3/4 cup jam use your favorite flavor
- 3/4 cup chopped mixed berries such as strawberries and blueberries
- 1 tablespoon honey
Remove the lid from the individual yogurt containers and divide your choice of topping among each (or mix and match toppings). Stir well to combine. Cover the yogurt containers with aluminum foil and push a wooden popsicle stick through the center. Freeze for at least 3 hours.
Fill a small bowl with hot water. Remove the foil and dip the popsicle far enough for the water to up all the way up the sides without spilling over into the cup. Hold it in the water and count to 5. Lift it out of the water and gently squeeze the cup with one hand while holding the stick with the other. The pop should slip right out. If it doesn’t, dip it again for another 5 seconds. Enjoy right away.
*Roast bananas by baking them in a 350°F oven for 15 minutes. Cool completely and mash before adding them to the yogurt.
