Blueberry and Yogurt Popsicles
It’s been hot around here lately and my kids have been wanting frozen treats so I decided to make some healthier ones for them. I had them pick out what flavor yogurt they wanted – my daughter chose vanilla and my son chose lemon. I made a quick blueberry sauce then strained it so it was just liquid then swirled it together with the different yogurts. I put them in popsicle molds and popped them in the freezer for 24 hours. They were super quick, easy, and much healthier than store-bought popsicles. My kids LOVED them and they disappeared quickly. I’ll be making these again soon.
How to Make Blueberry and Yogurt Popsicles
Pour the yogurt into a bowl – if you are using different flavored yogurts then put them each into their own bowls.
Heat the water, sugar, blueberries, and lemon zest in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir the berries often, mashing them, for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before pouring through a strainer. Let the blueberry sauce cool completely.
Pour a bit of the blueberry sauce, to taste, into the bowl(s) of yogurt(s). Gently stir just a little bit to swirl blueberry sauce with yogurt – don’t mix thoroughly. Pour into each popsicle mold.
Place into the freezer for 24 hours. Enjoy.

What lovely popsicles Pam! I love them!
Yours kids are big and cute!
Your children are adorable, and it looks like they really enjoyed these yummy Popsicles!
Simple and delicious…these are the best summer cooler!
Your kids are darling, those look very refreshing especially on an extremely humid day like today!
These look like a delicious treat!
These look delicious! Having just had a bout of bronchitis, I have been getting into making homemade Popsicles again ( I used to make them all the time when my son was little). They feel so good on my throat, that was the initial reason I started making them again. And then I realized how much I was enjoying them for a light treat, husband too. I will be making these next so thanks for the wonderful recipe.
I bet your children loved them. They look so yummy.
A yummy and healthy sweet treat!
You take such good care of your kids
Your son’s hair is sunbleached! He looks so cute! I’m sad that they’ve gotten so big so fast. (I’m sad this weekend, having taken Ryan to college, so it’s rubbing off on my perception of your kids, no doubt). Those popsicles look wonderful, and certainly were being enjoyed.
wow! i’d love to taste it! Btw. Your blog is awesome! I’ll visit u very often!
We all need new ideas for healthier snacks, so thanks for sharing this one! There have been a lot of great popsicle recipes popping up lately. The swirl variety always look so pretty.
Love that these are healthy AND still feel like you’re indulging in a sweet treat! Best of both worlds.
