Greek Yogurt Popsicles


Well, here we are mid-way through summer and the Shull kiddos are popsicle obsessed.  I bought some Norpro Ice Pop Molds off of Amazon earlier in the summer and we’ve been whipping up fun frozen treats almost daily.  Last year, I bought a Zoku Quick Pop Maker but I really didn’t have a great experience with them (the pops always got stuck and the maker was difficult to clean), so this year, I bought some less expensive, dishwasher approved molds and our life has been made easy.

So…I’m going to share a few of our favorite popsicle recipes this summer…and kicking things off…our Greek Yogurt ones.  I love this because my kiddos aren’t just getting a fun frozen treat, but they’re getting a little protein too.  These are creamy and flavorful and I’m in love with them as well.  Our two favorite versions have been Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip (left) and Toasted Coconut Cream (right).

Grab some molds, Greek Yogurt, your favorite add-ins and make some popsicles too!  You can mix and match this idea like crazy!

Happy summer!

To make the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Popsicles
This recipe makes 10 popsicles.
Shopping List
3 (5 oz) containers of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt (I used Oikos single serve)
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
10 wooden popsicle sticks
Popsicle molds should be at room temperature before assembling.  Spray down inside each mold with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt and peanut butter with a spoon.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Pour mixture into the molds leaving an inch on top.
Pop molds into freezer and freeze for one hour.  After one hour, place the wooden sticks inside each mold.  Continue to freeze at least 7 hours before removing.
When you’re ready to serve, run your sink until the water is very hot.  Holding the mold, place the bottom portion under your hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds.  After that, you should be able to grab the sticks and easily remove each popsicle.  If they’re not coming out easily, run the bottom of the mold under hot water a few seconds more.
Remove, serve and enjoy.
To make the Toasted Coconut Cream Popsicles
This recipe makes 10 popsicles.
Shopping List
3 (5 oz) containers of coconut flavored Greek yogurt (I used Oikos single serve)**
2 cups of toasted coconut (see below)
10 wooden popsicle sticks
Popsicle molds should be at room temperature before assembling.  Spray down inside each mold with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt and 1 1/2 cups of your toasted coconut with a spoon.    Pour mixture into the molds leaving an inch on top.  Lightly add the rest of the toasted coconut to the tops of each mold (so when you invert them, the toasted coconut will be at the bottom as pictured).
Pop molds into freezer and freeze for one hour.  After one hour, place the wooden sticks inside each mold.  Continue to freeze at least 7 hours before removing.
When you’re ready to serve, run your sink until the water is very hot.  Holding the mold, place the bottom portion under your hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds.  After that, you should be able to grab the sticks and easily remove each popsicle.  If they’re not coming out easily, run the bottom of the mold under hot water a few seconds more.
Remove, serve and enjoy.
**If you can’t find coconut flavored Greek yogurt, you can use vanilla Greek yogurt and then add in 1 1/2 teaspoons of coconut extract to your mixing bowl when you’re combining with the toasted coconut.  This is what I did!

And to get toasted coconut, you add sweetened flaked coconut to a clean, dry skillet and toast up for about a minute or two over medium-high heat.  Remove from skillet and cool just a minute or two.

    In the Oikos single serve containers, there is also a vanilla coconut flavor. We shop at the exact same grocery store you do, so you should be able to find it! These look so yummy and are definitely making me consider buying a popsicle mold!
