I absolutely love being able to give my kids treats. Especially when I make them from home. We don’t always eat the best at our house, but I do try to limit the amount of sugar I give them.

Ingredients For Strawberry Banana Yogurt Popsicles

Strawberries – I use fresh strawberries to ensure a burst of natural flavor and vibrant color, while also providing essential nutrients and antioxidants. Try to plan to make them when strawberries are in season. They’re at their juicy sweetest when they’re a dark color. Blueberries can be used instead and they make a really fun blue color popsicle.

Banana – for natural sweetness and a creamy texture. The more ripe they are the sweeter they are!

Vanilla yogurt – you could also use plain Greek yogurt with a dash of vanilla essence for flavor to reduce the amount of sugar you’re getting. Use almond milk to make this dairy free and vegan.

Cornstarch – this helps with the creamy texture and also prevents the popsicles from turning icy

Honey – For sweetness, but you don’t need too much because of the sweet fruits. Use maple syrup if you want a vegan option

Tips For Homemade Popsicles

How do you make these popsicles creamy?

For cream-based pops your base options are heavy cream, yogurt, almond milk, or coconut milk. 

How do I not make a mess when I pour into the molds?

Pour into mold using a cup with a spout (such as a glass liquid measuring cup)

How do you take these out of the molds?

To unmold, run under warm water for 2-3 mins just to loosen the pops and push up from the bottom.

How do I make vegan popsicles?

Use maple syrup instead of honey and coconut milk or almond milk in place of yogurt. Add the banana, cornstarch and any type of berries.

How Do You Store Popsicles?

Wrap individually in wax paper and then place into Ziploc freezer bags for up to 3 months.
