Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

My son is an active 4-H member and takes a cooking project each year.  This year he completed “Fast Break for Breakfast” and made this recipe to share with his completed book for project judging.  He has learned that yogurt has protein and calcium while the fruit have other vitamins and minerals that are important for our bodies.  Fruit and Honey Frozen Yogurt Popsicles are a healthy breakfast or snack that is fun and delicious!

I like that he takes cooking projects in 4-H because there are several activities around eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle.  The main idea in this year’s project is the importance of eating a breakfast that is nutrient-dense.  These are principles that I believe need to be reinforced multiple times throughout childhood, so I do all that I can to support his work.

As we brainstormed unique ideas for breakfast food he kept coming back to this popsicle recipe that my mom had torn out a newspaper years ago.  We tested it in ice cube trays and popsicle holders.  Our two year old prefers the ice cube tray sized pieces and she still has big smiles while eating “popsicles”.  Our eleven year old prefers holding a popsicle stick, but different types can be easier than others to remove from the mold.  Moral of the story is don’t test a new popsicle holder for the first time at judging because it may not release to set on the judge’s plate at the right moment.

Can You Freeze Greek Yogurt and Eat it Like Ice Cream?

We’ve found that adding milk, honey, and small pieces of fresh fruit tastes better and is easier to eat than freezing straight Greek Yogurt.

Be aware that chunks of fruit in the popsicle take longer to thaw than frozen yogurt.  Some of us enjoy having a little more crunch while the toddler might rather have the mixture run through the blender and pureed before freezing.

How to Make Fresh Fruit Frozen Yogurt

  1. Stir together yogurt, milk, honey and vanilla extract.
  2. Taste the mixture and add a little more honey if needed.
  3. Divide half the fruit among 8 to 10 1/2 cup popsicle holders.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of yogurt mixture to each popsicle, then add remaining fruit.
  5. Freeze the popsicles for several hours, until completely solid.

Tips for Making Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

  • Dense fruit like strawberries takes longer to unthaw than less dense fruit like blueberries or the yogurt
  • Chop dense fruit finely to make the yogurt popsicles as easy to eat as possible
  • The mixture can be frozen in ice cube trays, small paper cups or popsicle holders
  • Some of us enjoy eating as a popsicle and some of our family prefer a slushie like consistency when eating
  • Use any combination of fruit that you enjoy
  • I like using vanilla Greek yogurt, but my son prefers plain regular yogurt
