Healthy greek yogurt popsicle recipe. Easy-to-make and delicious fresh blackberry, fresh blueberry, and Greek yogurt popsicles.
Healthy Greek Yogurt Popsicles with Fresh Berries
I am a popsicle lover from way back. I remember walking during the summer months to a small local market when I was growing up and buying either a blueberry or cherry popsicle.
The store was about a mile away and I would eat that tasty sugar water on the way home and was usually a sticky mess once I got to the front porch but, oh, those are such fond memories.
Nowadays I don’t buy popsicles for my family. I’m not sure why but it’s not something we have in our freezer BUT since I’ve realized just how easy it is to make these delicious creamy yogurt popsicles I may be going on a summer binge of sorts.
Everyone in my house has become more diligent about the food we eat which can make it a bit more challenging to find and make healthier alternatives but this recipe is a family favorite so it’s a win-win!
You don’t need anything fancy and can easily find almost every ingredient in any market.
Homemade Berry Popsicles
These can be customized with different berries and different flavors of Greek yogurt. The combination possibilities are endless.
When I make these again, I’m going to switch out the berries and make strawberry Greek yogurt popsicles. I can’t wait to try those and I’ll add the details and a picture when I do.
The only ingredient that “may” be a bit hard to find is the fresh rosemary but that can be omitted so no worries there. I just wanted something a little fancy schmancy and unique and that’s why I added it to this recipe.
Usually, I grow some every summer and that’s why I had access to it but I’ve also seen small rosemary plants at Walmart in the produce section for under $3.00 so that is another option.
How To Make Greek Yogurt Popsicles
Healthy Greek Yogurt Popsicles with Fresh Blackberries and Blueberries
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt Vanilla or any other flavor that will complement the blueberries and blackberries
- 1 cup water
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Rosemary sprig
- Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan and heat to boiling using a wooden spoon to dissolve the sugar thoroughly. Reduce heat, add the rosemary sprig, and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to thoroughly cool.
- Place 1/4 cup of water in a saucepan and add berries. Cook over medium heat crushing the berries gently and allowing the juice to 'cook out'. Do NOT allow this to come to a boil.
- Place the above in a sieve over a bowl and PUSH the berry juice through the sieve; throw away the peels/pulp.
- Add the rosemary water a tablespoon at a time to the berry juice to your desired level of sweetness. I used 2 tablespoons of the rosemary water.
- Fill 4 popsicle molds to the halfway point with the juice mixture and freeze until slushy but not fully frozen ~ 2 to 3 hours.
- Mix the yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract together.
- Add this mixture to the popsicle molds to the top/add sticks and freeze until firm.

I used these inexpensive popsicle molds.
Next time, I’ll be upgrading these to something a bit “fancier” merely for the aesthetics. 😉
