How Do You Make Blackberry Yogurt Popsicles Recipe?
They are relatively simple to make with only 3 ingredients. The hardest part comes after—trying not to eat them all!
Ingredients You Will Need:
Vanilla Greek Yogurt - You can swap out any flavor of Greek yogurt that you prefer, but vanilla compliments the blackberries very well.
Frozen Blackberries - Or if you want to make a day of it, take the kid's blackberry picking and bring home the fresh berries for this delicious summertime snack!
• In a blender, add the blackberries and 2 cups of the Greek yogurt. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds if using a high speed blender. Set aside.
• In a medium-size bowl, whisk lemon juice and 1 ½ cups of the Greek yogurt.
• Layer the popsicles as follows: To the molds add 2 tablespoons blackberry mixture, 1 tablespoon lemon juice mixture, repeat.
• Gently tap the molds to remove any air bubbles, then insert the popsicle sticks and the top cover of the mold.
• Freeze for at least 5 hours, or overnight is better.
• To remove the frozen popsicles from the molds, run the molds through warm water for about 10 seconds or allow it to sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes before removing from the mold.
How Do You Make Popsicles Creamy, Not Icy?
- These homemade popsicles are naturally creamier than a traditional ice pop because we use creamy yogurt instead of water. The yogurt adds the perfect amount of creaminess everyone will love.
- If you want to achieve a creamy dairy-free popsicle, try these coconut milk mango popsicles! They are the perfect delicious summertime treat. I like to have both on hand to cater to guests with varying preferences.
Tips and Variations
• If you want to switch up the yogurt mixture, you can swap out the vanilla yogurt for a flavor of your choosing. You can even use plain Greek yogurt with raw honey or another natural sweetener.
• If you're feeling more creative, you can swap out the blackberries for any berry or fruit you have on hand. Blueberry popsicles are another delicious healthy dessert.
What to Serve with Blackberry Popsicles
• Honestly, you don't need an excuse to enjoy these healthy popsicles. You can even serve these alongside a few other delicious homemade popsicles to give your guests or kiddos a few choices.
• Try our Creamy Mango Popsicles! You can enjoy them in the middle of the day, after dinner, or right before bed.
• Fruit pops are great healthy desserts to serve during family gatherings or parties to combat the summer heat!
How to Store Blackberry Yogurt Popsicles
- You can store your creamy fruit pops in the ice pop molds for six weeks, although I doubt they will last that long! For extra protection, you can place the mold inside a larger airtight Tupperware container.
- Once you start making these blackberry popsicles, you will never go back to store-bought popsicles or ice cream. You truly can't beat the freshness and flavor of a homemade blackberry popsicle or cool fruity popsicle of your choosing.

How Do You Keep Popsicles Once Out of the Mold?
- Once you remove the popsicles from the mold, you can store them in an airtight Tupperware in your freezer. Lay them flat on top of wax paper, and separate each layer of ice pops with a sheet of parchment paper to ensure they don't stick together.
- This method is great if you want to keep an assortment of popsicle flavors and free up your ice pop molds to make more.
