Do you see the seaside, when you look on the ice pop? I think this recipe for popsicles is perfect for summer party! DIY popsicles can be a fun pastime for your family.

I love the food with the story, so it may take more time to wait for each layer to freeze and make a hole in the middle. But the end result looks fun and beautiful.

Grabbing one of the three homemade yogurt popsicles

If you love homemade ice cream, you need to try these yogurt popsicles. I can’t imagine a better healthy snack than frozen yogurt with berries on a hot day!

I used a little bit of sugar, because without it these frozen treat would be bland. But you can totally make sugar free popsicles, sweetening it with a little bit of stevia or honey. If you’re not sure you can buy healthy popsicles in your local store, better make your own, with real fruit and less sugar!

I also added vanilla extract, because it goes so well with other ingredients! It’s like homemade vanilla ice cream on a a stick, made with plain Greek yogurt.

We love to make healthy popsicles like this vegan cherry popsicle! I would stack my freezer with a lot of fruit pops to survive on a hot day!

Layers of homemade yogurt popsicles – how to make popsicles

Here is a list of what you will need:

  • 4 popsicle molds with sticks
  • metal stick
  • few bowls to mix the ingredients
  • blender or food processor to blend raspberries

The layers are fun to make! To make these homemade yogurt popsicles, you need to freeze every layer for at least 1 hour, except the last yellow one. Here are detailed process shots.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process shots 1-4

Start making the first “sunset” layer by blending raspberries with yogurt. Fill the pop molds with raspberry puree.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process 5-6

Freeze the raspberry layer for at least 1 hour until set.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process 7-11

Mix Greek yogurt with blue coloring, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Add a thin blue yogurt layer on top of the frozen raspberry layer.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process 12-16

When it’s set, spread a thin white layer of yogurt and freeze for half an hour. Repeat with more blue and white layers. Freeze each layer for half an hour.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process 17-20

You will need to end with 3 blue and 3 white frozen layers (see picture 17-18).

Then, using the metal stick, make a hole. Otherwise you can’t create so many layers on the popsicle stick! This part is tricky, so you need to find way to make a hole.  I used my metal spoon, heated in the warm water.

If you want to make a popsicles with many layers, then you need to make a hole after most of them are frozen. I used metal spoon. You can find any metal stick in your kitchen or household.

The trick is to let the popsicles thaw for 10 minutes, then heat the metal spoon or whatever you are using in a hot water for few seconds.Using the stick, gently start spinning in the center until you have a hole, where you can insert your popsicle stick.

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process 21-24To make yellow layer, mix a cup of Greek yogurt with desiccated coconut. Then add yellow food coloring. Mix everything until you are happy with the color!

Homemade Yogurt Popsicles process 25-27

Fill the popsicle mold till the top with last layer of yellow coconut yogurt, letting it also flow in the hole, you’ve made. Insert popsicle sticks and leave to set overnight or for 4 hours.

You can create your own popsicle layers, using this method. You can also use vegan yogurt instead Greek yogurt and make a vegan popsicle!

How to unmold popsicles

Take out popsicles 15 minutes before serving. I recommend serving homemade yogurt popsicles on a plate with ice, so they won’t melt so quickly on a hot day.

Hold popsicle mold in one hand (or ask your family member) and try to pull it out with the stick. If it doesn’t go out, wait a little bit more, then try again.

You can also try to dip the molds in warm (but not hot!) water for few seconds and then try to pull the popsicles out.
