They are my favorite treat this summer.

With a hot summer sun bearing down in my neck of the woods, I’ve been thrilled to have these ready in the freezer. No guilt, just delicious summery flavor in a wholesome treat.

When blueberries are at peak season, I love to whip up my favorite muffins or the easiest Blueberry Pie you can make.

But these Blueberry Popsicles have a place of their own on our favorites list.

They’re creamy and delicious, easy to make ahead, and healthy too. They’re absolutely a must this summer!

Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles Notes:

Keep reading for ingredients and measurements in the recipe card below.

Sweetness: We have added a bit of sugar, along with a drizzle of honey to these Blueberry Popsicles which enhances the fresh flavor of the berries.

Flavor: Lightly cooking the berries into a puree before mixing with the yogurt boosts that delicious flavor you expect in a blueberry popsicle.

Yogurt: We suggest using a full-fat Greek yogurt in these popsicles for the best texture and flavor. Full-fat yogurts lend a beautiful creamy texture to the popsicle. Light or skim yogurts can be more tart and icy in texture. 

Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles Ingredients

  • Fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Granulated sugar
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Honey
  • Milk

How to Make Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles

Details on how to make these Blueberry Popsicles are in the recipe card below, but here is a summary:

Step 1: Make a Blueberry Puree

Begin by making a blueberry puree. In a saucepan, bring blueberries, water, and sugar to a simmer. Continue to cook until the blueberries release their juices and then mash with a fork. Let cool.

If you want the popsicles smooth with no chunks of berries, puree the mixture in a blender and strain to remove any remaining skins. I usually skip this step as I prefer blueberry popsicles with strains of berries in them.

Step 2: Yogurt

Whisk yogurt, honey, lemon juice, and milk together. Then fold the cooled blueberry mixture into the yogurt. If you like a marbled popsicle, stir only a couple of times. 

Step 3: Freeze

Pour the blueberry yogurt mixture into six 3-ounce popsicle molds. Place the sticks into the molds, cover, and freeze for at least 4 hours to overnight.

Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles: Healthy Summer Treats

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes

These Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles are a refreshing and healthy summer-perfect snack or treat on a warm day. These creamy, delicious popsicles are super easy to make ahead and healthy at under 100 calories each. 

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Heat the blueberries, water, and granulated sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the blueberries release their juices; 4 to 5 minutes. Mash the blueberries with a fork and let cool (see notes).
  2. Whisk the yogurt, honey, lemon juice, and milk together.
  3. Fold the cooled blueberry mixture into the yogurt. For a marbled effect, stir only a couple of times so there are streaks of color. For a solid color until blended.
  4. Pour the mixture into six 3-ounce popsicle molds. Place the sticks into the molds, cover and freeze for at least 4 hours to overnight. To unmold, run it under warm water before pulling the popsicles from their molds.

Notes

Blueberry Puree

  • If you want a smooth popsicle with no chunks of berries, puree the blueberry mixture and then strain with a fine-mesh strainer. Add the blueberry mixture to the yogurt and proceed with the recipe.

Make-Ahead and Storage

  • The blueberry purée can be made ahead up to about 5 days. Store in an air-tight container.
  • Unmold and wrap each popsicle tightly with plastic wrap to freeze for up to 1 month.

Ingredient Notes

  • I prefer the texture and flavor with a full-fat Greek yogurt. Low fat yogurts can produce more tart flavors in popsicles.
