I’m sorry friends, I’ve been holding out on you. I’ve been making these Greek yogurt, honey and fruit popsicles for two years. TWO YEARS! And yet, I’ve never shared the recipe.
Maybe it’s because I never get a seem to get a chance to photograph them before they get gobbled up, or maybe it’s because I keep improving the recipe a little each time. But for some reason, they have always been one of my best kept secrets.
This morning, I decided it was time to share. So I made a batch of these, knowing that they would be safe from being eaten up, at least until the end of the day, and experimented with a few different versions.
Finally, I got it down. What I consider to be the best version of my red white and blue Greek yogurt popsicles, and actually was able to take photos of them. So now I’m ready to share.
Don’t be intimidated by these popsicles. I know these look super fancy, but they only have 6 ingredients, and only require a few active steps. Besides the time required for freezing, I only spent about 15 minutes actively putting these together.
Red White & Blue Greek Yogurt & Fruit Popsicles
- First, mix together Greek yogurt and honey.
- Blend strawberries, cherries, and 1/2 cup of yogurt/honey mixture until smooth.
- Pour blended mixture into popsicle molds, filling up about 1/3rd of the mold.
- Set aside in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
- While red layer is freezing, set aside 1/2 cup of yogurt/honey for the blue layer.
- Mix remaining yogurt/honey (approx 2 cups) with 1 cup of milk.
- After red layer has partially frozen, add white layer, filling up the popsicle molds to 2/3rds full.
- Return to freezer.
- Once white layer has frozen partially, about another 30 minutes/45 minutes, insert popsicle sticks.
- Blend blueberries with remaining 1/2 cup of yogurt/honey until smooth.
- Once white layer is partially frozen (about the same time as I typically put the popsicle sticks in), add blue layer on top, filling popsicle molds to the top.
- Freeze popsicles for approximately 3 additional hours or overnight.
