Healthy Summer Snacks
I don't know about you, but I am always looking for healthy snacks. In the summer, it's a bonus if those snacks are frozen! Even more of a bonus if they contain fruit, yogurt and are healthy!
I came home from the store with two impulse buys – a big container of organic strawberries and a fresh pineapple. Normally not an impulse buyer, I couldn’t resist though. After putting the groceries away, I found these popsicles on Fine Cooking. As luck would have it, I also had a container of Greek yogurt in the fridge, so I was good to go! You can choose your favorite popsicle mold: BPA Free Popsicle Molds or these Star Pop Style.
Strawberry Pineapple Frozen Yogurt Popsicles
These were so easy and so good. The only thing I did different was the recipe was on the pineapple portion. Instead of dicing it, I pureed it. I was afraid that it might be more crumbly at the tip. So mine ended up more separated that theirs did. While, the pineapple was nice, the strawberry yogurt part stole the show. It was amazingly creamy – perhaps because of the Greek yogurt? Even Mr. Sidewalk Shoes commented that it was the best frozen yogurt pops that I’ve ever made. Next time I’ll blend the pineapple with the strawberry – or omit it altogether and just make the strawberry part.
Strawberry-Pineapple Yogurt Ice Pops
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- Pinch kosher salt
- 2-½ cups strawberries hulled
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 cup pineapple small diced
- Combine the sugar, salt, and ½ cup water in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and make sure the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and let the syrup cool completely. Transfer the syrup to a 1-quart liquid measuring cup.
- Puree the strawberries in batches in a blender. Measure out 1 cup of puree (save any extra for another use) and combine it with the syrup. Stir in the yogurt until well-combined.
- Distribute the pineapple among ten ⅓-cup pop molds. Add the fruit mixture to each mold, leaving about ¼ inch at the top to allow for expansion. Stir gently with a Popsicle stick to distribute the pineapple. Freeze until partially frozen, about 1 hour. Insert sticks and freeze again until the pops are fully set, 4 to 6 hours more. (I did mine all in one step).
- To unmold, dip the mold in a deep pan of hot water until the pops pull out easily, 30 to 40 seconds, or let sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes.

Hello flashback! 😉 This strawberry-pineapple combo sounds as good today as it did two years ago. Heck, maybe even better.

Yay! Yum! Inthink I'd love the split flavor...it's definitely a gorgeous combo! I wonder how it would be if you mixed the pineapple layer w/yogurt, too? I bet awesome! So happy you brought these over to share...looking forward to more of your pops! 🙂
I think the color variation makes them look really interesting! Glad Mr. SS enjoyed them, too!
I have everything on hand except the popsicle molds. I was so glad to get rid of those after my kids grew up! I'll use cups, thank you. Won't be pleasing to the eye, but the stomach will say, "Who cares?"
Gee, I have everything on hand except the popsicle molds. I was so glad to get rid of those. I'll use cups. Won't be pretty, but who'll know?
Jacqueline Meldrum says
Wonderful! I am craving one of these in the heat of Cyprus, but I bet when I get back to a cooler & wet Scotland, I won't be quite as excited. I am going to pin these for warmer days.
mmmmm! colorful sweetness!
Yum! Those look delicious and refreshing!
You know who ELSE has greek yogurt in the fridge?! THIS GIRL. Time to buy a popsicle maker!
I should have made my Summer of Smoothie series interactive! Didn't occur to me. BAH. So...I've never made popsicles, but I have a Pinterest Popsicle board. Which these will be added to. I need to get on that. Seeing as how it's 108 degrees here today. 108.
