If there’s one thing I can be honest with you about, it’s that I’ve been devouring these strawberry banana yogurt popsicles since summer began. 

No kidding, I literally make them every single week because my husband and I go through them like they’re our toilet paper.

They are sooo good! And the best part? They’re low in refined sugar and packed with protein. What more can I say? You’ve just got to try them for yourself.

And since I’m talking about trying them out, here are the things you’ll need to make this deliciousness:

Ingredients for strawberry banana yogurt popsicles

Ingredients for Strawberry Banana Yogurt Popsicles

Strawberries: I HIGHLY recommend using fresh strawberries over frozen. I’ve tried this with frozen strawberries, and they just don’t have the same sweetness and strawberry-ness that fresh ones do. It’s even worse if your fruits get freezer burn. Yuck!

Banana: I absolutely love the creaminess that the banana adds to these popsicles. I’ve tried making them without the banana before, and they just don’t have that luscious, creamy texture we all crave in a popsicle.

Trust me on this one—bananas are the secret ingredient that makes these popsicles shine!

Greek Yogurt: For this strawberry banana yogurt popsicles, I chose to use zero sugar, non-fat plain greek yogurt.

I’m very conscious of blood sugar and cholesterol levels in my home, so I often choose items with lower levels of saturated fats and sugar.

However, feel free to use your favorite yogurt. If you decide to use yogurt that contains sugar, I recommend decreasing the amount of monk fruit sweetener.

Milk: Milk helps with blending and adds an extra layer of creaminess to these popsicles. You can use almond milk, cashew milk, or 2% milk, depending on your preference. I’ve tried various types of milk in this recipe, and they all work really well. If milk isn’t your thing, feel free to use good ole water instead.

Monk fruit: I prefer monk fruit as my sweetener of choice because it is a natural sugar and is super low in calories. I suggest using real, 100% monk fruit, not the blended versions you often find in grocery stores.

Some of those contain maltodextrin or erythritol, so try to avoid those additives.

If you’re looking for another natural sweetener alternative, honey is a great option.

How to make strawberry banana yoghurt popsicles

To make these popsicles you will need a sturdy popsicle mold. I purchased these silicone popsicle molds from amazon, and so far it has not failed me. 

Follow these steps to ensure you get great tasting strawberry banana yogurt popsicles

Step 1: Dice the strawberries and bananas

Start by cutting the strawberries into small, bite-sized pieces. This will ensure they blend well and provide a consistent texture throughout your popsicles. In addition, peel and slice the bananas into thin rounds. Bananas add a creamy texture and natural sweetness to the popsicles.

Step 2: Add the ingredients to a blender

Step 3: Blend until smooth

Blend the mixture until it reaches a smooth consistency. Make sure all the ingredients are well combined. 

Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more monk fruit sweetener or honey. Blend again briefly to incorporate any additional sweetener.

Step 4: Fill the popsicle molds and insert sticks

Pouring mixture into popsicle mold

Carefully pour the blended mixture into your popsicle molds, leaving a small space at the top to allow the mixture to expand as it freezes. 

Insert the popsicle sticks into the molds and place them in the freezer. Allow the popsicles to freeze for at least 4-6 hours or until completely solid.

Step 5: Enjoy your strawberry banana yogurt popsicles

Once frozen, remove the popsicles from the molds and enjoy your delicious, homemade strawberry banana yogurt popsicles!

Popsicle Variations to try 

If you really enjoyed these strawberry banana yogurt popsicles, I recommend experimenting with other delicious fruit combinations.

Consider adding berries like blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries for a berry flavor. 

Also, tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, or kiwi can provide a refreshing twist. However, I recommend using full fat yogurt if you decide to go this route. 

For a chocolate-y popsicle, try adding cocoa powder to your banana mixture. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different fruits to create your unique popsicle flavors. 

Enjoy the creative process and let me know if you give this recipe a try!
