How to customize
Switch up the fruit
If you're not a fan of blackberries or just have a craving for a specific fruit, any will work in these popsicles. Some options I think would be amazing are strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and even peach!
Pick your favorite yogurt
Although this recipe works best with a yogurt that has a bit of fat in it (at least 2%) you can use any kind you wish. We flavor the yogurt ourselves in this recipe with vanilla but you can also use a flavored yogurt too (just skip the vanilla).
Sweeten it to your liking
You can sweeten these greek yogurt popsicles to your sweetness level. Just add another tablespoon of maple syrup into your mixture, test it to make sure it's sweet enough for you, and add more if needed until you're satisfied.
The 5 ingredients you need to make fruity greek yogurt popsicles
- Greek yogurt (at least 2%)
- Almond milk
- Fresh blackberries
- Maple syrup
What if I Don't Have Popsicle Molds?
No popsicle molds, no problemo! These popsicles can also be made using a plastic solo cup. Simply pour the yogurt mixture into the plastic cups (either half way up for a full-size solo cup or ¾ of the way up for mini solo cups). Wrap tinfoil or cling wrap around the top of the cup and cut a slit in the middle to place your popsicle stick. Freeze and then easily pull to remove or cup open the plastic around the popsicle.
I used these popsicle molds and love them! They have an easy snap on lid to keep the stick in place and this package also comes with a big bag of popsicle sticks too!
Let's Make Blackberry Popsicles
Homemade popsicles are quite easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze! Here is how we make them:
- First, heat the freshly washed blackberries in a skillet over medium-low heat with a tablespoon of water. The heat will extract some of the juices from the berries and leave you with soft, juicy blackberries. Remove from heat and place in the fridge to cool while you prepare the yogurt.
- Mix together all ingredients except the berries in a large mixing bowl. Test the yogurt to make sure it is up to your sweetness level. If you want it a little more sweet, add a tablespoon more of maple syrup and test it again.
- Stir in the blackberries. Spoon the mixture into popsicle molds, place the lid on top, and place a popsicle stick in the middle. Freeze in the freezer for at least 4 hours until solid and enjoy!
