Simple and wholesome popsicles. My mom used to help us make these when we were kids and I still enjoy them years later. Use honey as an alternate sweetener, and blend the fruit to be either chunky or smooth.

I also make this every summer for my boys. Just as my Grandma did for us kids. This also works with frozen berries. Depending on how sweet your berries and if you use NF plain yogurt, you may not need the extra sugar at all. NOTE: If you don't keep paper cups on hand all the time, you can save your Snack Pack cups, fruit cups or yogurt cups from previous meals and re-use them for the cups for your pops. Better for the environment and you can use them again and again. Also, if you've got issues with finding a flat surface in your freezer to keep these from tipping and spilling, place them on a baking sheet or flat plate before sticking them in the freezer.

The original recipe made way too much for the 8 popsicle forms I have. Next time I'll reduce it by half if not more. I used the prescribed 1/4 c. sugar and I found it much too sweet. (I had used vanilla yogurt as the base.) Next time I'll omit nearly all sugar and maybe add a small amount of cinnamon or alcohol-free vanilla instead. I look forward to trying smoothie popsicles with peaches this summer. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Perfect just what I was looking for! I would probably omit the sugar if your strawberries are really sweet--mine were! Otherwise I bet Splenda might do the trick with less calories. Read More

Excellent! My 3 children love this recipe. What a great way to get fruit and yogurt into picky eaters! We make it with whatever fruit/berries we have on hand - often just strawberries or strawberries and bananas. I use a little honey to sweeten the mix instead of white sugar. The recipe makes more than our popcicle mold will hold and the kids love to drink the extra as a smoothie! Read More

Fairly simple to make. Didn't have any "formed" popsicle holders so I used small dixie cups and wooden popsicle sticks. Kids LOVED them! I made strawberry and raspberry. Read More

I love to serve my kids healthy pops. They think it's a treat I'm happy they're eating fruit and yogurt. I leave the sugar out and use whatever fruit we're in the mood for. The kids favorite is MANGO! Read More
