These homemade Strawberry Popsicles are a staple in our house. They are sweet, a tiny bit tangy, nutritious, and a cinch to make. They are versatile too, which means you can change the recipe up all year long according to what you have on hand!

Strawberry Popsicles

Whenever the weather warms up, or if we just need a fun snack, we love to have homemade popsicles. These frozen yogurt pops taste so darn good, but they’re just made with super simple ingredients.

They’re creamy and bright in flavor and you can mix them up in about 5 minutes.

Making homemade popsicles to share with the kids is an easy way to offer nutritious foods in a fun format. I love to make my popsicles with Greek yogurt since it adds both protein and a super creamy texture. Paired with the fresh strawberries and lemon, the frozen yogurt is naturally sweet and indulgent tasting.

TIP: This mixture blends up to be pale pink, which is a fun color, and is rich in Vitamin C, protein, fiber, and probiotics.

Ingredients You Need

To make this recipe, you need the following ingredients:

  • Fresh or frozen strawberries
  • Honey (or maple syrup): You can add this to taste according to your preference and the sweetness of the berries.
  • Vanilla extract: This adds another flavor note.
  • Fresh lemon: This perks up all of the flavors, so a little goes a long way.
  • Plain whole milk Greek yogurt: This style of yogurt adds a lot of creaminess.

TIP: You can use frozen strawberries if that’s all you have, though you may need to stop and start the blender a few times to get it blending.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at how to make these simple homemade popsicles. Scroll down to the end of the post for the full recipe.

  1. Add the ingredients to a blender or food processor. (photo 1)

  3. Pour into small plastic cups or reusable freezer pop molds. (photo 3)
  4. Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Remove from the molds or cups and enjoy.

TIP: I try to make homemade popsicles the day before we plan to eat them so they’re firm and ready to eat, though the morning usually works too if you plan to eat them in the afternoon.

Best Molds for Homemade Freezer Pops

When I make these for a crowd (which I often do for parties!), I use small plastic bathroom cups. When I make them for my girls, I use our favorite Zoku Classic Pop Molds. They release super easily and seem to be very durable. We also have these mini ones which are a great size for baby popsicles and for younger toddlers.

Best Tips for Success

  • When you’re done blending the ingredients together, taste it for sweetness and if it doesn’t taste sweet enough, add a touch more honey or maple syrup. They will taste the same when frozen, so this is your best bet to ensure that they taste great.
  • Use whole milk yogurt if possible. This will enhance the creamy texture, offer the fats that your toddler’s brains need, and will just taste better.
  • Use strawberries that taste good when you try them fresh. This can impact how much sweetener (if any!) you need so taste them as you go.
  • Run the molds or cups under warm water if needed to help them release easily.
  • Serve them outside so any drips or mess is less of an issue.
  • To make these for a baby, omit the honey and either skip added sweetener or use maple syrup.
  • To make without a blender, dice the berries, stir everything together and add to popsicle molds. Freeze as directed.
