Am I guilty of buying popsicles from the grocery store from time to time? Yes, yes I am! With that being said, none of those plastic wrapped popsicles can hold a candle to these homemade icy treats. They’re rich with real blueberry flavor (not the artificial stuff) and creamy greek yogurt. And honestly, making homemade popsicles is just plain fun!

What really elevates these popsicles is the homemade quick blueberry jam. And when I say quick, I mean it! You just have to blend and strain the berries, then mix it with sugar over medium heat in a saucepan. Voila! You now have blueberry jam that’s perfect for freezing with your yogurt.

Any time I have to use molds in the kitchen, I have a good time. There’s something pretty satisfying about removing a perfectly frozen popsicle from its mold! These popsicles are also fun to serve at parties for everyone to cool off. Remember when I said this was a fun recipe? I meant it!

What You’ll Need:

  • Greek Yogurt – Plain greek yogurt is what you should use! Don’t buy any that have special flavors for this recipe.
  • Blueberries – You can use fresh or frozen blueberries.
  • Sugar – Plain white granulated sugar works best here.
  • Vanilla Extract – For the best flavor, use pure vanilla extract, not imitation.

How to Make Vanilla Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles

For more detailed instructions, scroll to the bottom of this post.

Mix. Mix together the yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. Set aside.

Make the jam. Blend the berries, then strain them to make a fine puree. Mix the puree with sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until combined. Stir and continue cooking until thick. Let cool.

Fill the popsicle molds. Use tablespoons to spoon and layer the yogurt and jam into the molds until you reach the top of the mold.

Create the galaxy effect. Place the popsicle sticks into the filled molds and move it up and down. Don’t over mix or you’ll lose the layers.

Freeze. Place the popsicles into the freezer for at least 8 hours.

Popsicles are stacked and placed next to flowers on a white countertop.

Common Questions:

Can I use another fruit? Absolutely! You can use strawberry, raspberry, blackberries, or even peach! In fact, mixing two fruits together would be delicious as well!

Can I use store-bought jam? Yes, I highly recommend Bonne Maman as their fruit spreads and jams are high-quality and you want the fruit flavor to come through in these popsicles!

How long will Vanilla Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles stay fresh? In a zip top bag in the freezer, these popsicles will stay fresh for about a week, maybe even a little longer!

Can I make Vanilla Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles vegan? You sure can! Just swap the plain greek yogurt for coconut yogurt, or your favorite dairy free yogurt.

Keep your freezer stocked all summer long!

Ingredients 

  • 3 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix the greek yogurt with ⅔ of the sugar and the vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Set aside.

For the homemade quick blueberry jam:

  • In a food processor blend the blueberries until you obtain a fine puree.
  • In a saucepan, pour the blueberry puree and ¼ of the sugar and mix until well combined.
  • On slow-medium heat, stir and cook until it thickens and changes color a bit.
  • Let cool before mixing it with the yogurt.

Once the blueberry jam has reached room temp, fill the popsicle molds as follows:

  • Start with either the yogurt mixture or the jam and pour a couple of tablespoons on each mold.
  • Continue with a couple of tablespoons of the other ingredient.
  • Keep building layers until you reach the top.
  • Create the galaxy effect using one of the popsicle sticks. Insert it in the filled molds and move it around up and down so the layers mix. Don’t overmix or you’ll lose the layers.
  • Once mixed, put the lid and the sticks and transfer them into the freezer for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • Once the popsicles are frozen, you can take them out of the mold and store them in ziplock bags. To easily take them out of the molds without sweating or breaking the sticks, just take out the mold from the freezer and let it sit for a couple of minutes, then squeeze from the bottom of the molds.

Recipe Notes

These popsicles can be stored in the freezer in ziplock bags for up to a week, probably more but I’ve never had the opportunity to test it for longer!
As mentioned above, you can use either fresh or frozen blueberries, the result will not change.
Try changing the fruit and use other fruits like strawberries or cherries, also they are very delicious with chocolate chips.
You can substitute the white sugar with the sweetener of your choice.
You can make them dairy-free by using coconut cream instead of greek yogurt.
