Yogurt-Berry Pops

A perfect summer treat, with just the right combination of tart, sweet and creamy.

Serves: About 8, depending on the size of your popsicle molds

Have you succumbed to the call of the popsicle mold?  They are all over the place, and I resisted them for a while.  But then I got them as a gift, and I am now embracing the world of frozen pops.  These yogurt berry pops were my first foray.  I made a mashed up speed jam with a bunch of different berries, and sweetened some yogurt with honey.  Then I layered the two mixtures into the molds, and really that was that.  The next time I stuck a fork into the mixture and swirled them them a bit, so they looked more dappled and the flavors were more intermingled.  But you know, there’s a learning curve on everything.  And these were all pretty fine.


  • 2 cups berries of your choice (such as whole raspberries, blackberries or blueberries or strawberries, or a combination, roughly chopped), rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey

1. For the berry “jam’: Put the berries in a small heavy saucepan. Sprinkle the sugar over them and mash together with a fork until the berries are coarsely mashed and juicy. Heat the berry-sugar mixture over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 15 minutes.

2. To make the popsicles: Stir the yogurt, milk and honey together until blended. Spoon enough of the yogurt into the molds to fill about one-fifth. Add a layer of berries, then yogurt, then berries, then yogurt up to the fill line. Use a butter knife to swirl the yogurt and berries together but don’t over-swirl. Put the popsicle handles into the mold and freeze until solid. This can take from 4 to 6 hours, depending the type of mold you use.

3. Remove and enjoy.

Note: If you have a GE Advantium oven you can make the jam in that, instead of the stovetop. Place the ovenproof bowl in place in the Advantium on the metal tray (see Note). Set the controls to Custom Speed Cook with upper power set to medium-low and lower power set to low. Cook for 7 ½ minutes. Remove and stir the berries. Cook once more at the same settings and time. Cool completely, then chill.
