Greek yogurt popsicles is an easy, two-ingredient recipe that's perfect for a hot summer day. These sweet frozen treats can be customized with your favorite flavor of jam and take just 5 minutes of prep.
It's summer. It's hot out. There's nothing better than a sweet, frozen treat to combat the heat. These frozen Greek yogurt popsicles are the perfect solution.
The best part? All you need are two simple ingredients - Greek yogurt and your favorite flavor of jam (I used strawberry jam). These popsicles turn out lightly sweetened and creamy, with fruity flavor that kids and adults alike will enjoy.
Serve yogurt popsicles as an after school treat or for cooling off poolside this summer. If you love these popsicles, you may also enjoy my recipe for strawberry jam ice cream.
Ingredients and substitutions
- Vanilla Greek yogurt - Greek yogurt can be substituted with any type of vanilla yogurt (or other complementary flavor).
- Strawberry jam - Feel free to use your favorite flavor of jam - this is is what gives your popsicles their flavor. Homemade jam or store bought jam both work great. Peach jam or pineapple jam are great choices for summer. I used strawberry jam for the photos in this post.
To make your popsicles creamy, use a higher fat content yogurt. Low or no fat yogurt popsicles will still taste great, but have an icy texture.
If you think you'll be making popsicles regularly, I highly suggest getting a popsicle mold. Sweet Creations Popsicle Maker Set (Amazon) is the popsicle mold I used for this recipe.
There are many varieties out there, so I suggest finding one that will suit your needs best. This recipe will make six 3 ounce popsicles, which may vary based on your popsicle mold.

Popsicle mold alternatives
If you don't have a popsicle mold on hand, don't worry - there are some easy alternatives. Pour your popsicle mixture into small paper cups with popsicle sticks in the middle. Once frozen, tear the cups away and enjoy.
Or, pour into ice cube trays with toothpicks, creating a bite-sized frozen snack.
I recommend using containers that flex (like plastic) and are made for freezing. You can also use containers that can be torn off and discarded, like paper cups. Do not use glass or metal containers - the popsicles will not release easily.
Greek yogurt popsicles must be stored in the freezer until ready to serve. They'll take about 4 to 6 hours to freeze solid.
Homemade popsicles will keep for 1 month or more when stored in a freezer-safe container.
Greek Yogurt Popsicles
- 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup strawberry jam, or your favorite flavor
- In a large bowl, add yogurt and jam. Gently stir ingredients to partial combine and create a jam swirl throughout.
- Pour or spoon into popsicle molds, leaving ½" of space at the top for expansion when freezing. (or follow your specific popsicle mold directions)
- Freeze for 4 to 6 hours or overnight. Run popsicle mold under warm water to help release popsicles. Enjoy.
- Wrap extra popsicles in wax paper, then store in a freezer safe bag or container.
- Popsicles will keep for 1 month or more when stored in a tightly sealed, freezer safe container.
- For creamier popsicles, use a higher fat content yogurt. Low or no fat yogurt results in an icy popsicle.
- Strawberry jam can be substituted with your favorite flavor of jam.
- Vanilla yogurt can be substituted with other flavors to make your own popsicle flavor - try blueberry, peach, or mixed berry.
