Summer demands cool, delicious treats to accompany the hot, carefree days. These strawberry yogurt popsicles have creamy layers of honey-sweetened yogurt and strawberry jam, frozen together to make a divine, healthy, refreshing summer bite.
Summer is in full swing, and that means there are always rotations of popsicles going through our kitchen. I love making popsicles because they make such a fun and healthy treat for the kids to help beat the summer heat. There will actually be a few different popsicle recipes coming in the next few weeks here on the blog, so make sure to come back to see my favorite combinations.
This particular recipe utilizes homemade yogurt, combined with local honey and rich vanilla. The creamy yogurt is layered with homemade strawberry jam – made from strawberries we picked at the peak of ripeness a few months ago during strawberry season.
Healthy fruit-and-yogurt bars and popsicles are so nostalgic for me, bringing back memories of my childhood and the gloriously vintage popsicle molds in the freezer. How fun to have these memories for my own children!
I also love that just about every single ingredient in this recipe was either grown on our farm or purchased from other local farms. Farm to table at its very finest.
Now, if you don’t have all of this stuff on your own homestead or even locally, you can easily use ingredients found at the grocery store. Try to choose high quality products with short ingredient lists and as few additives as possible. You could also ask around and see if perhaps you have more locally available produce than you currently know about. You might be surprised!
This recipe is perfect for events like a baby shower, bridal shower, playdate, or ladies’ luncheon. The layers of yogurt and strawberry make a really pretty dessert, and the nutrition and flavors make it a crowd favorite.
- If you are using store-bought yogurt, you may need to thin the yogurt down a bit with some milk. This is especially true if you are using Greek yogurt.
- Add a touch of water to the strawberry jam to thin it out a bit. If it is too thick, it will not freeze well. You can also do thinner layers of jam to ensure an adequate freeze.
- A funnel is super helpful to get the ingredients into the molds without making a huge mess. For this recipe, I use homemade yogurt and homemade strawberry jam.
- If you do not have these ingredients available, you can easily substitute them for store-bought.
- If you use a store-bought, sweetened yogurt, you may want to skip adding the honey or simply add less. Taste the yogurt first, then add the honey as desired.

Measuring cups and spoons
How To Make Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles:
In a bowl, mix honey, yogurt, and vanilla extract together well. If the yogurt is too thick, then add a touch of milk to thin it out a bit. It should be pourable, but not too thin like milk kefir.
Mix strawberry jam with water in a small bowl and set aside.
To a popsicle mold, pour in some of the yogurt. I find this easiest (and far less messy) when using a funnel.
Add a layer of jam, pressing it down slightly.
Follow with another layer of yogurt, then jam, until the molds are almost filled, ending with the yogurt layer. Leave a little bit of headspace to allow for the popsicle stick to be inserted without the ingredients overflowing.
Add popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 3 hours or until completely frozen.
