These Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles are a healthy frozen treat to cool down while slimming down this summer!
It’s official. My clothes shrunk. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but it happened.
Either that, or all that surplus eating I’ve been doing has finally caught up to me. Remember that operation stop being a fatty I was on back in the winter. Well, it had an adverse side effect. I became a fatty.
So although summertime is pretty much the worst time every to try to eat better and lose some fattiness, it’s a necessity.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ll still be indulging here and there (and there and there and there). But hey, maybe I’ll actually put one leg in front of the other for an extended period of time now and again. I believe normal people call that exercise.
And everyday summer eating? It’s time to make some better choices. Good news? These Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles are a way to indulge without actually indulging all that much. Heck, I may have even had one for breakfast after a recent run (very light jog).
Don’t have a popsicle mold yet? C’mon, treat yourself. You deserve it 😉
This is the popsicle mold that I currently own and am loving.
And listen, once you make these bad boys, feel free to get a bit crazy and try these Peach Blueberry Margarita Popsicles on for size.
And listen, in the grand scheme of things, these popsicles are a relatively healthy snack or dessert. Heck, maybe not for a superman triathlete like my man Mike.
But for a guy that is one step short of brushing his teeth with milkshakes, I’ll take these Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles any day as a healthy alternative 🙂

Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 4-6 Popsicles 1x
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup half and half
- 1 pint blueberries
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Puree blueberries in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Strain blueberry puree through a fine mesh sieve into a medium mixing bowl.
- Add yogurt, half and half, sugar, and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Depending upon the size of your molds, you can probably fill 4 to 6. If your popsicle mold does not have a lid, cover the top with foil and outline each well with your fingers. Cut a tiny slit in the middle of each well and insert popsicle stick.
- Freeze for 4 hours or overnight, or until frozen solid.
- When ready to serve, unmold popsicles. Briefly dipping molds in warm water helps the popsicles to cleanly release.
- Prep Time: 10 mins
Ready to up your popsicle game? Try out these Peach Blueberry Margarita Popsicles!

Chris, these are so pretty! And I love the flavors. I’m so happy you guys got the keys to your house. So exciting!
Thanks so much Bri!
Of course I love everything blueberry. This is no different. Love the simplicity here.
Have a great day!
Thanks Melanie 🙂
Alright, I buy one of those molds now! Why am I not making more Popsicles? What is wrong with me? Oh, and if I made and ate all the yummy things that you do, I’d be that 900 pound woman on TLC. Clothes are allowed to shrink as we get older, right? I know mine sure have 😉 And can I just say, exercise sucks! Eat more healthy ice pops, that’s what I’d do 😉
YES! Glad I convinced you to buy a mold haha. There’s so much awesomeness that you can do with all that amazing fruit that your harvest at home and from your farmer’s market and foraging adventures!
Oh, yum. And yes, now I want a popsicle mold!
Good luck with the weight loss thing (she says while eating chocolate).
Hahaha, that’s my problem… chocolate bars on the treadmill.
These blueberry Greek yogurt popsicles are bursting with vibrant color and goodness of healthy antioxidants. How can one resist them?
Hahaha exactly… thanks Shibi!
These popsicles look awesome! I love that blueberry color. I’ve been trying to exercise a lot recently and it’s just sooo boring, ughhhh. These popsicles look like a much more fun way to eat healthy. 🙂
These look absolutely awesome, Chris!! Love the flavors, can’t wait to give them a shot!
Thanks so much Matt!
I love this lightened up way to splurge in a frosty treat…now all I need is the popsicle mold. Maybe I’ll just use cups? These need to happen soon! 🙂
You totally need a popsicle mold! Cups will also work just fine 🙂

Oh, my clothes shrink all the time! If fact, these last few weeks, it seems they’ve shrunk even more than usual. 😉 Killer popsicles!
Hahaha weird how that happens, right 😉
Wow, wow, wow Chris, you portray me as some sort of health freak, but I’m not that bad.
It’s true that I try to eat healthy, but still if you were to offer me one of those popsicles, I would gladly accept it.
I then may suggest you use honey or maple syrup instead of sugar next time you whip up a batch. But suggestions are always welcomed, right?
You are def the healthy one in our wolfpack! It’s a good thing. Wear it proudly lol. Honey/maple syrup is a great idea… how do they freeze? Similiar to sugar?
Honestly, i’m not a popsickle person
but eversince my lil nieces and nephews really diggin it, i think i’m gonna try this healthy and tasty version,
great job my friend, i know for sure photographing popsickle isn’t that easy actually, Salute!!!
I wish I had one of these right now – it is SO hot here.
I make something very similar, although I use dates instead of sugar.
I am new to your blog, but I have bookmarked it to come back daily 🙂
Love the idea of dates!
These would be so god right now!! I can’t wait t try em.
I think summer is the best time to get in shape. All the amazing produce is out, you naturally want to eat a little lighter, and it’s nice out so you can be more active. Good luck on your journey – you’ll do great. And, yeah, moderation is key. Life’s no fun without some treats!
Treats are key 🙂
Hehe I think my clothes have shrunk lately too despite all the healthy servings of ice cream and cake I’ve been consuming 😉 I think these popsicles are just what I need instead – blueberries and greek yogurt to save the day 🙂 They look amazing!
Weird right? Why do our clothes do this to us?!
Yum! These look delicious! I could have 1, 2,3, or a whole popsicle set!
It is so hot right now, if I was small enough I’d dive into that little black pan and squeeze myself between those popsicles. That would be delicious, heavenly bliss. Haha 😀
Hahaha, bliss indeed!
Easy, peasy, beautiful…popsicles!!
Love blueberries and definitely need to make some yogurt pops not for my little guy!
Oh no! Where did you get that picture of me that’s next to my name? I swear it was one time, it was too much tequila and a stumble into a costume shop!
(LOL, you know I had to after seeing that graphic next to my name)
What picture? The gravatar? That’s pulled automatically from your WordPress profile I think?
Your pops always look so gorgeous and love these 5 ingredient ones, though I might have to replace that half and half with some good ol (lactose free) almond milk.
I have a friend who is constantly trying to gain weight – now I see why he is failing – he hasn’t been brushing his teeth with milkshakes – am so passing that tip on!! 🙂
Almond milk is a great idea! Hahaha yes, brushing your teeth with milkshakes is a great way to fatten up!
LOVE that these have greek yogurt!!! that means I can eat like 33 without guilt, right? riiiiight.
At least 33. Maybe 40.
My husband calls it “closet shrinkage.” The mystery of how the size changes just by hanging clothes in the closet! What a yummy, healthy treat…and one that won’t expand the waistline! Love that!
Hahaha yes! Closet shrinkage!

It’s official: I NEED A POPSICLE MOLD!
Yes, yes you do!!
Healthy popsicles for the win! These look great, Chris! Full disclosure: I say this as I’m stuffing my face with chocolate-covered raisins…
For the win indeed! Hahaha, love your disclosure!

I love the looks of these popsicles – the color is absolutely stunning! And the flavor combo is fantastic as well. Blueberry anything is my favorite! Also, how healthy are they?? What a perfect wholesome snack! I need a dozen of these!
I hope you’re having a great weekend! xxx
Thanks so much Consuelo!
Definitely healthy! I wouldn’t feel one ounce of shame eating these popsicles for breakfast. In fact, I’ll probably do that because it’s been so darn hot! Pinning these to my breakfast board now! (okay, maybe not to my breakfast board…but I’ll put them on my dessert board with a mental note that they belong on a breakfast board;)
Hahaha now that’s a plan 😉
I’d like this popsicle after my morning run/jog too!! The pretty color doesn’t hurt 🙂
Gorgeous! I need to make popsicles. This convinces me! 🙂
Hey, my clothes shrunk too! We must be using the same detergent that’s trying to mess with us. 😉 Gorgeous gorgeous photos! These refreshing treats look delicious (bonus that they are healthy). Have a gretat weekend Chris!
Yes, the detergent. That’s it!!!
Gorgeous! Creamy-dreamy-goodness! After a crazy-busy (AWESOME!) summer with my kiddos … I’m totally trying to eek every bit of summery fun out of our last couple of days. Popsicles are the perfect treat for doing just that! Love all that protein-packed Greek yogurt and nutritious (yummy!) blueberries, too! 😀
Thanks Shelley! Hope you are enjoying the final days with the kids before back to school!
“for a guy that is one step short of brushing his teeth with milkshakes” – gotta say, that cracked me up!! Now I know what I’m going to make with the last of my blueberries I froze from when we went blueberry picking.
