This strawberry + blueberry popsicle recipe is a huge hit with both kids and adults. Healthy, simple, and delicious, strawberry + blueberry yogurt smoothie popsicles are the perfect healthy treat for a hot summer day. Even picky eaters gobble them up!
Homemade popsicles recipes are an easy way to get kids involved with the cooking and food prep. Even our two-year-old loves to help dump the ingredients into the blender and turn it on. You just blend together fruit, yogurt, and a little bit of sugar and poor the smoothie mixture into your popsicle mold (Need one? This one’s my favorite.) While we layered the fruits for this recipe, you could also mix them together, or adapt the recipe to make strawberry popsicles or blueberry popsicles.
- 2 cups vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup strawberries, sliced

Strawberry Blueberry Popsicle Recipe Tips
- You can use frozen or fresh berries for this recipe. If you use frozen fruit and your blender gets stuck, you can add a bit of liquid to loosen it up enough to blend. Add additionally liquid slowly (try a tablespoon or so at a time). Depending on the recipe flavors, I’ll typically add water, milk, or juice.
- Adding sugar is optional. While it’s not a must for the popsicles, freezing mutes the sweetness of the fruit. Sometimes I leave the sugar out for really sweet fruits, but in general I lean towards adding a little to brighten up the flavors. You can also substitute a bit of honey, agave, or other natural sweetener.
- Feel free to play with the fruit choices. I’ve made these popsicles with blackberries, peaches, and mango. Mess around with different flavor combinations until you find one your kids love.
- You can substitute plain yogurt for the vanilla yogurt. We just enjoy how the vanilla compliments the other flavors.
