Summer in Florida is in full swing. Sure the kids are still in school for a couple more weeks, but the heat and humidity are setting in. So…it’s frozen ice pops season! Today we are sharing our recipe for Strawberry Banana Yogurt Ice Pops.
The kids and I love to make frozen pops together. Popsicles are one of the components in my parenting toolkit, my daughter went through a few years of two or more popsicles a day. (Read why—> here.) Luckily, popsicles are more a treat than a necessity right now in our lives.
We like trying new homemade popsicle recipes for the fun of it.
There is just something about that feeling when a sweet frozen treat touches your tongue on a stifling hot day. It’s like jumping into a cold spring on a 100-degree day. It’s refreshing and you want more!
But, I also use popsicles to ensure that my children are getting the necessary nutrients.
My little boy goes through spurts when I watch what and how he eats and all I can think is, “when did my sweet boy turn into an insatiable billy goat?” (I think of goats because my sister wants to start a landscaping company that rents out goats. She’s the girliest person I know. Just thinking about it makes me laugh.)
Anyway, my kid is always hungry. He loves to swim all summer–which makes him even hungrier.
I wanted to make filling, healthy popsicles for him to snack on.

What you need to make the strawberry banana yogurt pops:
- 1 container Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt, Summer Strawberry or non-dairy alternative
- 1 very ripe banana
- 3-4 ripe strawberries
- splash of milk
- Popsicle Mold
How to make the frozen pops:
Mash banana and blend together with a splash of milk.
Chop up strawberries and puree them with the yogurt.
Drop a heaping spoonful of the banana mixture into each mold. Do the same with a spoonful of Annie’s Homegrown Yogurt and strawberry mixture on top of the banana puree. Repeat until the four molds are full.
Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
When completely frozen, run water over the bottom of the mold and gently remove your homemade yogurt pops.
The banana is a great source of potassium while the strawberry has loads of Vitamin C. I like the added calcium and protein from the yogurt. Annie’s new yogurt is organic and made from healthy whole milk. It’s a healthy option for my yogurt-loving little boy.
I make this yogurt ice pop with So delicious yogurt for my dairy-free daughter.
