Warm weather means it’s time to make Greek Yogurt Popsicles! Eating one makes me feel like a kid again.
This frozen yogurt popsicle recipe also tastes like coffee yogurt, which I love.
I also love that they’re a thrifty way to use up leftover morning coffee. I hate throwing it away and don’t always feel like making iced coffee every day.
Plus, these pops are packed with protein from the Greek yogurt making them a terrific afternoon pick me up treat.
This Mama’s tips for making Greek Yogurt Popsicles
I also like the Norpro Frozen Ice Pop Maker since the resulting pops have an old-fashioned feel because of the wooden sticks.
But you’re always having to buy new sticks, which is a pain. However, with the Tovolo ones, you just wash and reuse them, which seems more sustainable.
Freezing ice pops: Depending on your freezer, you’re going to need at least 4 to 6 hours to get your popsicles nicely frozen. I feel that overnight freezing is the best way to go. You just need a little more patience!
Removing pops from the molds: this can be tricky. The best way is to run the molds under warm water for 10-15 seconds. Then carefully and s-l-o-w-l-y remove each popsicle. If they’re not budging, run them under the warm water for a few more seconds.
But don’t turn the pops into a puddle! (If they’ve melted too much, just put them back into the mold. Then stick them into the freezer for an hour. Or go , what they hey, and devour them immediately!)
You can then place the released popsicles back into the freezer for later (place them in a ziplock baggie so they don’t pick up any weird flavors from the freezer) or eat them immediately.

Or make your coffee stronger by adding some espresso powder. Though if you do that, you may want to make these Greek yogurt popsicles adult only!
You may want to make any coffee popsicles adult only depending on your kids’ sensitivity to caffeine. No reason to keep the kids going like Energizer bunnies all day and night!
Add some berries, bananas or protein powder for a nutritional boost. I especially love Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Powder. Either vanilla or chocolate protein powder would be yummy. I add this type of protein powder to my Berry Smoothie.
