This Mama’s tips for making Greek Yogurt Popsicles

I used Yellow Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds to make my coffee flavored homemade yogurt popsicles. There are also Green Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds.

Tovolo makes all shapes and sizes of ice pop molds. I own several but like the Groovy and the Star Tovolo Star Pop Molds the best.

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.

More ways to flavor your yogurt popsicle recipes

Feel free to change my basic yogurt popsicle recipe by using your favorite sugar free coffee creamer flavor or a flavored coffee.

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.

    Tried the same molds you used but had unfavorable
    results . Even though my wife followed instructions
    to a T, the sticks came out without the filling and this
    Was so frustrating so thinking of sending back.Please,
    any advice, and thanks,Monica

      I find that the sticks come out when the pops are slightly unfrozen throughout and stick on the outside more than they are frozen onto the sticks. (I’ve had the same problem as you!) The best way to remove them from the molds is to fill a large bowl with warm/hot water and dip the pops in the bowl. That way only the outside is unfrozen and you can pull them out of the mold before the inside gets mushy and unstuck from the sticks.

      Hope that helps a bit.
