Yogurt and Granola Ice Pops

Here’s a radical idea: Instead of a yogurt, fruit and granola parfait in a bowl, why not freeze all those same ingredients into an ice pop? You can make a batch in advance then pull them out of the freezer when you’re ready. One pop makes a great snack, but you may want a couple of them for breakfast.

  • Duration
  • Prep Time
  • 6 3oz popsServings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp whole-milk or non-dairy milk, or as needed
  • 6 tbsp 100% fruit strawberry preserves
  • 3 strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced (about 4 slices per berry)
  • 6 tbsp all-natural granola (TIP: Avoid brands with dried fruit as it is hard to chew when frozen.)

EQUIPMENT:

  • 6 3-oz ice-pop molds

Preparation

  1. In a large cup with a spout, combine yogurt and enough milk to thin out the yogurt so it can be poured into the molds. Swirl strawberry preserves into yogurt mixture, taking care not to combine well.
  2. Fill the molds one-third full with the yogurt mixture. Slide 2 strawberry slices into each. Add ½ tbsp granola to each. Next, fill up the mold almost to the top with more yogurt, leaving just a little room at the top.
  3. Put an ice-pop stick in the center and add ½ tbsp of granola to each mold. Press granola into the yogurt so it adheres. Cover and freeze until solid, at least 2 hours, but preferably longer. When removing pops from molds, it is helpful to run tepid water on the outside of the mold for a few seconds first.
