Don’t be intimidated by the idea of using honey in recipes. Honey is a natural sugar made by honey bees. But, it is a wonderful food source for us too – containing sugars, vitamins, minerals, and even some antioxidants.

Refreshing Honey Yogurt Berry Pops

Honey popsicles made with natural ingredients are nutritious. Even more important – making your own gives you full control. You can avoid the artificial flavors and added sugars found in commercial foods.

Now, it is important to remember that honey is a natural sugar. It does have calories but it is probably better for you than regular cane sugar – or heaven forbid – high fructose corn syrup!

Whether you are looking for a guilt-free snack or a way to beat the heat on a hot Summer day, these honey pops are just right.

Gather your ingredients- this is really a simply list. And, you can make some substitutions if desired.

  • blueberries
  • raw honey
  • plain Greek Yogurt


To make use of what I had on hand, I used blueberries out of the freezer. Frozen blueberries are just as nutritious as fresh. What a great way to use up last year’s harvest.

However, after thawing, you can see they have a bit of excess liquid. So, if you are using frozen berries let them drain well. Otherwise when you add the yogurt – the mixture will become too watery.

While you do not have to thaw frozen berries for your honey popsicles, I feel it gives me better control of the flavor.

The room temperature berries release some of their juice that helps flavor the yogurt. If you have access to fresh berries – that’s a great option too!

Raw Honey

For this honey popsicle recipe, any variety of honey will work. There is no need to use special types of varieties of honey as the yogurt and berries will hide some of the flavor.

However, it is a good idea to use raw honey as that will have the most nutritional benefits.

Greek Yogurt

Choose any type of Greek yogurt – everyone seems to have a favorite brand. Plain or vanilla may be the best flavor combination with the blueberries.

You may use other types of yogurt but the thick viscosity of Greek makes it perfect and gives us the creamy texture that we want.

Putting it All Together

Step process for making frozen yogurt pops with honey and blueberries. Berries, yogurt covered, spooned into mold and frozen pops.

1. Rinse blueberries and allow to dry. You can use frozen or fresh. If frozen, allow to thaw for best results.

2. Mix together honey and yogurt. Then, carefully fold in blueberries. Try to avoid crushing berries as that releases more juice and makes the mix darker.

3. Spoon mixture into a mold of your choice. Leave a little room at the top to allow for expansion and inserting the top.

4. After a couple of hours, pops can be removed from the mold. If they are stubborn to remove, run the mold under warm water for just a minute.

Expert Tips

As you work with the fruit be gentle. You do not want to squeeze the berries too much. Still, some of that wonderful blue color will leak out and that’s okay.

You don’t have to use a fancy mold. Small cups with wooden popsicle sticks will work too. In this case, you might let the mixture begin to set a bit before inserting the popsicle sticks. However, silicone molds are very handy and fun to use – they are reusable as well.

This is a delicious way to get a little honey in your diet and you can use many different types of fruit – not just blueberries. What about using small pieces of peaches next time?

More Ideas

Another healthy cool down option using honey is honey sweetened lemonade. Pour it in a tall glass with ice and enjoy. If you wish, you can even use it to make honey lemonade popsicles!

Honey is a delicious addition to salad dressing too. A honey lime fruit salad made with fresh in-season fruit is an awesome light meal.

Still got some honey in the jar? What about using Cheerios, peanut butter and honey to make a tasty treat full of protein, energy and even some fiber.

For the very young or young at heart – how about making some honey gummy bears. It is a great way to get a bit of juice in the kids in a fun way.

If you need something to help keep you on the go – Peanut Butter Protein Balls – YUM – they are so good. You can make them ahead of time and freeze for later!

A Final Word

Now, all you have to do is enjoy this delicious healthy Summer treat. Experiment with different flavors of honey and yogurt – or even fruit choices to create special taste experiences.

Long hot Southern Summers are the motivation for this quick treat at my house. Create a special blend to help your family get through those hot days without a meltdown.

Read my disclosure.


  • Silicone Popsicle Mold
  • 1 large bowl


  • 2 ounces raw honey by volume
  • 2 cups blueberries substitute fruit you like
  • 2 cups plain yogurt or vanilla Greek Yogurt


  • Gather your ingredients. You will need a spoon, measuring cup, large bowl and a some type of mold. Any size or style of molds will work fine.
  • Measure 2 cups of berries. Mine were frozen so I allowed them to thaw and rinsed them first. I choose to use blueberries because I had them in the freezer. You can choose any type of fruit you desire.
    Strawberry, watermelon and blackberries are good ones to consider. Put berries in a large bowl.
  • Measure 2 oz of raw honey. Pour it into the bowl with berries and gently stir until berries are coated.
  • Add 2 cups of Greek Yogurt to the berry mixture and stir carefully until all ingredients are combined.
    I used vanilla yogurt to compliment the blueberry flavor. Stir gently, the berries will leak some juice turning the yogurt blue!
  • Spoon the mixture into your honey yogurt pop cups. Leave enough room for expansion and to push the handle into the mold.
    Be sure to clean off any excess mixture that may be around the rim. Then fit the tops on securely.
  • Cool in the freezer for 2 hours. Remove from the freezer when the pops are firm. If necessary, rinse the mold under warm water for a few seconds to facilitate removal.


You can use any type of yogurt but vanilla is a good bland variety that lets the flavor of the fruit shine through.
Fresh or frozen blueberries are okay to use.  If using frozen, allow to thaw and drain first for best results.
