This Frozen Fruit and Yogurt Popable Bites are the perfect kid’s summer treat!
Watch the girls make these Frozen Fruit and Yogurt Popable Bites!
Growing up, the summers meant lots of fun! One of the best things was the almost endless amount of ice pops and other frozen treats that we were allowed to consume. I remember whenever we went to my grandparent’s house, we got these ginormous ice pops that took forever to eat.
Naturally, my girls love frozen treats too. What I love is how easy it is to make homemade frozen treats. Kids literally don’t care what you put inside a frozen treat either. It’s the perfect opportunity to stuff in a ton of fruits or vegetables and get in their daily allotment of nutrients. One of the girls favorite ice pops are a combination of avocado and banana. Seriously!
What I don’t like as a parent though, is that any variation of ice pops have a tendency to get a little messy, especially if it’s hot outside. They start dripping. Things get sticky. And often, the kids don’t even want to finish the entire ice pop which is frustrating as we try to limit the waste we have.

Kids are still getting a delicious frozen treat that’s healthy for them, but they can just pop them in their mouth and eat them within seconds, minimizing the mess and the waste. It’s a win, win for everyone. Plus they are super easy to make. Our girls loved making them almost entirely by themselves.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- Let frozen berries, slightly unthaw.
- Chop with a knife into tiny pieces.
- Combine chopped mixed berries and chopped strawberries together in a bowl.
- Inside silicone mold, layer berry mixture, then yogurt.
- If any berry mixture is left over, top yogurt with remaining mixture.
- Place in freezer for 4 hours or until frozen solid.
- Serve immediately or pop out and store in air tighter container in freezer for up to 2 weeks.
Tip: Empower your kids by letting them cut things on their own. These amazing kid’s knives are what we are using in the video. They are sharp enough to cut the food, but they can’t cut your child. The girls love asking for their knives to take control themselves in the kitchen!
