These homemade banana popsicles are made with only 4 healthy ingredients: bananas, plain greek yogurt, vanilla, and fresh fruit of your choice. I made them with strawberries, but you are welcome to use other berries, tropical fruits, or stone fruits! Recipe is added sugar free and a source of protein and fiber. Can be made dairy-free/vegan, if desired.

Looking for a refreshing, yet healthy summer treat? These banana yogurt popsicles are like smoothies in a fun ice pop form!

All you need to make them are FOUR simple ingredients and about 15 minutes of active prep time (so easy!!)

In addition to the bananas, you can use any other fruit of your choice to flavour these – like strawberries, mangos, peaches, and more. I’ve included a list of fruit flavour ideas for your below for inspiration.

As a dietitian, I love how this recipe is a fun and delicious way to get nutritious fruits and protein-packed greek yogurt in. It’s a recipe both kids and adults alike will love!

What makes these banana popsicles a healthy dessert option?

Simply put, their ingredients are packed with nutrition benefits! Let’s do a deep dive:

  1. Bananas are rich in dietary fiber and are a source of micronutrients like potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and magnesium.
  2. Greek yogurt is an excellent source of complete protein, as well as many B-vitamins, vitamin A, and minerals like selenium, phosphorus, and calcium. Plain Greek yogurt does not have any added sugars or artificial ingredients in it.
  3. Fresh fruits will vary in their exact nutrient breakdown, but in general they are a good source of fiber, antioxidants, and various micronutrients (vitamins + minerals).

I find that using ripe bananas and fruit add enough sweetness that you don’t need to add any added sugars! Plus, greek yogurt packs in protein and fats to lessen blood sugar spikes and to make this dessert more satisfying 🙂

Recipe + flavour variations

Banana is one of those fruits that goes with SO many other fruits. Why not try making these popsicles with:

  • berries, like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries (or a combination!)
  • tropical fruits, like mango, papaya, or pineapple
  • stone fruits, like peaches, nectarines, or cherries (just be sure to remove the pits!)

Choose your favourites, or switch things up for variety 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-large bananas, ripe
  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups fresh fruit of choice (see notes for ideas)

Instructions

  • Peel bananas and add them to a high speed blender.
  • Add greek yogurt, vanilla, and fresh fruit of choice to blender. Depending on the fruit you are using, please be sure to remove any stems, pits, or hard-to-eat peels! See notes for fruit ideas.
  • Blend on high until a smooth mixture forms. TIP: if your blender has trouble achieving a smooth consistency, you are welcome to add a splash of water or milk to help things along.
  • Pour mixture into popsicle molds and place popsicle sticks inside. Freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or overnight, until popsicles harden.
  • To eat, remove each popsicle from its mold. You can let them sit out for a few minutes OR help things along by running the mold under warm water until the popsicle comes loose. Enjoy!

Notes

*SERVINGS: Recipe as written should make roughly 6 popsicles, depending on the size of your popsicle moulds. If you have any leftover mixture in the blender, simply throw in some ice cubes and blend the remainder into a smoothie for a snack!
*POPSICLE FLAVOUR IDEAS: Use one of (or a combination) of these fruits as directed in the recipe. They all taste great with bananas + yogurt! Aim for 1.5 cups of:
  • berries, like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries
  • tropical fruits, like mango, papaya, or pineapple (be sure to remove the skins)
  • stone fruits, like peaches, nectarines, or cherries (just be sure to remove the pits!)
 
*VEGAN OPTION? To make these vegan/dairy-free, you can use a dairy-free alternative to Greek yogurt. I’d advise using one that has a similar, thick texture. A coconut-based one would taste fabulous!
