Peaches and Cream Yogurt Popsicles
Peaches and Cream Yogurt Popsicles- All you need is 4 simple ingredients and 20 minutes to prep these healthy and delicious popsicles. Dairy-free and toddler approved!
I’m one of those people that gets way too excited about fresh fruit in the summertime. Peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, apricots, watermelon…you can find pretty much all of them in my refrigerator this time of year. There just isn’t enough time to devour all of the goodness summer has to offer!
If you’re like me and tend to stock up on more fruit than you know what to do with, these popsicles are a great way to put some of it to good use. I *obviously* had peaches and cream on the brain for this recipe but you can easily sub out the peaches for whatever fruit you have on hand. I mean, virtually everything pairs well with creamy yogurt, sweet honey and crunchy granola.
Yogurt Popsicle Ingredients
What I love about these popsicles is that you only need 4 ingredients to make them! Crazy, I know.
- Yogurt– I opted for plain unsweetened almond milk yogurt because that’s what we always have on hand. I like that it’s higher in protein, low in sugar and has a nice creamy texture. That said, feel free to use whatever yogurt you prefer. Vanilla would be scrumptious, just keep in mind the more sugar in the yogurt, the less honey you’ll want/need to add to the recipe.
- Peaches– Fun fact: unlike bananas, peaches don’t get any sweeter after they are picked. That means they have to be picked at the optimum time in order for them to be perfectly sweet and juicy. That’s a lot of pressure! But when you get them just right, man are they good. If you can’t get your hands on ripe peaches, pretty much any fruit will work in their place. Berries, bananas, nectarines, cherries…the possibilities are endless!
- Honey– I chose to incorporate honey because I used plain unsweetened yogurt so you may not even need it depending on how sweet your yogurt is. If you don’t have honey, maple syrup or agave nectar will work as a substitute. Just be sure to taste test for how much you prefer to use as honey and agave tend to be sweeter than maple syrup.
- Granola– Making homemade granola can be fun but let’s be real. It’s summertime and the last thing any of us want to do is turn on the oven, especially when we’re making popsicles! When I’m in need of something convenient but still wholesome I like using Bob’s Red Mill Homestyle Granolas. The ingredient list is basically the same as anything I would use to make granola at home and I love that they go the extra step to verify that their products are free of gluten and Non-GMO. The coconut spice flavor takes these popsicles to the next level!
How to Make Yogurt Popsicles
First of all, you’ll need two things to make these:
- Popsicle Mold– I use this silicone mold I found on Amazon and it works great! It comes with sticks already too.
- Blender-You’ll also need a blender to really infuse the fruit flavor into the yogurt. For small batches like this recipe, I like to use a NutriBullet because it’s so simple to use and to clean.
Steps to Make Them
- Combine half of the yogurt with peaches and honey in a blender. You’ll want to cut back on the honey if your yogurt is already sweetened. Blend until smooth. Taste test to see if you prefer more sweetener and add as desired.
- Stir together remaining yogurt and honey in a small bowl.
- Layer blended peach yogurt, unblended yogurt, diced peaches, and granola in popsicle molds.
- Freeze for at least 6 hours then serve and enjoy!
They really could not be easier to make and I love the way the granola incorporates texture into the creamy yogurt and chunks of peaches. If you have kiddos, they’re sure to love them too. Grant kept saying “yummy” and “goooooood” the entire time he ate them!

Peaches and Cream Yogurt Popsicles
- 2 cups dairy-free yogurt, ideally plain or vanilla
- 1lb peaches, pitted and diced (about 2-3 medium peaches)
- 3 tablespoons honey, more or less, to taste
- 1 cup granola, such as Bob's Red Mill Homestyle Granola
- In a blender, combine 1½ cups of the diced peaches, 1 cup of the yogurt and 2 tablespoons honey. Blend until smooth then set aside.
- In a small bowl, stir together the remaining yogurt and 1 tablespoon honey. You may want to use more or less honey depending on whether or not your yogurt is already sweetened. Set aside.
- Layer the popsicle molds as follows: 2 tablespoons blended peach yogurt, 1 tablespoon yogurt/honey mixture, 1 tablespoon diced peaches, 1 tablespoon granola. Repeat layers until each mold is full. You should finish with a sprinkle of granola on top (which will end up being the bottom of the popsicle).
- Place cover over the mold and insert the popsicle sticks. Freeze for 6 hours or up to overnight. Serve and enjoy!
