These healthy rainbow ice lollies are made up of yogurt and fruit only. So they are the perfect healthy treat for a hot day!
These ice lollies are so easy and fun to make. You just need some yogurt and your favourite fruit or berries. Then you just freeze them and you can enjoy them as a yummy snack. And having made these at home, you can be certain that they are a healthier treat. They are also a great way to add more fruit to your diet.
The possibilities with these yogurt ice lollies are really endless. To begin with, you may be wondering what yogurt to add. I’d say, you just need natural yogurt. It’s best for it to be unflavoured as we will be adding plenty of flavour with the fruit.
I always have some natural yogurt at home. I make it myself all the time and have tested many recipes, especially for vegan coconut yogurt. Now I have a method that never fails me. Here are my top two preferred ways of making yogurt – How-to: DIY homemade Natural Yogurt and Homemade Dairy-free Coconut Yogurt.
In case you really can’t handle unflavoured yogurt, then maybe you can add a bit of vanilla and make vanilla yogurt. Check how I make vanilla powder at home – it’s so easy and great to have at hand.
The fruit ice pop recipe I am describing below is really quite simple. As mentioned, you just need your favourite fresh fruit and berries. You can use what’s in season like strawberries or raspberries or go more exotic and use mango, passion fruit and dragonfruit. You can mix the flavours or even just stick to one (which would actually make this recipe even more simple and quick to assemble).
These rainbow popsicles can really be personalised to your taste. Lately, I’ve been adding some Homemade Granola and have been loving the results. Plus, the addition of the oats and the nuts really makes me feel full for longer.
Other things you could add are puffed quinoa, chocolate shavings, chopped nuts. As I was saying, the possibilities are endless. If you try a different fruit or decoration every time, you will never get bored of these frozen yogurt fruity lollies!
So, let’s see the basic recipe.
What you need:
- Natural Yogurt
- Blueberries, raspberries, mango to mix with the yogurt
- Extra berries and other fruit for decoration, homemade granola, or puffed quinoa
Here’s the steps:
Begin by separating the yogurt in three bowls – each will have a different coloured yogurt.
Incorporate the fruit mash into the yogurt in each bowl. This will be the base for the ice lollies.
Decoration option 1:
Decorate your lolly moulds with fruit cuttings. I used strawberry hears, kiwi flowers, dragonfruit stars and passion fruit.
Freeze for at least 3-4 hours. Then enjoy!
Decoration option 2:
Fill the lollies silicone mould with the fruity yogurt.
Then cover the top with granola or puffed quinoa. Make sure to press the granola/quinoa gently into the yogurt so it “sticks” to the lollies.
Place the moulds in the freezer for 3-4 hours. Then enjoy!
Once the lollies are frozen, you can remove them from the silicone moulds. Place them in a freezer-safe container.
A box/glass container takes less space than the mould and you can also close the lid so your lollies stay safe.
