These healthy Roasted Berry Greek Yogurt Popsicles are made with creamy greek yogurt and a swirl of honey-roasted berries.
How did Greek yogurt get so popular? That’s my question. Almost nothing about it in mainstream media and then in the last few years, it’s like Greek yogurt has become the favourite child of the yogurt family. At first I assumed it was just a fad, until I tasted it. Oh boy. That thick, creamy texture and sweet and tangy taste? Greek yogurt is here to stay, as you can see from these roasted berry Greek yogurt popsicles.
One of the best things about Greek yogurt is its versatility. Don’t have sour cream on hand? Plain Greek yogurt. Subbing it in for butter for some baking recipes? Go for it. How about using it in healthy, fruity popsicles? The obvious choice.
We can’t forget the other superstar ingredients in these roasted berry Greek yogurt popsicles, though. If you’ve never roasted berries before, you’re in for a treat. Any type of small fresh berry will do: sweet raspberries, subtle blueberries, chopped strawberries. Take your berries, toss them gently with sugar, sea salt and honey, and spread them in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. Roast them up in the oven and stay in the kitchen while cooking to smell the heavenly scent of fresh honey-roasted berries. It’s life-changing.
While it may not be dresses and shorts weather yet, it’s nice to appreciate a good popsicle and pretend you’re kicking back at the beach, warm sun on your face, sand between your toes, ocean waves breaking, the distant cry of sea gulls . . .
. . . Aaaand we’re back to spring (sort of).
Warm weather or not, a delicious frosty roasted berry Greek yogurt popsicle is a healthy whole food treat that will satisfy that ever-present sugar craving. Yogurt, berries, and honey; that’s all there is to it!

Total Cost = $7.38 (Budget breakdown below recipe)
- 2 pints berries (blueberries, raspberries, small-diced strawberries)
- 2 tsp. granulated sugar
- Pinch of sea salt
- ¼ cup honey, separated*
- 2 cups plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt
- ½ small lemon, juiced
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- In a small bowl, gently mix berries, sugar, sea salt and 2 tbsp. of the honey. Spoon berries onto the prepared baking sheet evenly and bake for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice and the remaining honey. Add more lemon juice for more tart popsicles.
- When berries are done roasting, allow to cool for 10 minutes, then add to Greek yogurt mixture. Very gently fold in (stir less to obtain a marbled effect). Pour mixture into popsicle mould, add sticks, and freeze for at least 4 hour or overnight. To remove, run warm water on the outside of the moulds, then shimmy the popsicles out.
