It’s no secret that grandparents love spoiling their grandchildren. You may even look at your parents sometimes and think, “Where was this when I was a kid?” However, some of their indulgences may be ruining your waistline. For example, in our house, the grandparents are always sending treats and candies home with us for the kids. It is a super sweet gesture that is greatly appreciated by the kiddos. On the other hand, I regulate how many sweets our kids get so hubs usually eats a good chunk of the sweets sent home. Grandma recently sent a box of push-pops home with us and, of course, the kids loved them! These were the top request whenever allowed to have a treat or dessert. With summer coming up I wanted to come up with a cool treat that I wouldn’t feel guilty about letting them have (or about indulging in myself) so I came up with these ridiculously easy healthy raspberry pops. These seriously take 2 ingredients, freeze, and you’re done!

Also, you don’t have to have any fancy appliances to do this. I don’t own an electric mixer of any kind (this is not true anymore since I received a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas! Yay!) or a food processor. I do have ice pop molds, but you don’t even have to have those. You can use paper cups, ice cube trays, or whatever you have handy. Don’t let a lack of modern conveniences keep you from making this delicious treat.
- 2 Pints of Raspberries
- 16 oz. Lite Strawberry Yogurt
Blend all of the raspberries in your blender until liquefied. I used the smoothie setting on mine.
- If you don’t have a blender you can totally mash up the raspberries by hand using a ladle and a bowl. You won’t get as smooth of a consistency but the pops will still be super tasty!
Add your yogurt to the blender and continue to pulse until well mixed.
- Again, if you don’t have a blender, no worries! Simply mix well in a bowl using a wooden spoon.
Pour into ice pop molds and freeze overnight.
- If you’d like to sweeten these up more, add 1 cup of sugar during step 2. I didn’t and the kids still loved them but they do have a slightly more tart taste because of the raspberries. Also, keep in mind that adding sugar diminishes how healthy the pops are.
Roughly 10 pops depending on the size of your molds. If using small paper cups for this recipe you will have more.
Now you have a delicious and healthy treat to satisfy your sweet tooth without blowing your calories. You can also let kiddos indulge. This is so much healthier than anything you get off the ice cream truck! (Although, those sno-cones are super yummy!) Feel free to mix up the flavors too! Use different fruits and yogurts to make some custom flavors your family will love. You could even have a taste competition to see who invents the best pops! Looking for more guilt-free recipes?
