Vegan Yogurt Fruit Popsicles

These delicious Vegan Yogurt Fruit Popsicles will be a family favourite. They only use 4 ingredients per flavour and are quick and easy to make. These popsicles are packed with wholesome fruits, probiotics and can be made using your favourite sweetener. We have made these popsicles with stevia, maple syrup, and monk fruit sweetener.


Store-bought popsicles are expensive, and loaded with white sugars, fruit juices, food dyes, and unhealthy ingredients. The best part of making your own at home is you get to control what goes into your popsicles. These vegan yogurt fruit popsicles are loaded with whole fruits and probiotic-rich coconut yogurt. The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for them to freeze, lol.

All about popsicle healthy sweeteners

Maple Syrup

 Did you know that maple syrup is a good source of manganese, a mineral that helps improves energy production and is necessary for a healthy brain and nerve function? Maple syrup also has riboflavin (a B vitamin), that aids in the metabolic process. Lastly, maple syrup has sources of zinc, which is essential for a healthy immune system. Other minerals found in maple syrup are magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Opt for organic grade A maple syrup where ever possible.

Stevia

Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the stevia plant and is 200 times sweeter than sugar. That is why a few drops are all you need in a recipe. Stevia is known as a safe and healthy sugar substitute that can sweeten up foods without the adverse health effects linked to refined sugar. Stevia does not affect microbiome health like most zero-calorie sweeteners.

Monk Fruit

Monk fruit sweetener is 150-200 times sweeter than sugar, and like stevia does not contain calories or sugar. Monk fruit is safe for people with diabetes, children, and adults to consume. Like everything, moderation is key. When purchasing monk fruit sugar, make sure that it isn’t mixed with any other sugar alcohols like Erythritol.

Why I opt out of white sugar

White sugar, for me, is never a go-to sweetener, because it is void of any nutrients and heavily processed. Not to mention for this recipe, it is better to stick with liquid sweeteners so that it dissolves easier.

To make these Vegan Yogurt Fruit Popsicles, you will need:

Popsicle moulds- The popsicle moulds I used for these popsicles I purchased of Amazon here is the link. If you don’t have moulds, you can get creative. You can use paper cups and use spoons for your popsicle sticks. Muffin tins work great as well.

Fresh or Frozen Fruit– For the two popsicle recipes I am sharing, we used Mango lime and raspberry vanilla. But you can use any fruit you like for the filling.

Sweetener- Look above for ideas on what sweetener to use. Make it sugar-free by using stevia or monk fruit.

Coconut Yogurt– Use your favourite brands of coconut yogurt I love Maison Riviera and Yoso Yogurt. They both make lovely coconut yogurts that are dairy-free. I used unsweetened for the recipes, but you can also use one of their sweetened and flavoured ones.

These popsicles would be an excellent addition for the kids at a family BBQ. Also, when they have sore throats because you can make them with no additional sugar, these would be the perfect throat soothers.

Ingredients

    Mango Lime
  • 2 cups frozen mangoes
  • 8 drops stevia
  • 2 medium limes juiced (2 tbsp lime juice)
  • 1 3/4 cup coconut yogurt (unsweetened)
  • 2 limes zested
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or sub for 10-15 drops of stevia
  • Raspberry Vanilla
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 8 drops stevia
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup coconut yogurt (unsweetened) or sub for vanilla and omit sweetener and vanilla
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or 10-15 drops of stevia

Instructions

    Raspberry Vanilla
  • Put the frozen raspberries into a medium sauce pan. Heat on medium low and use a fork to break up fruit, then add in stevia and vanilla.
  • Cook on medium low until thickens a bit. Doesn't have to be super thick as it will freeze fine regardless. But it is nice to reduce it down for a flavour boost.
  • Pour raspberry mixture into bowl to cool.
  • Once at room temperature take out your yogurt and popsicle moulds. I have mentioned above in the post other ideas for moulds.
  • Add your sweetener of choice to your yogurt and add vanilla. Stir.
  • Place 1 tbsp of yogurt mixture into popsicle mould. Then place 1 tbsp of raspberry mixture. Alternating until the popsicle mould is full.
  • Continue until all 6 moulds are full.
  • Freeze in freezer for 6 hours.
  • Run warm water over popsicle moulds to release popsicles.
  • Mango Lime
  • Put the frozen mangoes into a medium sauce pan. Heat on medium low and use a fork to break up fruit, then add in stevia and juice of two limes.
  • Cook on medium low until thickens a bit. Doesn't have to be super thick as it will freeze fine regardless. But it is nice to reduce it down for a flavour boost.
  • Pour mango lime mixture into bowl to cool.
  • Once at room temperature take out your yogurt and popsicle moulds. I have mentioned above in the post other ideas for moulds.
  • Zest your limes. Try not to get any of the white part as it is bitter, just the outside green part.
  • Add your sweetener of choice to your yogurt and add the zest of 2 limes. Stir.
  • Place 1 tbsp of yogurt mixture into popsicle mould. Then place 1 tbsp of mango mixture. Alternating until the popsicle mould is full.
  • Continue until all 6 moulds are full.
  • Freeze in freezer for 6 hours.
  • Run warm water over popsicle moulds to release popsicles.
