The fact that you can make popsicles using fresh or frozen raspberries is one of my favourite parts of this easy homemade popsicle recipe. This means that I can buy raspberries when they’re discounted and on sale, and during the times that they’re not, I can use frozen instead.

The next time that you want a cool and naturally sweet treat keep this Greek yogurt popsicle recipe close. Because once that craving hits, it’s time to act and create asap!
What Can You Use If You Don’t Have Popsicle Molds?
Don’t worry. You can still make these popsicles even if you don’t have popsicle molds. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
All you need to do is use small plastic or styrofoam or plastic cups. Just fill them two-thirds of the way and place the wooden stick in the center. Then freeze them carefully on a lined baking sheet laid perfectly flat, so they won’t spill. It’s as easy as that!
Ingredients And Substitutions
Fresh or frozen raspberries – Either works perfectly fine. Just use what you have and enjoy.
Plain whole Greek yogurt – Be sure that you’re using Greek yogurt, so you get a little protein boost. Greek yogurt is also thicker which helps the popsicles set up more easily.
Powdered sugar Swerve – The perfect sweetener to add without adding calories or carbs.
Vanilla extract – A small hint of vanilla flavour makes these popsicles perfect.
Silicone popsicle molds with wooden popsicle sticks – This makes taking the popsicles out of the molds super simple.
How To Make Keto Raspberry Popsicles
- Beat greek yogurt until creamy. Then add vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
- Next, add powdered sugar. Whisk to break any possible sweetener lumps in your popsicles.
- Then, fold in raspberries and stir until well combined.
- Finally, arrange your silicone popsicle molds on a flat surface like a plastic or wooden board. Then fill the molds to the top. Enjoy any yogurt leftovers immediately. It’s so delicious!
- Place the popsicles in the freezer for 6 hours or until completely hardened. Overnight is best.
How To Store
You have to store these popsicles in the freezer! Period! As long as you keep them in the molds, they should stay fresh and delicious for several days. (I highly doubt that they’re going to last that long!)
Can I use regular sugar instead?
You can, but it’s going to change the carb and calorie count and may also change the flavour. To keep these popsicles keto-friendly, I recommend using your favourite low-carb sweetener.
I prefer using powdered Swerve because it blends into the Greek yogurt seamlessly without leaving a gritty texture.
- If you don’t have Greek yogurt, you can choose to use heavy cream or even canned coconut milk instead.
- If you want to replace the Swerve, you can use monk fruit or powdered erythritol instead. (Using erythritol is ⅓ less sweet, so figure that in when you’re adjusting.)
- Be sure that you give the popsicles six full hours (at least) to chill and firm up in the fridge. If you are impatient and remove the mold too early, the popsicles are going to fall apart and be a mess. (a delicious mess, but still a mess)
- If you want to add things to this simple popsicle recipe, go for it. Just know to factor in all the additions to your carb and calorie count.
Can I use sweetened or fruit yogurts?
You can, but this means that you’ll want to adjust the amount of sweetener that you’re using since you’ll be adding in extra sweetness.
Changing up the type of yogurt will also mean that these popsicles may no longer be low carb and also have an increase in calories. Some people like to use vanilla-flavoured yogurt or fruit-flavoured yogurt as well. While they’re tasty options, they’ll add a lot of sweetness to this recipe that you’ll have to account for and adjust for.
How to Easily Get Popsicles Out of Their Molds
Sometimes the popsicles just don’t want to release from the molds. It’s common – it’s really not anything that you’ve done incorrectly to make this happen.
To get the popsicles out of the mold, add hot water to a tray and place the mold into the water. (Don’t get any of the actual popsicle wet – just the mold!) Let it sit for 30 seconds, and then you should be able to slide the popsicle out easily.
You can also run hot water from the tap on the mold for 30 seconds as well to achieve the same results.
Do whatever is easiest for you to get that frozen popsicle loose!
How Long Do Popsicles Last in the Freezer?
Store-bought popsicles will last longer thanks to all the ingredients I can’t pronounce. But these I find are best eaten within the first two weeks.
Why do you have to fold in the fruit instead of stirring it in?
It’s all about being careful and not breaking up the raspberries into too small of pieces. If you fold the raspberries, this will help them keep their shape and also have them retain their juices, too.
You can totally stir them into the Greek yogurt, but you risk breaking them apart. Not sure how to fold? Here’s a Schitt’s Creek episode about folding for a good laugh. You are in good company!
But seriously, folding ingredients means taking a spatula and almost flipping the batter in the bowl bringing the batter from the bottom up and over the “folded” ingredients until they are evenly disbursed. Not stirring which is much more vigorous and disruptive. Here is a video that may help.
Can I make these popsicles using other fruit flavours?
Absolutely! You can totally change up the added fruit to easily change up the flavour. Think outside the box and have fun on this one.
Fresh or frozen mango would be delicious, as would fresh or frozen strawberries. Any type or kind of fruit that you want to try with this easy popsicle recipe is a great idea to make!
