It’s a HOT summer here in Florida, and I have been wanting to make some fun homemade popsicles for my kids. I just got a new silicone popsicle mold, so I decided to start by remaking this older recipe from the blog.
I started with a vanilla greek yogurt base for my popsicles. Then, I cooked up a homemade blueberry compote. Adding them together makes one incredible icy treat!
I was debating what type of popsicle mold to make and decided to go with silicone. I’ve really liked this mold so far! It is very easy to use and clean and the popsicles come out easily. It also came with popsicle sticks, storage bags for finished popsicles and tools for filling and cleaning the popsicle molds.
Just look at how pretty these pops are! I love how the compote created pretty designs when combined with the greek yogurt. These popsicles are sure to delight adults and kids alike.
The blueberry compote is so simple. You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries to make it.
Want to make these popsicles lower in sugar? Vanilla greek yogurt is typically sweetened with sugar so use plain greek yogurt instead. If you want to add some flavor and natural sweetness to the yogurt, you can mix in some maple syrup or honey.

- 1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries (divided)
- 3 tbsp water
- 1/8 cup sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
- Combine 1 cup of the blueberries, water, sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Cook over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries begin to release their juice. Add the remaining blueberries and cook for 8 minutes more, stirring frequently. Let cool.
- Once the compote is cooled, place about a 1-inch layer of greek yogurt in the popsicle molds. Divide the compote evenly among the popsicle molds. Fill the molds to the top with more yogurt.
- Add popsicle sticks and freeze for 3-5 hours or overnight, until completely frozen. Store in the freezer for up to 6-8 months.
Does your popsicle mold make more/less popsicles? For molds that make 4-6 popsicles, make half the amount of blueberry compote and adjust the amount of yogurt accordingly. For molds that make 12 popsicles, use the same amount of compote and add extra yogurt.
Vanilla greek yogurt typically contains added sugar. To make these with less sugar, you can use plain greek yogurt. If you want to add some natural sweetness, add maple syrup or honey to the greek yogurt.
