July 7th was National Strawberry Sundae Day. So, how did you celebrate? A parade with floats and a marching band? Fireworks? The construction of a strawberry sundae big enough to be recorded in The Guinness Book of World Records?
Don’t worry if you missed out on the celebration! Really – we’ve got all the celebration you need right here!
Because when we saw National Strawberry Sundae Day on the calendar, it sent us into quite a whirlwind of activity. After considering a whole host of strawberry sundae food ideas (yeah … strawberry sundae baked potatoes didn’t make the cut …), and after making five batches of strawberry sundae ice pops (our tiny taste-tester minions are loving us this week!), we finally settled on ice pops worthy of such a momentous occasion.
These are just the right balance of sweet but healthy, bursting with huge strawberry flavor and studded with little chocolate chips so you really get the sundae vibe. (Because, seriously, what self-respecting sundae doesn’t have some chocolate on it?)
Who doesn’t love a refreshing popsicle, especially on a meltingly hot summer day? If you read our recent post on making fruit kabobs, then you know we’re big fans of how food on a stick can inspire healthful munching. Ice pops take that to a whole new level – frozen food on a stick! Bonus!
Plus these are just so easy to make – and easy to pack with nutritious ingredients like fruit and yogurt. Double bonus!
How to Make These Strawberry Popsicles
1) Simply pour all of the ingredients (except the whole strawberries and chocolate chips) into a blender or food processor (we use our Ninja), and blend until smooth.
2) Add in your strawberries and blend again until the berries are the desired consistency. Most of our taste-testers loved small bits of real strawberry, but our littlest tester insisted perfectly smooth is much better. Let your own taste testers be your guide.
3) Turn your blender off and stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon or scraper.
4) Pour the delicious concoction into your ice pop molds (we use these molds). You should have about enough for 10 (3-ounce) popsicles.
5) Freeze until solid. The exact amount of time that will take depends on how cold you keep your freezer, and even which part of the freezer you put them in (and how cold it is there). Plan on at least 2 hours, though.
That’s it! Super quick and simple!
And such a wonderful summer treat – healthy enough to double as a refreshing dessert or a nutritious snack!
Warmest wishes to you and yours for a joyous National Strawberry Sundae Day!
Strawberry Sundae Yogurt Ice Pops
So deliciously refreshing and indulgent, but so nutritious, too! These Strawberry Sundae Greek Yogurt Popsicles are bursting with fresh strawberries and chocolate – like portable strawberry sundaes!
• Ready in 30 Minutes or Less (Plus Freezing) • Freezable • Make Ahead • Vegetarian • Gluten Free •
- 3/4 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 5 tablespoons 100% pure fruit strawberry jelly or jam
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons nonfat milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 16 ounces fresh strawberries, stems removed
- 3-4 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
- In a blender or food processor (we use our Ninja), combine yogurt, jelly, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Add strawberries and process until desired degree of smoothness is reached (we prefer some bits of whole strawberries).
- Turn blender off and mix in chocolate chips with a spoon or scraper just until evenly dispersed.
- Divide evenly between 10 (3-ounce) ice pop molds (we use these molds).
- Freeze until solid (the exact time depends on how cold you keep your freezer), then unmold and enjoy.
Once your pops are frozen, if you want to remove them from the molds (so, for example, you can use the molds to make more pops!), the best way to store your pops is individually wrapped in plastic, and then stored together in a large freezer bag.

These are AMAZING! My daughter and I devoured these, they were SO good! They are creamy, full of sweet strawberry flavor with little bits of semi-sweet chocolate. Perfect combo! Another amazing thing about this recipe is that it’s healthy. Only 3 WW points (on the blue plan) for one of these and they totally solve my craving for ice cream. So easy, so healthy, and you’ll be sad when they’re gone. We are… Guess I should make more!
Haha – you’re totally right, Christine – we’re DEFINITELY sad when these are gone, too! 😀 I’m delighted that you and your daughter loved them so much. We always test, test and re-test our recipes, searching for the best possible balance of delicious, easy, and healthy. Our goal is definitely to create recipes that are so yummy, nobody will even notice or care that they’re nutritious, too. It makes me truly happy that you thought these popsicles hit the mark on that! Thank you oodles for the lovely feedback – it truly means so much, especially coming from another wonderful blogger!
Hooray for popsicle season, these look amazing!
Oh, Sue – you’re so sweet – thank you! I really do love these and am so excited for the weather to turn to “popsicle season” (yes!! definite hooray!!). It’s funny – just the other day, I was driving the carpool after track practice and somehow the kiddos got chatting about popsicles. One of my daughter’s friends got all excited, saying how much she loved these strawberry pops, how they were just the absolute best. 😀 Don’t you just love moments like that?!? Total day-maker for food bloggers, huh? Thanks bunches for the sweet comment … and happy (strawberry-filled!) summer! ~Shelley
