Utah is having a heat wave this summer, so when I was shopping with my sister Val and we discovered these Sip-a-Pop Popsicle Molds on close-out for $1.00 a pack, it was a no-brainer. Then the next day my two nephews Ethan and Mitchell came to stay at my house and we had fun adapting my recipe for Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt into popsicles.
Unfortunately we made the pops, put them in the freezer, and then headed out to have fun, so I can’t tell you exactly how long they take to freeze. But the next day when two more kids came to visit, everyone gobbled up the Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops, and wise-beyond-his-years Ethan (who knows a bit about how the blog works) told me I could definitely say they were kid approved!
This was the first recipe I made trying Swerve Sweetener, a natural low-carb sweetener I discovered thanks to Carolyn from All Day I Dream About Food; but you can also make these with Stevia in the Raw, Monkfruit Sweetener, or even sugar if you don’t care about the whole low-sugar thing. I used low-sugar preserves that contain Splenda, but you can also use “no-sugar added” preserves, sometimes labeled “all fruit.”
Here are the Sip-a-Pop Popsicle Molds we found on close-out! I was only making a few popsicles, so I used the bowl attachment of my immersion blender to puree the strawberries. Then I added the strawberry preserves and sweetener and blended it some more. Then add the yogurt and process just until it’s blended. This makes about 1 1/4 cups of the mixture before freezing.
The kids helped me fill the molds up to the line. (This made 5 popsicles total.) And the second photo shows how they looked when the went into the freezer. We made these in about 20 minutes, but if you’re not taking photos, it won’t take that long!

Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops
These Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops are a great cool treat!
- 1 generous cup washed and diced strawberries
- 1/2 cup (or slightly less) low-sugar strawberry preserves (If you don’t want artificial sweetener, look for preserves labeled “all fruit”)
- 1/2 cup sweetener of your choice (or use sugar if you don’t care about the pops being low-sugar)
- 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt (use fat-free or full-fat yogurt, whichever you prefer)
- Use a food processor (or the bowl attachment of an immersion blender) to puree the strawberries.
- Add preserves and sweetener of your choice and blend until the mixture is completely combined.
- Then add the fat-free Greek yogurt and process just until it’s mixed.
- Pour the mixture into a glass measuring cup (or something else with a pour spout) and use that to pour it into popsicle molds.
- Put molds in the freezer and freeze until the pops are hard. (I’m sorry to say we went out to have fun after they were in the freezer so I can only guess, but I’d imagine it would take at least 4 hours for them to get firm. If anyone times them, I would love to edit this!)

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
There is natural sugar in the strawberries, so these Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops can’t ever be sugar-free but these don’t have added sugar, and as long as you use fat-free Greek Yogurt and sweetener I would eat one as a treat for Phase 2 or 3 of the South Beach Diet. They are probably suitable as an occasional treat for most other low-carb eating plans as well; use full-fat Greek yogurt for other diets if you prefer.
