Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops
These Low-Sugar Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Pops are a low-carb frozen treat that will help cool you down and they’re also easy to make! Use any Greek yogurt and sugar-free strawberry preserves for these tasty yogurt pops that are also gluten-free and kid-friendly!
Utah is having a heat wave this summer, so when I was shopping with my sister Val and we discovered popsicle molds on close-out, 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 so I can definitely say they’re kid approved! And these if you use sugar-free strawberry preserves for the extra burst of strawberry flavor, they are pretty low in carbs for adults as well.
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
- fresh strawberries
- sugar-free strawberry preserves (affiliate link)
- Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link), or other sweetener of your choice
- plain Greek Yogurt
What sugar-free strawberry preserves did we use?
A recipe that has fresh strawberries can’t ever be completely sugar-free, but if you use sugar-free strawberry preserves you can keep the sugar amount pretty low. I would use either Polaner Sugar-Free Strawberry Preserves (affiliate link) or Smucker’s Sugar-Free Strawberry Preserves (affiliate link), both of which have a generous amount of fiber. I recently realized the nutritional calculator was calculating the sugar-free preserves incorrectly, so I re-calculated nutritional information using the information on the label and was pleasantly surprised that these were much lower in carbs than I had realized!
What Sweetener did I use?
Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) would be my first choice for this recipe. But use any no-calorie granulated sweetener you prefer, or even sugar if you don’t care about the whole low-sugar thing.
How many yogurt pops did we make?
The Popsicle Molds (affiliate link) we used made 5 popsicles from this amount of ingredients. If your molds are smaller (or larger) you will have to adjust the nutritional information.
Tips for making the frozen yogurt pops:
(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- Here are the Sip-a-Pop Popsicle Molds we found on close-out; if you use molds that are smaller or larger you will need to adjust the nutritional information!
- I was only making a few popsicles, so I used the bowl attachment of my Immersion Blender (affiliate link) to puree the strawberries. Double the recipe and use a food processor if you have a lot of popsicle molds.
- Then I added the strawberry preserves and sweetener and blended it 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.)
- Here’s 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!
- And as I mentioned, we left them in the freezer while we were out and about, but I’m guessing they will take at least 6 hours to freeze.

- 1 generous cup washed and diced strawberries
- 1/2 cup sugar-free strawberry preserves (see notes)
- 1/2 cup Monkfruit sweetener (see notes)
- 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt (see notes)
- 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 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 6 hours for them to get firm. If anyone times them, I would love to edit this!)
If you don’t want the artificial sweetener in the sugar-free preserves, look for preserves labeled “all fruit” which will make the recipe a bit higher in carbs. I love Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link), but use any no-calorie granulated sweetener you prefer. You can use fat-free or full-fat yogurt, whichever you prefer. I didn't specify when I calculated nutritional information, but it seems to be calculating it with fat-free frozen yogurt based on results, so if you use full-fat frozen yogurt there will be more fat.

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 they’re relatively low-carb for a treat. Use full-fat Greek Yogurt for low-carb diets or fat-free Greek Yogurt for Phase 2 or 3 of the original South Beach Diet.
