If you enjoy yogurt parfaits, you'll love them frozen. They are easy to grab on-the-go and are filling for breakfast or a snack. This also is the perfect activity to do if you have kids!
I have another fun dessert activity that's kid friendly, check out my easy salted apple crisp!
I prepared the berry filling ahead of time as it has to cool so my daughter was able to assemble these with little assistance! Here are a few tips to achieve the best results.
Tips for maximum achievement.
- Prepare berry filling(s) first to allow them to cool.
- Use your favorite flavored greek yogurt for extra flavor. I used vanilla.
- If you're using popsicle molds, be sure to get the appropriate size popsicle sticks. I did not. 🙂
- Make space ahead of time for your popsicles to have room in your freezer. Join me on Instagram to find out why this is important. 🙂
- If you have a small toddler, be sure to grind the granola to make it easy for your toddler to chew. You can also omit the granola.
- Depending on the yogurt you use will determine how much milk you'll need to add. This simply thins the yogurt to allow it to become easy to pour in the popsicle molds.
- When you're ready to eat your parfait popsicles, run warm water over the molds to help with releasing them.
Here's how easily it comes together!
First you'll create the berry compote. I made blueberry and strawberry but use what you have on hand. In a small sauce pot, add the fruit of your choice (if you're doing two flavors, you'll need two separate pots). Add water, honey and lemon juice. The fruit will begin to soften and release their juices, begin "smashing" fruit with a fork or masher.
The sauce will begin to thicken after 3-5 minutes, once it's thick in consistency, the sauce is done. Set compote aside and allow to completely cool.
Repeat this step if you are creating multiple flavors.
While the compote is cooling, in a medium sized bowl add yogurt and almond milk (milk of your choice). Whisk until yogurt is creamy, smooth and slightly runny.
In your popsicle molds add one teaspoon to one tablespoon of yogurt as the first layer. The amount of yogurt needed depends on the shape of the popsicle mold. You'll want between 1-2 inches of yogurt in each layer.
Next, add 1-1.5 teaspoons of the berry compote and follow with another later of yogurt. Then, add about one teaspoon of granola, spread it evenly over the yogurt and follow up with another layer of yogurt.
Repeat those steps until you reach the end of the popsicle mold ending with the last layer of yogurt.
Finally, gently slide popsicle sticks into the center of the popsicle mold and filling and repeat steps until all molds are full.
Place completed popsicle molds in the freezer and allow to chill minimally for fours up to 24 hours before eating.
Frozen Berry Parfait Pops
- Popsicle Molds
- Popsicle Sticks
- 2 cups Greek Yogurt vanilla
- ¼-1/2 cup Almond Milk
- 1 cup Strawberries
- 1 cup Blueberries
- ½-1 cup Water if doing multiple flavors
- 2 tablespoon Honey 1 tablespoon per fruit filling
- 1 Lemon
- ½ cup Granola optional
- Roughly chop strawberries. (Blueberries can remain whole)
- In a small sauce pot, add fruit to pot and ¼ cup of water. Add more water as needed if water evaporates quickly.
- As fruit warms up, juices will release and fruit will begin to break down. When this happens, begin mashing fruit with a fork or masher.
- Once mixture begins to boil, add 1 tablespoon of honey and up to 2 tablespoon of lemon juice to each pot of fruit. Adjust fruit flavor to your liking, I prefer a lot of tart.
- Allow fruit mixtures to completely cool. I place mine in the fridge to speed the process up.
- While fruit compote cools, prepare yogurt mixture by adding yogurt and milk and whisking until mixture becomes runny and smooth.
- If you are using plain greek yogurt, add about 1tbsp of honey and ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Yogurt Parfait Assembly
- Using your popsicle molds. Begin by adding 1tsp-1 tablespoon of yogurt to the first layer. The amount will depend on the shape and size of your mold. You should have about 1-2 inches worth of yogurt.
- Next, add 1 teaspoon of berry filling and follow with 1 tsp-1 tablespoon of yogurt.
- Add 1 teaspoon of granola and top with 1 tsp-1 tablespoon of yogurt.
- Repeat these steps until mold is full ending with the last layer of yogurt.
- Gently place popsicle sticks in the middle of the molds and place in freezer for 4 hours up to 24 hours for maximum hold!
