Lemon-Coconut-Blueberry Frozen Greek Yogurt Pops - Sugar Free

This morning our tile installer is here installing the kitchen backsplash tile. So far, it looks great. He has most of the large wall up and then will work on the short wall. This will probably be a 2-day job for him, but he said he "might" be able to complete it we'll see. I am planning to make these frozen yogurt pops this afternoon. I bought the necessary ingredients and plan to make them when he finishes up. These were some of the best ice cream/frozen yogurt pops I had ever had. I'm re-posting the recipe below and some photos for you to see. If you haven't tried these yet, you definitely need to. If you don't have the popsicle molds, you can make them in little Dixie cups. Check out the photos and recipe below. They are e super easy to make. Enjoy!

Backsplash in progress...unsealed and not grouted. The color will become richer after sealing

If you don't have popsicle molds, you can use little "Dixie cups" and freeze them, either with or without a stick. You don't have to have special molds to enjoy these. There was enough left to make 4 of these little cups.

Lemon-Coconut-Blueberry Frozen Greek Yogurt Pops

1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Greek Yogurt Mixture:
1 24-oz container full fat Greek yogurt, or approximately 2-1/2 cups (like Greek Gods or Fage)
Zest of 2 medium lemons (about 4 teaspoons)
1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener, confectioners style
35 drops stevia, or to taste (or add additional Swerve)

For the Coconut Milk Mixture:
1 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk, preferably full fat (like Native Forest Organic Classic)
1 teaspoon coconut extract (like Bakto or Olivenation)
1/4 cup Swerve Sweetener, confectioners style
14 drops stevia, or to taste (or additional Swerve)

In a medium bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon zest, 1/2 cup Swerve, and 35 drops stevia and mix well. Taste and add additional sweetener, if desired.

In a 2-cup glass measuring cup or separate medium bowl, combine coconut milk, coconut extract, 1/4 cup Swerve and 14 drops stevia.  Pour coconut milk mixture into yogurt mixture and whisk together until well combined. Taste for sweetness and adjust, if necessary. (I added an additional 10 drops of stevia to slightly over-sweeten since freezing tends to decrease the level of sweetness).  

Using a glass measuring cup (or other container with a spout for easing pouring), fill pop molds up half way; then divide and add blueberries. Fill molds with remaining yogurt mixture all the way to the top, per the mold instructions; gently insert sticks (I used six 1/2-cup "Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds"). Freeze 4 to 6 hours or until completely set. To serve, briefly run each mold under warm tap water, then gently pull them out to remove.

I've been dreaming of these for the past few days. I made them the first time you posted the recipe and not only were they fantastic, they passed the Hubby Test with flying colors! It's way past time to make them again! Yum!

Your tile work is really coming together beautifully!

(Blogger has been acting up a bit for me lately so hope this posts.)

Hi CyberSis,

Got your post! I was hoping to make these earlier in the afternoon but my tile guy is still here. He's trying to finish up today so he doesn't have to come back tomorrow. I might have to wait until tomorrow to have one since it won't have time to freeze all the way. :-)

What a pity it's the middle of winter now in Australia, but I will keep the recipe for summer as they look great!

Hi Sami...too bad. I didn't realize it was winter there! With the heat and humidity here, I could use a little bit of your cold weather though! :-)

Hi Ayla,
I made this recipe but used fresh chopped pineapple pieces instead of blueberries. Had to use up the pineapple. It was delicious! Actually my non wheatfree mother who lives with me really enjoyed them because the flavor reminded her of the creole creamcheese icecream we love so much here in New Orleans! This recipe is definitely a keeper. I'm going to experiment with other ingredients and hopefully keep the creole creamcheese flavor!.

Hi Sylvia,

Pineapple sounds like a GREAT addition/substitute! I've never tried creole ice cream before. So happy you and your Mom enjoyed it and hope you have fun making all sorts of new flavors! Thanks for letting me know you both enjoyed it! :-)
