Healthy Granola Yogurt Popsicles (gluten-free, vegan & refined sugar-free)

Healthy Granola Yogurt Popsicles (gluten-free, vegan & refined sugar-free)

Yogurt, agave, coconut milk, granola and fruit! That’s all you need to make these simple and delicious vegan yogurt popsicles. These popsicles are super versatile and be made to fit most dietary needs and preferences.

Turn your classic smoothie bowl into easily portable popsicle for a yummy breakfast on the go. These popsicles are the perfect summertime treat and can be customized to fit your dietary needs and flavor preferences.


A few things you will need before you get started…

Popsicle molds. There’s no way around this one. Popsicle molds are a must. The good news is that you can find them for fairly cheap. I actually bought mine at a thrift store (brand new in the box!) and I’ve even seen some smaller ones at dollar stores. Of course, you can find them Target and on Amazon but if you aren’t looking to spend much, check second hand stores first!

Popsicle sticks. I’ve seen lots of popsicles on Pinterest using straws and the first time I made my own popsicles I tried making them with a cute and colorful straw–bad idea! The straws get soggy and bend. I do not recommend using a straw in place of a popsicle stick. An alternative that does work: spoons, knives or even forks! 

Ingredients (obviously). I wanted to throw this one in here even though it’s so obvious. If you don’t have the exact ingredients that I used, that’s okay. These popsicles are easily adaptable to different brands and flavors. You can use any granola brand you have on hand (doesn’t have to be gluten-free that’s just my preference). Same goes for the yogurt, sweetener and milk. Use whatever kind of yogurt you prefer and if you want to use goats milk–go for it! 

Okay, you have your molds, sticks and ingredients–you are ready to get started. 🙂

Happy Hump Day guys! We are half way to Friday so I thought I would make some extra clustery granola to help get through the week—chocolate flavored of course! I’ll eat granola in just about any flavor form but my favorite way to eat crunchy oats is when they are covered in chocolate, infused protein and high in fiber! What more can you possibly want?
