Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops

/// May 1st, 2015

Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops Super easy AND healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops made with only 4 ingredients! I have a feeling you’ll be making these all Summer long 😉

Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops I have a major weakness for frozen desserts. Ice cream, milkshakes, margaritas – you name it; I  ♡♡♡ it! But my favorite of all favorites? FUDGE POPS. <——- They are like Summer on a stick! And once the warm weather rolls in, I want them on the daily.

Question: What’s your favorite Summertime treat?

Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops Alright! Let’s jump into the delicious recipe details head first.

This recipe is my take on the classic fudge pop. I’ve stripped the ingredient list down to include just 4 basic products: Greek yogurt, semi-sweet chocolate, milk, and vanilla. SO simple, right? For the Greek yogurt I do recommend using full-fat, but reduced fat and fat-free Greek yogurt may be used if you don’t mind a slightly less creamy pop.

For the milk anything from cow’s milk to your favorite non-dairy milk beverage will work. I love (LOVE LOVE LOVE) using chocolate almond milk in this recipe, and if you don’t have a nut allergy, highly recommend you give it a try! My second favorite milk option is using whole cow’s milk, which gives these pops an extremely creamy texture.

For the chocolate I recommend using your favorite brand of semi-sweet chocolate chips. The chocolate flavor really shines through in these pops, so using good chocolate – or at least a chocolate you know you enjoy – is a must. I always use Ghirardelli Brand Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips in these pops, which are easily found in most grocery stores and online.

Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops For this recipe you’ll also need a popsicle mold and popsicle sticks.

Healthy Greek Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Pops Making this recipe is also seriously simple! You’ll melt your chocolate in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stir in your milk and bring to the gentlest simmer, then remove the mixture from heat and cool for a few minutes. Once cooled, stir in your Greek yogurt and vanilla, run this mixture through a sieve, and pour it into your Popsicle molds. This takes like 8 minutes total!

Pro Popsicle Making Tip: Freeze your pops for about 1 hour before inserting the Popsicle sticks. Semi-freezing the fudge pops first helps ensure you won’t push the stick in too deep.

Freeze these babies for a few hours before digging in! If you’re new to Popsicle making, this is a wonderful recipe to start with. The ingredient list is short, the method is easy, and the results are magnificent. You got this!

    I bought the molds for the popsicles. Do you need to wait an hour to add the top/stick or can it be done right away?

      Hi Elaine. Wait an hour (or even just 45 minutes) then add in the stick. If you purchased the same molds as I have, you can put the top on (it has slits) then just slide in the sticks later.

    I am curious what the purpose of putting the mixture through the sieve is? I only ask because I don’t have one and would love to make these!

    So excited to give these a try! Love the healthier option! I was wondering if you could substitute banana for the chocolate? They used to sell both the banana and chocolate fudge pops in a pack when I was growing up. And now I can’t find the banana fudge pops anywhere!

      Hi Lindsey. I’ve never tried subbing banana for chocolate so I have no idea if it would work or not. If you try, I think pureeing the banana first would be a good idea :)

    I made these with Hershey’s chocolate milk and didn’t use a sieve. It left teeny tiny bits of chocolate in it and I loved that! I had Popsicle sticks but no molds so I used small glasses. Oh my God these were good. I can’t wait to make them for my kids when they come home. I’m pinning this one!! Thank you!

    I am so glad I found this recipe yesterday. So hot down in Sydney, Australia and this is the perfect treat! Made it with 70% dark chocolate and they are so fudgy and amazing without being too sweet! Thank you so much :)
