Summer weather is here, and that means, I’m ready to get outside and enjoy the sunshine with my friends! I wanted a refreshing treat that would satisfy my guests and keep them cool while we hang out on the roof, so I came up with these Frozen Lemon Greek Yogurt Pops! These simple, homemade treats are made with 3 basic ingredients: Greek yogurt, lemon, and a sweet swap for sugar – SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener. I had a great time making these pops, and I encourage you to get creative with the different molds out there! I like this one but the design is up to you. Regardless of what you use, these pops are super easy to put together quickly for a party, your kiddos, or yourself as a late afternoon or after dinner snack. I used SPLENDA® Sweetener in mine, so that there is less added sugar. Add that to plain Greek Yogurt and lemon juice, and you’ve got yourself a sweet treat that gives you a little vitamin C, and packs a protein punch!
Not only does the final product taste awesome, it’s also beautiful with the lovely pieces of lemon zest and thin lemon slices showing throughout the white pop. These pops are creamy, with just the right amount of sweet and tart flavor (not to mention they’re a healthy treat that you can feel great about!). Check out my video demo below!

Lemon Greek Yogurt Pops
(Makes 6 Pops)
Juice from 2 lemons
Zest from 3 lemons
2 cups plain whole Greek yogurt
1 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
6 thin slices of lemon
6 pop sticks
1) In a bowl collect the zest and juice from the lemons. Stir in the yogurts.
2) Add SPLENDA® Sweetener and stir well.
3) Using a spoon, carefully transfer the yogurt mixture into each pop mold. Gently tap the molds onto a countertop to sufficiently fill them. Insert a thin slice of lemon into each mold so that it sits at the base. Add the pop sticks and freeze for a minimum of 3 hours.
4) When ready, run the pop mold under warm water for about 20 seconds, and gently pull each pop out.
