For about 40 calories you can enjoy these cool and creamy Greek Yogurt Orange Pineapple Creamsicles that are bursting with tropical citrus flavor! And with no added sugar, the homemade popsicles are healthy enough to eat for breakfast, snack or dessert!
It’s no secret that my boys and I are LOVING frozen pops these days. Not surprisingly, the hot and humid Virginia summer weather that makes me crave COLD treats (even more than usual)!
The good news is that these homemade Creamsicles require only a handful of basic ingredients and a few minutes of your time. There’s no need to spend money on the store-bought versions that are loaded with artificial colors, flavors, and SUGAR!
I love the pops when they’re sweetened only with fruit. It’s basically like a frozen smoothie on a stick — fruit and yogurt! But if you have kiddos who are looking for more of a dessert, you might try adding a bit of natural sweetener like honey to the mix. You can control the amount of sugar and I guarantee that they’ll still be healthier than any other frozen desserts that you might pick up.
These are great mid-afternoon snacks when you want to cool off with something light but you don’t want to fill up before dinner…and they’re naturally a great ending to a summer meal. Creamy, dreamy, and oh-so-citrusy!

Greek Yogurt Orange Pineapple Creamsicles
- 1 ½ cups diced fresh or frozen pineapple
- Zest from 1 orange
- 1 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
- 1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Optional: 2-4 tablespoons honey for a sweeter pop
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
Divide mixture among 8-10 popsicle molds. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or until frozen and ready to eat!
*To make the pops easy to slide out of the molds, just run the outside of the pop under warm water for about 30 seconds. It should slide right out!
