About these Yogurt Tubes
Picture this: It’s 11:40AM the bell rings and your third grade class rushes to the lunch room, everyone whips open their school lunch boxes and 4 out of 5 kids have a Gogurt in there. Why? Because they’re great for traveling and something about squeezable yogurt is just so dang enjoyable.
Even now I’m somewhat obsessed with store-bought yogurt tubes, but truth be told they’re loaded with sugar and not so healthy additives like artificial sources of flavor. Good news: enter the homemade Strawberry yogurt tubes.
They’re made with REAL fruit and just a few other simple ingredients like almond milk, vanilla, and honey to sweeten things up a bit. I frozen mine too, making them a delicious summer treat that kids (and adults alike) love to enjoy on a hot day. These yogurt pouches are healthy and high in protein, making them a fun snack you feel good about eating and serving, too.
- Fresh Strawberries - Fresh work better than frozen. If you use frozen fruit, the yogurt pops get slightly icy.
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt - I opt for nonfat Greek yogurt with 0g of added sugar.
- Unsweetened Almond Milk - Adding a bit ensures a creamy texture. Whole milk is an option, too for extra Vitamin D and a richer yogurt pack.
- Honey and Vanilla Extract - Both optional. You could also use maple syrup instead of honey.
See the recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.
Substitutions and Variations
- Fruit - Try other pureed fruit in these yogurt popsicles like blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. Banana or pineapples would also be delicious. Make a few different versions to stock up on a variety of flavors.
- Yogurt - You can use any flavor or type of yogurt. TTry a another flavored yogurt, plain yogurt or plant-based yogurt if your don't do dairy products.
- Extract - These would also be amazing with almond extract. Maple extract or orange extract I think could be tasty, too!
- Add ins - Stir in some chocolate chips or chocolate syrup for a yogurt tube that more closely mimics ice cream.
How to Make This Recipe
1. In a food processor, pulse fresh strawberries until they’re 80% blended.
2. Add in the yogurt, almond milk, extract, and honey. Pulse again until everything is blended together.
3. Use a funnel and carefully pour the strawberry yogurt mixture into each plastic sleeve.
4. Place the sealed yogurt tubes on a baking sheet. Freeze for 3-6 hours or until frozen solid. Allow the yogurt tubes to thaw for 5-10 minutes before enjoying the delicious treats (the outside gets slightly softer and delicious to eat!)
- I highly recommend using fresh fruit. I’ve tested frozen fruit too and it makes the pops slightly more icy.
- Since we are blending it up, this is a great recipe for fruit that it's on its last leg. A great way to reduce food waste!
- Do not try to fill the single serving tubes without a funnel. You will have a yogurt mess. Also be sure to seal them tightly to avoid freezer burn.
- You can throw these in your kids' school lunches frozen and then they'll thaw but still be nice and chilled above room temperature by the time they eat them. The frozen yogurt tube will also serve as a temporary ice pack to the rest of lunch.
Store your homemade yogurt tubes in the freezer for up to three months. Double or triple the recipe if you/your kids really love these! If you decide not to freeze them, the shelf life is whatever the yogurt containers expiration date says.
Absolutely! The only required ingredients are yogurt and fruit. You could skip everything else. Just TWO ingredients compared to the many many ingredients you'd find in store-bought brands.
Citrus fruit like oranges or grapefruit won’t work great in these yogurt tubes. I also would avoid anything with too high of water content like watermelon, cantaloupe, or apples.
I found these popsicle sleeves on Amazon and they even came with a nice little funnel to fill them. I’ve also seen them sold at Target and Meijer in the summertime in the seasonal sections.
