Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles

I have this trait that’s both positive and negative… it’s this thing where I really want to prove someone wrong. It’s kind of like when someone calls Marty McFly a chicken; he can’t help but retaliate. This trait gets triggered the most when I’m parenting because I have a child who can be quite stubborn at times. His stubbornness comes out a lot when we’re eating. One week he loves broccoli. The next? DON’T EVEN SAY THE WORD (don’t do it!!). Raspberry jam is his favorite jam but will he eat a regular raspberry?? No, sir. Imagine me putting a raspberry on top each of my fingers showing him how fun it is. I did that and he was still not convinced.

This is when my brain locks into MUST PROVE HIM WRONG mode.

Oh yeah? You don’t like raspberries? How about I pack almost two containers of fresh raspberries into some popsicles (his favorite treat) and swirl in some leftover lemon curd for good measure? Let’s see how that goes.

It went something like this.

Him: MOM! These are NOT RASPBERRIES. Why did you say they are when they’re not?!

Me:  They are raspberries. 

Him: NO THEY ARE NOT because I LIKE THEM. Can I have a popsicle for breakfast tomorrow?

We pick our battles, folks.

And we’re off!

Let’s gather our ingredients. If you use a regular yogurt, you might not need to thin it out.

Allllls I had was Greek.

We mash our raspberries with a fork. Proof they’re raspberries, COOPER.

We add a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down… Sorry to get that stuck in your head.

Yogurt base time! Agave syrup goes in. Honey and maple syrup are both suitable substitutions.

Stir it with an old tarnished vintage fork. Just kidding, use you whatever you want.

Your hands are questionable though.

Ahhhhh. There’s the milk I forgot to put in my photo above. GOT MILK? Yes. Yes I do.

Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles // shutterbean

Pour it into the yogurt. Let’s thin it out.

Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles // shutterbean

OK. We’re almost there.

Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles // shutterbean

Take the raspberries and lemon curd and GENTLY/subtly stir them both into the yogurt.

We want swirls. It’s like marbling! It kinda looks like there’s a mermaid tail hanging off the side.

What’s that all about?

Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles // shutterbean

Spoon/pour it into your popsicle molds. And FREEZE.

If you’re using these popsicle molds, you will want to put the sticks in after about 35 minutes.

DONE DID. Takes about 4-5 hours and you’re golden.

Berry beauts!

Tart, tangy, sweet, seedy, LEMONY goodness. You’re gonna love that lemon curd swirl!

Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles // shutterbean

And yes, THOSE ARE RASPBERRIES.

You still reading??! Cool. You made it to the part where I tell you it’s POPSICLE WEEK. My friend Billy of Wit & Vinegar spearheaded POPSICLE WEEK 2014 (with a bedazzled popsicle stick).  ”What’s Popsicle week?”  Thirty-seven of bloggers from all around the world are joining in the fun and sharing a popsicle recipe this week.  Last year I made these Cantaloupe Campari Pops!  So, bust out your popsicle molds, make some space in your freezer and look at this animated gif.

Raspberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles

makes 6 popsicles

  • 1  3/4  cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1  1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon curd

In a medium bowl, mash the raspberries with a fork. Stir in sugar and set mixture aside.  In a large measuring cup with spout, mix yogurt with agave syrup until well combined. Add milk into yogurt mixture to thin out. Gently swirl in raspberries and lemon curd. You’ll want to have some beautiful raspberry lemon swirls in your popsicles so be careful not to over-mix.  Transfer mixture to popsicle molds, filling up 3/4 full. Freeze for 35 minutes, add popsicle sticks and freeze until popsicles are frozen, about 4-5 hours.

    I want all th popsicles! The cantaloupe and Campari ones sound amazing, though could I really go past lemon curd and raspberries?! Probably not. Hazzah to having Popsicle moulds!! Happy Popsicle week :)

    Hilarious! I’m glad you were able to prove him wrong. I just ordered this popsicle mold per your suggestion and cannot wait to take it for a spin :)

  • June 25, 2014

    I am all about homemade popsicles this summer! I just ordered a popsicle mold the other week and tried out my first batch. These are definitely next on my list! :-)

  • My kids seem to love whatever I put in the form of a popsicle! These look like they’d be grown up approved, too. Love.

      Cooper does too :)

  • Woohoo for popsicle week! I’m making coconut, salted caramel & dark chocolate pops since I’m a chocoholic, but these look amazing! So funny about Cooper… my brother (he’s 13 though!) won’t touch pecans or walnuts in anything except pecan brownies. Craziness!

    Laughed so hard at this post! Hilarious and wonderful as always.

  • June 25, 2014

    Hilarious!!! Made me laugh right out loud! “We pick our battles folks..” – I’m still laughing! I can relate…Lord keep me patient lol. These look solo good! I will be trying :) Good job getting him to like raspberries ;)

  • June 25, 2014

    I love your writing! I was cracking up the entire time. Cooper sounds adorable (congrats on getting a picky kid to eat fruits though!!). Lemon curd is my favorite and raspberries are up there too. Gotta try, thanks for sharing :)

    Delicious and such a funny post! Your little man is in for a treat – raspberries and all. Too cute!

    Do you use full fat greek yogurt? I made some popsicles with nonfat because it was what I had on hand and the texture was suuuuuper weird.

    • Tracy
      June 25, 2014

      I used fat free in this instance and it worked out fine. It’s really all about the raspberries!

  • June 25, 2014

    Holy crap these look good. So good. Way to be a sneaky mom.
    My husband can’t do dairy, but I’m thinking that this might be one of the few times that coconut milk yogurt would actually be a good sub. It’s normally way too sweet for savory dishes, but I bet this would be delicious! You win.

  • June 25, 2014

    I didn’t even know it was popsicle week and I made popsicles yesterday!! I must have sensed the popsicle energy around the world! haha! These ones look SO YUMMY!

    I live for proving certain people in my life wrong (my husband, my father-in-law, my brothers-in-law, my brother…mostly the dudes)! I mean, they’re all SO SURE of everything…it’s so triumphant. I especially love it when it’s food related, like these pops! They look amazing and I love that there’s a lemon curd swirl in there, SWOON.

      June 25, 2014

      I always have IMDB pulled up on my phone for this case…..

  • June 25, 2014

    love these pops tracy! lemons and raspberries are total besties, in my books :)

  • June 25, 2014

    Love this combo! Happy popsicleweek!!

    June 25, 2014

    I love your recipes, but I notice you use agave syrup a lot (I always substitute!). Not sure if you know it’s not quite what it seems from a health perspective http://www.foodrenegade.com/agave-nectar-good-or-bad/

    • Tracy
      June 25, 2014

      Yeah, I understand that it’s considered “bad.” I bought a bunch of it at Costco awhile ago and am working my way through it.

  • June 25, 2014

    Oh my, these look so good. Way to get Cooper on the raspberry train and make a delicious popsicle at the same time. The lemon curd swirl is a total pro move.

  • ooooh i love the look of these tracy and i heart the idea of a lemon curd swirl!!! xo

  • June 25, 2014

    Hahah yeah, totally love proving people wrong. Especially when it’s my dad or husband. But then, my dad thinks he knows which direction a street goes when it’s the street I LIVE ON.

    These popsicles look delicious, by the way.

  • June 25, 2014

    Yummo! I LOVE raspberries… kids are so funny sometimes! When I was about 7, I was eating blueberries (which I then adored) with my cousin, and she broke one open to show me the mushy, green inside. I was so freaked out I wouldn’t eat ANY blueberries for 4 years… weird.

    BTW Tracy, I put up a video on my YouTube channel that I thought you might be interested in- it’s 3 recipes for easy/healthy/quick breakfasts for summer. Just thought I’d let you know (read: it would mean the world to me if you checked it out). Here’s the link if you’re interested!

  • These are just GORGEOUS and one of my favorite flavor combos! I’m loving all of the creativity for Popsicle Week. Just so much fun!

  • It’s funny, isn’t it, when it’s someone you love you’re trying to prove wrong? I do it all the time. & food is the best way to do it because it’s like “haha sucker” combined with deliciousness, so it’s like you both win. These look so good, I need to get over my fear of the popsicles not coming out of the mould easily and just do it! x

  • What a perfect treat for a hot day. Well, maybe a warm day. Hot maybe a little messy ;) This flavor combo sounds so mouth watering. Pinned!!

    Omg I so get it… my stepson is exactly the same way! Except I usually just don’t tell him I’ve included a dreaded ingredient until he’s eaten and loved it a few times, just to seal the deal. And these look fabulous!

    • Tracy
      June 26, 2014

      Hahaha. I do that to my husband too :)

  • Jenna
    June 26, 2014

    It’s kind of like you made the raspberries into (cold) raspberry jam (which Cooper likes) though… I too have the gene where I like proving people wrong (can you tell?) haha.

    • Jenna
      June 26, 2014

      But seriously, these look amazing & I’m going to make them this weekend even though it’s winter here in Sydney & I’ll have to use frozen raspberries. YUM!

  • June 26, 2014

    I didn’t have raspberries or lemon curd, but I had plenty of strawberries! I used a little lemonade instead of milk and some fresh basil. Wow – so good! Next time, I’m adding tequila.

    • Tracy
      June 27, 2014

      Way to improvise!!!

  • June 28, 2014

    These look awesome! My kind of dessert!

  • June 29, 2014

    These are lip smacking good!

    • Tracy
      June 29, 2014

      Thank you!

  • June 29, 2014

    This looks sooooo good tracy! I totally want to make these!

  • These sound amazing, especially the whole lemon curd part :))
