This is where yummy homemade fruit yoghurt popsicles come in. These refreshing treats are the perfect way to cool down and refuel after time spent in the garden. They’re also a healthy and convenient option to have on hand when you’re short on time and a great way to use fruits and herbs from your garden!

The Benefits for Gardeners

Hydration: Gardening can be dehydrating, especially on hot days. Popsicles are a delicious way to replenish fluids and keep yourself cool.

Energy boost: The combination of yogurt, fruit, and granola provides a good source of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. This will give you the energy you need to keep going throughout the day.

Convenience: Snack popsicles are a great option for busy afternoons in the garden. You can make a batch ahead of time and grab one whenever you need a pick-me-up.

Healthy and refreshing: Unlike sugary store-bought popsicles, these popsicles are made with healthy ingredients. They’re a refreshing and guilt-free way to cool down and satisfy your sweet tooth.

Use your homegrown produce: This is a fantastic way to reduce food waste and enjoy the fresh flavors of your garden. Be creative with flavour combinations and experiment with herbs and fruits and get your own signature favourites going. How about mint and strawberries?

Handy Tips

  • You can substitute any type of fruit or granola that you like.
  • For a thicker popsicle, use less milk.
  • Get creative with your toppings! Try adding chopped nuts, seeds, or shredded coconut.
  • Get kids involved, it’s a fun activity to do with children and they get the reward of enjoying their creations.
