You know the awesome thing about popsicles? You’re always in the mood for them. Well, I am anyway. No matter how I’m feeling, a popsicle sounds like it would at least be kind of sort of good. I have not had any appetite today ALL day. Which is about the weirdest thing in the world for me. Generally, if I don’t eat every 2-3 hours, my stomach gets all grumbly and I feel like I might pass out. I’m seriously like a baby who needs non-stop small meals throughout the day. But today? I barely ate a thing, didn’t feel hungry, and couldn’t think of a thing that sounded appetizing. Have I mentioned that is not like me at all? I even went out to dinner for Chels’s birthday and felt meh about everything. I got soup and a salad and didn’t eat much. I think my friends were kind of shocked, as, let’s be honest, I can usually eat a house. But when I got home tonight? A popsicle sounded SO good.

Luckily I had these Fruity Pebbles Popsicles in the freezer. Because I had bought a box of Fruity Pebbles for those delightful doughnuts I made and then was stuck with half a box and nothing to do. And we all know if I ate a Fruity Pebbles breakfast, my stomach would be grumbling about 10 minutes later. But they’re so pretty and I didn’t want to waste them, so I decided they’d look fun against some nice white Greek yogurt.

Though these are made with a seriously sugary cereal, I’m claiming them to be quite healthy. Because they’re made with 0% Greek yogurt and a splash of 1% milk. You’re loading up on protein, calcium, and a little sugary goodness for good measure. Nobody can argue with that one. And if you have kids? They might love you a little bit extra on a day you give them a popsicle with Fruity Pebbles involved. Little will they know how much nutrition they’re actually getting. Muhahaha!

Fruity Pebbles Greek Yogurt Popsicles (makes about 8):
Print this recipe!

  • 1 1/2 C 0% Greek yogurt (I used Chobani and it worked quite well)
  • 3/4 C 1% milk
  • 3/4 C Fruity Pebbles, plus optional 1/4 C for sprinkling

3 ingredients; couldn’t be easier! These take about 7 minutes to make. The only annoying part is waiting for them to freeze. Which, by the way, if I had known the Zoku Quick Pop Maker freezes popsicles in 7 minutes ON YOUR COUNTER, I probably would have gone with that one. I do love me some instant gratification. But patience is a virtue and any time I make a frozen treat, I practice it.

Anyway, in a blender or a Vitamix, blend yogurt and milk until combined.

Then stir in 3/4 C Fruity Pebbles.

I was going to add some sugar into the mix, too, but I figured I’d keep these pops as wholesome as possible. And, I mean, if you poured yourself a bowl of Fruity Pebbles, you wouldn’t very well go adding sugar to that bowl. Would you??

But I did decide to sprinkle some extra Fruity Pebbles into the popsicle molds. This is totally optional as it made for a bit of a fun, but also kind of weird popsicle top.

Now, pour or spoon the yogurt/milk mixture into the molds. I hit the mold on the counter a few times to make the yogurt mixture fall down into the mold as much as possible.

Fit with popsicle sticks for easy eating.

And you’re ready to get freezing. I ended up freezing my popsicles overnight, but a couple hours probably would have been fine.

And you’re ready for a fun little summertime treat. That’s likely also perfectly enjoyable in the winter. I’m a year-round popsicle eater. And am generally colder in the summer anyway because the AC always freezes me half to death.

I absolutely loved the yogurt-taste of these. I was a bit worried they’d be too icy with the milk and yogurt, but they ended up being quite creamy.

Of course, they could have used a tad more sugar, but I also kind of liked the subtle sweetness of the Fruity Pebbles.

Don’t be alarmed; I did not eat the entire bed of Fruity Pebbles these were resting on. Though I was tempted… Very, very tempted.

The bottom line is, these satisfied a craving without really going overboard. Sure, I could have just topped my Greek yogurt with some Fruity Pebbles, but when , when it’s hot outside, sometimes you need dessert in frozen form. And eating yogurt doesn’t sound nearly as fun as eating a popsicle. Am I right?

Especially when nothing else really sounds appetizing. Popsicles to the rescue!

Hopefully my appetite is back in full force tomorrow. Though I must admit, it was kind of nice not having to feed myself every couple hours. There’s something really obnoxious about a loudly grumbling stomach when you’re sitting in quiet office or in a meeting. But still, I love my food and I’d like to enjoy it again, thankyouverymuch. I sometimes imagine what life would be like without a love for food and I do not like it at all.

Is there any type of food that always sounds appetizing to you?

    Yum. I looooove Popsicles. When I was pregnant with either of my daughters I was seriously obsessed with them. Li Christmas liste, at least 2 popsicles a day obsessed. One of those countertop popsicle makers is definitely on my christmas list.
