Lemon Popsicle Recipe

These lemon popsicles are such a treat! Easy to make, cheap, ready in about 5 minutes, without counting the freezing time, of course. And the best of it: one popsicle only has about 80 calories!

And if you are into making popsicles or ice cream this summer, have a look at these Greek Yogurt Popsicles or this No-Churn Ice Cream with strawberries or peanut butter. All so easy to make and so delicious!

What do you need for making lemon pops?

Otherwise, just 3 ingredients:

  • Creamy Greek-style lemon yogurt – I use low-fat.
  • Lemon
  • Honey
  • Optional: a few drops of yellow food coloring. The pops will taste the same (great!) with or without the color.

Alternative sweeteners, everything to taste:

  • Regular sugar
  • Golden syrup
  • Agave syrup
  • Stevia
  • Erythritol
  • Xylitol

Tips

  • You can use plain Greek yogurt to make the lemon popsicles, however, I prefer a creamy lemon yogurt, it adds more flavor.
  • Use as much honey as needed, it depends on the sort of yogurt you are using as well. If the yogurt is plain, you will need more honey, if the yogurt is sweetened, you will need less honey.
  • Make the lemon pops at least one day before you want to serve them, it is best if they have the time to freeze overnight.
  • To release the lemon popsicles from the molds, run the molds under warm water.

Popsicle variations

  • Use other dairy products instead of yogurt. For a richer version, try sour cream or smetana.
  • Vegan alternative: use vegan yogurt and vegan sweetener.
  • Make lime popsicles using the juice of 2-3 limes.
  • For boozy popsicles, add some Limoncello or lemon vodka, to taste (not too much).
