These Fruity Pebbles Popsicles are made with Greek Yogurt and packed with brightly colored crunchy cereal for the perfect summertime treat.
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 the best idea ever.
I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately and haven't had much of an appetite. Except for popsicles. Luckily I currently have these Fruity Pebbles Popsicles in my 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 with them. And we all know if I ate a sugary bowl of Fruity Pebbles for 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.
Fruity Pebbles Greek Yogurt Popsicles Recipe
Though these Fruity Pebbles popsicles are made with a seriously sugary cereal, I'm claiming them to be quite healthy. Because they're Greek yogurt popsicles 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 any day you give them a popsicle with Fruity Pebbles involved.
Little will they know how much nutrition they're actually getting. Muhahaha!
This recipe has 3 ingredients and take about 7 minutes to make, so they couldn't be easier!
The only annoying part is waiting for them to freeze. But patience is a virtue and any time I make a frozen treat, I practice it.
All you need to do is blend the yogurt and milk in a blender and then combine ¾ cup Fruity Pebbles. Add remaining ¼ cup Fruity Pebbles to the bottoms of your popsicles molds and then fill them up with the Greek yogurt mixture.
Fit with popsicle sticks for easy eating.
And then wait while those Greek yogurt popsicles freeze. YAWN. This is the worst part because they should really stay in the freezer for about 6 hours.
But then it's finally time 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 Fruity Pebbles Popsicles. 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 in these popsicles.
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 Fruity Pebbles popsicles satisfied a craving without really going overboard. Sure, I could have just topped my Greek yogurt with some Fruity Pebbles, but 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. Fruity Pebbles popsicles to the rescue!
Hopefully my appetite is back in full force tomorrow. Though I must admit, it is 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.
Is there any type of food that always sounds appetizing to you?

I absolutely love this idea! I think I'd try it with Cap'n Crunch though, I can never have enough Cap'n Crunch.
Sometimes your body just wants what it wants and nothing else will do! I can definitely see why it wanted these popsicles. So fun!!
i think you and i have the same love for fruitty pebbles. 🙂
these are so pretty and creative!! I need to get Popsicle molds!
Oh man these look awesome! I just ran out on my lunch break and got everything to make these tonight. I also picked up some Fruit Loops to try those in them too. Thanks for the post!

These are awesome - they're like a childhood + adulthood breakfast in one!
These are so fun! I love Greek yogurt but have never frozen it.
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.

Not having your appetite is the worst - childhood comfort foods to the rescue! I need to get one of these popsicle contraptions.
These are ridiculous! In a very good way. So much fun!
My kids would LOVE these tasty treats.

These are so fun and colorful!
sarah k. @ the pajama chef says
good idea! too bad my popsicle molds don't like yogurt pops. they're really difficult to get out & the sticks just slide out on their own.... maybe one day i'll invest in a fancy mold. 🙂
This idea blows my mind. So simple, yet sweet AND clever. Great photos of the popsicles on the fruity pebbles too.
Gia Grossman says
Easy and beautiful? I'm a fan! Not to mention the kids won't know it's secretly healthy 😉
Leah | So, How's It Taste? says
I love this idea of Fruity Pebbles in a Popsicle. I ate that cereal so much as a kid. One food I'm always in the mood for is cheese. I can put a serious hurt on a block of good cheese...oh, and chocolate!
What a fun post. I have a crew who would love these. I hope all is well Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary
Yes, I can't resist popsicles too and yours are so pretty and quite healthy too!

I love the color splash.
Pam Greer says
The perfect use for your leftover fruity pebbles!! What a great way to add a healthy twist to a sugary cereal!

My kids are going to FLIP when I make these! They look amazing!
Hi, I have used the suggested coconut cream and followed the steps…….it’s still so runny ?
Hi! I'm not sure what you mean by coconut cream? This recipe has 3 ingredients- Greek yogurt, 1% milk, and Fruity Pebbles... It should have no problem freezing!
Has anyone tried without milk maybe with almond milk ?
