Rainbow Yogurt Popsicle Party Treats

I’m excited to share some adorable new Rainbow Confetti Popsicle Party Treats that I made with the new Wilton DIY-Lish Lollipop Candy-Making Kit. Whether you’re hosting a birthday party or looking for something fun to do with kids this summer, this no-bake recipe is the cutest sweet treat!

Chill out this summer and balance a homemade popsicle lollipop with healthy Greek yogurt topped with rainbow sprinkles. This simple recipe looks adorable on a popsicle party table and since there’s no baking required, it’s also fun for kids to whip up on their own.

Popsicles are the cutest, so when I heard that Wilton made a Lollipop Candy-Making Kit that looks like popsicles, we had to try it! This fun kit includes a popsicle-shaped mold, Candy Melts candy, rainbow sprinkles and all the tools you need to melt, mold and decorate.

Easy Popsicle Lollipops

You really can’t mess these cute lollipops up! The Wilton kit includes enough items to make 12 lollipops. I think ours turned out really cute.

This food craft took us about 30 minutes total. The melted candy dries fast, so popsicles are done quickly. This is a great kit to help bring out the creative side in you!

Greek Yogurt Confetti Treats

There’s nothing more fun than rainbow sprinkles! I used the leftover rainbow jimmies from the kit as a topping for the Greek yogurt. I thought about making ice cream sundaes, but Greek yogurt has such great health benefits and less sugar, so I choose to go the healthier route instead.

What is the difference Greek yogurt and regular yogurt?

Greek yogurt is made by straining out the extra whey in regular yogurt. It makes the yogurt thicker, creamier and tangier. Plain Greek yogurt has less sugar and more protein than regular yogurt as well.

  • 16 oz (2 cups) cold plain Greek yogurt (I think full fat tastes best)
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

After grating the cucumber, squeeze as much water out as you can. Use your hand, or add the cucumber to a cheesecloth and squeeze. When you are done removing as much water from the cucumber, add it to the bowl.

Healthy Yogurt Mix-In Ideas

Healthy snacking can get so BORING. My snack staple is yogurt and to keep myself from getting burnt out, I reach for a few of my favorite healthy yogurt mix-in’s.

In my experience, healthy snacking is HUGE part of healthy eating. If I skip my morning snack, I will be the first person in line in a drive through and I will be ordering ALL the fries. Throw in a milkshake for good measure.

Anyone that has had to put in some serious effort to lose weight (like myself) or to maintain their weight (also me) knows that variety is intimidating. Once you figure out how build your daily meal plan in a way that satisfies, nourishes, and achieves your health and fitness goals, it’s really hard to stray from those meal and snack staples.

But everyone reaches a point when they think, “OMG. If I see another string cheese, I’m going to lose it.”

So figuring out how to dress up your nutritional staples becomes the name of the game.

Especially during the holiday season when there is so much delicious food lurking around every corner. How can you pass up that pumpkin chocolate chip cookie in favor of the same snack you’ve been eating for the last six months, every single day at 10:00 A.M.?

You mix it up.

Yogurt is my daily staple. It’s good for your immune system and high in protein. (I stock up at Walmart once a week.)

But I need something that I can CHEW. So here are just a few of my favorite healthy yogurt mix-in ideas, paired with my favorite Yoplait® Greek 100 combos!

Freeze-dried strawberries, hemp hearts, granola, and coconut Yoplait® Greek 100.

A few notes here…

All of these healthy yogurt mix-in’s are fridge and pantry staples. I use them in baking, smoothies, oatmeal, salads, and DIY snack mixes. My point, is that you don’t need to run out and buy all of this at once. Take a look in your pantry and see what dried fruit, nuts, and granola or cereal you’ve already got.

Chia seeds (or “cheetah seeds” as my son calls them) are available in most grocery stores now and are great in pancakes, smoothies, and oatmeal. A 12 oz bag will last you quite awhile, even if 3 hungry people are adding it to their yogurt every day.
