Makes 6 (1/3-cup size) popsicles (serving size: 1 popsicle)

Fresh strawberries, creamy yogurt, and the faintest scent of rose swirl together in this sophisticated popsicle. You can use any mold you like for these popsicles, but you'll get a different number of pops depending on the mold size.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. rosewater (optional)

How to Make It

  1. In a glass measuring cup, combine sugar with 1/4 cup water. Microwave until simmering, then stir until sugar dissolves. Put measuring cup in a bowl of ice and cold water and chill syrup until cold, about 10 minutes.

  2. In a bowl, whisk 3 tbsp. syrup with the yogurt. Spoon into 6 (1/3 cup) popsicle molds*, filling each about halfway.

  3. Put strawberries in a food processor. Pour in 3 to 4 tbsp. of remaining syrup and the rosewater (if using). Process until very smooth.

  4. Pour strawberry purée on top of yogurt in molds. Freeze until slushy, about 1 hour (don't insert sticks yet).

  5. Run a thin knife down and around inside edge of molds to create a blizzardlike effect. Insert sticks and freeze until solid, at least 5 more hours.

  6. To unmold popsicles, either let sit at room temperature 5 minutes or run molds under warm water 10 to 15 seconds.

  7. *We used Koji Ice popsicle molds ($13/set of 6;

  8. Make ahead: Up to 2 weeks, frozen.
