While berries of all varieties offer a tremendous amount of nutrition per calorie, raspberries in particular are an incredible source of dietary fibre. In fact, calorie for calorie, these nutrition rock stars are one of the highest fibre foods on the planet!
As raspberry season will be in full force in the coming weeks, I chose to put these blossoming beauties to use in this recipe; but these popsicles would work all summer long using blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, or even cranberries. However, I have to admit, sweet-tart raspberries and smooth white chocolate pair perfectly with tangy yogurt in this specific recipe; because of this, I recommend making the recipe as written first and experimenting with different berry combinations later to change things up.

For maximum visual appeal, I like to layer the ingredients in this recipe (because, ya know, pretty food tastes better). Layering also gives the optimal red and white effect, if you choose to whip up a batch of these crowd pleasers in time for our nations birthday. But if you prefer the flavours and appearance to be melded, check out my tip below.
Highlights of making this recipe:
- These yogurt pops are super easy to make – with only 6 ingredients, and ready to set in just 15 minutes, you’ll have these prepped and waiting in your freezer in no time!
- With essentially zero fuss or mess, these pops are perfect to make on the fly during your standard meal prep routine (for example, while you’re waiting for something to cook in the oven or on the stove).
- You can use your favourite berries to create excitement: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or mix them all!
- Mixing: while I love the look of these layered pops, you may prefer going for the marble effect by barely mixing all the ingredients together before putting them into molds. If you want the fruit yogurt bars to be consistent in flavour from bite to bite, just mix the ingredients completely.
