Healthy Yogurt Protein Popsicles
The idea to make those popsicles came last summer, when I was browsing in the supermarket looking for some ice cream, that is still and ice, but with lower carbs and more healthy ingredients in it.
Since we do not have as many choices of Keto Treats to buy, like the US has, I was surprised to find Skyr Popsicle.
Have read the ingredients and Nutrition and decided to give it a try.
To my surprise, the slight tanginess coming from Icelandic Skyr Yogurt made me fall in love immediately with this Protein Enriched treat.
Of course, I had to do it homemade and fully sugar-free for all of you.
Is there a Healthy Popsicle?
It is so easy now for me to answer this question.
Big yes, to a Healthy Popsicles.
Yes, they exist and the best part, you can make them at home. Just follow our recipe and enjoy.
Icelandic Skyr Yogurt
A few years ago, I didn’t even know Skyr Existed.
Skyr is a dairy product coming directly from the Island. Filled with cultured probiotics, this yogurt with a tangy flavor has got a similar consistency to Greek Yogurt, but with fewer carbohydrates and more protein.
100g of this goddess contains a whopping 15 g of Natural Protein.
Is this for real?
Exactly what we are looking for.
Now you know what type of yogurt we should use more often.
Skyr contains active live cultures, helping us to maintain our digestions. It is lower in fats as Skyr uses skimmed milk.
Extra rich in probiotic cultures, bacterias Streptococcus Thermophilius and Lactobacillus are a big part, while the fermentation of Skyr is implemented.
Skyr contains more protein, which keeps you full for longer.
The additional amount of milk needed to produce Skyr compared to Yogurt results in a much more nutrient-dense product.
Compared to Greek Yogurt, the consistency of Skyr is much creamier and thicker, which is just what we need for our Low Carb cooking and baking.
Having Skyr higher in Natural Protein and lower in sugar, makes it much healthier for our lifestyle as one would have thought.

STEP BY STEP OF MAKING THE BEST KETO SKYR POPSICLES
First Step: Ingredients
Prepare all of the ingredients.
With regards to the sweetener, the powdered version works the best as it melts in without feeling tiny grains.
If you do not have one on hand at home, powder it inside your Magic Bullet, Blender, or Coffee Grinder.
Heavy Cream is best to use directly from the fridge to get that extra fluffiness.
Second Step: Heavy Cream and Sweetener
Into your glass, add heavy cream together with Powdered sweetener, and whisk until stiff peak forms.
Third Step: Whisk All
Using a glass bowl or the one available, whisk both the Heavy Cream and Skyr Yogurt together until fully combined.
Fourth Step: Fill and Freeze
Fill Popsicle Mixture into your preferred Ice Cream Popsicle Molds.
Place the wooden sticks into each and gently bang against the surface to get rid of all the bubbles that might have formed.
If needed, add a bit more mixture in, level it, and place it into the freezer for 4-6 hours, best overnight.
Fifth Step: Prepare Dipping Chocolate
If you have chosen to cover those popsicles with chocolate coating, prepare your double boiler.
Add Sugar-Free Chocolate cut into smaller pieces, coconut oil, and melt.
Swirl regularly until all incorporated.
Let it cool to room temperature but still liquid.
Sixth Step: Dip
Take out your popsicles from the freezer and pour chocolate dipping sauce into a tall glass wide enough to fit your popsicles in.
One by one, dip your popsicle in and hold for a few seconds.
You will realize the chocolate will harden into the magic shell right in front of your eyes in seconds.
Tips and Tricks
- Nutritional Values – are for Skyr popsicles only. As Chocolate coating is options, I have not added it in
- Sweetener – if you do not have powdered sweetener on hand, run it through Magic Bullet or Coffee Grinder.
- Dipping Chocolate – Pick from either Dark Chocolate or White Chocolate for the magic shell
- Serving – depending on which ice cream popsicle mold you choose, you can get either 6 regular or 10 kid-friendly pieces
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How Long Do You Need to Freeze popsicles?
Depending on the size of the popsicle mold you are using, your Popsicles should be fully frozen after approximately 4-6 hours.
I do prefer them kept in the freezer overnight, especially if I am planning to still dip them into the chocolate Magic Shell.
How to get popsicles out of the mold?
It is not always the easiest to get your frozen popsicles out of the mold.
The best and easiest way is to let the outside of frozen popsicle mold run through warm water for a few seconds.
Subsequently, try pulling your popsicle holding the wooden stick and you will feel it when the ice is released.
If not, run it with warm water a few seconds more and try again.
How to store protein popsicles?
To store any Ice Popsicles you have few choices.
- You can keep them in the mold if you are not in the need to use them again.
- Take all of the popsicles out of the mold and store them in the air-tight container stuck on top of each other.
- Take each popsicle out of the mold, cover them with Cling Film and store them in your freezer.
