I just plan on basically looking like a popsicle after a few weeks if popsicles were shaped like sexy people. I’m gonna put the fab in fabpopsicle.
I finally bought myself a grown up popsicle mold, which shouldn’t be a thing but it is, because the IKEA ones just weren’t cutting it. I could eat one popsicle in like 10 seconds and then I started losing the pieces and I just said whatever and Thelma and Louised it and used the one click amazon prime option all crazy like.
These pops were the first ones I made and I’m slightly in love with them. I’ve already proposed and they said they’d think about it. So that’s good/not healthy. Originally this recipe was just for frozen yogurt, but it churned almost solid, and didn’t have the consistency I was looking for. Did I eat almost all of it at soft serve stage out of the ice cream maker? Yes. Did I regret it? No, shut up. I wasn’t stoked with scooping it after it froze completely and decided it was made for popsicles. I made another batch, and here we are.
Those four ingredients up there? that’s all of them, nothing else. The tartness of the yogurt was perfect for the lime zest and the graham cracker crumb helped out just enough to make me feel like I was eating a frozen key lime pie. Newsflash: key lime pie and lemon meringue pie are two of my favorite desserts, just in case you wanted to catfish someone with my pictures.
The key to these is the greek yogurt that’s not nonfat. You need the fat in there to help make them a little creamier. It’s just 2%. Treat yo self. I used Fage because it’s actually the only non nonfat Greek yogurt I could find, but feel free to use whatever brand you want.
I seriously can’t get enough of popsicles and how easy they are to both eat and make. There’s definitely going to be a lot more of them around here.

Steve wasn’t crazy about the consistency with the crumbs mixed into the bar, but he also isn’t super in love with graham crackers because he is a fool. If this is the case for you just let the popsicle soften/melt a little then lay one side in the crumbs and return to the freezer or devour it right there. Just devour it right there.
2 c greek yogurt, any fat content, no nonfat
4 graham crackers, crushed (rolling pin or empty beer bottle + ziploc bag filled with broken crackers. go.)
1 T lime zest, from 1 lime*
1/3 c granulated sugar
Mix everything in a bowl until combined and place in popsicle molds*, freeze. boom. done.
*Go ahead and tell me that I didn’t use legit key limes and see what happens.
*The mixture is pretty thick, so use that ziploc bag you crushed the graham crackers in like a pastry bag: fill it up, snip off the corner and pipe it right in there. There might need to be a few taps on the counter with the molds to make sure it goes all the way to the bottom.
