Sugar Free Blueberry FroYo Ice Lollies | Vegan, GF

Hi guys, as I’m sure you’ve heard me say 3000 times this month, I’m quitting sugar in August. It’s going well so far, but I wanted to experiment with sugar free dessert options, just so I had something I could have if everyone else was having a little something. I’m working on a sugar free apple loaf, keep your eyes out for that, but as my first go, I thought I’d make something simple. I made froyo ice lollies. I know summer is almost over and I’m at least a month late posting this, but this recipe is kid friendly and I’m pretty sure kids like sweet stuff all year. And I do too.  

I was originally going to make frozen smoothie ice lollies, but thought I’d make them slightly creamier and more sorbet/ ice cream/ froyo like. Basically, whatever was more creamy and actually manageable with no sugar.  

You may have seen on Twitter that I was very excited to find a sugar free plain yoghurt that was also vegan. As much as I love the no added sugar mango yoghurt from Alpro, having to have everything mango flavoured, or something that worked well with mango, was getting boring.  

I found that the Alpro Plain doesn’t contain any added sugars and doesn’t actually taste strongly of soy (which a lot of plain dairy free yoghurts do). It’s also a really thick and creamy texture, which works perfectly in this recipe. 

To make them a little sweeter, I added some ripe banana. Of course, if you’re not sugar free, you could add sweetened yoghurt or some syrup to this recipe. I also used almond milk, but I think coconut milk would be better for creaminess. If you’ve been here for a while, you probably know that coconut products break me out. And I have that wedding this weekend, so I’m not risking that this week…  

As with the milk, coconut yoghurt would also make them creamier.

The yoghurt I used can be found here or a cheaper version here. And a sugar free coconut yoghurt is available here.

So, I got my new yoghurt, Amazon primed some Lolly Moulds and started playing with ideas. I opted for these individual lolly moulds. They are on the smaller side, but that’s okay for what we need to achieve here. Just keep in mind, this recipe filled these moulds perfectly, so if you have larger ones you may need to add more.

This recipe is vegan, gluten free, dairy free and can be nut free depending on your choice of milk.  

Prep time: 5 minutes 

Freeze time: At least 4 hours 

Ingredients  

  • ½ cup frozen blueberries  
  • 3tbsp Alpro Plain yoghurt (or alternative yoghurt of choice) 
  • ½ cup dairy free milk (I used almond, but I think coconut would be great in this recipe) 
  • 1 ripe banana  
  • Additional 3tbsp yoghurt  

Method 

  1. Add all ingredients other than the extra 3tbsp yoghurt to a blender and blend until completely smooth.  
  2. Carefully pour your blended smoothie mixture into moulds, filling them approximately ¾ of the way.  
  3. Now add ½ tbsp yoghurt to the top of each mould. This should fill the mould almost to the top. Leave a very small gap (½ cm ish) at the top of the mould as the lollies will expand when they freeze.  
  4. Add the sticks and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.  
  5. When you’re ready, remove a lolly from the tray and run under a hot tap for approximately 15 seconds to release it from the mould.

Enjoy!

    ahaha all my desserts include sugar but i’m planning to go sugar free so this post definitely helps!

    These lolly’s looks so amazing! I love a good ice lolly in the summer and they are so full of sugar, I’m really trying to cut back too. Glad your doing so well! Saving this recipe xx

    I LOVE the gradient on these, it looks so cute and you wouldn’t think that it’s sugar free! Also, I noticed that you used banana to sweeten and I understand that this may be a very stupid question, I’m just uninformed and curious… do fruit syrups (agave etc) have sugar in them? On an additional note, I can’t waut for your sugar free apple loaf recipe! Your recipes lately have really been pushing me to cut sugar out of my life!

      Not stupid at all! They don’t contain refined sugars but are still near enough 100% natural sugar and as a part of my sugar free month I’m trying to do zero added sugars at all. So literally just the natural sugar in the blueberries and milk etc. I hope that made sense! Aw thank you!! Good luck trying to cut some out x

    If I still had Ice Lolly Moulds I would be making this tomorrow! I can’t believe I have never thought of this before. I really do need to eat better and smoothies get boring to drink, I am not a massive fan of thick liquid texture either so I think I would love a smoothie lolly! I bet coconut milk/yogurt would taste AMAZING. I’m so excited to try this, going into town tomorrow going to see if I can find some cheap ice lolly moulds! Thanks for the recipe! xx

    These look so yummy, I wish I had some made right now because I could really eat one. I also love that these are gluten free as three of us in my house have an intolerance to gluten.

    Oh my goodness those look delicious, and so easy to make too! I like how you chose to do a more frozen yogurt kinda thing because I think the creamier, the better haha! I definitely want to try making these sometime 🙂

  8. 24th August 2018 / 9:36 pm

    Ooh, I could actually make these! I have very similar moulds which I brought to make very sugary ice lollies but I’ve been looking for healthier alternatives ever since. I imagine these are so refreshing & tasty and even more enjoyable that you are having a guilt-free treat! Thanks for sharing the recipe Sophie <3 xx

    I love that you’re trying to give up sugar! I’m going to review your posts because any advice you might have, I’m sure I need all I can get. I’m going to have to try this. I’m trying to cut down on my sugar intake because of my major sweet tooth. My boyfriend is a vegan so he will love this! I’m not but M thinking of trying the whole 30 and doing some of those meals as vegan since I tend to like vegan food.

    The Blueberry Froyo Ice Lollies look delicious. I like the idea of the 5 minute preparation time. Just stick in the freezer and wait. I have the ingredients on hand and I can’t wait to try this simple recipe.

    With August almost ending, it’s amazing that you’ve been finding different ways to avoid sugar. You’re one smart person for finding alternatives to sweeten your food up without adding the sugar. I like how the ice lollies take so little time to prep! They look great at the end. I know this would be great for kids on a hot day! Thanks for sharing.

    Ooooh these look so good! I used to make popsicles in these kinds of moulds and found it so fun! I’ll definitely have to try these out when I have some room in the freezer, they look like such a great healthy snack or dessert. Have a lovely time at the wedding!

    I love making ice lollies from scratch it’s so fun!

  15. 26th August 2018 / 1:57 pm

    Ooo these look delicious! These will be a perfect treat for when my niece visits (she absolutely adores Ice cream/ice lollies – it doesn’t have to be summer either!). Fingers crossed for another bit of heat/ late summer sun to enjoy these more with!

    I made something similar with sour cherries two years ago. My daughter loves blueberries, so I think I’ll make some for her. Thanks for the recipe!

  17. 26th August 2018 / 4:52 pm

    I need to try these! Love how they look

  18. 26th August 2018 / 8:05 pm

    Oh man these look gorgeous! I don’t usually have blueberries either so these would be such a nice change up from the usual. I’m a huge sucker for banana too as I’ve mentioned in recent comments. I hope your sugar free month is going well and that you enjoyed the wedding! The apple loaf sounds incredible and I”m really excited to see that post already!

    These ice lollies look really delicious! I love how easy they are to make! I’m pretty sure I have all these ingredients in my house right now so I could literally make these today. I used to love making homemade ice lollies as a kid. Thanks for sharing!

    These look amazing! I wanted to make some frozen yoghurt and fruit lollies but we have a tiny freezer in our fridge that wouldn’t fit any ice lolly mould in!

    I could make these, they sounds delicious. Although I definitely would have to substitute the banana as I can’t stand it! Thankyou for sharing x
