Who doesn’t love a good popsicle or bowl of creamy ice cream on a hot, sticky day?
I certainly do.
My husband has been corrupting me by stocking the freezer with mint chip ice cream and colossal ice cream sandwiches lately.
The other day I had an ice cream sandwich for the first time in several years. And I’m not going to lie to you, it was delicious.
But that 31-year-old metabolism of mine can’t handle much more of those this summer. Which is why I created my own healthy summer treat: Basil Lime Yogurt Popsicles!
Sure, I first created this recipe as a healthier option for those hot summer days when I’m craving ice cream.
But these Basil Lime Yogurt Popsicles turned into so much more than that.
The acidic citrus, creamy Greek yogurt, rich coconut milk, floral honey, and specks of basil turn this popsicle into a refreshing, balanced treat. It is not too sweet, it is pleasantly tart, and it’s a unique addition to your summer frozen dessert repertoire.
Did I mention how easy these Basil Lime Yogurt Popsicles are?
Only five ingredients, all whirled in a blender, and filled into popsicle molds.
What makes these popsicles even easier is the use of Dorot’s frozen herb cubes. Have you guys ever used them? I grab mine at Trader Joe’s, in the freezer section. Dorot makes a ton of frozen herbs: garlic, ginger, basil, cilantro, parsley, dill, chopped chili.
No chopping. No prepping. No clean-up. No mess, no fuss.
I love throwing their frozen ginger into my smoothies, blitzing cilantro in salsa, and I love when my hands don’t smell like garlic afterwards!
The convenient pre-portioned herb cubes are flash-frozen within 90 minutes of harvest. I honestly love using Dorot’s herbs and feel that they taste incredibly fresh and flavorful.

I love the chopped basil in the container. I have never seen that in the store. I will look out for it next time shopping.
These pops sound so easy to make and I would love them. I had no idea all the things you could put in Popsicles.
I seriously don’t know why I never thought of making my own popsicles before. I eat them like crazy and I would love this flavor!
These would be perfect for these hot summer days. I love lime and basil togther.
