  • 8-10 limes
  • 1 cup unsweetened plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup sugar (optional)
  • popsicle sticks (or wooden skewers)


  • Juice 8-10 limes. You'll end up with just under 1 cup lime juice
  • Combine lime juice with 1 cup yogurt, 1 cup water, and 4 Tablespoons honey in a blender
  • Lightly blend the ingredients
  • Pour mixture into a popsicle mold or homemade paleta kit and put into the freezer
  • In an hour, insert popsicle sticks into the mixture
  • After 5-6 hours in the freezer they'll be ready to eat
  • Run some warm water over the mold
  • After letting them rest at room temp for a minute or two you'll be able to slide them out of the mold
  • Store in the freezer in an airtight freezer bag


Using only 4 Tablespoons of honey gives these a mild sweetness. If you want them sweeter you can add 1/4 cup of sugar to the water to create a syrupy base. Heat up 1 cup water in a saucepan and add 1/4 cup of sugar. Cook until the sugar dissolves and after cooled use this water mixture as described above.
