Peanut butter frozen yogurt has been high atop my list of recipe development ideas for ages. And it’s only taken (almost) 9 years to bring that vision to life. #slowandsteady
I have been a longtime advocate for the endless variations of 5-minute healthy frozen yogurt you see floating around these pages, but protein-packed peanut butter had yet to find its place among the frosty confections (with the exception of a particular pie).
That all changes right here, right now. Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops, it is your time to take center stage! We’re talking about tangy yogurt, peanut butter and just three additional ingredients whisked together into an impossibly light and creamy mix that’s poured into popsicle molds and frozen until solid.
Go for any shape or size when it comes to forming these pops. Don’t own a popsicle mold like my favorite one pictured below? Grab one online, or use small paper (or plastic) cups for easy cleanup.
Once the pops have frozen, wiggle them loose and enjoy them immediately, or jazz things up with a quick dunk in melted dark chocolate (or Magic Shell) and follow it up with a shower of crushed, salted peanuts for a bit of crunch in every bite.

I was wondering, since I have a nut allergy, if I could make this with sunflower butter??….
Hi Ciara – I haven’t that so I can’t say with certainty what the results would be, but my initial thought is that it *should* work. Let me know if you give it a shot!
Instead of making these into pops, could I combine it into a tin like the fruit versions? Maybe add chocolate chips and nuts to the mix?
Hi Meg – I haven’t tried that but it *should* work! My guess is that it will freeze solid but if you remove it for a bit prior to scooping, it’ll soften back up. Let me know if you give it a shot! :)
A must try for sure
I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Would almond milk work in place of the whole milk?
Hi Nicole! That should work! I’m not positive if the texture will be as creamy, but it should work!
I’m really excited to try this recipe! My girls and I are both lactose intolerant and I can only ever get low fat lactose free Greek yogurt and 2% lacrosse free milk. Will it still work? Don’t want to waste all of those ingredients if it’s just not going to work :(.
Did you use Greek yogurt or “regular” yogurt
Hi Colette! Either will work as long as it is full-fat.
For the frozen Peanut butter bars, would dry peanut butter work instead of using regular peanut butter? Thank you.
I’ve never tried that, Dee, so I’m not sure! Let me know if you give it a shot!
I want to make these so badly, but want to know if a milk substitute would work as well as the milk does? I’m thinking coconut milk in a carton not the cannned one.
That should work! I’m not positive if the texture will be as creamy, but it should work!

Love these frozen yogurt pops, Kelly! No doubt, these are on my must-make list this summer! And you’d better believe Magic Shell will be involved! ;)
Thanks so much, Stephanie!
