Berry Yogurt Popsicles (Dairy-Free & Protein Packed)

June 28, 2023

What if I said you could have popsicles for breakfast? It’s a childhood dream come true, right? 

But I’m not talking about the popsicles you find in the grocery stores, filled with sugar, artificial dyes, and chemical flavoring. I’m talking about creamy, delicious dairy-free berry popsicles boosted with collagen protein

These Berry Yogurt Popsicles are made with just three ingredients, but packed with protein and antioxidants to start your day, cool off in the midday summer sun, or enjoy as a refreshing dessert.

7 Health Benefits of Berries

Berries may be small, but they pack a powerful nutritional punch.

1. Loaded With Antioxidants

Berries are a great source of antioxidants, such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and resveratrol. In fact, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries have the highest antioxidant activity of commonly consumed fruits, next to pomegranates (1).

Antioxidants help fight free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that cause oxidative stress and damage your cells (2). In addition to protecting your cells, these antioxidants may reduce your risk of cancer, inflammation, neurodegeneration, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases (3).

2. Reduces Inflammation

Due to the antioxidants, berries have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation is believed to contribute to conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity (4). Studies suggest that the antioxidants in berries may help lower inflammatory markers (5, 6).

3. Improves Wrinkles

Berries may help reduce skin wrinkling, as their antioxidants help control free radicals, one of the leading causes of skin damage that contributes to aging (7).

Research suggests that the ellagic acid in berries may protect skin by blocking the production of enzymes that break down collagen in sun-damaged skin (8, 9, 10).

4. Reduces Blood Sugar

Studies suggest that berries may protect your cells from high blood sugar levels, help increase insulin sensitivity, and reduce blood sugar and insulin response to high-carb meals (11, 12,).

5. Lowers Cholesterol

Strawberries and black raspberries have been shown to help lower cholesterol in people who are obese or have metabolic syndrome (13, 14, 15) Berries may help prevent LDL cholesterol from becoming oxidized or damaged, which is believed to be a major risk factor for heart disease (16, 17, 18).

In addition to lowering cholesterol, berries provide other benefits for heart health, including improving the function of your arteries.

6. Great Source of Fiber

Berries are a great source of fiber, including soluble fiber. Consuming soluble fiber slows down the movement of food through your digestive tract, leading to reduced hunger and increased feelings of fullness. 

The increased fiber may decrease your calorie intake and make weight management easier (19, 20).

7. Low in Carbohydrates

They’re also lower in carbohydrates than other fruits. A low-carbohydrate diet may help people lose weight more quickly than a low-fat diet—and may help them maintain that weight loss (21).
