Promise me you won’t think I’m weird, or like a big food dummy, but honestly? I never even heard of that strawberry pretzel salad thing until like a year or two ago. I do not know how I made it through (ahem) thirty-mumble-mumble years without this ever crossing my radar. Especially considering food is my life. For reals. Like, sometimes I feel like it’s all I think about.
And, when I first started seeing it on Pinterest and stuff I thought it sounded kinda gross. I mean, sweet cream cheese and strawberries, yes. But pretzels? Not so sure.
So I’m fiddling around with this idea to do a strawberry yogurt popsicles thing, and I knew it needed a little something for crunch. At first I was thinking shortbread cookies (which would probably also be pretty rockin’), but then I spotted the pretzels in my cupboard and decided to just go for it!
I’m so glad I did, because, dude. I should never have doubted strawberry pretzel salad. Strawberry pretzel salad was right all along.
If you like pretzels + ice cream, you will love this sweet/salty/creamy frozen treat. It’s just so refreshing, and those little crunchy bits make it so satisfying!
You can literally whip these up in 10 minutes flat. Mix some honey and vanilla extract into your Greek yogurt, chop up some fresh strawberries and toss them in a little jam, and crunch up some hard pretzels. Layer it into your popsicle molds and freeze! It’s just that simple, y’all.
I also really love how these ice pops aren’t drippy. Dontcha just hate giving your kids a pop, only to find their hands sticky and their clothing stained from all the drips?? Because the yogurt is so thick, it softens as it warms up, but doesn’t drip! Brilliant!
I hope you enjoy this fun summertime treat!

Strawberry Pretzel Popsicles
- 6-8 fresh strawberries
- 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
- 1/2 cup (100 g) Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 hard pretzels,, chopped
- Hull and chop the strawberries, and place them in a small bowl. Add the jam and toss to coat. Set aside.
- Mix the Greek yogurt together with the honey and vanilla.
- Place about a tablespoon of the yogurt mixture in the bottom of a popsicle mold. Layer with juicy strawberries and chopped pretzels. Repeat until the mold has been filled, ending with yogurt.
- Add in the sticks and freeze solid.
I used regular vanilla yogurt, put 2 T jam since I had large strawberries and decided we liked it chilled rather than frozen. Delicious!
Sounds delicious! Thanks for reading!
