Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

On a hot day here in Southern California, there is nothing more satisfying than a sweet frozen treat! For most people, the first thing they always think of when they think of frozen desserts is most likely ice cream.

And while I always have some of my 2 Ingredient No-Machine Ice Cream lying around, there’s also something really fun and special about making popsicles as well! Since they’re a perfect single serving treat, they end up being fun to eat and super simple to make! So when I created my 5 Best Popsicles for Summer, I decided to add in some yummy Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles as one of my newest flavors! And if I do say so myself, I’m pretty sure you’re all going to like them.

This recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles gives the classic Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream a run for its money! Mint and chocolate are a match made in flavor heaven, since the crisp notes of mint perfectly complete the creamy richness of chocolate! There really is something nostalgic about that pastel green mint base studded with rich chocolate that never fails to get me excited about eating dessert! Because of this, I’m sure these popsicles are going to be a summer time staple for a long time to come.

These Mint Chocolate Chips Popsicles look every bit as good as they taste, and can be made with just a few ingredients you may already have on hand. Creamy yogurt and milk are mixed together and flavored with mint extract to form the “mint” part of these popsicles.

    Hi – Thanks for the wonderful recipes and home-friendly gourmet treats! I am enamored with your popsicles so I tried the mint chocolate chip. The store didn’t have greek plain, so I got plain yogurt. The pops smelled wonderful and froze beautifully. But the taste was twangy and not sweet at all. Besides ‘use real greek yogurt, silly’, any thoughts. Thank you!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 30, 2018 at 5:52 am

      Hi Niki,
      yogurt can be bitter, and different brands have different degrees of bitterness.
      In Greece, where yogurt with almonds is a regular breakfast they serve it with a light honey, divine!
      You can do this too, to taste, you can check it as you go.
      Also do try a different yogurt. check the carton in the store. Some locally produced yogurts are ‘strained’ to be a bit thicker, and are delicious, and often mild to taste too.
      I hope this will be of help,
      Gemma 🙂

  2. Rita on June 11, 2018 at 4:01 am

    Hi Gemma,
    Can you clarify please? Is it plain Greek yogurt that is used in the recipe? Thanks!
    P.S. love all your recipes and enjoy so much all your videos!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 12, 2018 at 4:24 am

      Hi Rita,
      Yes. Greek yogurt is usually plain. A natural strained yogurt is much the same thing, but do not tell the Greeks 😉
      If a yogurt says Greek Style, it is often thickened rather than strained, and the fruit flavored ones are usually this type. This is a different thing.
      I hope this is of help,
      Gemma 🙂

  3. ANNA on April 14, 2018 at 12:20 am

    Hi!
    I just wanted to know if I could use flavored yogurt because we don’t get Greek or plain yogurt where I live?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

      Yes you can use flavored Anna. No problem.

      Best,
      Gemma.

      • ANNA on April 15, 2018 at 9:25 pm

        THANKS A LOT GEMMA , I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO TRY THE RECIPE!
        ONE MORE QUESTION,WILL IT EFFECT THE TASTE??????
        ANNA

        • Gemma Stafford on April 16, 2018 at 7:53 am

          Hi Anna,
          Yes! you will taste the flavor of the yogurt you use.
          Gemma 🙂

  4. Tshimologo on April 7, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    After three months what should I do with the ice crea?m

    • Gemma Stafford on April 8, 2018 at 11:17 am

      Haha! Eat it!
      Really food left in a freezer for more than a month or two is being stored, and this is not the purpose of a freezer. The real purpose of a freezer is to preserve food, to be used up in reasonably fast time. Eat it, and enjoy it, as fresh as you can I say!
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Tshimologo on April 6, 2018 at 4:32 am

    Gemma can I use mint puree and sugar for mint ice cream.

    • Gemma Stafford on April 6, 2018 at 7:18 pm

      sure, that will work well. 🙂

    • Tshimologo on April 7, 2018 at 10:50 am

      Thanks Gemma💙

      • Tshimologo on April 7, 2018 at 11:04 am

        With your help my business is fine💙

  6. Kris on January 15, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    Hi Gemma, I was wondering if mint ice cream will work instead of the extract and if vannilla yogurt would work except for Greek.

    • Gemma Stafford on January 15, 2018 at 9:20 pm

      Hi Kris,

      I’m just check, did you mean to type ‘mint ice cream’? I wouldn’t recommend using that instead of the flavoring. Also ice cream would be really hard to get out of the molds.

      Yes you can use vanilla yogurt no problem. Hope this helps.
      Gemma.

  7. Rashidi on November 28, 2017 at 6:10 pm

    Hello Gemma. i found a mint flavoring & mknt paste at the local store. there are also strawberry, blueberry, yam flavoring & strawberry, blueberry, yam paste. what are the difference between flavoring & paste? can i use paste in my popsicle?

    • Gemma Stafford on November 30, 2017 at 6:12 am

      Hi,

      Feel free to use those. They will work well. Just note that they are concentrated flavors so you only need to add a small amount.

      Best,
      Gemma.

      • iRashidi on November 30, 2017 at 1:39 pm

        Thank you very much.another question… i already watched all the 2 ingredient ice cream & popsicle videos including the written recipes, some of the ice cream & popsicle last for up to 8weeks and some just 2 weeks. can you explain why?

        • Gemma Stafford on November 30, 2017 at 7:11 pm

          sorry thats my mistake. They all will last happily for 8 weeks 🙂

          • Rashidi on December 1, 2017 at 1:43 pm

            Thank You. how to use the paste? do i put in directly to my popsicles? can i also pu it in my 2 ingredients ice cream?

            • Gemma Stafford on December 4, 2017 at 8:29 am

              Hi there Rashidi,
              You can add the paste, just a little, to the liquid ingredients, and taste as you go. It will taste less strong when it is frozen.
              Good luck with it now,
              Gemma 🙂



          • Rashidi on December 5, 2017 at 3:58 pm

            ok thank you very much

          • Rashidi on January 26, 2018 at 5:42 pm

            Hello Gemma,

            What happens to the ice cream after 8 weeks? is it still edible or not?i should i throw it away after 8 weeks?
            I’m asking because i am planning to open up small business selling ice cream using the 2 ingredients ice cream recipe.

            • Gemma Stafford on January 27, 2018 at 4:32 pm

              It’s still totally fine to eat. I have had it in my freezer for 3 months :).

              Good luck with your business.
              Gemma.



          • Rashidi on January 31, 2018 at 1:43 pm

            Thank You very much

    Hi Gemma! I love your recipes and I’m a big fan of popsicles. I’m wondering, is there a difference between using a blender and a food processor to make fruit popsicles? I noticed that you used a food processor.

    • Gemma Stafford on October 19, 2017 at 5:59 am

      Hi there,
      Good question!
      The real difference is one of having the space for the fruit to pulp up, without binding in the blender.
      Most blenders are great for liquid ingredients, but no so good for solid ingredients. If you use a blender then do small amounts at a time, this will help,
      Gemma 🙂

      • adelenneteoh on October 19, 2017 at 6:22 am

        Thanks Gemma! I’ve been using my blender a lot for my fruit popsicles and when I un mould them, there’s always 2 layers – like breastmilk, with the water (I didn’t add water) at the bottom and the fruit mix at the top. So I’m guessing this is also one of the difference between a blender and a food processor? Your popsicles look very solid and there wasn’t any water layer.

        • Gemma Stafford on October 20, 2017 at 1:42 am

          Ah! I do not know what the issue is! I am stumped, I would not really expect to find that. Almost as though the ingredients are separating. I cannot figure it out, I am sorry,
          Gemma 🙂

  9. Elisabeth on September 28, 2017 at 5:22 pm

    What brand of chocolate do you use?
    Looks yummy!!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 29, 2017 at 2:49 am

      Hi Elisabeth,
      I use Ghirardelli, when I have it, but really what matters is the cocoa content. A semi sweet, 70% (ish) cocoa content is what will give you a great flavor, and mouth feel too. For the popsicles a good brand, one that you like, will do it,
      Gemma 🙂

  10. Alice on July 13, 2017 at 7:15 am

    What brand of mint extract do you use?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 14, 2017 at 3:05 am

      Hi there,
      I use my own, when I have it. McCormick do a good supermarket brand, and sometimes i pick one up in the healthfood store. There is one called Natures Answer, which is alcohol free. I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Alice on July 20, 2017 at 6:16 pm

        Thank you! I just went to the supermarket and bought the McCormick brand. Can’t wait to try your recipe!

  11. Caroline on July 4, 2017 at 8:33 am

    Hi Gemma!

    Can is there any substitute for the greek yogurt in the mint chocolate chip popsicle?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 5, 2017 at 1:52 am

      Hi Caroline,
      Not so much for this recipe. Greek yogurt is a strained yogurt, you may find this in your store. It can only be called Greek if it is made in Greece, it is a controlled name. However there are lots of great strained yogurts out there. not Greek style, as these are often thickened artificially, but strained. This is a natural yogurt which has been strained, through a fine sieve, cheesecloth, for about 8 hours, over a bowl in the fridge. It removes some of the water/whey, and leaves a thick yogurt behind. You can do this at home too. Hope this is of some help!
      Gemma 🙂

  12. EmojiLover on June 29, 2017 at 4:50 am

    Is this pop like an ice cream pop or a popsicle

    • Gemma Stafford on July 2, 2017 at 4:45 am

      Hi there,
      A little like a cross between the two really, rich and delicious,
      Gemma 🙂

  13. StripedTiger on June 27, 2017 at 5:13 am

    Just one question, could you use fresh mint instead of mint extract?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 27, 2017 at 9:26 am

      sure but just note you will have to chop it up really small so it is just little bits and people aren’t eating chunks. 🙂

      • ANNA on April 13, 2018 at 8:07 am

        Hi!
        just wanted to know if i could use dark chocolate?

        • Gemma Stafford on April 13, 2018 at 6:11 pm

          Hi,

          yes dark chocolate is perfect.

          Gemma 🙂

  14. PandaPlayz on June 27, 2017 at 5:01 am

    This popsicle looks so good!!! I can’t wait to try it out!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 27, 2017 at 9:26 am

      delighted you like it 🙂

  15. Alli on June 12, 2017 at 5:41 pm

    Can I make these with cream instead of milk? How would that affect the texture? Also, is the texture of these popsicles more like ice pops or ice cream pops? Thanks

    • Gemma Stafford on June 13, 2017 at 4:41 am

      Hi Alli,
      Thank you for being in touch. Yes, you are right, the texture is what will change when you change the ingredients in these recipes. The higher the fat content the softer will be the result water freezes like ice, hard. Additional ingredients will soften this, to a greater or lesser degree. Experiment with these, swap and change ingredients, an you will have fun testing the results, and you will be learning something too! it is like science!
      Gemma 🙂

  16. Elen on June 11, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    Yes I have seen your video that how to make a mint extract but as in our country alcohol and vodka etc are prohibited. I’m sure I can find it in my nearest super market

    • Gemma Stafford on June 12, 2017 at 1:54 am

      Great Elen,
      You may find a brand without alcohol. Glycerin is also used to preserve this,
      Gemma 😉

  17. Elen on June 10, 2017 at 6:24 am

    Is there any substitute of mint extract and can I use normal yogurt?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2017 at 2:51 am

      Hi Elen,
      Yes, you can use normal, natural, unsweetened yogurt. If you strain this you will have a Greek style yogurt, but this is not necessary for this recipe.
      Mint extract is essential if you want a mint flavor. I have shown you how to make this here on my website, but it may be easier for you to buy it, depending on where you live. You could of course use vanilla, or leave it out! Do try it, it will not be a fail,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Elen on June 11, 2017 at 1:03 pm

        Thanks ????
