Cherry Yogurt Popsicles

18 | July 19, 2012

One of my favorite things about summer is making popsicles and granitas with my daughter. Creating our own gorgeous versions is much more fun and ten times more delicious than unwrapping a store bought neon dyed one. Here’s an extremely simple recipe for Mia’s favorite popsicle, Cherry Yogurt Popsicles. Made with real fruit and not concentrated sweetened juice, these sweet and fresh popsicles are not only delicious but good for you.

Cherry Yogurt Popsicles makes 10 3oz popsicles

* I find frozen defrosted organic cherries are the best for this recipe. They are already pitted and have had time to release their juices. If you prefer, fresh cherries can substituted.

** I used White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt for this recipe as part of an upcoming product review. The taste is tart and provides a fantastic flavor combination with the cherries. I highly suggest it but any plain yogurt can be substituted.

Place defrosted cherries in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.

To the yogurt, add honey and stir to combine.

Pour about 2 tablespoons of the cherry puree into the molds. Next, pour 2 tablespoons of the yogurt honey mixture into the molds. Repeat until the molds are full and you have layers of cherry puree and yogurt.

With the end of a spoon or a chopstick, lightly stir the cherry puree and the yogurt until it just begins to have a swirled effect.

Place popsicle sticks in the molds and place in the freezer. Freeze at least 4 hours or until frozen.

To remove from the molds, pour warm water briefly over the outside of the popsicle molds and then pull on the popsicle stick. Enjoy!

The smile says it all.

    Making the popsicles myself will save a bundle over the frozen fruit bars from the super market. Have to get that Popsicle mold. I could eat these everyday!
