Who could turn one of these beauties down on a hot summer day? Certainly not us. We love that these pops combine some of our favorite things (did someone say: fresh summer fruit and creamy Greek yogurt!?) and they can be versatile with any summer fruit you’ve picked up at the market. Bring on the “fruit” and cream!
Cherry Cream Popsicles
Makes: 10 popsicles
Total Time: 4 hours 30 minutes
2 cups fresh pitted sweet cherries
¼ cup honey
juice of one lemon
¼ teaspoon almond extract
2 cups whole milk Greek yogurt
¼ cup honey
extra pitted sweet cherries, halved
Add 2 cups pitted cherries and ¼ cup honey to a blender or food processor and puree. Strain puree through a fine mesh strainer into a large measuring cup and discard any remaining solids.
Add the lemon juice and almond extract to the puree and stir to combine.
In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt and honey. Then add about half of the yogurt mixture to the cherry mixture and stir to combine.
Pour a small amount of the cherry mixture into 10 popsicle molds. Layer with the yogurt
mixture, dividing evenly amongst the molds. Top with remaining cherry mixture, leaving a little bit of room at the top.
Push a couple cherry halves down the side of each mold. Insert sticks and freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
