Summer Favorites: Cherry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Pops

a

I love cherries.  Cherry pie, cherry cheesecake and even cherries straight from the bowl.  Our boys also love all things cherry, and these yogurt pop treats are a new family favorite.


Cherry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt Pops

Makes: approx. 18 {3 oz.} cups

1 {8 oz.} pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
2 tbs. cherry juice
3 cups plain Greek yogurt
2 cups fresh or frozen cherries, pitted

1.  Put all ingredients except cherries in a blender or food processor and mix well. 
2.  Cover and freeze for approx. 20 - 30 minutes or until very cold, but not frozen.
3.  Put cherries in blender or food processor and chop to desired size.  Add yogurt mixture
and blend well.




4.  Spoon into popsicle molds or 3 oz. disposable cups.  Some of the yogurt mixture did not make it into the cups at our house!  I caught someone helping himself to a yummy treat.




5.  If using disposable cups, freeze for approx. 45 - 60 minutes, remove from freezer and insert popsicle sticks.  Return to freezer and freeze until firm.

These look amazing! I'll have to prepare a batch of these soon, but with the strawberries I've been meaning to use. :)

Vanessa said...

I think strawberries would be delicious, too! You could also use one tablespoon of lemon juice instead of the cherry juice.

I agree, Mindy. Making them was just as much fun as eating them! I think we will be using the disposable cups for popsicles from now on. :) The boys loved helping and it wasn't too messy.
