These cherry vanilla pops are frozen yogurt on a stick. Made with non-fat Greek yogurt they are creamy while low in fat.
cooking with friends kitchen
1 ½ cups pitted cherries
2 heaping tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¾ cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
In a small saucepan, cook cherries, lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar on a medium heat until a thick syrup forms (about ten minutes) stirring frequently. Transfer to a bowl and cool completely. (You can even cool in the refrigerator overnight.) Once chilled, strain the liquid and reserve the syrup to add some flavor to a glass of cold lemonade.
In a blender, mix together the yogurt, honey and vanilla until smooth. Add the cherries and pulse slightly until chunky. Pour mixture into molds ¾ of the way. Freeze until beginning to harden (approximately 30-40 minutes) and insert sticks. Let freeze for several hours until completely frozen. To remove, you may need to run a tad bit of warm water over the mold. Enjoy!
