Let kids help with the simple steps in bold!
- 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted (or thawed frozen cherries)
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt (or plain yogurt plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
- honey to taste (optional)
Step 1: Rinse the cherries and remove the stems and pits.
Step 2: Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. If using tart cherries, add honey 1 teaspoon at a time after blending, until desired sweetness is reached.
Step 3: Transfer mixture to molds or freezer-safe cups and insert handles/sticks in the center of each popsicle. To make mini popsicles, use ice cube trays and insert toothpicks for handles.
Step 4: Place in freezer for several hours or overnight, until frozen firm.
Step 5: Gently remove popsicles from molds and enjoy!
Tip: If popsicle removal is difficult, place the mold in a bowl of hot water for a few seconds to slightly thaw/loosen the popsicles so they slide out of the molds more easily.
