These cherry Greek yogurt ring pops make a fun and healthier alternative to regular popsicles, and they are just the right size for an after-meal sweet treat.
Last week, my daughter and I were perusing the aisles at Dollar general and came across these super cute ring-pop molds. Of course, I had to buy them. We immediately drove home and got busy in the kitchen.
Since we didn’t bother to stop at the grocery store, we had to use the ingredients available. We didn’t have enough Vanilla Greek yogurt to complete the recipe, so we mixed together what was left of the vanilla with some plain yogurt. Together with a splash of milk and some frozen cherries, the mixture made the perfect consistency for molding a popsicle. I helped to find the right amount of each ingredient, but I let Mia make them.
They made a fun, and healthier alternative to the traditional popsicle, and they are just the right size for an after meal sweet treat.
How To Make Cherry Greek Yogurt Ring Pops
As I mentioned above, we used a combination of plain Greek yogurt and vanilla flavored to make these pops. You can use all plain, but if you only use a flavored variety, you may have to eliminate the milk, or use less of it. Flavored Greek yogurt is thinner, so the consistency will be thinner.
We used a food processor to blend the ingredients before pouring into the molds. For those of you that prefer a smooth consistency, a high-powered food processer will work best. If you like, or don’t mind, having pieces of fruit in your pops, a blender will work fine. You can get the pieces of fruit with a food processor by pulsing, rather than blending. Either way, they are tasty and nutritious.
Also, if you don’t have the molds, try using ice cube trays.
These nutritious and delicious cherry Greek yogurt pops are only 20 calories per pop, and 3 grams of carbohydrate. They are just the right size for small fingers, and adults love them. Too.
