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 makes the perfect consistency for molding a popsicle. We used a food processor to blend the ingredients before pouring into the molds. For those of you that prefer a smooth consistency, blend the mixture well. If you like tasting pieces of the fruit, pulse but don’t over-do-it. Either way, they are tasty. The result was these nutritious and delicious cherry Greek yogurt pops.

These ring pops make a fun alternative to the traditional popsicle, and they are just the right size for an after meal sweet treat.
