Cherries & Cream Popsicles

As promised, I am sharing yet another delicious popsicle recipe.

This recipe only requires 4 ingredients; cherries, yogurt, milk and a little bit of sweetener.

My boys asked if they could have these popsicles for breakfast one morning, and because they contain such wholesome ingredients, I made their day (and surprised them) by saying, “Yes!”

I know I have raved about my popsicle molds before, but my Zoku Quick Pop Maker is quickly rising in rank.

The only downside to using popsicle molds, is waiting for them to freeze. When two little impatient boys hear my blender buzzing, that signals to them that I am either making smoothies or popsicles. When I say I’m making popsicles, they have a hard time waiting. I’ve even had tears before, when I’ve told them they won’t be ready for 4 hours. Popsicles are serious business in this household.

The Zoku Quick Pop Maker eliminates the waiting game. It only take 7-9  minutes to freeze your ice pops. I repeat…7-9 minutes.

We have been on a cherry kick at our house lately, so naturally when I came across this cherries and cream popsicle recipe, I just had to try it.

Measure out 6 ounces of pitted cherries, 1/2 cup Greek vanilla yogurt (my favorite is Chobani), 1/2 cup whole milk, and 1 1/2 teaspoons Truvia Baking Blend.

In a blender, combine cherries, yogurt, milk, and sweetener. Blend until thoroughly combined and smooth.

Remove Zoku Quick Pop Maker from the freezer. Insert stick and pour the cherry mixture into the cavity until you reach the fill line.

Let freeze completely and remove the pop with the Super Tool. Repeat with the remaining cherry mixture.

The above instructions are for a Zoku Quick Pop Maker. You can, of course, use regular popsicle molds if you do not have a Zoku Quick Pop Maker. Just pour the cherry mixture into your popsicle molds, and let freeze for 4-6 hours.

Notes

6oz fresh pitted cherries= 27.4 g of carbs and 3.6 g of fiber. Total NET CARBS are 23.8 g.

½ cup Chobani Greek vanilla yogurt= 11.5 carbs

½ cup whole milk= 5.5 carbs

1 1/2 teaspoons Truvia Baking Blend= 0 carbs

1 Popsicle= 5.8 NET CARBS

*The original recipes says it makes 6 pops. However, when I made them I was able to make 7 pops. Therefore, my calculations are based off of the mixture yielding 7 pops.

*As always, these calculations were made based off of the brands I used. Exact totals may vary.

Ingredientes

  • ½ taza Yogur de vainilla griego Chobani
  • ½ taza leche
  • 1½ cucharaditas de Truvia para hornear

  2. Vierte la mezcla de cerezas en los moldes de paleta y permita que se congele por un periodo de 4-6 horas.

Notas
6 oz cerezas frescas sin semilla = 27.4 g de carbohidratos, 3.6 g de fibra. Total carbohidratos NET son 23.8 g.

½ taza Yogur de vainilla griego Chobani = 11.5 carbohidratos

½ taza de leche = 5.5 carbohidratos

1½ cucharaditas de Truvia para hornear = 0 carbohidratos

1 Paleta = 5.8 carbohidratos netos

* Ya que los moldes de las paletas, pueden variar de tamaño, una manera de calcular la cantidad de carbohidratos es dividiendo la cantidad total de carbohidratos entre la cantidad de envases utilizados.

*Totales exactos pueden variar, nosotros hicimos 7 paletas de de cereza y crema.
