Popsicles! You can eat for breakfast!
These Cherry Froyo (Fro yo? Frozen yogurt!) Popsicles are a healthy, creamy, dessert/breakfast in popsicle form. They’re naturally sweetened with honey and fruit, plus they make enough to stash in the freezer for enjoying all week.
My kids love popsicles and I can’t blame them. Icy treats are so great for hot days. They help cool you down and keep you hydrated. I can’t bring myself to buy ordinary popsicles because they’re basically just sugar water, but these popsicles are filled with things you can feel good about.
I love the classic shape I get from these popsicle molds and have been longing to develop another popsicle recipe after sharing my Cantaloupe Date Popsicles. Plus I’m buying allthefruit right now because it’s in season and looks/tastes so amazing!
These Cherry Froyo Popsicles are easy to customize! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Use whatever juicy, ripe fruit you have on hand such as strawberries, plums, or raspberries
- Stir all of the cherry puree into the yogurt for an entirely pinky/purple popsicle
- Fill the popsicles molds just a little less and add a sprinkle of granola before putting the cover on and sticks in
- Use softened vanilla ice cream in place of yogurt for a decidedly less healthy treat
- Skip the popsicle molds and enjoy the cherry puree swirled into yogurt bowls with a sprinkle of granola, nuts, seeds, or your other favorite topping

- 2 cups fresh pitted sweet cherries
- Juice of one lemon
- 7-10 fresh pitted sweet cherries, halved
- 2 cups whole milk Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup raw honey
Puree 2 cups pitted cherries in a food processor. Push the puree through a fine mesh strainer into a large glass measuring cup. Discard any remaining solids.
Add the lemon juice to the cherry juice and stir to combine.
In a large glass measuring cup or bowl, stir together yogurt and honey. Add about half the yogurt mixture to the cherry juice and stir to combine.
Pour a small amount of the cherry mixture into 10 popsicle molds. Divide the honey yogurt evenly amongst the molds, then top with the remaining cherry mixture, being sure to leave a small space at the top.
Push one or two cherry halves into each popsicle mold, cover, and insert wooden sticks. Allow to freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
To easily remove popsicles from their mold, remove from the freezer and run under hot water for a few seconds.
