Gone are the days when you just fill up a plastic cup with grape juice and freeze it for your kids. Homemade popsicles are all the rage right now, with lots of new popsicle books on the market, as well as a quick pop-making machine! The New York Times even ran a feature in their magazine which included lots of cool recipes for fruit, savory, creamy, and boozy pops. Who would have thought of making avocado-cilantro, fennel, or chocolate-chili ices?
Popsicles are a great way to cool down from the summer heat. Instead of store-bought varieties that are packed with sugar and food coloring, try making some at home. Here, I whipped up some cherry yogurt pops for a delicious cool and milky treat.
Cherry Yogurt Popsicles
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 cup pitted cherries, chopped
2 tbsp honey or agave
Combine yogurt, cherries and honey and spoon into popsicle molds. Freeze until completely solid, about 5 hours.
TIP: to loosen popsicles from their molds (these are from IKEA), just hold under running water for a minute or so.
