Cherry Cheesecake Greek Yogurt Pops
Cherry Cheesecake Greek Yogurt Pops are a creamy, Greek yogurt popsicles with cherry cheesecake flavor. They’re the ultimate frozen treat!
I had a little problem last month…my 17+ year old garage fridge decided to break on us. Yup, Old Faithful bit the dust. It was a good run, but it put my frozen treat making on major hold since I had no space in my kitchen freezer.
I’m happy to say that I’m back in business, and will have a deluge of frozen treats coming your way before fall hits.
I’m feeling an ice cream/popsicle spree coming. 🙂
Growing up, I had this thing for cherry pie filling. I’m talking the canned stuff, because nobody I knew made cherry pies from scratch. I know I’m big on making things homemade, but if you put a can of that in front of me, I’m sure I’d still eat it.
Childhood memories, you know? 🙂
While I loved cherry pie growing up, it was cherry cheesecake that I loved best, with that canned cherry pie filling all over the top. I decided to create a low-guilt way for me to enjoy my cherry cheesecake with these pops, complete with fresh, juicy summer cherries.
And it was totally worth pitting 1 1/2 lbs. of cherries!
I have a handy cherry pitter that made this job easier, and the kids can even help out, too, if you have some around! They’ll be happy to help pit cherries knowing that they’ll be paid in pops. Mine didn’t happen to be around when I made these, and it really did go quick. You can bypass this step by purchasing frozen cherries, thawing them out, and tossing them in the blender. Super simple. 🙂
I pureed the cherries with some maple syrup, then I ran the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to get rid of the bits of peel. You can totally leave that in for texture — that’s completely up to you.
These pops were a hit — how could they not be? Cherries and cheesecake are a match made in heaven, and pops are always a great way to cool off. Especially when they’re lightened up! These are creamy, refreshing, and indulgent without weighing you down. I wish all cherry cheesecake was this way. 🙂
