Cherry And Cream Bomb Pops

Cherry and Cream Bomb Pops

Total Time: 5 hours 45 minutes

Active Time: 15 minutes

Serving Size: Makes 10 Pops

Ingredients:

1 ½ cup Juicy Juice 100% Juice, cherry flavor

1 ½ cup frozen dark cherries or pitted fresh cherries

½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt

⅓ cup half and half

1 tablespoon honey

Ice pop molds

Ice pop sticks

Preparation:

  • Puree Juicy Juice 100% Juice, cherry flavor and cherries in a blender until the cherries are slightly broken down, 10 to 20 seconds. Divide the cherry mixture in half. Take one half and pour into each pop mold, dividing evenly among them (they should each be about ⅓ full), and freeze 45 minutes. Refrigerate the remaining batch of cherry mixture for step 3.
  • Whisk Greek yogurt, half and half and honey in a large glass measuring cup with a spout until the honey is completely dissolved into the yogurt mixture. Divide among the pop molds (the pop molds should be about ⅔ full after). Set pop molds in freezer and allow to firm about 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, a layer of ice should form across the top, but the yogurt layer should not be solid.

Remove the 2nd batch of cherry mixture and stir to combine. Fill the pop molds with a final layer of the remaining cherry mixture, add pop sticks, pressing down through the partially frozen layers and freeze until solid, at least 4 hours. Run under warm water to release pops from molds and serve!
