Cool off this summer with these healthy and delicious Fruit Swirled Yogurt Pops!
Made with fresh strawberries and cherries, they're bursting with flavor and so simple to make!
One of my favorite things about the warm weather is getting to eat lots of frozen treats. I pretty much eat ice cream all year round, but during the warmer months I love to make my own homemade ice cream and other goodies. These Fruit Swirled Yogurt Pops are one of newest creations! Made with just four ingredients, these yogurt pops are beautiful, delicious, AND healthy!
I created this yummy recipe in partnership with Produce for Kids for their 2016 Spring Campaign. I participated last year and really enjoyed promoting such a great cause. Produce for Kids teamed up with Meijer to bring Jump with Jill, a rock & roll nutrition show, to local schools. The campaign launched May 29 and runs through June 26. It will raise funds for Jump with Jill and offer Meijer shoppers healthy meal solutions, recipes and tips. Since 2013, Produce for Kids has donated $342,823 to Jump with Jill, and about 75 schools have been supported through the campaign since fall 2014!
The campaign is supported by nine participating fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers, representing most major categories of fresh produce.
- Dole® Packaged Salads
- Earthbound Farm® Organic Packaged Greens
- Green Giant Fresh Klondike Rose® & Red Potatoes
- Well--Pict Berries® Strawberries
- Marzetti® Refrigerated Salad Dressings
- Real Sweet® Vidalia® Onions
- Grower Direct® California Cherries
- Sunset® Tomatoes on the Vine

1 1/2 cups halved Well--Pict Berries® Strawberries
1 1/2 cups Grower Direct® California Cherries, pitted
1 cup organic whole milk plain yogurt
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
In a food processor, puree the strawberries with one tablespoon of the sugar. Transfer to a small bowl. After cleaning the food processor, process the cherries with one tablespoon of sugar. Add those to another small bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt and remaining tablespoon of sugar. Using a tablespoon, alternately add the three mixtures into ten popsicle molds, making 3 to 5 layers in each. With a knife or skewer, swirl the mixtures together. Freeze for one hour, then insert popsicle sticks. Continue freezing for at least three hours, or until solid.
