Cherry Chocolate Amaretto Creamsicles

Summer is made for fruity deserts.  And ideally not the kind that you have to slave for hours in the kitchen over a hot stove or oven!  If this is your 'cup of tea', look no further. Meet: Cherry Chocolate Amaretto Creamsicles

Servings 6 -8 popsicles


  • 1 1/2 cups pitted ripe cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups full-fat vanilla or cherry yogurt
  • 3 ounces Amaretto*
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 ounces good-quality dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Blend the cherries, yogurt and Amaretto together in a blender until only small bits of cherries remain, approximately 30 seconds.
  2. Pour into your popsicle forms and freeze.

  3. Once frozen, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler or in the microwave (if melting in the microwave, simply microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until it is just melted).  Place it in a tall jar or cup that your popsicle will fit into.  Drizzle each popsicle with chocolate on a baking rack with parchment underneath and drizzle with the chocolate.  Either serve immediately or place on a sheet of parchment paper and put back in the freezer for up to 1 day.
