A few days ago while we were at the grocery store, my husband wanted to buy jam.  Pfft!  I can make you some jam, you silly man.

Our cherry trees are almost into full swing of sweet, juicy, ripeness and the temptation was far too great, and we found ourselves snatching 1, 2, 10, 30… (I wasn’t counting? Were you?) of our favorite fruit.

They say that just one mature cherry tree produces 7,000 cherries!  *holds belly and moans*  Anyway, with cherries in hand, I made Bob a  Chia Cherry Summer Jam.  Four cups’ worth–I tend to get overly-excited from time to time!  I put some of the jam into a jar for his morning breakfast enjoyment and took the remainder of it to make these wonderful Dixie pops.

Let’s Talk Yogurt

There are many ways that we can go about this. You can make your own cultured yogurt. It can be made with young Thai coconut meat (here) or with cashews (here).

If you are in a pinch, you can even use full-fat canned coconut milk; though it’s not cultured, it will create a creamy base for these frozen treats. You could even use dairy yogurt. This recipe will adapt pretty darn well to whatever you decide to use.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Many blessings, amie sue

Yields 10 / 3oz Dixie cup pops


  1. In the blender, combine the Chia Cherry Summer Jam and yogurt.  Blend until mixed well.  Taste and add stevia or preferred sweetener, if needed.
    • The sweetener may not be needed; it depends on your taste buds and how sweet the fresh fruit is that you use in the jam recipe.
  2. Pour the mixture into a Ziploc bag, squeeze the excess air out, and snip the bottom corner of the bag.
    • With your “piping bag,” pipe the mixture into the popsicle mold.
    •  I used 3oz plastic Dixie cups.  These are perfect for portion control, and they pop right out after being warmed in hand for about 10 seconds.
    • Tap each cup on the countertop to work out any air bubbles.
  3. Slide small popsicle sticks into the center, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer overnight or until frozen.
  4. When ready to enjoy, remove from the freezer and roll the Dixie cup back and forth in the palm of your hands. This will warm it up a tad. With your thumb, press up on the bottom of the cup, and the popsicle should come right out.

Freezing Suggestions for Ice Cream:

  1. Freeze in popsicle molds or 3 oz Dixie cups with a popsicle stick inserted.
  2. Store the ice cream in the very back of the freezer, as far away from the door as possible. Every time you open your freezer door you let in warm air. Keeping ice cream way in the back and storing it beneath other frozen-sold items will help protect it from those steamy incursions.

    Hi, Your recipe sound delicious but I’m living in Spain and we don’t have fresh coconuts here. Any other idea how to make yogurt?
    Thanks ,

      Hello Bea,

      Do you eat regular yogurt (dairy)? IF not, you can Google how to make dairy free yogurts. I did that and there are tons of different recipes, some use oats, almonds, processed ingredients, etc. I am not sure what your diet is like, such as are you 100% raw? I personally, don’t have any other tried and tested ways of making yogurt other than what I have provided so I can’t stand behind any other recipes at the moment.

      Have a wonderful day, amie sue

    This looks so yummy! What is the consistency? Is it rock solid or creamy? Can it be eaten with a spoon? Thanks!!!!

      Hi Chris,
      It’s solid but semi creamy as it warms a tiny bit. I always let my pops sit for about a minute on the counter before eating, but that is my preference.
