Quick and Easy Cherry Coconut Fluff Dessert Recipe

My husband and I were invited to a summer cookout and volleyball extravaganza. Like all good Midwesterners, we automatically knew that includes bringing food for the potluck portion of the party. Unfortunately, earlier in the week due to a raging thunderstorm that took down power line followed by temperatures that shot up into the 90’s (F ) our electric company gave a huge chunk of the state the gift of multiday rolling blackouts early in the week. Fortunately, we got our electricity back in one of the first waves. Even though we didn’t lose any of our food in the freezer (I had the freezer packed with big reusable ice packs similar to these to get them ready for the party) the power outages made grocery shopping for fresh party food ingredients difficult.

Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

Homemade Popsicles are all the rage in food circles this year. They blow those plastic tubes of neon colored sugar water Popsicles out of the water!

I officially declare 2011 The Summer of the Popsicle. It's a nice follow up to 2010 The Summer of the S'more.

My family discovered frozen fruit bars last summer. I felt better about serving a snack that is fruit and juice. It became spendy because a box of frozen fruit bars never lasted more than a few days after I brought it home from the store.

Lo and behold, the winter holidays dropped a family gift of a set of  BPA free plastic Popsicle molds similar to these down our chimney. Thanks, Santa me! (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience.)

Last week Mother Nature turned off the cold and turned up the heat to full blast. Ahhhh, a nice homemade frozen fruit bar would be refreshing in this weather.

I just send my daughter this link. She loves making them for her kids. Have you ever put spinach in them? She puts fresh spinach in her smoothies and you'd never know but the kids are getting the veggie.

My father would like these. He's a big fan of frozen fruit bars and popscicles. The cose of those things can be crazy, so it would be nice to make homemade ones for a fraction of the costs.
That looks so good! Perfect for summer!
Yum! Following from Sumo‘s Sweet Stuff link party. Would love to have you link this up to my {wow me} wednesday link party going on right now over on my blog. Hope to see you there.

Using yogurt is a great idea. These are perfect for the hot weather. Come and see them featured at My Meatless Mondays. Please bring another great recipe.
Yum! Perhaps I will sub with a almond or coconut milk for the yogurt! I am waiting for my possible molds in the mail! :)
Let me know how it goes! I developed this recipe before I made a vow to stick to lactose free foods to calm my tummy troubles. I still make these Popsicle but wish for an alternative I can eat without lactose intolerant side effects.
