Makes 6 Pops

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CHERRY BASE
6 ounces fresh pitted cherries
½ cup Greek vanilla yogurt
½ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon granulated white sugar

FOR THE QUICK SHELL
2/3 cup (4 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup (2 ½ oz) refined coconut oil 

MAKE THE CHOCOLATE QUICK SHELL
In a double boiler over barely simmering water, whisk together the chocolate and coconut oil until the chocolate has completely melted. Remove from heat and let cool completely before applying to pops. Yields 3/4 cup of Quick Shell.

MAKE THE CHERRY BASE
In a blender, combine cherries, yogurt, milk, and sugar. Blend until throughly combined and smooth.

ASSEMBLE THE POPS
Remove Zoku Quick Pop Maker from the freezer. Insert sticks and pour the Cherry base into each cavity until you reach the fill line. Let freeze completely and remove the pops with the Super Tool. Repeat with remaining pops.

ADD THE QUICK SHELL
Hold a pop flat side facing up, use a small spoon to drizzle Quick Shell onto the pops. Wait a few seconds for the shell to harden and do the same to the other side. Enjoy!
