Summer is well upon us, with the weather hot and icy drinks everywhere. A cold smoothie is refreshing, maybe an icy lemonade. For us, when a hot day rolls around we love to have these frozen treats! A simple combination of 5 ingredients and a bit of time in the freezer is all you need to make a creamy cherry popsicle recipe.

Let’s get into this recipe of ice pops!

It might seem strange that you’ll need fresh cherries, but believe me, that adds to the flavor of these great pops. Real cherries give you an intense cherry flavor that frozen cherries don’t have. Especially when combined with room temperature whipping cream, they just pop. You can use fresh sweet cherries, or my personal favorite, tart cherries. Since there’s a bit of added sugar and creamy additions as well, these cherry vanilla popsicles shine when tart cherries balance out.

You won’t have a hard time putting these together. They’re so easy!

A quick mix and some time in the freezer, and you’ve got yourself (and your kids, if you make some to share) 8 tasty popsicles. Fruit popsicles at the grocery store can have many ingredient additions, but making your own at home, you know for sure that you’re enjoying natural ingredients. If you, like me, enjoy cherry season by picking cherries, then you know for sure that a simple ingredient like that can go a long way. Cherry salads, juice products, and many more cherry recipes all grace my kitchen. Covering cherries in dark chocolate and freezing them is an amazing sweet treat, and one with simple ingredients, too! When cherry season is in full swing, my kitchen is bustling with delicious recipes.

Popsicle molds can come in handy for so many things, especially in the summer!

Cherry popsicles can be the recipe that make you buy those popsicle molds you’ve had your eye on. There are all sorts of fun shapes that you can buy. It’s especially fun to enjoy a cold treat that’s in a funky shape. You can add frozen fruit and water into them, making different flavored popsicles, or large ice cubes for pitchers of water and drinks. The iced coffee cubes have been pretty popular lately and are actually a pretty smart idea. Let these cherry popsicles be the first ones to break in the mold, you’ll be making them over and over again all summer long!

Here’s what we’ll need for these cherry popsicles:

Cherries are rich in vitamin C and fiber. They’re low in calories, too!

Whipping cream is the smooth beginning to these cherry popsicles. You’ll need 1 cup.

Cream cheese is generally well tolerated by those who are lactose sensitive because it is low in lactose properties.

Powdered sugar adds the perfect touch of sweetness to these cherry popsicles.

Vanilla extract undoubtedly combines with the whipping cream and cream cheese to make the perfect flavor balance with the cherries.

    These are great to make for the kiddos. The cream cheese in here is especially tasty. Can’t wait to make these over and over again in the summer.
