Tart Cherries And Cream Popsicles

Tart Cherries And Cream Popsicles

I am loving all this fresh fruit!  This week I’ve made mini cakes with apricots and a delicious blueberry and sweet corn crisp.  Summer is shaping up to be pretty great so far.

So today let’s start off the weekend with these tart cherries and cream popsicles – tart cherries mixed in with sweet, vanilla cream, frozen till icy cold and delicious.  I mean, who doesn’t love an anything and cream combo – cookies and cream, peaches and cream, strawberries and cream – it’s all so good.

I especially love tart cherries because, well, they’re tart.  I love my sweets, I could put down a huge hunk of chocolate cake or eat my weight in taffy, but I also love a good ying and yang.  My favorite desserts usually have a savory, tart, or spicy element that cut some of the sweetness – like a salted caramel brownie or toasted marshmallow ice cream.

Plus these tart cherries and cream popsicles are so easy to make – and if you can’t find tart cherries in your area, you can easily find them (sometimes called pie cherries) in your freezer or canned pie filling aisle.

A cool, refreshing treat with a tart twist and a sweet creamy finish – another ultimate summer treat.
