The Freshman Cook: Fruity Fruit Popsicles/#FoodieExtravaganza

I love a refreshing popsicle when it is hot and humid outside, don’t you? Well, it has been hot and humid, and popsicles have become our daily treat! These Fruity Fruit Popsicles are loaded with flavor from fresh blueberries and cherries that are frozen in White Cranberry Juice, and they are quick to make!  You will love them!

Blueberry and Cherry Popsicles


(makes 3 popsicles)

9 ounces White Cranberry Juice

12 fresh Cherries

 fresh Blueberries

Pour 3 ounces of White Cranberry Juice in to each popsicle mold. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes. You want the juice to be semi frozen; kind of slushy. Wash and pit your cherries and cut them in half or quarters. Wash blueberries. Rinse the cherries under water once they are cut.  If you don’t, the cherry juice will run in to the cranberry juice and discolor it. Start filling each popsicle with the cut cherries and the blueberries. The blueberries will float, so try and get them to stay down by placing cherries on top of them. Freeze them for several hours. Cool off with this refreshing treat!
