Cherry Lime Popsicles would be a delicious and satisfying way to cool off during these hot months. Tart, sweet, and refreshing!

I recently bought some cherries with the intentions of making these gluten-free mini cherry pies but it’s been in the 90s recently. I live in Germany, where nobody has AC at home (and most people don’t have it at work, either!), which means the oven isn’t going on. There’s just no chance.

So I’m happy to have found a way to use up all those cherries and cool down! Another great way to cool off would be with this avocado ice cream.

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a box of popsicles? I’m not afraid of a little processed food here and there but the ingredients in popsicles are just gross.

Artificial flavoring, artificial coloring, corn syrup, and even more sugar. Just… no! You can make popsicles that are actually good for you in only a few minutes. All you do is puree everything and pour the mixture into a popsicle mold. It shouldn’t take you any more than 5 minutes.

Actually, I take that back. It does take about 10 minutes to pit the cherries but if you’ve got a cherry pitter, it’s not that much of a hassle. It is, messy, though, so put on an apron!

If you don’t want to use honey as your sweetener, you could use granulated sugar and maybe another 2 tablespoons of water. Maple syrup would probably also work well.

If cherry lime isn’t a combination you like, just omit the zest and replace the lime juice with water. Or use lemon juice and zest! Popsicles are so incredibly easy to make and adaptable to your preferences. As long as you have enough sweetener, you really can’t go wrong!

If berries are more your speed, try these ginger berry popsicles. They’re perfect for upset tummies! These vegan pina colada popsicles are another fun variety!
