Cherry is my favorite ice pop flavor! But the ice pops you get at the store are usually nothing more than red dye, artificial flavors and sugar. These homemade cherry pops are made with real ingredients and taste like real cherries! More fun summer treats are Lemon and Ginger Ice Pops, Pina Colada Ice Pops, Citrus Basil Mojito Ice Pops, and Peaches and Cream Popsicles.

I love the deep red color you get from using real cherries and the flavor is not that artificial cherry taste you get from those imitation flavored pops, it’s richer with a more intense cherry taste.

Pitting cherries can be a chore, so I highly recommend buying a cherry pitter (affil link) there are so many to choose from on Amazon, this is the one I have.

PS- You can find the popsicle molds on Amazon too! I used this mold, with regular popsicle sticks in the photos.

  1. We picked cherries recently and used some for this recipe. They were so delicious, and the color is gorgeous. Both my husband and I loved them!

  2. I didn’t have enough cherries so I made “berry” popsicles with blueberry and raspberries. I’m thinking they should be just as yummy! They’re freezing now. I’ll let you know. 

  3. Can I use frozen cherries? If yes,do I still have to boil
    them and should I thaw them out first before boiling? 

    Thank you 

  4. Worth the effort.  I could lighten up on the sugar.  My popsicle set is sailboat shape. These looked like red sails of luscious yum mines.   Wish I could post a pic!

  6. I made the cherry lime popsicles this afternoon and they came out great!  they tasted wonderful and the color was a beautiful shade of dark red.  Thanks for the recipe.

  7. I made these today and found that I also wasn't able to get much liquid when straining the mixture. I decided to just put everything in the popsicle molds. The popsicles were good, but were not that smooth since they had the fiber of the skin.

      Perhaps too much water evaporated, add a little more to the blender, then run it through the sieve

  8. These are great! In addition to being beautiful, they taste great and the texture is wonderful. Whole family loved them. I had a little left over after filling my popsicle molds so I froze some in a mini ice cube tray and put toothpicks in them. They inserted easily, even when the cubes were totally frozen. They were the cook's own secret treat. Shhhh….don't tell.
