I have totally slacked in the popsicle department, which is a shame, because they are SO EASY! Aside from the banana popsicles I made last summer, it’s been YEARS since I went on a popsicle bender. I made these about a month ago so that I could have something cold and refreshing for Joseph to have as a snack. Such a large number of store-bought treats are off-limits because of his allergies (why is there soy in nearly EVERYTHING?!). With all of the fresh fruit available right now, it was a no-brainer to throw some stuff into a blender and make a fresh treat for him.

Joseph loves all fruit, as in he would eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and be perfectly content, so I was pretty confident that he would enjoy these cantaloupe and cherry popsicles, and… I was right!

I grabbed a ripe cantaloupe (which was a big win for me since I’m awful at picking out ripe-but-not-rotten melons) and got to work. We keep a steady stash of cherries in the fridge when they’re in season, and along with a little bit of honey, lime juice, and Greek yogurt, I had everything I needed.

MY OTHER RECIPES

After a quick spin through the blender, a beautiful orange puree was being poured into the popsicle molds. Drop in some fresh cherries as you’re pouring and, voila! Only a few hours away from beautiful, refreshing homemade popsicles.

The first time Joseph tried one, I don’t think he was sure what to make of it! It was too cold and hard to bite, but he scarfed down the second one a week later like a pro! He gives these cantaloupe-cherry popsicles his stamp of approval :)

(It’s definitely necessary for someone else to hold one for him since they’re so big, but after seeing Jessica rave about the Zoku mini pop mold, I’m going to get one so his popsicles are more suited to his little hands and mouth!)
