Equipment

  • Popsicle molds and sticks
  • Food processor or stick/immersion blender with chopping bowl attachment.
  • sieve or strainer

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (500gms) fresh cherries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 & ½ tablespoons white sugar, divided
  • Approx. 2 large (750gms) fresh ripe mangoes
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

Instructions
 

  • Pit the cherries and cut them in half. Blitz them well in a food processor. Strain through a sieve, taking care to push through as much pulp as possible.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and vanilla to the strained cherry pulp and mix well. Half fill the popsicle mold and freeze for 30 minuites to one hour. While the cherry layer is freezing start on the mango layer.
  • Slice mango flesh by slicing off each cheek, scoring flesh into cubes, then popping out and slicing off. Slice the limes and half and juice the lime. Add the mango flesh to a food processor and blitz until smooth. Add the lime juice and ½ tablespoon of sugar and mix well.
  • Pour the mango layer on top of the cherry layer. For distinct flavor separation leave them as they are. For swirled popsicles you can gently mix the popsicles at this point, poking into the semi-frozen cherry layer a bit.
  • Add the popsicle lid and sticks and freeze for at least four hours, or until frozen through.
  • To serve these delicious homemade popsicles remove from the popsicle molds and enjoy!

Notes

  • Make sure you have enough room in your freezer for your popsicle molds with the stick before filling them.
  • Use very ripe fruit for maximum sweetness and flavor.
  • If you are having trouble removing the popsicles from the molds run them under some warm water for a few seconds.
