Cranberry Cherry Popsicles are all about the fruity sweet cherry. Only three ingredients and I wish the freezer could freeze faster. Easy and refreshing.
Welcome to popsicle land! That is what my kitchen looks like. Especially today with lots of Cranberry Cherry Popsicles getting pulled out of the freezer.
Even while this is going down I am working on filing up more molds with Pineapple Coconut Popsicles. That recipe is going on the blog within a couple of weeks and I will link to it here (update: linked) …
but … today’s recipe is all about the fruity sweet cherry and getting some relief from the hot summer.
There are only three ingredients in this easy to make popsicle and they couldn’t taste finer.
The only thing I wish could happen is that the freezer could freeze faster. Easy, cool and fruity!
Eating popsicles equals having fun so don’t forget to have them on summer holidays too such as the 4th of July and Memorial Day. What is a summer celebration without a popsicle!
What are Some Good Popsicle Molds?
- I have two favorites for adults and then there are some good small popsicle molds for kids too!
- The first one I ever bought is this one! It’s Norpro Frozen ice Pop Maker. It’s one drawback is that the stick goes pretty far down into the unfrozen juice so this perfectionist (yes, me) sticks a little bit of scotch tape on the side of the stick where it attaches to the cover.
- Now you have a nice long stick to hold on to. And it’s so classic. I have seven different popsicle recipes using this popsicle mold on the blog.
- My favorite is the one pictured below for the Pineapple Coconut Popsicles down at the bottom of the page. They are Zoku Popsicle molds. You can see how easily the pops would slide out of the mold.
- I use popsicle sticks with those too but the molds come with their own stick that works perfectly.
- These smaller popsicle molds are perfect for little ones. You even get 18 Whonline molds so that you can use up all of your recipe at once.

There are so many great juices out there now but you really need to read the label to see what’s inside. Look for 100% Cranberry juice that has no sugar for this recipe.
It is fun to think up other fruit combos that go well as popsicles. It’s even more fun when you taste them as get knocked off your feet with great taste.
What Fruit Goes with Cherries for Popsicles?
- These fresh fruit choices or juice choices can be used for this recipe.
- Nectarines can be blended right along with the cherries.
- Citrus would be delicious whether it be oranges or grapefruit. You may need to add a tablespoon of maple syrup if the fresh fruit is too tart.
- Apricot fruit at about the exact time as cherries and they’d be great together.
- Peaches would be perfect.
- Plum and cherries would give you a full round of vitamins A, C, K and more nutrients.
- All the berries and you can use fresh or juices.
Cranberry Cherry Popsicles
- 2 cups cherries - frozen
- 2 cups cranberry juice, use one with no sugar added
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- Add all of the cherries and juice to you food processor. Blend for 30 seconds and add the maple syrup.
- Process some more until the consistency your like. I like my popsicles close to a juice so I go about a minute. That is it!
- Pour into you popsicle molds and freeze at least 6 hours.
- You need to order some popsicle sticks too. I use a tiny bit of scotch tape on the edge of the stick and touching the plastic lid to hold them out at the length that I like. When the popsicles are frozen or even just hardened a little you can take off the scotch tape.
