You’re only 4 simple ingredients away from enjoying this delicious cherry recipe — cherry vanilla ice pops, to be exact! These frozen fruit pops will be your go-to treat when you want to cool down this summer!
When you think of cherry recipes, what do you normally think of? For me, it’s usually pie or smoothies (this cherry smoothie bowl is always a popular choice in our home).
When I have fresh cherries on hand, though, they don’t usually make it to any recipe. They go straight from the fridge into my mouth, LOL.
Today I’m bringing you these yummy perfect-for-the-season cherry ice pops. So easy and so delicious!
These fruit ice pops take minutes to whip up and the hardest part is waiting for them to freeze. But, trust me, it’ll be worth it!

Tips to Make This Yummy Cherry Recipe
- I used vanilla almond milk in this recipe. If you prefer to use regular milk or regular almond milk, that’s okay too, but they won’t have as much vanilla flavour. I totally recommend the vanilla almond milk, though if you can get your hands on it.
- If you don’t have vanilla almond milk, add a little more vanilla extract. It’s better to add a little at a time (drops) and taste before freezing.
- For this cherry recipe, I used frozen pitted cherries. You should be able to easily find in the frozen fruit section of your supermarket.
- I didn’t add any extra sugar to these ice pops. For me the flavour was sweet enough. However, if you like things a little sweeter, add maple syrup to taste.
Not only do these cherry vanilla ice pops taste fabulous (I mean, really good), the colour is just so stunning, don’t ya think?
