Cherry Ginger Cream Popsicles


So, I still have some recipes to share with you from my little creative meetup but I couldn't resist sharing this lovely recipe first. It's so delightful and complex tasting but so, so, so easy to throw together. You won't believe how sophisticated these pops taste after you put just 5 minutes of effort into assembling them. 


I love cherries. To be specific, I love tart cherries, the plump little beauties that make up cherry jam and cherry pie filling, and cherry clafoutis. If you've ever enjoyed a cherry baked good, it was most likely made from tart cherries. They're sour and juicy and a touch sweet, essentially the perfect fruit. 


In the summer, S and I like to go out to an orchard in New Jersey and pick a boatload of cherries to dehydrate, freeze, preserve, and otherwise enjoy throughout the year. We picked so many last year, that I made multiple cherry crisps this year in the dead of winter, and it was lovely. 


However, this was a hard, cold, long winter, and when it came to cherry season early last month, the orchards just weren't producing. The you-pick cherries were very sparse, and there were none to be found in the farmers markets or the aisles of Whole Foods. For the first time, I have had to buy cherry jam, and tart cherry frozen puree. It was heartbreaking for me. 


These popsicles are delicious, regardless of there not being any fresh tart cherries this year. The sharp, spicy ginger is a natural partner with the sweet/tart cherries, making a popsicle that is both sweet and just a little bit spicy. 


The yogurt adds a lovely, creamy note to the fruity pops and helps tame the gingery bite. Try to get a cherry jam with some sizable cherry chunks, getting a bite of two of pure fruit in your pop is lovely. I whipped these up in my Zoku making the whole process take less than 20 minutes from raw ingredients to the first bite. 


I love the spicy, tangy, gingery edge these have. It takes what is already a lovely, fruity pop and turns it into something grown up and a bit more complex. I want to make a joke about how I am a Ginger, and I love ginger, but I am 90% sure I have made that joke on this blog before.


The short ingredient list, and three step production process make these one of the simplest recipes I've ever posted, but the end product is decadent and delightful. I will definitely be making these again soon. Enjoy!



Cherry Ginger Cream Popsicles
1.5 C greek yogurt
4 tbsp honey
1/2 C cherry jam
2.5" piece of ginger
2 tbsp milk of choice


Grate the ginger using a microplane or other fine grater. 
Combine ginger, yogurt, milk, and honey in a medium sized bowl, stir well. 
Add jam to yogurt mixture and swirl or lightly stir, so jam combines with yogurt but doesn't mix entirely in. 

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. If using traditional molds, freeze for 4-6 hours. I used my Zoku, which took about ten minutes per pop. Enjoy!
