I love making whole fruit paletas. A delicious summer treat using a puree of any whole fruit you have on hand.
After going to a
cherry farm and picking 10 pounds of Bing and Rainer cherries, I had plenty on hand for these frozen treats. And they are perfect for July 4th BBQ’s.
For this recipe you’ll need 2 cups of fresh cherries, lemon juice, sugar, salt and some water.
After pitting your cherries, blend everything together.
Pour the puree into your molds and add wooden sticks.
Freeze until they become solid; over night or at least 4 hours. Dip the molds in hot water to help the paletas release from the molds.
