I love cherry-lime things. Sonic’s cherry limeade, Trident Layers Cherry + Island Lime, pretty much anything. So, a cherry-lime pop seemed like a no-brainer.
But rather than just make it cherry lime all the way through, I thought it would be fun to make it along the lines of a creamsicle.
- Limeade (I used Minute Maid frozen concentrate, prepared according to the label)
- Maraschino cherry juice
- Lime sherbet
Mix the limeade and the maraschino juice. I used a pour cup from the zoku tools to measure – limeade up to line #2, and cherry juice to the third line. Mix well and pour into the pop maker. Freeze for 2-3 minutes, and then siphon out the center (I used the siphon from the tools, but you can also use a tiny turkey baster or a straw).
While the cherry layer is freezing, mix the sherbet layer. I totally eyeballed the measurements on this – a scoop or so of sherbet, then enough limeade to make it pourable. (I discovered long ago that anything too thick will not “zoku” well – getting things to a pourable consistency is key.)
After you’ve removed the extra cherry-limeade liquid, pour the sherbet mixture into the center of the pop. Freeze until solid, and enjoy!
A deliciously tart cherry-lime pop with a tart and creamy sherbet center! Yum! I’ll definitely make these again.
