Cherry-Lime Zoku Pop

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.

Ingredients

  • 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.
