Hola everyone! Here’s a recipe for more pops!!! 😀 I originally wanted these to be red, white, and blue pops–cherry for the red, lemonade for the white, and blueberries for the blue. But… the cherries ended up kinda purple/maroon-ish and the blueberries look just like the cherries, so I renamed them to lemon herbed cherry berry pops. There’s lemon (flat lemon lime soda) in every layer and there’s a different herb in each layer (cherry-basil, lemon-mint, blueberry-thyme). This is the ultimate, elegant adult pop! I hope you likey (and think they’re as pretty as I do!!!). Have a great day… and check out my guest post over at Blacker Berry Food. It features my Lime Coconut Vegan “Gelato!”
Lemon Herbed Cherry Berry Pops
4 1/2 cups lemon lime flat soda, divided
1 pint blueberries
1 tablespoon thyme simple syrup
1 1/2 cups fresh, pitted cherries
1/4 cup basil simple syrup
juice and zest from 1 lemon
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
2 tablespoons fresh chopped mint
*Blend cherries, 1/2 cup flat soda, and basil simple syrup until smooth. Strain. Divide the cherry mixture between 30 ice pop molds (fill to about 1/2 inch high). (Save the pulp for a smoothie or homemade ice cream sauce!). Freeze until frozen solid.
*Mix 2 1/2 cups flat soda, along with juice, pulp and zest from one lemon. Add lemon juice, 1/4 cup of sugar, and chopped mint. Mix until sugar is completely dissolved. Once cherry layer is frozen, divide lemon mixture between molds and freeze for ~1 hour or until lemon layer is slushy. Add sticks to molds. Freeze until completely solid.
*Blend blueberries, 1 1/2 cups flat soda, 2 tablespoons sugar, and thyme simple syrup. Strain twice. Divide the blueberry mixture between molds. Freeze until completely frozen. Enjoy!!!
What gorgeous refreshing pops my friend 😀

These sound so refreshing Tiffany! I love all the flavors, especially the cherry :)! The layers are beautiful as well!
Love the combination of flavors in your ice pops! So refreshing!
Our summer month is September. With a run of foggy days my new pop mold remains unused…so far! Pairing cherries and blueberries with hints of herbs and lemon is a satisfying summer treat!
this looks amazing – each layer sounds so perfectly delicious! love this!
mmmmmm…..amazing…. refreshing….. delicious….pops!!
Lovely pops! The lemon and herb cherry flavour sounds incredibly refreshing! Yum!
Such pretty colours even if you didn’t quite get the effect you were looking for. Great flavours!
I missed the opportunity to work on Popsicles this year…summer hasn’t end yet but I’m getting busy with regular routine. I have to keep this recipe for next year though. I love berries and you made Popsicles sooo pretty! All the layers… 🙂 What a wonderful treat for hot summer days.
Thanks for the comments everyone! 😀
