Cherry lime pops

Very cherry

If you're a sucker for sweet and sour treats, there's plenty to love about these easy DIY cherry limeade popsicles featured on Simple Bites by guest blogger Katie!

Katie says that when the going gets hot, she and her little ones can be found taking jaunts through the sprinkler, wading in the kiddie pool and cooling off with healthy, fruit-based frozen treats. (Not a terrible way to spend those lazy summer days, we know!) She includes an easy recipe for making your own limeade, which she then combines with frozen cherries in the blender.

Katie also shares a great tip for keeping those popsicle sticks in place if you're using Dixie cups or other glasses: just cover the cups with a sheet of foil and poke the sticks through for easy peasy placement. Check out the full post for her complete walkthrough and recipe.
