Cherry-Cola Pops
Recipe adapted from Shiho Yoshikawa, Sweet Rose Creamery, Santa Monica
Yield: Eight 4-ounce ice pops
INGREDIENTS

1 pound fresh sweet cherries (such as Bing or Brooks), pitted

½ cup water

⅓ cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

One 12-ounce can or bottle (1½ cups) naturally sweetened cola

DIRECTIONS

1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries with the water and sugar and cook until the mixture just comes to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and let the fruit steep for 30 minutes.

2. In a blender, puree the cherry mixture with the lemon juice and pour it into prepared molds until each is half full. Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze for 2 hours. Slowly pour the cola into each mold--filling them to the top--and freeze until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.

Note: These popsicles can also be made by mixing the cherry puree and cola together and pouring it into the molds to freeze in one layer. This technique works best for molds that have sticks attached to the lids.
