Cherry Milksicles

June 21, 2010

Author Notes: Not much of a back story, just an idea that popped into my head and turned out pretty darn tasty! I got one of those ZOKU popsicle makers for my birthday, so that's what I used and it worked great!!! - aargersiaargersi

Food52 Review: A popsicle for grownups. Aargersi's refreshing milksicles take all of 10 minutes to make and, on a hot, hectic day, can make all right with the world. The icy texture of the frozen milk contrasts nicely with the still pulpy cherry. Note: Once frozen, the flavors are more subtle so feel free to nudge up the honey or almond amounts if you want a richer tasting ice-pop. - KristenThe Editors

Serves: 3 zoku popsicles


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • pitted and halved cherries, enough to get quite a few in each popsicle mould
In This Recipe


  1. Warm the milk with the honey and almond extract enough to melt the honey into the milk. Cool to room temp then chill in the fridge.
  2. Pour a little milk into your popsicle mould, then push some cherries down in there, then pour milk. Wait 7 minutes if it's a ZOKU, otherwise freeze til solid the way you usually do , remove, enjoy!
