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!!! - aargersi —aargersi

Test Kitchen Notes

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. - Kristen —The 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!
