Summer plum and cherry ice pop


Author Notes: One of the easiest, tastiest recipes you could use to beat the summer heat. Add a hint of basil to the plum and cherry mix, for that extra little healthy kick. Once ready, you’ll see how versatile this recipe is - the sorbet mix works both as a healthy snack as well as a light after-dinner treat. It can be frozen in cups or in popsicle molds and is 100% kid-approved. Most importantly, though, there are no sweeteners added here. The natural sugars in the fruit are what make it burst with flavor.Michelle J. Calcatelli
