Skinnytaste Ice Pop

Popsicle's are a great way to cool off during the hot summer months, but you must be careful. Popsicle's are often loaded with sugar and many contain artificial additives/coloring, which can be a health issue. However, Gina Homolka of the popular site Skinnytaste has developed a calorie friendly recipe for Cherry Lime Ice Pops that have little sugar content and no additives. Sounds perfect, right?   

1 lb cherries
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp fresh lime juice

Stem the cherries and remove the pits.  In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries with the water, sugar, and lime juice, and cook until the cherries are very soft and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.  Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.

Puree the cherries and their liquid and put the mixture through a fine sieve.

Pour into ice pop molds and freeze.
