National Cherry Popsicle Day Date in the current year: August 26, 2016

National Cherry Popsicle Day On August 26, treat yourself to a cherry popsicle as it is the National Cherry Popsicle Day. A popsicle is a flavored frozen snack also referred to as ice pop, freeze pop, ice lolly, ice pole, ice block, ice lollipop, and chihiro.

Popsicle is the most popular brand of ice pop in the United States and Canada. Due to its popularity, it has become a genericized trademark. Nowadays any ice pop, regardless of format or brand, can be referred to as popsicle.

Cherry popsicles are made by freezing cherry juice or any freezable cherry-flavored beverage. Homemade cherry popsicles may contain coconut milk or Greek yogurt mixed with fresh or frozen cherries.

To celebrate the National Cherry Popsicle Day, you can indulge yourself with a store-bought cheery popsicle. But we suggest that you try making cherry popsicles yourself. Here is an easy recipe for you.

Place 16 ounces defrosted frozen cherries in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. In a bowl, combine 1 cup plain Greek yogurt and 2 tbs honey. Pour 2 tbs cherry puree into each popsicle mold. Then pour 2 tbs yogurt with honey over puree. Repeat until molds are full. Place popsicle sticks in molds and put in the freezer. Usually it takes at least 4 hours for popsicles to freeze.
