Cherry Limeade Popsicles are a delicious way to satisfy a sweet tooth! Simple to make and a nice way to cool down on a hot day. Dip cherry popsicles in sparkling wine for a decadent treat!
I’ve been slightly obsessed with all the popsicle recipes that I’ve seen on Pinterest lately.
I almost bought one of those very cool plastic molds so that I could start trying all the recipes I’ve been drooling over.
For now, I talked myself out of the fourteen dollar purchase and picked up the popsicle sticks at a craft store instead.
I turned this cherry limeade popsicle treat into a decadent dessert by using my dessert shooter glasses to make mini popsicles and dipped them in sparkling wine!
How To Make Cherry Popsicles
It is quite simple to make your own fresh fruit popsicles.
Gather the following Ingredients:
- Fresh lime juice
You need the following kitchen tools:
- Cherry pitter or sharp knife
- Blender or food processor
- Popsicle molds or freezable small container
- Ice Cream sticks
You will need to follow these simple steps:
- Prepare fruit – For this recipe we use fresh cherries. Wash and pit the cherries.
This step will take the longest. Be sure to check out my cherry compote recipe for some tips on how to pit cherries.
- Simmer – Add all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes (longer if using frozen cherries).
- Cool – let ingredients cool to room temperature.
- Puree – place cooled ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until blended.
- Freeze – Pour cherry puree in popsicle molds or a freezable small containers.
Can I Use Frozen Cherries?
Yes! Enjoy popsicles all year long and use frozen cherries if fresh isn’t available.
Pick a brand that doesn’t add additional sugar otherwise your popsicles may be extra sweet.
In addition, the simmering time will need to be increased an additional 5-10 minutes.
What Can Be Used In Place Of Popsicle Molds?
If you don’t have a silicone popsicle mold don’t let that stop you from trying to make these popsicles.
Look around your kitchen for some ideas. Here are a couple:
- Small paper cups
- Juice classes
- Shooter glasses
- Small parfait glasses
- Plastic or silicone ice trays
Serve with sparkling wine
Turn these simple cherry popsicles in an extra special (adult) tread and serve them in glasses filled with sparkling wine.
Perfect for a bridal shower, birthday gathering or nice change to a New Year’s Eve celebration.

I love these popsicles and dipping them in wine is almost sinful. I can’t wait!
Producing a good blog is expensive. Every post costs money and then there’s the hosting, design, technical support, time to promote on social media and much more. I have no problem letting people know when I do a sponsored post.
These are such a excellent treat with the sparkling wine! I’ve really tried to blog bargain style, and have struggled through some tech issue on my own. I eventually figure it out, but with so many tweaks in my “to do” list I need to find someone that is my go-to person! My next project will be a new web design, but I’m not doing that on my own 🙂
This looks like such a fun adult treat ice lollies and bubbly. Michigan Cherries are so delicious this time of the year. I hope they import some to HK so I can make your delightful treat. Just shared! Take Care, BAM
Thank you, Bam! Yes, I hope the cherries make it your way soon! They’re so tasty!
I love making fresh fruit popsicles, this is an amazing post. Will definitely make this again. Pinned/shared.
Thanks for spreading the love, Joanne!
Those look uber tasty, and I will definitely try the wine. I really like the charity aspect of it.
Hi Liz! The duo is fabulous! I’m a softy when it comes to helping charities 🙂
Those popsicles sound delish on their own, but I LOVE that you combined it with wine! Cherry limeade is soooo good. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, you can give some to the kids, while the adults have theirs with a drink!
These look delicious and fresh!
Thanks, Debra! Simple ingredients that we can pronounce 😉

I love that you have them dipped in sparkling wine! Makes them so much more adult 🙂

That looks really good.. we just bought those cherries and i think they might be gone..
Fresh cherries haven’t lasted long in our house. I had to hide some cherries so I could make these popsicles – lol.
Michael from DefiningDad
Wow, those are some beautiful (and tasty-looking) popsicles! Thanks for the information on OneHope wine and your easy recipe for a summer treat.
Hi Michael! Thanks so much for the nice compliment!
A good Popsicle in the store is kinda expensive, so thank you for this fun recipe! I love the idea of putting it in your summer drink. Great job on this blog!
You are right, Paula! It seems the more natural a treat is, the more expensive it is too!!
Wow – those look really good. Sounds like they would be perfect for a hot summer afternoon!
Flip-flops and popsicles! Those are my favorite summer memories, and now sparkling wine 😉
Terrific popsicles! I always have a sweet tooth during afternoons!
Thank you, Katerina! A mini popsicle would satisfy an afternoon craving!
