Here is a nice, delish, low glycemic pop for you to enjoy on your hot summer days. All you need is a little time, a bit of fruit, and some space in your freezer. It is also fun to make them and eat them every day. Mixing it up and trying new ideas, you can become a mad scientist! I make these for myself because I love the fruity taste.
I have been experimenting with different sweeteners to find the most low glycemic with the least amount of spike feeling, and of course, great taste. I will be making my report in the future. This time I used Monk Fruit for my sweetener and I thought it worked very well. Monk fruit is great for all of us because it has lots of good stuff, yet also has zero calories and a glycemic index of zero.Print

1 c. very ripe cherries
1/2 cup filtered water
1 tbs. monkfruit sweetener
Cut up half of the cherries into chunks. Fill into popsicle molds. Blend remaining cherries, water and sweetener. Fill liquid around the cherries. Add the popsicle handles. You may have to push them through the fruit to get them down to the bottom of the mold. Freeze solid. Enjoy!
You can make this recipe with any fruit that has a low glycemic index. Nice choices are strawberries, lemon, lime, grapefruit or peaches. I also like to experiment with herbs, which can add surprising flavour. If you don’t have such a sweet tooth you can omit the sugar and just savour the delightful flavour of your fruit. This recipe is great for fruit that is very soft and does not look perfect, but tastes amazing.
