Frozen Cherries Are Cool Summer Treats

Like I've been telling almost everyone I know, summer is definitely my favorite season of the year.  The sun is out, the birds are chirping, parents and children are enjoying music and merriment with a variety of free live shows outside, and Instagram addicts around the world are clicking away at the first sight of beautiful sunsets.  Around this time, I feel the world is definitely alive! 

It's hot and humid and no one is complaining about the glorious summer we're having this year. In this heat, we all have a need to rehydrate ourselves by sipping cold drinks, eating refreshing salads and nibbling on frozen fruitcicles.  Often enough, I scrounge around for something to eat that's simple to make and that won't make me sweat more than I already am.  Thankfully, I share my work days with extraordinary people who love to eat and cook as much as I do.  Last week, my dear friend Maggie gave me a one-ingredient and two-step recipe for a snack that everyone is guaranteed to like : frozen sweet cherries.  
I have to thank Maggie for this awesome idea.  It is the perfect refreshing summer snack/dessert.  

All you need are fresh sweet cherries.  And. That's. It.

The hardest part is to pit the cherries and to wait for them to freeze until they become these delectable frozen snacks.

Of course, there are always tricks to pit small fruits like cherries, without pain.   Check this out from CHOW and you'll thank yourself for saving those paper clips.

What a great idea! I'm going to try this tonight. Thanks. Love frozen cherries in ice cream, and cherry yogourt, so this is bound to be delicious. Wonder why I never thought of it myself.
