NATIONAL CHERRY POPSICLE DAY

Thursday, August 26, 2021

Each summer on the 26th of August, Popsicle lovers across the United States enjoy National Cherry Popsicle Day. To celebrate try this delicious treat made with coconut milk, fresh cherries, vanilla and a touch of pure maple syrup for a kid and grownup friendly summer treat! Paleo & Vegan, dairy free, soy free Cherry Vanilla Popsicles recipe listed below.

One evening in 1905, 11-year-old Frank Epperson mixed a batch of soda on his porch and left it with the stirring stick still in it for the night. That evening in San Francisco, California the temperature dipped to record lows and the following morning, Frank discovered instead of soda pop, a frozen treat on a stick. Inspired, he created the fruit-flavored “Popsicle”.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Popsicle history:

• In 1905 in San Francisco, 11-year-old Frank Epperson was mixing a white powdered flavoring for soda and water out on the porch.

• He left it there, with a stirring stick still in it.

• That night, temperatures reached a record low, and the next morning, the boy discovered the drink had frozen to the stick, inspiring the idea of a fruit-flavored ‘Popsicle’, a portmanteau of soda pop and icicle.

• Eighteen years later in 1923, Epperson introduced frozen pop on a stick to the public at Neptune Beach, an amusement park in Belmar, New Jersey. Seeing that it was a success, in 1924 Epperson applied for a patent for his “frozen confectionery” which he called “the Epsicle ice pop”.

• He renamed it to Popsicle, allegedly at the insistence of his children.

5 m                         4 h                      4 h  5 m
...........................................................................................................................

INGREDIENTS

• 1 can full fat coconut milk, cream and water separated and half the water discarded
• 2 cups fresh cherries, pitted (I did this by hand pretty easily)
• 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 1-2 tsp pure maple syrup*

DIRECTIONS

1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend just until thick and creamy but not totally smooth. I like a few cherry pieces in the popsicles so I didn't blend until smooth.

2. Pour the mixture into 8 popsicle molds (or as many as it takes to fill your molds), freeze preferably overnight, and enjoy!**
