Cherry Nectarine Mint Popsicles

Popsicles have become a weekly thing at my house this summer.  I love having them on hand to cool off for a snack after a walk on a hot day, and I think my boyfriend Eric feels the same since he always gets excited when I bring out the popsicles.  It is a good way to use up an over abundance of fruit or very ripe fruit as well!  Last week I had some very soft but flavorful nectarines and cherries, and I thought they would make an awesome combination!

That would have been wonderful as was, but to make it even better I decided to add in some fresh herbs in the form of mint. To me herbs and fruit are a match made in heaven in the summer, and mint is cooling so how fitting that I used some in a popsicle!  These were so delicious and I felt like a little kid enjoying them with their bright colors!  

Cherry Nectarine Mint Popsicles
Makes 6

Nectarine layer:
2 cups ripe organic nectarines, diced
juice of one lemon
stevia to taste or your choice liquid raw sweetener
about 4 fresh mint leaves

Cherry layer:
2 cups fresh organic sweet cherries, pitted
juice of one lemon
stevia to taste or your choice liquid raw sweetener
about 4 fresh mint leaves

Put all of the nectarine layer ingredients in the food processor or high speed blender and blend until smooth.  Pour into 6 popsicle molds. Place the cherry layer ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth.  Pour over the nectarine layer, then place the sticks in the popsicles and place in the freezer until frozen or overnight.
