Cherry Paletas- Phases 1 and 3

Paletas are super easy to make and super refreshing on a hot day. This is a perfect p1 snack, or can be your fruit and healthy fat for p3 lunch. You can make them sweet or sour, creamy or not. 

Cherry Paletas
Phases 1 and 3
Makes 2 servings

2 cups pitted fresh or frozen cherries
1/2 water for p1 or coconut cream for p3
1 T lemon juice
1 tsp (or more if you want) vanilla extract
Xylitol or stevia to taste

Throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth. If you would like to have chunks of cherries in your paletas, then blend 1 1/2 cups of the cherries with the other ingredients until smooth. Add remaining half cup and pulse to chop the cherries.

If you want to add sweetener, add a little, taste then add more if you want. You want the blended mixture to taste sweeter than what you want the end product to taste. 

Place your popsicle mold or paper or plastic cups onto a baking sheet. Pour the mixture into the molds, or paper or plastic cups. The molds I use are listed here in this post, Foods and Tools I Use Frequently. If you are using cups, simply cover them with foil or plastic wrap and poke the wooden or silicone sticks into the cup. Place the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze until firm.
