Serving: 8-10 posicles
Preparation: 20 minutes 4-5 hours to freeze

Fragrant Lebanese sour cherries and watermelon epitomize summer in the Middle East. I did a huge batch cherry compote and found some super sugary watermelon and the flavor pairing part of the brain started to tick... Tasted both the watermelon and the cherry compote and the sweet and sour combo was irresistible... So this Popsicle was born as i remembered the paletas (Mexican Popsicle) which i has tasted in the Latin parts of LA. They have whole fruit chunks which gives a good mouth feel.
The raw cane sugar (jaggrey) is a good source of sugar which adds a subtle earthy flavor.
