TIP OF THE DAY: 15 Ways To Make Easy Cherry Treats

February 22nd is George Washington’s birthday, so per convention, we’re bringing out the cherries*.

There are endless recipes for cherry pies, cakes, muffins, brownies and bars, even cookies.

But our focus today is on ice cream.

Alas, we are nowhere near fresh cherry season, so here are some easy-to-serve options that don’t require waiting—or turning on the oven.

You can find cherry-flavored products, or create your own, e.g., by mixing dried cherries into oatmeal or yogurt.

  • Cherry Cocktail (mix cherry soda with your favorite spirit, make a Manhattan or other drink with a maraschino cherry garnish
  • Cherry Cordial or Liqueur
  • Cherry Herbal Tea
  • Cherry Jam For Croissants & Toast
  • Cherry Juice
  • Cherry Mocktail: Shirley Temple Or Any Lemon/Lime Soft Drink Mixed With Cherry Juice, Cherry Smash (Club Soda Or Other Soda With Cherry Syrup)
  • Cherry Salsa With Tortilla Chips Or On Chicken Or Fish
  • Cherry Float (Ice Cream Soda) With Vanilla Or Cherry Vanilla
  • Cherry Soda, Regular Or Diet
  • Cherry Sundae With Canned Cherries, Cherry Cordial, Cherry Pie Filling, Cherry Syrup, Dried Cherries
  • Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream Cone
  • Cherry Yogurt
  • Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • No Calories: Black Cherry Club Soda Or Still Water (e.g. Hint), Cherry Seltzer, Diet Cherry 7-Up, Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi, Dr. Brown’s Diet Cherry Soda
  • Trail Mix With Dried Cherries
    These are only for starters. Think about what you can create with canned, dried, frozen and jarred cherries, until fresh ones arrive at the store.

    *Washington’s biographer, Parson Mason Weems, made up the “Father, I cannot tell a lie” myth about young George chopping down the treasured cherry tree. He should have thought ahead and picked a fruit that would be available in February!
