You guys! You guys! I can cross something off my summer list! I made popsicles over the weekend and oh my goodness they were delicious! And so easy too! Since it’s still pretty hot and you know you want to enjoy the last bit of summer, I’d highly recommend making these yummies! They’re healthy too..promise!
Strawberry Coconut Popsicles makes 10
1 15-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup fresh strawberry puree
1/4 cup honey
Whisky the coconut milk, vanilla and 2 Tbsp honey until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the strawberry puree and the remaining honey, until combined. Add more honey to taste, if necessary.
For a layered popsicle, pour the coconut milk into the popsicle mold, divided evenly between the 10. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then add the strawberry puree. Freeze for 30 minutes, then insert the popsicle sticks and continue freezing for 6 hours, until firm.
To remove the popsicles, either let them sit out for 5 minutes until soft to pull out, or submerge the bottom of the mold in room temperature water for 10-15 seconds then gently pull to release from the molds.
*If you’re like to have a mixed pop: stir together the coconut milk and strawberry puree and divide evenly between the molds. Freeze for 30 minutes, then insert the popsicle sticks and continue freezing for 6 hours, or until firm.
* Agave nectar would be great in here too but I loved the idea of the honey with coconut. Use whatever you like though! Remember the sweetness mellows out a little bit after the pops are frozen.
Have you made any popsicles or ice cream over the summer? Would love to know about any favorites you have. We ate these ones so fast I want to make some more. It’s nice to have cold treats handy!
