The weather here in LA has been hot! We had scheduled work on our Air conditioning, and of course it coincided with this heat wave, so needless to say staying cool in our house has been a challenge. I wanted something cool and delicious, and since we always have coconut milk on hand, and we had a surplus of strawberries, this popsicle was born. It’s quick and easy to make, and the ingredients are clean and healthy so it’s the perfect treat for kids. It’s creamy, dreamy, and oh so good.
What you will need
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
1 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Little squeeze of lemon juice if you want to play up the tartness of the berries (optional)
Popsicle mold I used THIS one.
Combine milk, 1 cup strawberries (saving half a cup to chop up), maple syrup and vanilla in blender. Blend until smooth.
Chop the leftover 1/2 cup of strawberries.
Place a spoonful of chopped strawberries in each popsicle mold.
Pour liquid in to fill the mold.
Place your sticks and lids on.
Makes 4 popsicles, adjust recipe as needed for more popsicles.
Freeze for at least 6 hours.
Run the mold under warm water for 15 seconds to get the frozen pop to release easily.
That’s it! I hope you love them as much as I do, and stay cool out there!
