Homemade Frozen Popsicles
Before the heat of summer fades, we wanted to share a fun popsicle recipe that you can still enjoy during the warm days of August (and beyond). We know something is a winner when our teenage kids (and their friends) gobble it up. THIS is one of those recipes and you will not believe how simple it is.
Here’s the thing about most frozen pops. They are loaded with excess sugar (or artificial sweeteners) as well as food dyes and other additives our bodies don’t need. And if you are lucky enough to find a cleaner brand, you may notice they cost a small fortune!
Enter, homemade pops. As with anything homemade, it’s a win-win. Not only do you have complete control over the ingredients you choose, it’s cost effective to boot.
The recipe we came up with is very versatile. We made two batches, one using a combo of mango and pineapple and one using blueberries. Aside from choosing your favorite fruit (or combo of fruits), the only other thing you’ll need is a good brand of honey and a can of unsweetened full fat coconut milk. We favor raw, local honey and are fans of canned coconut brands like Native Forest or Thai Kitchen, available in most supermarkets.
By the way, don’t be afraid of the fat content in the full fat coconut milk. This recipe makes about 10 pops so the fat content in each pop is more than reasonable. And even if you are not a coconut fan, the end result does not taste very “coco-nutty.” We asked the kids and they didn’t even know there was coconut in there (hint: the coconut milk makes the pops super creamy).
Oh, and if you DO love coconut, feel free to blend in 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes which will enhance the coconut flavor.
