These Strawberry Coconut Popsicles are the simplest thing to blend together. I made a batch (using little paper cups and toothpicks because I don’t have popsicle molds) and now I have a great, simple and healthy frozen treat anytime I need one.
1 can full fat coconut milk
1 pint fresh strawberries
2 tbls maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Set out little paper cups or popsicle molds. I used pretty small cups and make about 20 popsicles; the amount you make will depend on your mold size.
Rinse strawberries (if the they are organic, leave the leaves on them.) Place into a blender and pulse until relatively smooth depending on your preference; any berry chunks will be a frozen little berry in the popsicle. Pour into a container and set aside.
Add the coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla to the blender, blend to combine. Pour the coconut milk into the bottom of each cup, just a few tablespoons, using about 1/2 of the coconut milk.
Add half of the blended strawberries the the coconut milk in the blender and blend to combine. Now fill each cup with about 1/4 cup of the coconut strawberry mixture.
Top each cup with the remaining blended strawberries. Set the cups in the freezer. Set a timer for 20 to 30 minutes (so the popsicles are formed enough to hold up the sticks) and push a toothpick or popsicle stick into the cups. Enjoy when fully frozen.
Variations: mix these easy homemade coconut popsicles up by using different berries like blueberry, blackberries or cherries.1
