The Ultimate Summer Treat: ICE POPS!

 

What you'll need: 

  • popsicle maker (I used the  Norpro Frozen Ice Pop Maker )
  • popsicle sticks
  • mixing bowl
  • 1 can coconut cream/milk
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries
  • honey/sweeter of choice (optional)

Directions: 

  1. Get a mixing bowl and empty your coconut cream in the bowl
  2. If you are adding any additional sweeter you will want to slightly warm the coconut cream on the stove to dissolve the sweeter. I added about 3 tbsp of honey to our to enhance the natural sweetness of the berries and cream. 
  3. Prep berries by slicing them in sizes that will fit into your pop maker.  I used a frozen mixed berry blend and made sure the bigger berries were sliced to fit. 
  4. Once you're all set now comes the fun part - the filling! Fill each section evenly, leaving about 1-1.5" at the top to keep room for the fruit. 
  5. Now stuff in your berries into each section. You can have fun with how you want the end result to look - keep it all at the top, or evenly mix down to the bottom, middle, and top. 
  6. Now place the top on and insert your popsicle sticks, remember to leave enough stick out to comfortably hold each pop! 
  7. Set in the freezer for 3-4 hrs or until completely frozen. 
  8. To get your pops out, fill your sink with warm/hot water enough to submerge 90% of the ice pop container. Submerge for 15-20 seconds, remove and wiggle out. 
  9. ENJOY!

The possibilities are endless when it comes to different flavoured ice pops - I'm super excited to try a matcha ice pop version on my next try!
