Like these probiotic mango popsicles, these cool and creamy blueberry coconut milk popsicles make a healthy and tasty summertime treat. And on top of that, they are so simple to make that they only take a blender and five minutes!
Simple Coconut Milk Popsicles
Coconut milk is naturally slightly sweet and creamy and contains a variety of nutrients and healthy fats. Combined with the blueberries in this recipe, these popsicles pack in a good amount of vitamin C. These simple homemade popsicles provide a healthy, quick, and tasty substitute for the sugar-laden store-bought options and are a kid approved summertime treat.
And beyond tasting good, these popsicles also look delicious. The blueberry skins (high in antioxidants) give a natural bright purple color to this treat.
These blueberry coconut milk popsicles use fresh or frozen blueberries, but if you’re not a fan or just have a surplus of strawberries or mangoes, try mixing things up and make a different flavor!
Popsicle Mold Hacks
I found these awesome stainless steel popsicle molds that we use for elderberry popsicles during flu season and probiotic coconut mango popsicles when we have ripe mangoes to use.
If you don’t have or aren’t sure yet if you want to buy molds, there are several other options that most people have already in their kitchens. Try using small stainless steel drink cups, ice cube trays for little popsicles, or muffin tins. Just fill whichever container you choose to the desired level, freeze them just until the very top has frozen, and stick in the sticks. To unmold any popsicle, simply warm them on the outside of the mold for a moment, either with your hands or running warm water.
Another option I have seen is to make one large loaf pan shaped popsicle and slice it into individual popsicles, like in this post.
Coconut Blueberry Popsicles Recipe
