I couldn’t let the summer go by without sharing a popsicle recipe. It’s the time of the year when you gotta soak up the sun and ice cream, both in equal amounts. And if there is an option for a healthy Vegan popsicles then who is to say no.
These popsicles use a combination of fresh coconut cream and full fat coconut milk and are super duper simple to make. Barring the Chocolate Vegan popsicle recipe – all the others (we have 4 flavours for you today) do not need an elaborate procedure. All you need is a blender along with fresh fruits and a handful of ingredients.
Mangoes are fresh in season and hence a mango flavoured Vegan Popsicle had to be on the list. Chocolate is very popular with children – so couldn’t not do the chocolate. There had to be an all season popsicle too – so strawberry made its way in and pineapple and turmeric popsicle is for those looking to maximize health in a #fun way.
All of the Vegan popsicles are also Paleo (coz duh) and barring the chocolate all the others are also AIP compliant.
Like most of my recipes these Vegan Popsicles are also a versatile. You can choose to add more fruit, sweetener and of course use more chocolate to suit your taste and play around accordingly.
Now, I know a lot of you might be skeptical about a coconut based dessert due to its peculiar flavour. However, you will have to trust me that these do not and I repeat DO NOT taste anything like coconut. These are all kid and picky eaters approved.
This is also a great activity do to with kids. I made my first batch of Mango popsicles with my daughter and she was so excited about mixing things and putting them into the popsicle mould. Kids absolutely love these things.
And, if you do not have a mould do not worry. Simply dump the liquid in a paper cup and secure it with a cling wrap tightly before pushing the the popsicle stick and you will end up with a cute looking mini bucket pops. The best part about the paper cup is that you can simply tear away the cup enjoy the popsicles immediately.
It’s fun either way.
