It's summer, which means it's hot!!  How about these little babies for you or your kids or to take to a 4th of July celebration to cool everyone off.  I use the same base for these as my Red, White & Blue mojito and then add a creamy finish at the end with coconut milk.  And how cute are these little rocket pop molds?!  Hope you love these as much as I do, I can't keep them in my house longer than a day.

Strawberry base:

  • 1/2 pint strawberries (washed and hulled)
  • 1/2 lime
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp honey

Place all ingredients in the blender.  Blend until smooth.  Strain through a mesh sieve and set aside.

Coconut base:

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp  vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey

Place in blender and combine all ingredients.  

Fill molds half way with strawberry puree and set in freezer until set (about 2 hours).  Gently pull out popsicle (I run them under warm water to loosen them first), ladle in coconut mixture and place back in the freezer to let set.  It's that simple!

Lately I have been CRAVING anything cold!  Seriously, I'm finding myself at Pressed Juicery getting their freezes and pineapple mint juice WAY too often!  This is a healthy, naturally sweetened way to save myself money and a trip to the mall for my cravings.   Oh and I love that it's a healthy snack I don't have to feel guilty running back to the freezer for.  These also make a great addition to cocktails!  Enjoy!

3 Ingredient Strawberry Pops

  • 1 container ripe strawberries, washed & hulled
  • 2-3 Tbsp raw honey (depending on sweetness)
  • 1 can coconut milk (including the cream from the top of the can)

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender.  Pulse until combined and small chunks of strawberry remain.  Add coconut chips if you like a little extra texture.  Spoon into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.  Makes 6-8 popsicles depending on size of molds.  Enjoy!

I know, 3 ingredients hardly seems like a recipe, but that is the beauty of fresh, sweet produce!  I was inspired after a trip to my locals Farmer's Market and the brightest sweetest strawberries I've ever tasted.  I bought way too many, and wasn't in the mood for anything that required heating the kitchen up and viola, these bad boys were born.  I'm really on a popsicle kick with this current heatwave, so stay tuned for more, but in the meantime, it doesn't get a whole lot better than these bad boys.  They're naturally sweetened, creamy and oh so fresh!
