Raspberry Coconut Popsicles
Before I share this recipe with you, I’d like to inform you that you are not ready for these popsicles. These are by far the most delicious popsicles I have ever had, and I consider myself one to have tried many. Call me the popsicle lady if you will. This recipe came to me while I was driving around in the heat of Dubai’s summer wondering how to cool off. I considered grabbing an ice-cream from McDonalds, but I’ve really been trying to stick to a healthier diet so surprisingly, I convinced myself not to. I really wanted something cold, refreshing, delicious but healthy all at once. And nowadays if you want that, you’ve got to make it yourself. And so I did.
The ingredients are simple, healthy, and fresh so you don’t have to feel guilty whilst enjoying every bite. I always find it fun to make popsicles because they look adorable and you can get very creative with how they turn out. You can buy popsicle moulds from literally anywhere, and they come in very cute shapes. If you’re into DIY projects, then you can customise the ice-cream stick that you use. Simply grab a pen or a marker and write or draw something on the end of the ice-cream stick and then push the opposite side into the popsicle and wait for it to freeze! I’m definitely going to try that for my next popsicle recipe, and I’m sure kids would just love it!
a handful of raspberries
juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut milk
2 cups of greek yogurt
a pinch of salt
In a bowl, mix the berries with the lime juice and 1 tbsp of sugar. Let sit for 15 mins then mash the berries with a fork.
In a separate bowl, milk together the coconut milk, greek yoghurt, 2.5 tbsp sugar, and a pinch of salt. Mix in the berries with the juice, and do not stir completely. You want streaks of purple in the yoghurt so that the popsicles come out looking pretty like those.
Fill in the popsicle moulds and freeze for about 30 mins, then insert the ice-cream sticks halfway.
Freeze the popsicles until solid – overnight worked for me.
To unmould, dip the popsicles in running water and wait a few seconds and then pull out.
