Homemade popsicles are the easiest and most stress-free recipes I make with my kids. They love every aspect from choosing flavors and colors to pouring the juice. It doesn't come with a huge time commitment and the only down side is having to wait patiently for them to freeze! Below is our favorite popsicle recipe and in honor of our Canadian roots and Canada Day we added strawberry puree to represent Canada's colors.
1 (13.5 oz can) full fat coconut milk
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut flakes
1 cup heavy cream
1 (14 oz can) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup strawberries
Combine coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream and shredded coconut in a blender and mix until all the ingredients are smooth.
Next blend the strawberries into a puree. Pour 3/4 of inch of strawberry puree into the bottom of each popsicle mould. Slowly fill the rest of the mould with the coconut mixture. Be sure to pour very slowly so as not to mix up the puree in the bottom. Or if you desire, use a toothpick to swirl the puree into the coconut mixture for a more marbled look.
Freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight. To remove popsicles run the mold under warm water until the popsicle slides out.
To make this recipe for 4th of July add some whole blueberries into the coconut cream mixture for a pop of blue!
