Coconut Creamsicles {Dairy-free}

Oh.my.word. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that these homemade coconut creamsicles are hands-down the easiest popsicle to make and quite possibly, the tastiest. I had leftover coconut milk from making my banana split bites the other day and while I was thinking of what I could do with the rest of it, I remembered my cute little neglected popsicle molds. I quickly grabbed them from under the counter, filled them up and stuck them in the freezer. I just tasted one and sweet mercy! You have to try these. The first bite, will catapult your mind to a tropical paradise, bare feet covered in sand, the smell of suntan oil {does anyone use that anymore? We’re all about SPF 50 in this house!} and relaxing with a thick novel while listening to that wonderful sound of the ocean. Ahhhhhh……. don’t wake me up.

Mix together 1 can of light coconut milk and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Mix on high speed for about a minute. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze overnight.

See, I told you it was easy. Can’t wait to let my little girls try one!

All Natural Strawberry-Banana Popsicles {allergy-free}

I have been wanting some popsicle molds for awhile now and when World Market sent me $10 for my birthday, I headed over to see what I could find. There were several things I liked, but when I saw these I decided I would buy them with part of my money. These are so fun and the girls love them. I had some strawberries, apples and bananas that needed to be eaten so I decided to experiment. This is what I came up with…

All Natural Strawberry-Banana Popsicles {allergy-free}

2 cups fresh strawberries, {1 cup washed and sliced, 1 cup washed and tops cut off}

1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup 100% apple juice

2 T Agave Nectar

Put 1 cup sliced strawberries and bananas in a blender.

Pour apple juice on top. {If you don’t have any juice, you can juice your own apples. I juiced 3 small apples and got exactly 1/2 cup. Skim the foam off the top with a spoon. Then, pour juice into blender.} Juice 1 cup whole strawberries – or more if you like! – and pour into blender. Add Agave Nectar.

Put the lid on the blender and pulse until you get a smooth texture.

Pour juice mixture into popsicle molds, put in freezer for a couple of hours until popsicles are set.

Serve!

These popsicles are loaded with fruit and are great for snacktime, breakfast, dessert….anytime! Consider each one 1-2 servings of fruit.
