Patsy talks popsicles

It’s summer. Hot and sticky in our hemisphere. Houston is a veritable steam bath! But then . . . . you know.

How about something totally cool then — like popsicles? Yessss!

I love popsicles, don’t you? I especially love making popsicles. Vegan ones. Naturally!

Blackberry Coconut Lime, Strawberry Lime Yogurt Popsicle Recipes

I know I have already posted a great vegan recipe today but just couldn’t wait to tell you about these. I love homemade. You know what’s in it. And I am wondering how many of you, like me, had some popsicle molds tucked away and (mostly) forgotten. Let’s go!

Blackberry Coconut Lime Popsicles
Makes 6 small/4 large pops

1 can full-fat coconut milk
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups blackberries, rinsed and drained
1 lime, zested
1/4 cup lime juice
pinch salt

In a medium bowl, combine coconut milk, 1/4 cup honey, salt, and vanilla extract, and whisk to combine.

In a blender, puree blackberries, then pour through a fine-mesh strainer to remove seeds. With the back of a spoon or spatula, press berry pulp and seeds against the strainer to help extract all of the liquid. Discard the seeds. Add 1/2 cup of the coconut milk mixture and 1 tablespoon honey to the strained berries, and whisk.

Add the lime juice and zest to the remaining coconut milk mixture, and stir to combine.

Pour alternating layers of the coconut milk mixture and the berry mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze for about 30 minutes, then insert sticks and freeze until firm.

Notes
If you’re in a hurry, you could just strain the berries and throw everything together. You won’t have the pretty layers, but you also won’t get as many bowls dirty.
