Highlights

It’s been so hot already this summer, so I decided to make some super easy popsicles. I just blended together a can of light coconut milk, cherries, vanilla, and maple syrup.

This treat is so perfect for a hot summer afternoon or evening. If you don’t have frozen sweet cherries on hand, you can actually use whatever berry or fruit you like, including strawberries, mango, peaches, blueberries, or pineapple.

Also, if you prefer to use a whole foods sweetener, you can leave out the maple syrup and use 1/2 cup of pitted dates instead.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Ideally, you’d have some molds in which to pour the mixture and make a traditionally shaped popsicles. I got this package of two BPA-free sets from Amazon that work great! I use them year after year. 

If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can use small cups and spoons or wooden sticks.

Step Two

Blend the coconut milk, frozen cherries, vanilla, and maple syrup.

Step Three

Divide the mixture between the molds and freeze for at least 4 hours. Serve cold.

You can blend dates with the mixture (you’ll need about 1/2 cup). Or, you can use whatever sweetener you like.

I think so! I don’t have kids so I haven’t kid-tested them. I assume if your kids like fruit-flavors, then they will like these!
