Recently I’ve been creating various popsicles for my little great nephews and nieces as a healthy treat or after dinner dessert. So far, they have loved every single one! Here is a new recipe including some of their favorite fruits and berries. It is free of preservatives, fillers and thickeners - no need for any of these things. Everything is organic, fresh and healthy.
Can’t wait to share these with the 5 loves of my life!
Yields: 12 popsicles
Prep Time: 10 min
2 cups almond milk (can substitute with coconut milk or a combination of both)
1 cup organic fresh blueberries
1/2 cup organic fresh cherries, pitted
1 peach, peeled, cut in half, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup cocojune organic cultured pure coconut yogurt
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Evenly divide the mixture between molds, making sure to leave about 1/4” of space at the top of the mold to allow the popsicles to expand in the freezer. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for 5 to 6 hours.
Remove from freezer and run molds under warm water to help the popsicles loosen.
About the fruits and berries….
First, in case you were wondering, all berries are fruit but not all fruits are berries 😊
Blueberries, cherries, and peaches are considered “superfoods” due to their numerous health benefits and nutritional profile. They are low in calories, high in fiber and full of antioxidants.
Bananas - this ‘superfruit’ is loaded with vitamins and minerals and is easy to digest.
Coconut Yogurt has been shown to aid in digestive health but not all coconut yogurt is the same. We use Cocojune yogurt. It is one of our favorites for various reasons:
They use certified organic plant-based ingredients
Aids in digestive health
Is science based
And is 100% free from GMOs and toxic pesticides
Oh, and it’s delicious!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
