Servings 6 popsicles
- 12 oz frozen fruit i used mixed berries
- 3/4 cup cashew milk (or coconut yogurt)
- 1 large orange squeezed
- 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp maple syrup OPTIONAL to taste
- 2 tsp lime or lemon juice freshly squeezed
Prepare 6 popsicle molds and 6 popsicle wooden sticks.
Reserve 1/4 cup of the cashew milk and a few berries.
In the bowl of a food processor or Vitamin blender process the frozen berries with the orange and lime juice, 1/2 cup of cashew milk, vanilla extract and the maple syrup until a nice rustic texture is achieved. (Pour the mixture into a pitcher with a spout for easy pouring).
Add a couple of the reserved berries to each popsicle mold, top with a little splash of the reserved cashew milk and fill with the fruit popsicle mix. Finish with a little splash of cashew milk but leave approximately 1/4 inch of space at the top. Repeat the process with the remaining Popsicles.
Freeze your popsicles for 4 to 6 hours until set. Remove from the molds and serve on ice garnished with basil, mint or edible flowers.
- To prevent popsicle drips on a super hot day use some paper cupcake liners with a slit in the bottom and place the popsicle stick through it. It will catch all the sticky drips before hitting your floors or worse your carpet. You’re welcome kids!
- For easy removal make sure to keep the popsicle mold under some hot running water for about 20 seconds. For a few popsicles is best to fill a bowl with the hot water so you can do them all at the same time.
