Creamy Raspberry Paleo Popsicles

I don’t know about you, but I’m holding onto summer for as long as I can. My freezerful of popsicles should help prolong that summer feeling. Of course, I had to create a paleo friendly popsicle before we roll into September.

Creamy popsicles are my favourite, and these are no exception. These raspberry, coconut milk and vanilla popsicles scream summer, and are a delicious, healthy and refreshing treat to have on hand. Make a few batches of these and you won’t have to say goodbye to summer any time soon.

Ingredients:

(Makes approx. 8 popsicles)

  • 3/4 pounds raspberries
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped out
  • juice of 1/2 lime

Preparation:

1) Place coconut milk, honey, vanilla bean pod and seeds, and lime juice in a small pot.

2) Over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, bring coconut milk mixture to a boil.

3) Remove from heat, cover, and allow to steep for 20 minutes.

4) Allow coconut milk mixture to cool, remove the vanilla bean pod, and place the mixture in the fridge to cool completely.

5) Place raspberries in a food processor, and process until pureed. Allow the raspberries to chill in the fridge.

6) Pour the raspberry puree into the coconut milk mixture, stirring just to barely combine. Not over combining will create a subtle marbled effect.

7) Pour popsicle mixture into molds*. Place popsicle molds in the freezer and allow them to freeze for a minimum of 6 hours. To remove popsicles from molds, quickly run some warm water over each mold.

*I recommend using stainless steel popsicle molds.

Do you think frozen berries would work? These are gorgeous! I’m, however, wishing fall would come soon – I wasn’t born for this sub-tropical climate I’m living in!

Hi Kate. I haven’t tried the recipe with frozen berries, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work – I would recommend thawing the berries to make them easier to process. As for the weather, it never gets very hot in Vancouver, so I can see how you could get tired of it if it’s overly hot where you live. The hottest we get here is around 30 degrees celsius, and that’s rare.
