It’s almost summer for you guys but, here in the Caribbean, it’s always hot. So every day has perfect popsicle weather! Even when it’s raining. This strawberry blueberry popsicle recipe is a real favorite in my home. It’s quick, easy, healthy and refreshing.
Strawberry Blueberry Popsicle Recipe
This recipe has just four ingredients: strawberries, blueberries, coconut water and brown sugar.
We don’t get fresh berries here. Being the amateur gardener and little experimenter I am, I tried growing strawberries once. It never bore fruit though. Apparently they grow best in colder climates with acidic soil. That’s not going to happen in my garden. It was a blistering 95 degrees today (and everyday!).
So I used organic frozen berries in this recipe.
Coconut, on the other hand, is everywhere. There are lots of fruits stalls that sell fresh green and yellow coconuts. You can also get a 2-liter bottle for $8 and the vendors will cut the coconuts in front of you.
If you are lucky, the nuts may have jelly in it. It’s sweet, delicious and adds a wonderful taste to the water. The jelly is what hardens over time to form coconut meat (which we use to make coconut milk … and coconut oil).
I added sugar to this recipe because the frozen berries aren’t always sweet. But the sweetener is totally optional. Plus you can switch it with your favorites like honey or agave.
That’s it! So simple, easy and delicious.
Each popsicle is a great paleo-friendly, dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian snack. Plus it is healthy since berries are rich sources of Vitamin C and other important antioxidants.
By the way, I made six… but only two were left for photos! Heh!
P.S. Make sure your molds are BPA free. Or you can use stainless steel ones too. There are so many safe options on Amazon. These are cute:
