One of the benefits of being a teacher is, of course, summer vacation. But with my last day of school behind me, I have to say it hasn’t quite felt like summer in Chicago. The weather has been okay, but a little too cool. So, since it doesn’t look like Mother Nature is going to be helping me out anytime soon, I am taking matters into my own hands and making a summery treat–paleo popsicles. Enjoy!
Vita Coco pineapple flavored coconut water
Pour the coconut water into the popsicle molds and add the fruit. Let them freeze for several hours or overnight. Voila!
1 cup frozen strawberries
Put frozen strawberries into a food processor or blender. Pulse. Add coconut milk 1-2 tablespoons at a time until you have a creamy consistency. Pour this into the popsicle molds and let freeze for a few hours or overnight.
*I tend to buy coconut milk in the can, found in the International aisle at the grocery store. I have found that certain brands available in cartons have added ingredients, some of which I can’t pronounce, which is never a good sign.
The beauty of these popsicles is that you can use whatever fruit you have on hand. Next time I might add some frozen blueberries along with the frozen strawberries and coconut milk for a different flavor. Play around as you like!
