Hello joyous peeps!
I did a segment on the Morning Show recently sharing some tips for making summer treats healthier (vid below). I featured my pops as you can see in the photo above. They might look freezer burnt but it's because it was STEAMING hot on our balcony where we took the photo. The pops were sweating and overheating! Ha!
When I was doing research for this segment I was not surprised to see ingredients such as food dyes, artificial flavours and sugar, sugar, sugar making up the large majority of ingredients in a plethora of frozen treats in grocery stores. This is why I create recipes for you that are easy to make, from simple and whole ingredients.
This first popsicle recipe will make you salivate from the fresh lime citrus kick and remind you of your grandmother's key lime pie! I combined the best of both worlds... comfort food and health.
All my popsicle recipes are dairy-free, sugar-free, junkfood free, nothing artificial -- just pure whole goodness!
I like these pops pretty "lime-y" tasting, so hold back on the lime juice to half a lime if you like.
Don't forget to pop in the wooden stick! You might want to let it get a little solid before inserting the stick so it doesn't sink to the bottom.
Of course once you get into the swing of making these wonderful popsicles it's hard to stop! I also made some pineapple strawberry popsicles too.
Place the stick in after popsicle has been freezing for a couple of hours so the stick doesn't sink to the bottom.
Have you tried my Avocado Matcha Popsicles from my book Joyous Health yet? They taste like green tea ice cream!
Have a joyous day!
These look scrumptious, Joy, and I love the incredibly short list of ingredients! Pure, natural foods but still indulgent and de-lish! Thank you!Reply
These look scrumptious - but would you please figure out something like this but in chocolate? Pretty please?Reply
Hi Heather, I'll pass your request along to Joy. :) Kate - Joyous Health Team
I tried to locate a "full-fat" coconut milk recipe. Is there one I should purchase? Or what do you suggest?Reply
Hi Linda, Full-fat coconut milk is the type that comes in a can (as opposed to a box) and doesn't say "light" or "lite" on the can. Kate - Joyous Health Team
Here's the recipe that my household LOVES: Peaches and cream Popsicles 1 can full fat coconut milk 1 small can evaporated milk 1 small can sweetened condensed milk 1 - 1 1/2 cup milk of your choice (dairy, etc. - I used Silk Coconut milk) 1 - 1 1/2 cup honey greek yogurt (I use Trader Joe’s) 2+ cups of fresh fruit chopped (I used peaches and a bit of strawberries, but you can use really any fresh fruit) Makes about 12 - 16 popsiclesReply
Hi Joy! Thanks for this awesome recipe! Can you tell me what brand of Popsicle molds you use? Thanks so much! Enjoy the rest of the summer! FarzanaReply
Hi Farzana! Zoku makes some great popsicle molds. One thing to look for when shopping for popsicle molds, is to make sure that they are BPA free :) Heather- Joyous Health Team
I sadly have a coconut allergy, can you recommend any substitutions?Reply
Hi Sandy! You could use any other nut milk. Cashew milk would be a nice sub because it's rich and creamy. Hope that helps!
