Berry Coconut Pops

Berry Coconut Pops

There is a very short period of time around here in which you can find both locally grown ripe strawberries and blueberries at the same time, and I was lucky enough to come home with some recently and made these berry coconut pops with them.  They are really easy and delicious.  And, they are non-dairy if you are trying to avoid dairy.  And, in addition to all of that, they are pretty, and red, white, and blue – perfect for your upcoming Independence Day celebration.

The recipe is almost not even a recipe.  I mean I didn’t even measure the blueberries and strawberries.  I just dropped some blueberries in the bottom of the popsicle molds and then sliced the strawberries and added them.  I ended up with about twice the amount of coconut mixture as I needed, so this mixture will make about twenty pops.  Of course, I only had molds for ten, so I froze the rest of the coconut mixture in a muffin tin thinking it would be great for pina colodas.  I’ll let you know how that turns out.  Anyway, I wrote the recipe for 20.

Also, the berries were a bit tart.  I like the contrast of the tartness against the sweet coconut, but if you want an overall sweetness, you could sprinkle the strawberries with sugar before adding them.

Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 2 13.5 oz. cans coconut milk (I used one regular and one light.)
  • 1 15 oz. can cream of coconut
  • blueberries
  • strawberries, sliced
Instructions
  1. Whisk together coconut milk and cream of coconut until well blended.
  2. Place a few blueberries in each mold. I put about 10 in each depending on the size of the berries.
  3. Place strawberry slices in the mold. I used about 2 berries for each pop, but my strawberries were small.
  4. Pour coconut mixture over the berries, filling to the fill line.
  5. Freeze until frozen.
  6. Unmold pops and eat.
