Strawberry Coconut Milk Popsicles
Light, bright and bursting with fresh flavor, these Strawberry Coconut Milk Popsicles make the ultimate warm weather treat!
These coconut milk popsicles are cool, refreshing, and they’re rich and decadent in an elegant sort of way.
Made with coconut milk and frozen strawberries, these healthy popsicles are dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in toasted pistachio nuts. If you’re not a fan of pistachio nuts, then feel free to sub in your favorite nut (hazelnuts, almonds, etc). Or forego the chocolate and nuts altogether and just enjoy the simple pop of flavor of an unadorned strawberry. These homemade strawberry popsicles are perfect on their own, but when they are decorated, they will remind you of chocolate dipped strawberries. And who doesn’t love a plump and juicy chocolate dipped strawberry now and then!
If you’re looking for homemade popsicle recipes to make this summer, you”ll want to add this one to the top of your short list.. They taste like summer on a stick. And since they’re made with frozen strawberries and not fresh, we can indulge ourselves all year long!
No popsicle maker, no problem. To make these Strawberry Coconut Milk Popsicles, just use small Dixie paper cups and wooden sticks, then peel away the paper and dip in chocolate and roll in nuts. It’s all good – they taste the same either way!!
