Sparking Berries and Cream Popsicles
These Sparking Berries and Cream Popsicles are a refreshingly easy frozen treat, and perfect for your 4th of July celebration. The fresh berry puree is spiked with sparkling water for a fun, effervescent bite!
Servings: 4 Popsicles
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, lightly pureed
- 1 cup fresh blueberries, lightly pureed
- 1/2 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk, full fat
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup sparkling water, berry flavored
In a blender, puree the strawberries first, then the blueberries. Pour each into separate cups and add 1/4 cup of the sparkling water to each. You will probably have extra berry juice, depending on the size of your popsicle molds. Use the extra as a flavored sparkling water or add to a smoothie!
For the coconut milk, shake the can so the liquid and coconut solids mix. Open the can and stir as needed. Pour 1/2 cup of the coconut milk into a cup and add the maple syrup. Stir until combined. Add more or less maple syrup to your sweetness preference.
Start with the strawberry juice and pour equal amounts into each of the popsicle molds, 1/3 full. Place the uncovered popsicle mold in the freezer and allow the strawberry liquid to freeze for at least 30 minutes - this is so the next layer does not seep into the layer below it. Follow with the coconut milk, pour equal amounts 2/3 full, freeze for 30 minutes. Finish with the blueberry juice and place the sticks into the molds and freeze until solid - about 3 more hours.
