Yes, we realize popsicles are the summer dessert du jour, but we just couldn’t help ourselves from jumping on the bandwagon! They’re the perfect treat to help cool down and you can just pop them out of the freezer whenever you feel like indulging. The kids love them, sure, but we’re loving the resurrected idea that you don’t need to be five years old, covered in dirt and dripping in sugar to enjoy them. While the adult {aka alcoholic!} recipes are enticing, the fact that I get drunk off of one sip of wine these days makes, the idea of snacking on a healthy popsicle even better. Not convinced? Well you must try this recipe!

Berry Coconut Milk + Honey Popsicles

serving size: 12 popsicles

1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries
24 mint leaves
4 cups coconut milk
2 cups coconut water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2-1 cup granola

In a big bowl mix coconut milk, coconut water (straining is optional) and honey.

Next, plop berries of choice and 2 mint leaves in each popsicle form {we used this one and love it!}. Next fill popsicle forms to the top with coconut mixture.* Freeze for 3 hours or overnight. Once frozen, remove popsicles from forms and dip 1/3 of each popsicle in yogurt. Roll dipped area in granola and place on baking sheet. Freeze for another 30 minutes. When it’s time to eat, drizzle with honey for extra sweetness and enjoy!!

*Tip: The berries will float to the top of the popsicle forms, meaning all of the berries will end up at the bottom of your popsicle, near the stick. If you’d like berries to be throughout the popsicle, follow the recipe, only filling forms half way, freeze for two hours, then repeat.

While we’re digging this delicously healhty recipe, the options are literally endless. Instead of coconut milk, use almond milk. Dip them in dark chocolate. Dip them in chia seeds! When it comes to healthy popsicles and they are admittedly, SO fun to make – you can play like you’re a kid again. If you don’t have popsicle forms yet, you’re missing out on quintessential summer fun. Get yours now and do share what popsicle recipe is your fave to make!
