Number 1: Hawaiian Cream Popsicles
one 14 oz can of coconut milk (I used lite)
1 cup of fresh pineapple (cut into tidbits)
1 cup of fresh diced mango
3-4 TBS of sugar (depending on the sweetness of the fruit). I used sugar in the raw.
If you are using wooden popsicle sticks soak them in water for about 10-15 minutes. This helps the wooden sticks stay in place and not float to the top.
Next, blend one 14 oz can of coconut milk (I used lite), 1 cup of fresh pineapple (cut into tidbits), 1 cup of fresh diced mango, 1 banana, and 3-4 TBS of sugar (depending on the sweetness of the fruit). I used sugar in the raw.
Lastly, pour the mixture into popsicle molds, insert popsicles sticks, and freeze until solid.
This recipe makes approximately 10 Hawaiian Cream Popsicles.

1 cup plain yogurt, use coconut milk yogurt to keep vegan & Dairy-Free
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place chopped peaches and pitted cherries in a separate glass baking pans (large enough so the fruit can spread out in a single layer). Drizzle each pan of fruit with one tablespoon of maple syrup (or favorite sweetener) and toss to combine. Transfer baking dishes to the oven and cook for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly and hot, rotating pans once halfway through cooking. Remove roasted fruit from the oven and set aside to cool completely.
Once cool, transfer the cherries, along with a pinch of lime zest and 1/4 cup coconut milk to the bowl of a blender or food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
Rinse out the blender with water and repeat the above process with the peaches. Transfer blended mixture to a bowl and set aside.
Rinse out the blender, and add the remaining coconut milk, yogurt, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, lime juice, any remaining lime zest and shredded coconut to the bowl. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Layer the cherry, coconut, and peach mixture into the popsicle molds. Cover and freeze for at least 2-4 hours. For easy removal, run bottom part of popsicle mold under warm water for 10-15 seconds and wiggle it free!

Number 9: Strawberry, Banana + Coconut Milk Popsicles
Yields 10-12 Popsicles
1 pound strawberries, hulled and halved
2 Tablespoons honey, plus additional to taste
2 medium bananas
1 (13.5 ounce) can full fat coconut milk
Add the strawberries and two tablespoons of honey to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer about 8-9 minutes, continuing to stir frequently. The strawberries should break down and the mixture should reduce and thicken slightly.
Remove from heat and allow the strawberry mixture to cool for a few minutes.
Add the bananas, coconut milk and strawberry mixture to a blender. Blend until smooth. Add an additional tablespoon or two of honey if desired. (It should taste slightly sweeter than how you’d normally prefer a smoothie, because the sweetness will mellow when frozen.)
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until solid, about 3-4 hours. If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can use ice cube trays or small paper cups. When the mixture is slightly frozen (after about 1 hour), stick a plastic spoon or wooden popsicle stick in each serving and continue to freeze until solid.

2 1/2 cups blueberries (frozen or fresh)

Number 11: Coconut Lime Popsicles
To make these look extra pretty, add a little fresh lime zest to the outside right before serving (like I did in the photos).
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 2 cups (about 6-7 popsicles)
1 (13oz) can full-fat coconut milk
zest and juice of 1 lime
3–4 Tbsp honey or agave
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until completely smooth. This won’t seem to take long, but the longer you process, the finer the zest will become and the less likely you’ll be to end up with all the zest sinking to the bottom of the popsicle mold.
Taste and add additional honey or lime as desired. (Note that the flavor will develop as they freeze.)
Pour mixture into your popsicle mold and insert sticks.
Freeze at least 3 hours or until completely solid.
