Blackberry Coconut Cream Popsicle

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Summer is here!  It is now the norm to find the temperature in the 3 digit format.  I am from Alaska, I am used to double-digit weather, even single digit… but triple digit weather??!!   To help cool our inner cores I made some creamy Popsicles that only require 4 ingredients!  It can’t get too much easier than that.  If you too are living in warmer climates, keep the following in mind:

  • Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day to prevent dehydration.  Water, fruit juices and juice drinks are best.  Do not wait until you are thirsty to drink.  Parents should be sure children get sufficient fluids as well.
  • Eat healthy Blackberry Coconut Cream Popsicles!
  • Minimize alcohol and caffeine because they dehydrate the body.
  • Eat healthy Blackberry Coconut Cream Popsicles!
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.  When spending time outdoors, avoid direct sunlight, wear a hat and use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) greater than 15 to protect yourself against sunburn.
  • Eat healthy Blackberry Coconut Cream Popsicles!
  • Slow down and avoid strenuous activity.  If you must do strenuous activity, do it during the early morning or late evening hours when it is cooler.

Yields 9 / 3 oz Dixie cups

Ingredients for Coconut Layer:

 Ingredients for Blackberry Layer:

  • 10 oz frozen blackberries, thawed (buy organic only!)
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar

Preparation:

  1. In the blender combine the ingredients for the coconut layer and pour into a separate container so you can blend the blackberry layer.
  2. Combine the ingredients in the blender to make the blackberry layer.  Blend until nice and creamy.  As an option (which I did)  I strained the blackberry mixture through a nut bag to remove the seeds.
  3. Snip the top edge of the Dixie cups with scissors for easy peeling.
  4. Fill by alternating the coconut and blackberry layer till the cup is full.
  5. I poked the Popsicle stick into one of the blackberries to help it stand in place, not to mention a fun surprise to find in the center of the Popsicle.  Place the stick in the middle of each Popsicle and freeze 4-5 hours before serving.
