Here in Australia, the heat is truly upon us. While we love the warmer months, the sweatiness of it all can get a little overbearing. In times like these, a popsicle certainly wouldn’t go astray. But we're not talking your average frozen treat. No no, if we’re going to treat ourselves we’re going to do it the best way we know how: with creamy coconutty homemade popsicles that are as easy on the eye as they are on the palette.
This is one recipe we can genuinely say is melt-in-your-mouth amazing. Super cute and super simple to make, the hardest part about it is merely having to wait. If you find yourself eagerly checking the freezer to see if your popsicles have set, don’t feel bad as we did the exact same thing ;)
This is also an awesome vegan alternative to the dairy-containing pops that are uber popular among children (and adults too, let’s be real), if not a little more gourmet. If you have little ones following in your dietary footsteps, this is a surefire way to make sure they aren’t missing out on the summer fun. We believe when switching diets, you shouldn’t have to turn your back on the foods that make you happy, simply adapt them!
For added flavour and a stunning visual element that takes these treats to a whole new level, we created a sweet coconut drizzle to dress these pretty little pops in. We went for a simple criss-cross design but of course you can decorate them however you like, anything is popsicle so let your inner Picasso take the lead!
