CARE Snack: Vegan Coconut Berry Popsicles

It’s summer. It’s hot. Anything cold sounds great. Anything sweet and cold sounds even better! So how about making popsicles that are loaded with antioxidants and fiber (and greens!), balanced to keep you satiated, and encourages you to eat more than one! Perfect for a long day in the yard or movie night instead instead of mindlessly snacking on candy! (This recipes is a simple take on the CARE Coconut Berry Smoothie.)

  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup strawberries, (frozen can be used)
  • 1 cup blueberries, (frozen can be used)
  • 1 cup raspberries, (frozen can be used)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (100% maple)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 cups of baby spinach (or baby kale)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor or blender, mix all ingredients and blend well
  2. Portion into popsicle mold and allow to freeze (1/2 cup mixture is one snack serving; number of popsicles per serving will depend on size of popsicle molds; average size is three popsicles per single serving)

Notes

  • Any fruit could be used with or instead of berries; just watch portion sizes.
  • I prefer canned coconut milk (usually found in Asian cooking aisle).
  • If using frozen berries, the saturated fat in the coconut milk will get firm. You could add a little more water or blend longer in the food processor/blender.
  • More details on ALL the remarkable nutrients in this recipes can read about here.
