These popsicles were so fun and delicious! It's the time of year when things are getting hot and with all the unicorn craze going around, I thought a purple/pink/mango popsicle would be the ultimate solution.
2 Vanilla Coconut Yogurts (you could also use homemade)
1 tsp each freeze dried fruit powders* (I used raspberry, blueberry, and mango, but you could do pineapple, strawberry, banana, or other flavors)
*To make the powder, you blend up a bag of freeze dried fruit into a powder. Make sure your blender is completely dry and clean out with a dry towel in between flavors so you don't get it wet.
Divide your yogurt into three bowls and add a teaspoon of fruit powder to each one.
Add a teaspoon at a time of each flavor into the popsicle molds (I like this silicone one because you can see the patterns you are making) in a random pattern, then swirl with a toothpick to create a pretty pattern. Freeze for 2 or more hours.
Maybe it's just the Louisiana heat, but I feel like I just can't get enough popsicle molds in my life. I just got a new one that I have to share with you, along with my "recipe" (har har).
So, first of all, the molds. I love that they are silicone and peel away from the popsicle rather than the typical ones you need to run hot water over until they disengage from the mold. They also have that pretty classic "ice cream popsicle" look/shape, which I like.
For my first try, I made an ice cream bar of sorts.
First, I put 3 frozen bananas through my Champion Juicer with the blank screen for ice cream making (like in my Rainbow Sherbet recipe). You could also blend up frozen bananas with some plant milk in a blender or food processor.
I filled the popsicle molds with the banana ice cream and then froze for a couple hours. Then I melted down some Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips with a little coconut oil and maple syrup to make a fluid melted chocolate to coat the popsicles with. I spread the chocolate over each popsicle and sprinkled withIndia Tree sprinkles and served put back in freezer until the kids finished dinner.
The kids loved them! The chocolate was a little rich and thick, so I think next time I'll use more coconut oil when melting down the chocolate chips. I'm also thinking about trying other ice cream fillings. Very fun and delicious.
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!
