Tutorial: Coconut Raspberry Ice Pops

These days you’re lucky if the ice cream truck passes through your neighborhood. Really lucky. Coconut Raspberry Ice Pops-Mama's High Strung When I was younger, we would chase the “ice cream man” down the street so we could find a little relief from the scorching West Texas sun. I can still taste that deliciously cold coconut ice pop and feel it slowly dripping down my hand. Pure magic. Sadly, there are no trucks in our neighborhood. But I can still recreate a little bit of the fun with these Coconut Raspberry Ice Pops. I added fruit because it really makes the cold treats POP! For this recipe, I used Nopro’s Ice Pop Maker that makes 10 3-ounce ice pops. If you don’t have an ice pop mold, go old-school and pour them into a paper cup or an ice cube tray. What memories. What magic.

Coconut Raspberry Ice Pops-Mama's High Strung  
prep: 15 minutes (plus 5 hours or more in the freezer)  

you’ll need…  
¾ cup coconut water 
¼ cup sugar 
1 can (12.5 ounces) coconut milk (low-fat or lite work well, too!) 
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract 
¾ cup shredded coconut 
1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries  

let's get to it...  

Stir coconut water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.  

Pour coconut milk, vanilla and shredded coconut into a blender container. Pulse blend for 30-seconds to 1 minute. Add the cooled coconut water and sugar mixture to the blender and pulse blend for 30 seconds.  

Divide raspberries evenly between pop molds (about 1 tablespoon each pop, more or less depending on the size of the berries). Pour the coconut mixture evenly into each mold. Insert sticks and freeze until solid, about 5 hours.  

Tip: Blueberries, black berries and strawberries also work great!
