Yayyyy! The freakin’ sun is out in Melbourne! You know what that means right? It’s ice cream and pop-my-sicle time! Today’s recipe is such a no brainer – Vegan Strawberries and Cream Popsicles. They are made with Coconut Cream, Strawberries, Vanilla Bean and of course, Cocobella Coconut Water. De-fkn-licious.
A week or two ago, the awesome folks over at Cocobella sent me a rad care package bursting with lots and lots and lotssssssssssss of their amazing coconut water. I was going to make a recipe with it for today’s giveaway but, erm, I drank it all in 3 days (Their stuff is wicked good!). So, naturally, I hopped my fat a$$ onto my Segway, rode into the supermarket and had to buy myself another fix for today’s Strawberries and Cream Popsicle recipe.
These Strawberries and Cream Popsicles are a little creamy, a little tart and perfect to lick on a sweltering day (amongst other things), and well, if you’re feeling really frisky, since it’s Spring in Australia, you could always bring one along with you to the bedroom. I kid, I kid…but hey, try it if you’re keen and tell me how it goes. Now onto the important stuff:

5 minPrep Time
5 minTotal Time
- 1/2 cup Coconut Cream
- Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt
- 4 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon Unrefined Cane Sugar
- 10 medium sized Strawberries, hulled
- 1 cup Cocobella Pure Coconut Water
- Seeds of 1/2 a Vanilla Pod
- In a Vitamix or any high speed blender, blend all ingredients till fully emulsified.
- Pour into popsicle molds and leave to freeze for at least 5 hours before releasing from mold.
- If you are using wooden sticks, freeze the popsicles for 20 minutes before popping the stick in.
Notes & Other Shyt You Need To Know
I find that the best way to remove popsicles from the molds are to dip it in hot water for 10 seconds before attempting to pull them out. If they still don't budge, dip for another 10 seconds or until they pop out easily.
