I just made this up today (after seeing people mix blueberries & coconut milk for popsicles)  and thought some lemon and salt may add some pizazz to this idea. The three people that live with me tried this tonight and they all said  “wow. This is really good!” You’ll dig it too, I have no doubt.

 

Use as popsicles for adults, a fancy cubed ice cream, cubes for kids or babies teething, cubes/pucks for smoothies

 

Super easy. Cool treat for summer. Totally tasty.
Dress it up or dress it down. Dairy Free. Minimal added sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
  • 1 can organic coconut milk (13.5 fl oz can)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt   (I prefer Real Salt)

Steps:

  1. Use food processor or blender (I use a vitamix) and pour the coconut milk in

  2. Add in all other ingredients (Feel free to add lemon juice, maple syrup, and salt in increments to your taste-liking)

  3. If using a high speed blender, blend for just a moment and quickly stop to leave it chunky so the blueberries don’t blend entirely. If using a food processor, use your judgment to blend just enough to lightly mix ingredients.

  4. Pour in to popsicle cavities (enough for 4) and extra leftover OR pour in to a silicone cube tray or muffin tray to make “pucks” for smoothies, etc.

  5. Enjoy. and enjoy.

  I prefer organic coconut milk (and organics whenever possible!), but especially with coconut milk & milk substitute products because of the potential for nasty additives
