Coconut Milk Lime Raspberry Pops


Feeling a little bit hot and lazy, anyone? Sunshine summer just makes me want to jump in a cool green lake, dry off, put on my oversized sunglasses and an old hat, read some trashy magazines and eat snacks and drink a cool drink, get hot again then jump right back in. You can be extra lazy but still enjoy a beautiful, icy, rich and tangy homemade popsicle with this super simple recipe. You can also substitute the coconut milk for some rich, plain yogurt. The consistency of this pop is a bit on the ice-milky side. The coconut milk is pretty rich but the acid from the lime and raspberry gives it a tang. You can play around with the amount of sweetened condensed milk too - I prefer not-too-sweet. These popsicles are so darn easy they should really be called Lazy Pops... whisk 'n pour into molds...!

{Coconut Milk Lime Raspberry Pops!}

In a medium sized bowl, whisk to combine 1 can of good quality coconut milk with the juice of 1 lime, 3 tbs raspberry jam, 8 cut-up raspberries, a pinch of salt and 1/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk.

Pour mixture into ice pop molds and freeze until solid. Run under hot water briefly to loosen before pulling out your pops!

Enjoy the rest of your summer, everyone! ^__^
