Ready for fall? Nope, not us! We are in total denial that summer is coming to a close. Absolute, complete denial. We are hitting the beach every chance we get and continuing to enjoy some of summer’s finest treats. I’m sharing our favorite three ingredient popsicle recipe that’s just as good as it is easy.
These have been on repeat the last few summers and the twins are now old enough to help me make them–with a lot of instruction, of course! These popsicles are a home run in my house–the kids literally beg me to make them. Not only are they super easy to make but they are also dairy free, vegan and very low sugar–making them perfect for an afternoon treat on a hot summer day.
These are also good if you have a little one that’s teething. I first started making these when the twins were getting their two year old molars and I know these frozen treats felt good to their sore gums. At that time, they had never had popsicles and it was so fun to watch their reactions. Their facial expressions as they try new foods are priceless–I find myself trying to memorize them all. I recently read that 80% of one’s tastebuds are inherited and I’m starting to see that with them.
This picture is from last summer when my babies were still wearing onesies.
Why do they have to grow up so fast? 😭
Three Ingredient Popsicle Recipe:
- 2 Cups Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk*
- 2 Cups Blueberries** (fresh or frozen)
- 1-2 table spoons maple syrup
*You can certainly make them with your favorite milk. We love them with goat milk, too!
**You can always throw in some strawberries too. I had some that were pretty ripe so I threw those in as well and just reduced the amount of blueberries accordingly.
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pour into your favorite popsicle molds. Don’t forget to leave some space at the top to allow the popsicles to expand as they freeze. Freeze for 6-8 hours. Remove from freezer and allow the popsicles to thaw for about a minute. Run some warm water over the molds to loosen up the popsicles. Wiggle the popsicles out of the molds and enjoy!
Depending on how many molds you have, you may have some of the mixture left over. I usually freeze what I have left in large ice cube molds and keep on hand for smoothies.
Happy (extended) summer, y’all! 🙂
