Stay hydrated and cool off on hot summer days with homemade Watermelon Berry Popsicles.
Watermelon Berry Popsicles
We’ve combined fresh watermelon, mint, lime juice, strawberries and coconut to create vegan, gluten free watermelon berry popsicles perfect for summer!
Why Coconut Milk
When we first created our watermelon berry popsicle recipe we were working with a gluten-free blogger. We wanted the popsicles to be flavourful and accessible to anyone with dietary restrictions.
These popsicles are dairy free, sugar free, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free making them a very desirable summer snack.
Popsicles, like smoothies, can be made using a variety of ingredients and we have definitely tried a few variations in all kinds of unique popsicle molds!
Consider fresh herbs like fresh basil instead of mint, dairy free milk or yogurt, fruit slices, cold brewed tea, chia seeds (allow to bloom), even nut butters. Make them as simple or complex as you like but be sure to make extra as they won’t last long.
Making the Popsicles
Once you have all your ingredients assembled and the molds ready, it’s time to make popsicles! We recommend using good quality popsicle molds as cheaper ones we’ve had over the years have broken or chipped.
- Invest in good quality popsicle molds. Forget the dollar store varieties as they don’t last.
- Add more fresh mint if you like mint.
- Make the day before you want to enjoy them.
- Replace mint with fresh basil.
- If no kids are involved you could add a little splash of coconut rum to the popsicle mix. We won’t tell.
