Vegan Popsicle Recipe:
- 2 cups coconut milk (full-fat for creamier popsicles)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener of your choice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Assorted fruits, such as berries, sliced kiwi, chopped mango, or diced pineapple
- Prepare the popsicle molds: Ensure that your popsicle molds are clean and ready for use.
- Mix the coconut milk and sweetener: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, pure maple syrup (or your preferred liquid sweetener), and vanilla extract until well combined. This will serve as the base for your popsicles.
- Add the fruit: Drop your choice of assorted fruits into the popsicle molds, distributing them evenly among the molds. You can use a single fruit or a combination of fruits for a variety of flavors and colors.
- Pour the coconut milk mixture: Slowly pour the coconut milk mixture over the fruit in each popsicle mold, ensuring that the liquid fills each mold to the top. Leave a small amount of space for expansion when freezing.
- Insert the popsicle sticks: Gently insert popsicle sticks into each mold, ensuring they are centered. The mixture should be thick enough to hold the sticks in place.
- Freeze the popsicles: Carefully transfer the popsicle molds to the freezer and let them freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or until the popsicles are completely frozen.
- Unmold and enjoy: Once the popsicles are fully frozen, remove the molds from the freezer. To release the popsicles, briefly run warm water over the molds or let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes. Gently pull out and enjoy!
