Strawberry Coconut Blueberry Popsicles

Festive red, white, & blue popsicles | Pale Yellow {layers of strawberry, coconut, and lime}Happy 4th of July!  At least it’s almost the Fourth of July.  You have just enough time to go buy a popsicle mold and all the ingredients to make these festive and delicious popsicles before the fireworks begin!  I haven’t excelled at making treats for specific holidays lately, but when looking for a popsicle recipe, I couldn’t resist.

Festive red, white, & blue popsicles | Pale Yellow {layers of strawberry, coconut, and lime}I have wanted a popsicle mold for a long time now and finally bit the bullet and bought one.  I bought the Norpro because it had good reviews on Amazon without the kitschy shape.  No stars here!  The popsicle mold was super easy to use and I love the square shape of the popsicles.

Festive red, white, & blue popsicles | Pale Yellow {layers of strawberry, coconut, and lime}I have great memories of watching the fireworks in Northern Michigan with my cousins growing and that’s what I always think of around this time of year.  Unfortunately I can’t remember what I did last year for the fourth.  Seriously, I’m too young to be this forgetful!

Festive red, white, & blue popsicles | Pale Yellow {layers of strawberry, coconut, and lime}I have not forgotten how good these popsicles taste.  They are light and refreshing.  The lime juice allows the popsicles to taste as bright as they look.  All of the fruit is fresh and it’s awesome knowing all the ingredients in my treat.  I’m definitely going to be making more popsicles this summer and this batch was a great start!

Strawberry, Coconut, Blueberry Popsicles
Adapted from HGTV Blog
Yield – 10 popsicles

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
3 limes
1 cup strawberries
1 cup coconut milk, low-fat
1 cup blueberries
popsicle sticks

  1. Make a simple syrup by heating the water and sugar until it boils and all the sugar dissolves.  Stir as needed.  Set aside to cool.
  2. Hull and roughly chop strawberries to equal one cup.  Add to a blender along with the juice of one lime and 1/4 cup of the simple syrup, blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into the popsicle molds about 1/3 of the way.  Freeze for an hour.
  4. Blend together the coconut milk, 1/4 cup simple syrup, and the juice of one lime.  Fill each popsicle another third, add in the popsicle sticks, and freeze for one hour.
  5. Blend the blueberries, 1/4 cup simple sugar, and juice from the last lime to the blender and blend until smooth.  Fill the molds to the top and freeze until firm.
  6. Remove the popsicles from the mold by running the mold under warm water.  Wrap in parchment paper and store in a ziploc bag in the freezer
