Equipment

  • Blender
  • Popsicle Molds

Ingredients

Creamy Strawberry & Rose Popsicles

  • 2 cups strawberries frozen or fresh
  • 2 tbsp rosewater
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp honey or other sweetener optional

Mango Coconut Popsicles

  • 2 cups chopped mango frozen or fresh
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp lime juice

Watermelon Mint Popsicles

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped watermelon
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp honey or other sweetener optional

Instructions

Creamy Strawberry & Rose Popsicles

  • Blend strawberries and rosewater together into a puree. If using a sweetener, add half to the strawberry puree and half to the yoghurt and mix.
  • Fill the molds in layers, starting with one third of strawberry puree, 1/3 of yoghurt and finish with another layer of puree. Use a small spoon to vertically stir the layers and create a swirling pattern.
  • Tap to remove any air bubbles, insert sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Mango Coconut Popsicles

  • Blend the mango and orange juice into a fine puree. In another bowl, mix the coconut milk with the lime juice.
  • Divide the mango puree over the mold, leaving about a centimeter free at the top. Spoon the coconut milk over the top.
  • Tap to remove any air bubbles, insert sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Watermelon Mint Popsicles

  • Blend watermelon, mint leaves, lime juice and sweetener (if using) together into a fine puree.
  • Fill the molds to the top and tap to remove any air bubbles. Insert sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Notes

  • Remove popsicles from mold by running them under warm tap water for a few seconds or warming them up between your hands. The popsicles should slide out easily after that!
  • Use the ripest fruit for the most flavour and sweetness. If needed, you can add some extra sweetener like honey, agave or sugar. Sweet fruits like banana or mango can also be added instead.
  • These recipes yields 6 popsicles of about 70ml, based on the IKEA molds we use. You can store any leftovers up to 3 days in the fridge (to make more popsicles as they get eaten) or blend them into your smoothie, pour over your breakfast cereal...no need to waste anything!
