My little guy came up with the great idea for these popsicles. I asked him what flavors he wanted to make when we got the molds and he said: Blueberry Cream and Orange Cantaloupe. We’ll start with Blueberry Cream, naturally. 🙂
Blueberry Cream Popsicles
- 1 can (14 oz.) full fat coconut milk
- 16 oz./2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blueberries
- 2-3 Tbs. raw honey
- 2 Tbs. chia seeds (optional)
- 2-3 Tbs. fresh mint, chopped (optional)
Add the can of coconut milk to your food processor or blender. If using a food processor, turn the processor on and drizzle the honey from the hole in the top, so the honey blends smoothly with the coconut milk. If using a Vitamix or blender, add the honey to the coconut milk and blend.
Then add blueberries, you can pulse if you want chunkier popsicles, or blend until smooth.
Add chia seeds (optional) and pulse a couple of times until even. Add mint (also optional) and also pulse a couple of times so the mint is evenly distributed. Pour the mixture into your molds, leaving 1/4th space at the top and freeze! Because I used a food processor for mine, I poured the mixture into a small pitcher first, then poured into my molds, it makes it much easier! After the popsicles are frozen, run your molds under water to loosen them and you’re good to go!
Then…test on your kiddos!
These popsicles are a great dairy-free option and the possibilities of flavors are endless. Enjoy.

Could you use homemade coconut milk? And if so, how much? Sounds soo yummy!!
Absolutely! I would say 14 oz./2 oz. less than 2 cups. Let me know how homemade turns out, I’d love to know. I used full fat coconut milk to give it it’s creamy texture. -Rama
These sound amazing, I can’t wait to give them a try.
Thanks, Kim! They turned out great even with the added chia seeds 🙂
This recipe is very similar to mine. I guess great minds think alike! I haven’t even had a chance to photograph mine yet. 🙁 It will probably be next week sometime. I love how you added chia seeds! Genius! Wish I had thought of that one. 🙂
Yes, great minds think alike! I hear you about photographing your food. So wish I had time to blog more of my own recipes, love that you do it so well with yours. Your recipes rock and they are simple a.k.a. user-friendly for busy lives. I wondered if they would be similar 🙂 I threw those in (chia seeds) at the last minute and they worked out great. You could probably go with 2 Tbs. of raw honey over 3 as well, I think if I would have used fresh berries that’s all I would have needed. Can’t wait for your recipe as well. We should do a popsicle link up with 1 post with a list of popsicle with fellow favorite bloggers 😉 -Rama
