These raspberry coconut creamsicles are a dreamy treat that are vegan, gluten-free and refined-sugar-free! Make these pops with an ombre effect for an impressive and fun treat
Hey, hi, hello.
Hello creamsicles! Or as I prefer to call them…dreamsicles! Seriously can we can talk about how dreamy these pops are?
I was swooning over these when I popped them out of their moulds! And not only do they look beautiful, but they also taste friggin amazing! They’re filled with raspberry and coconut flavour and made of coconut cream and coconut yogurt, so they’re 100% all natural, dairy-free and vegan!
The different shades also give a bit of variety from more coconutty-tasting, to more raspberry tasking, so you can choose as you please! Of course you can skip out on making these raspberry coconut creamsicles with the ombre effect if you prefer. Just blend all the raspberries in at once and they’ll still be beautiful and delicious!
The mixture for these raspberry coconut creamsicles is made with just a handful of simple ingredients directly in the blender. (a food processor would work great too!) To get the gradient effect, all you have to do is start by adding just a few raspberries or get a very soft pink. Pour out two popsicles in that colour and repeat the process, each time adding more and more berries.
For the darkest colour popsicles, I also added a little bit of freeze-dried dragonfruit powder to get that deep rich colour. This is of course totally optional and doesn’t add any taste, but it’s a great fun product I love to use in my recipes to make them a little more special.
A few notes on the recipe:
I like to use a mix of coconut milk and coconut yogurt in this recipe because I just LOVE that extra tangy zing from the yogurt! If you can’t find coconut yogurt, you can use any type of plant-based yogurt, or just substitute for some more coconut milk. If you want to get really fancy you can also make your own coconut yogurt at home. It tastes a little time to make but is actually super easy to do! I’ve used the minimalist baker recipe to make it.
I love the flavour combination of raspberries and coconut, but if you prefer to use a different type of berry then go for it! This will of course alter the colour of the creamsicles. (Blackberries or blueberries would probably make for some beautiful purple pops!)
The first couple time I tried making popsicles at home I really struggled trying to figure out how to get them out of the moulds. Then I discovered you can run them under hot water to loosen them up. This is the best trick to get your popsicles out!
Just make sure to run them under the hot water while rotating the mould for 3o-60 second intervals. After every 30-60 seconds remove them from the hot water and give the popsicles sticks a little tug. If they still feel stuck, run them under the hot water for another 30 seconds. It’s important not to run them under the water for too long because this could actually lead to melted popsicles!
These raspberry coconut creamsicles are:
- Refined-sugar free
- All natural
I use this popsicle mould to make these creamsicles. Once you remove the pops from their moulds, store them in a large ziplock bag in the freezer.Print
Creamy dreamy popsicles loaded with coconut and raspberry!
- Blend the coconut milk, coconut, vanilla and maple syrup together in a blender or food processor.
- Add in 1-2 tbsp of raspberries and blend until combined. Then pour out 2 popsicles in the light pink colour.
- Add a handful of raspberries and blend until combined to make a slightly darker pink. Pour out 2 popsicles.
- Repeat this process adding more raspberries each time to make the popsicles darker, adding the dragonfruit powder to the darkest popsicle if desired.
- Once your mould is full, place in the freezer for one hour to freeze slightly.
- Remove from freezer, insert the popsicles sticks, and then place back in the freezer overnight.
- To remove the popsicles from the mould, run them under hot water for 30 seconds and then gently pull on the popsicle sticks.
You can skip out on the ombre effect and simply add all the raspberries at once.
