You will need a popsicle mould to make this recipe. I use this one from amazon, but any type of popsicle mold will work great!
Ingredients you’ll need
- Coconut milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Orange juice
- Fruit juice of choice
What is dragonfruit?
If you haven’t had dragonfruit before, it’s a pink fruit (on the outside) that has a pretty mild taste. You can get dragonfruits that are either white on the inside or a vibrant purple.
Though they aren’t super bold in taste, the colour of a purple dragonfruit is just incredible! You can often find this type of dragon fruit at your local Asian market, and the dragonfruit may have a sticker on it that says “red fruit” to distinguish it from the white fruit.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- If you can’t find pink dragonfruit, or just aren’t a fan of dragonfruit in general, you can use any type of fruit you like for the top layer of these popsicles. I’d recommend raspberries or strawberries if you’re looking to get a nice colour contrast against the yellow!
- If you want to get perfect layers, I recommend freezing each layer for 10-15 minutes before adding the next layer. (Though if you add them all at the same time these are still delicious!)
- To remove the popsicles from the mold, run the mould under hot water for 15-30 seconds, then gently tug on the popsicle stick.
