Looking for the perfect, guilt-free dessert for this hot Summer weather? Check out these fruity, tropical-flavored vegan popsicles, with under 3 ingredients and ready to be put in the freezer in just 5 minutes!
I’m not a huge fan of sweets, but I must admit, I crave them sometimes now, especially because it’s Summer and the temperatures are rising. All I’m thinking about are Frappes, ice-creams / popsicles and a Mai Tai on the beach! :))
Recently, I decided to give up dairy, at least for a while. I wasn’t eating it daily, but I feel a lot better without it completely. If you want to minimize your dairy intake or are already vegan, then this vegan popsicle recipe will surely become your favorite!
For this vegan popsicles recipe, I used the Adez Chilling Coconut milk. I’ve discovered the Adez brand a while ago, when I received a free sample along with my monthly online food order.
I loved it, especially because it has no added sugars. The beverages are naturally sweet, even the soy milk tastes good! I’ve never found a soy milk that I can say I truly like, until now. So, I’ve started exploring their products in order to find my favorite.
And I did. My fav is Adez Chilling Coconut, which is now always in my fridge – when I’m lucky enough to find it on th shelves because it usually is the first one to be sold out. 😀
Thinking about how to emphasize the coconut flavor in this beverage, I thought about trying it in three recipes: vegan custard, vegan pannacotta, or vegan popsicles.
In the end, I decided on the latter because I thought it to be the perfect recipe for hot weather – quick, easy, refreshing. In case you’d like me to try the other recipes as well, let me know in a comment below. 🙂
This vegan popsicles recipe is super-easy. You’ll need just 3 ingredients: the milk, a healthy sweetener of choice and the fruits – looooots of fruits!
I prefer the sorbet texture for ice cream, so this is what I filmed below, however, if you like a creamier texture, I’ve got you covered. There are two versions for this recipe below. Instead of full-fat coconut milk, for the creamy version, you can also use vegan yogurt.
Following the same technique, you can experiment with other flavors as well. For example, you can mix the ‘milk’ with some cocoa, and enjoy a delicious chocolate vegan popsicle! Dip in in some melted chocolate after it is frozen and then in some chopped nuts, and you can enjoy a decadent popsicle in no time!
Also, another idea for vegan popsicles is to mix the ‘milk’ with some fruit puree, such as mango or berries. You can create a beautiful ombre popsicle look with ease. I preferred to enjoy the fruits sliced not blended, because they were very sweet and it was like biting on candy! 🙂
Hope you’ll like this vegan popsicles recipe and give it a try. You can use any other fruits you want – peaches, nectarines, melons, etc.
