Dairy Free Blueberry Pecan Popsicles

popsicles5

disclosure

    They are dairy-free, gluten-free, and processed sugar-free but these Blueberry Pecan Popsicles are far from taste-free! Giving up milk is hard-replacing that creaminess especially in ice cream and other milk based desserts has been a bit of a challenge. Then I discovered canned coconut milk and realized how delicious it was, it is now my go to replacement in everything from coffee to homemade whipped cream to these popsicles.

    While the kids also love this popsicle recipe I made this one with the grown-ups in mind and with just 4 simple ingredients- creamy coconut milk, crunchy pecans, raw honey, and fresh blueberries…and yes they are as good as they look! These dairy free popsicles are so delicious and quite healthy- that makes for a great snack, dessert, or even breakfast treat on a hot day!

Ingredients:

1 oz. can coconut milk
½ cup fresh blueberries
3 T. chopped pecans
2 T. raw honey

Directions:

-Wash your fresh blueberries well, drain.

-If you are starting with whole pecans chop them up roughly.

-You can either begin with whole blueberries or crush them up a little or completely.

-Stir in coconut milk, pecans, and honey, mixing well.

-Pour mixture into popsicle molds, I love this set here that comes with a stand to keep them upright in the freezer:

-Allow to harden for 3-4 hours until set completely.

    To make them even better for you skip the honey and just enjoy the fruit, coconut milk, and pecan texture and flavor together.  You can also swap out any sweetener you like xylitol, pure sugar, maple syrup or agave.  This is especially important for those who have modified diets due to allergies or other health issues.

    I make really great blueberry pecan muffins so I think I will try my hand at these. Great summer treat!

  7. Wow, that is an interesting combination. I am going to give this a try this summer when we need a little cooling off.

  8. I can’t have pecans… But I would replace them with something like rice krispies to still have that crunch!

  9. Absolutely adore that it’s made with coconut milk! All of these frozen pops I’m seeing online are so inspiring!

  13. These popsicles look amazing! I love making our own popsicles perfect treat for summer evenings.

  14. I love the fresh fruit we get at our farmer markets for making our own treat. This sounds like a great flavor combination for a popsicles.

  15. Coconut milk is amaaazing. I wish I could get more affordable cans here because I would make tons of non-dairy yummies (including your delish popsicles) and I especially love mixing it with curry.

  16. These look so great and super easy to make!

  17. I love blueberries and I can eat anything which is made with blueberries (extremely obsessed). So delicious and easy to make recipe.

    I am excited to try this recipe. It looks so delicious and refreshing. My family is going to love them.

  20. These sound so refreshingly perfect for a hot summers day. I definitely will be making these and bringing them poolside this summer.

  21. I’ve been using Almond milk since regular milk tends to make my blood sugar go up up up. I have yet to try coconut milk. These pops, which seem very easy to make and look and sound delicious, would be a great way to try it. I could sure use one of those right now!!
