I’ve never really been an avid popsicle maker, but after making a few recipes recently I should have been on this train a while ago. Making popsicles is the easiest thing to make ever!
Even though my wife drinks Silk Soy Milk every morning for breakfast, she gave these popsicles made with almond milk her approval. I used Silk’s new dairy free Almond Coconut Blend, there’s just something about those flavors that screams outdoors and summer to me, so making popsicles seemed like a no-brainer! With only 50 calories per serving, 50% more calcium than regular milk and zero cholesterol, using Silk Almond Coconut Blend for popsicles provides a healthier product than some popsicles already in the stores and trust me, my kids can race through them in this warm summer weather! Can you believe there’s only five ingredients in this recipe and two of them are Silk products.
I used Silk’s Blueberry Soy Fruit and Creamy as a thickener and sweetened it up with a dash of agave, you could also use honey if you like. The yogurt gives it a really creamy texture and the flavor from the coconut makes you think you should be swinging on a hammock somewhere in Hawaii, popsicle in hand. I was torn between making popsicles or going completely the other way and making a Thai green curry. I think the coconut blend would be perfect and you’d have a lot less calories than regular coconut milk. That’s definitely on my list for next time.
