Strawberry Chia Coconut Popsicles
Strawberry Chia Coconut Popsicles – made with coconut milk, chia seeds and fresh strawberries. The perfect light and refreshing sweet treat for summer.
How was your week? I got done so many things, so I’m excited to have a calm and relaxing weekend.
I was never a big fan of popsicles! Not until I started making them myself. Now, when I know what ingredients go into my frozen treats, I actually enjoy them a lot more!
These have a great texture, thanks to the chia seeds used. Very simple to make and I’ve been making them for a few months now, way before the weather warmed up. Just a few simple ingredients, a popsicle maker and some time to freeze. So easy!
You can also add some shredded coconut, but I decided to keep them simple! Make them sweeter, using more honey, but you know, I’m not a huge fan of overly sweet desserts.
These are perfect for entertaining. A healthier treat, both kids and adults will enjoy!
Make sure you soak the wooden popsicle sticks, so they don’t sink into the bottom.
Did I ever tell you how much I love this popsicle maker? I own a couple of inexpensive ones, which do the job, but I’ve been in love with this one. It is so easy to use and clean. The popsicle shape is great, too!
