Nothing says summer quite like popsicles, right?! This recipe is a little different than your average popsicles … First of all, it is coconut milk based, making the popsicles creamy and delicious. Second, it is gluten free, refined sugar free, nut free and vegan, making it almost allergy fool-proof for anyone! These popsicles are a better-for-you way to enjoy a summer favorite.
We also use one of our favorite ingredients, butterfly tea, to create a stunning blue color. If you aren’t familiar with butterfly tea, we highly suggest buying a bag of it and keeping it in your kitchen — It is a stunning way to naturally dye food. We also have a recipe for Butterly Tea Lemonade and a Forth of July Refresher if you need some inspiration on how to use this versatile ingredient.
