The temperatures are rising, and no, its not raining men. But, if you’re anything like me, cold treats are welcome anytime of the day. Ice cream for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do… Sure, a smoothie would be healthier, but when it’s this hot, does it really matter? Well, I guess it does, otherwise I wouldn’t have been motivated to make these pops. Or was it that going to store seemed like too much of an effort? We’ll never know…
But these pops are seriously easy, and loads healthier that store bought. They don’t have tons of added sugars or artificial coloring. Plus they’re just three ingredients. Coconut milk, nectarines, and sweetener (if using). You could use any ripe fruit you have on hand, but during the summer months I’m partial to nectarines and peaches.
So it’s time to plug in the blender, and pull out that set of popsicle molds. You know, the one at the back of the cupboard collecting dust since you bought it on liquidation? Yeah, that one!
No cooking, just a quick whiz in the blender and then into the freezer for 6-8 hours until firm. So if you make a batch now, after blending your morning smoothie, they’ll be ready later for an afternoon treat. Just saying.
- 6-7 medium sized ripe nectarines, pitted and quartered
- 1 14 ounce can light coconut milk

- Place the quartered nectarines in a blender along with the coconut milk and sweetener.
- Blend until smooth adding additional sweetener to taste.
- Pour into popsicle molds stopping short of the top and leaving about a ¼ inch of head space.

- Pops will keep in the freezer for about a month.
