Today is the first day of spring, last week it was in the 80’s, and tomorrow we’re supposed to get 6 to 9 inches of snow. This is definitely Missouri weather!
Weather or not it feels like spring (ha ha!) I’m so glad it’s finally here that I’m celebrating with a yummy popsicle recipe today.
I don’t usually keep kid treats in the house because my kids always devour them within 24 hours of bringing them home and those treats are usually loaded with garbage anyway. My mom was the same way and my sister and I always looked forward to those rare occasions when she’d bring home a box or two of instant pudding mix in the summer because we knew that usually meant pudding pops! Last Friday I made these for my kids who were running in and out of the house peeling off layers of clothes because the temp was right at swimming weather. They were overjoyed when I brought a plate full of these outside. I told them they could eat them inside rather than fight off all the dogs, cat, goats and chickens, but they wanted the full springlike experience and managed just fine.
These were super quick and easy to mix up. Here’s the recipe:
1 15 oz can full fat coconut milk
8 oz of frozen strawberries
Stevia to taste.
1 tsp vanilla
Blend all ingredients in a blender till only small chunks of strawberries remain. Pour mix into popsicle molds and place the stick handles into each mold. Stick ’em in the freezer. Couldn’t be simpler!
