Protein Ebook
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth
  2. If the fruit has seeds or a lot of fiber (e.g. raspberries or mangos), strain through a fine mesh sieve and discard the solids
  3. Fill popsicle molds with the mixture and freeze at least 3 hours before eating.
  4. Store in the freezer for up to one week.

Recipe Tips:

Make sure the fruit you use is ripe, sweet and juicy. It may be necessary to let it sit out on the counter for a couple of day to reach prime ripeness. Patience pays!

You can use frozen fruit in these popsicles, but the taste and texture lose a lot in the process, mainly because you're taking something frozen, and freezing it again.

We made blueberry-raspberry, mango, and strawberry-banana popsicles. Other flavor combinations we'd like to try are mango-peach, coconut-lime (with coconut juice, lime juice, and lime zest), and pineapple.

Variations:

3 Flavors: Divide the recipe into 3 parts, and make 3 different flavors. It is more work, because you have to wash out the blender 3 times instead of only once. But then, you'll have 3 different fruit flavors in your freezer - bliss! You could even get carried away and make full batches of 3 different flavors, giving you 24 - 30 coconut fruit pops in 3 flavors - ecstacy!

Multi-Colored Pops: Make two 1/2 batches using two different kinds of fruit. Fill the Popsicle molds 1/2 way with the first batch and freeze for 1 hour. Fill Popsicle molds the rest of the way with the second batch and freeze popsicles for 3 more hours before eating.

Coconut Fruit Sorbet: Make the coconut fruit mixture into a sorbet using the same method given in the avocado lime sorbet recipe.
