Frozen Treats: Tropical Fruit Punch Popsicles

Beat the heat with our week long series on frozen treats! This is a guest post from Naomi of Bakers Royale. Welcome, Naomi!

Summer has just begun and the thermometer is already shouting numbers over 90. Add some humidity to that and a heat-induced laziness will overcome me faster than I can wipe the sweat off my forehead.

As for my boys, the flipside of a heat-induced laziness is crankiness, so to keep everyone moving and happy, I keep my freezer well stocked with fruit popsicles. Full of fruit, easy to make and costing a under a dollar a popsicle, I’m can feel good about us eating one, two or a few in one sitting.

The base for this popsicle is coconut. Being that coconut can be very sweet and strong on its own, I gave this popsicle some balance with raspberry tartness and lending a cooling hand is the citrus edge of the Clementine tangerines.

Recipe: Tropical Fruit Punch Popsicles

This recipe is highly adaptable and customizable. If any of the fruit is not in season for your area change it out for one that is. My rule of thumb: sip and taste as you mix.

For an adult variation, add a ½ cup of light rum; for more cocktail popsicles head HERE.)

  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • ¾ cup coconut water
  • ½ cup coconut cream
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1 lb of Clementine Tangerines, peeled
  • 12 oz fresh raspberries
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process or blend until pureed, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Pour mixture through a medium strainer to remove the raspberry seeds. Pour strained mixture into popsicle forms of choice.
  3. Place aluminum foil on top of the popsicle mold, and insert popsicle sticks in the center of each compartment. Freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight.
  4. To release popsicles, run hot water on the outside of popsicle forms for  a few seconds and pull firmly on the wooden sticks.

  3. I have been scowering the internet and blogland looking for a recipe that isn’t full sugar or that I can sweeten with stevia. This might must be it!! Coconut is so good for you too, Bonus! I’ve read that too much water and too little sugar makes them rock hard. Are these softer from the coconut mixture? You know like store bought? Also, where do you find the three different kind of coconut? Do you prefer a certain brand? hank you so much!

  4. I am loving all of the popsicle recipes as of late!

  5. Popsicles! My students would love these. Too bad I can’t bring in any homemade stuff. Oh well, I guess my husband and I will have to eat them on our own! :)

  6. I love this idea and the use of coconut and clementines…something I always have on hand.
