Know Thy Food (best food buying group ever). I had to quickly freeze them before time ran out because, as a strawberry farmer once said to me ~"those Hood variety strawberries go bad if you look at them wrong." So I found myself with an overabundance of very ripe strawberries as well as massive amounts of mint growing in my garden. Add a can of coconut milk, some honey and vanilla stevia and these pops are a huge hit. As you know from other posts, I always try out recipes on the neighborhood kids. These definitely passed, and the slightly phallic shaped rocket popsicle molds were also a success (take that Mr. Ice Cream Man...just keep driving past my house with that catchy tune).
Strawberry Mint Coconut Pops
9 large strawberries (approximately 1 pound)
2-3 tablespoons honey
dash of vanilla bean powder or vanilla extract
10 fresh mint leaves
1 can full fat organic coconut milk
7 drops vanilla cream liquid stevia
pinch of sea salt
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight or for 5-8 hours.
