Can anyone else just smell the holidays around the corner? I can. But before we get to my favorite time of the year, I wanted to celebrate summer by sharing my ridiculously simple, refreshing, & tasty recipe for Watermelon Coconut Lime Popsicles.
Since summer started I have probably purchased a watermelon once every three days. I usually squeeze half a lime, grab a spoon, and head to the sofa to feast. It’s always so refreshing, perfectly sweet, and surprisingly filling. So I knew watermelon and lime popsicles would be fabulous. But then I thought…what about coconut. ? Then…BAM! I got the idea for Watermelon Coconut Lime Popsicles.
These are so easy to make…almost too easy. The swirls in the popsicles give the illusion that you did some kind of magic trick to make them so eye-catching. They remind me of those swirly popsicles that I had as a kid except way better.
Plus, the popsicles would be perfect for a get-together or end of summer party that Labor Day BBQ you committed to going to so you can show off your vegan “cooking” skills to family and friends. Speaking of BBQ, my Portobello Mushroom Burgers recipe would be another great addition to your BBQ. ?
This recipe is also customizable. The agave syrup is totally optional and you can switch it for any sweetener you’d prefer such a maple syrup or coconut sugar. Personally, I like a sweet popsicle and the agave adds a mild sweetness that doesn’t overpower any of the other flavors. However, I highly suggest using full fat coconut milk so the coconut milk flavor can really come through. If you don’t want or don’t care to have swirls in your popsicles, just blend all the ingredients in a blender and add the combined mixture to the mold rather than having your watermelon and coconut separate. This recipe makes 2 1/4 cups of popsicle amazingness which fit perfectly into the koji Ice Popsicle Molds which hold 528 ml. You may need to make adjustments to the recipe if your popsicle mold holds more or less.
