Raspberry Coconut Chia Ice Pops

These 3 ingredient raspberry coconut chia ice pops are so simple to make at home and the perfect summer treat!

It’s officially ice pop season. The house is still hot after the sun sets, the a/c is needed at night to sleep comfortably and I no longer want my cup of hot tea while drooling over Harvey Spector during our night-time ritual Suits watching. Off topic for a hot sec, back in the day when Real World was still cool, I was OBSESSED with Jacinda from the London season. OBSESSED. I loved her name, I loved her hair, I wanted to be her. Well, turns out Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht) is actually married to her and now I’m obsessed with him. Also, she’s 42 now (because of course I google stalked them both). Where the hell did the time go?

Raspberry Coconut Chia Ice Pops

Ok, so ice pops…I’ve wanted to make these things at home for years and yet for some dumb reason totally resisted buying those plastic molds. I really have no idea why, I just don’t like them. So, I thought ice pop making was out of the question.

Two words: Dixie cups.

Seriously, how did I not realize that?

These are my third creation in a week. I’m officially hooked. They’re literally 3 ingredients (with extra add-ins if you want) and could NOT be easier.

    First off, your pictures are Gorgeous (yes with a capital G!). I love, love, love the look of these simple pops and the flavors sound fantastic. My 5 year old son has been begging me to make ice pops, and even though my 13 year old daughter does not like coconut (even though I sneak it in here and there and she notices but does not complain) AND is afraid (yes afraid) of chia seeds, at least we ALL love raspberries AND I think I will just have to make these. Thanks so much for the great idea!

    These look great. Could I just process all of the ingredients together and freeze them all at once? My two year old and I don't care what they look like :)

    I came for the ice pop recipes. I rarely READ the entire blog page, usually just pick up the recipe and go on my way... For some reason I did read the whole page and this line made me subscribe: "... I just couldn’t bring myself to be that blogger giving you all cutesy holiday appropriate pinteresty food. Gag." Loved it! LOL Checking out your site after I made these and WILL read as I go! =) Thank you for the recipes!

    Hi! Just want to highly recommend this recipe. So far, I have made two dozen and plan to make 4 dozen more for the July 4th Holiday. I love them! I am going to add Strawberry-Rhubarb to my next batch in place of raspberries. We love using the small paper dixie cups. So much better than using plastic! Thanks you for sharing!

Just curious - have you tried making these with a greek yogurt-coconut milk mixture? I always have yogurt and kefir on hand (make my own...#crafty

      I haven't but I'm sure it would work really well. I'd use full fat yogurt though otherwise they'll be more icy in texture. I think kefir would be awesome because of that tang! Let me know if you make them :)
