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 popsicles of some sort at home for years and yet for some dumb reason totally resisted buying those plastic molds.

I really have no idea why, they’re not expensive. I just don’t like them.

So, I thought ice pop making was out of the question.

Until….Dixie cups.

Duh.

Paleo Raspberry Coconut Milk Ice Pops with Chia Seeds

Seriously, how did I not realize that?

I’ve since bought a silicone popsicle mold to make other frozen treats like these creamy peach popsicles but Dixie cups are always an easy and perfectly good backup if you prefer.

Raspberry Coconut Milk Ice Pops

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.

ps- Add in a layer of blue (blueberries?) and you’ve got yourself the perfect Memorial Day or 4th of July treat. I just couldn’t bring myself to be that blogger giving you all cutesy holiday appropriate pinteresty food.

Gag.

I happened to stumbled upon this during a google search for what in the heck to do withe pound of chia seeds I just bought outside of throwing them in my oatmeal or post-workout protein smoothie haha.

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 :)
