I just can’t stop.
Somebody send help because I’m totally addicted to popsicles. It’s been so dang hot here and the berries are everywhere and all up in my face! Farmer’s Market. Publix. The Teeter. They beg me to buy them, throw them into my Vitamix, and make popsicle magic with the gallons of cans of coconut milk currently residing in my pantry.
Just add booze.
Trust me. I know that boozing up my popsicles must come as a terrible shock.
Even though I’m late to the party, I couldn’t forget to come on and ride this red white and blue train because it’s 4th of July already! Whaaaaaat?!?!?!
And I know everyone is lamenting about where in tarnation did the time go, but seriously, where in tarnation did the time go?
I don’t know about you, but I’m so not about dwelling on time passing because that’s totally not my jam. I’m going to keep making popsicles and stuffing them in my face for as long as it makes me happy – even if this sickness turns into peppermint popsicles in December. I’ll own it.
So, I had all kinds of berries in my fridge (see above berry buying problem) and a big bottle of limoncello on hand, so that was enough to make dangerous boozy popsicle magic. Can you seriously complain about a cocktail and a popsicle all in one? I can’t. Have you met me? I’ll own that too.
I’m so glad we had this little talk. I don’t know about you, but I sure do feel better.
Boozy Red White and Blueberry Limoncello Popsicles
- 1/2 cup limoncello divided
- 1 pint fresh blueberries
- 1 pint fresh strawberries
- 1 can coconut milk full fat and I had about 1/3 cup leftover that I used in smoothies
Add blueberries and 1/4 cup limoncello to a high speed blender or food processor and puree until smooth
Pour into popsicle molds 1/3 full
Rinse blender and add strawberries and remaining 1/4 cup limoncello and puree until smooth
Slowly pour coconut milk on top of blueberry popsicle layer to 2/3 full
Slowly pour the strawberry limoncello puree on top of the coconut milk layer to fill the molds
Cover, insert sticks, and freeze overnight
Note: Add 1 -2 tablespoons of agave to each of the fruit layers while pureeing if you have a sweet tooth or your fruit is not as sweet as you want it.
Note: If your pops don’t come out easily run them under some warm water for 15 seconds. If they are still stuck, run them under warm water for another 10 seconds or so.
P.S. Don’t get too aggressive while trying to remove your pops from the molds or you could end up somewhat frustrated
Have a safe and happy 4th, y’all!

You are totally obsessed. You should have a popsicle recipe book or something. Actually that is a really good idea – I would totally buy that. At least an ebook or something.

You are on a roll! Don’t stop….however maybe use a lighter grip when removing the pops! No more broken sticks 🙂 This popsicle looks so delicious and I love the addition of the limoncello! Happy 4th 🙂

You can never have too many popsicles. I’ve been waiting for my molds to arrive so I can create some awesome pops – but the shipment seems to be delayed 🙁 I’ll have to just lust after all yours until the things arrive!

Oh wow! I love boozy popsicles. And I am loving all your popsicle series, so keep them coming. Addition of the limoncello sounds fantastic here. And your stunning photos are making me drool! SO good. 🙂
I’m loving your obsession because then I get to drool over all of these incredible popsicles! And you said the magic word, booze. A sweet treat with booze in it is pretty hard to beat. Love the photos too!
All of these Popsicles of yours look fabulous! Limoncello in a Popsicle sounds out of this world. Yum.

Limoncello is one of my favorite liqueurs to drink so this popsicle is now one of my favorite frozen treats! 😉

I have been on a blueberry buying rampage as well. They are taking up all the room in my fridge. And as luck would have it, I had my husband pick up some limoncello recently — cause that can’t be a bad thing to keep in the freezer during the summer — so these absolutely need to happen! And you just keep on keeping on with your popsicles 😉
