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.
- 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!
