Chia Coconut Pudding Popsicles

We are celebrating Tea-sicles all week! Starting our Tea-sicle celebration is this Chia Coconut Pudding Popsicle. With the creaminess of the coconut milk mixed with fresh fruit, honey and chia seeds this is a splendid way to cool down on a warm day. Worried about the way milk freezes, don't because by using coconut milk you get the creamy texture desired without the separation of the water, like in dairy milk creating an icy milk which is unappealing. Enjoy this Chia Coconut Pudding Popsicle recipe provided below.
What You Will Need
  • 1 can (14-15 oz) coconut milk (I used full fat)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • fresh fruit of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp sugar or honey (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract (optional)
  1. Pour the coconut milk into a small bowl. Make sure to get out all the thickened stuff inside the can. Give it a whisk or a stir to combine well.
  2. Stir in the chia seeds and let sit, stirring once or twice, for about 30 minutes, to allow the seeds to expand.
  3. Add a little bit of the coconut mixture to the bottom of each of 5 popsicle molds.
  4. Drop some of the fruit in on top. If your fruit is too big to fit, chop it up.
  5. Continue adding more coconut mixture, then more fruit until the molds are almost full. Rap the mold firmly against a hard surface to encourage the pudding to fill all the nooks and crannies in and around the fruit.
  6. Insert popsicle sticks into the molds, they will stand up by themselves.
  7. Top off the molds if there is any room in them.
  8. Freeze for several hours until completely frozen.
  9. To remove from the molds, fill a sink with hot water, just deep enough to immerse the mold up to, but not over, the rim, and hold the mold in the hot water for about 15 seconds to loosen the pops.
  10. Pull the popsicles out of the mold and enjoy.
  11. If you want to save the pops for later, wrap them in waxed paper and place in zip lock baggies.
