Star Spangled Creamsicles
These creamsicles are so pretty with their red, white and blue theme but also super delicious. Even better, though, they’re easy to make and fun for the whole family.
What do I need to make Star Spangled Creamsicles?
Here are the ingredients that you’ll need:
- Coconut flakes
- Coconut milk
- Heavy whipping cream
- Vanilla extract
In addition to the ingredients, you’ll also want to grab the following supplies:
I love the mold set that I have linked above because it comes with all of the items you’ll need to mold the popsicles.
How do I make Star Spangled Creamsicles?
Remember how I said these were easy to make? Well, they are – I promise. First, let’s prep the ingredients by washing the fruit. You’ll also want to dice up your strawberries.
In each popsicle mold, add some strawberries to the bottom.
Pour coconut milk on top of the strawberries until each mold is about 1/3 full.
This is the hardest part – put these in the freezer for 1 1/2 hours to harden. But set a timer for about 1/2 way through that time and put the popsicle sticks in each mold.
Once the time is up, remove from the freezer and add some coconut flakes into each mold.
Now grab a small bowl and mix the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract together. Pour into each mold until the molds are about 2/3 full.
Place in the freezer for an additional 1 1/2 hours.
Here comes the last layer! Remove the popsicles from the freezer and add blueberries to each. Then top each mold off with coconut milk.
Last time – pop them in the freezer for 1 1/2 hours.
Are there any ingredients I can leave out?
I personally am not a huge fan of coconut so I leave that out and just add a little more of each fruit. However, keep the red, white and blue theme for purposes of these popsicles being Star Spangled.
How can I keep these cold once molded?
If you’re at a cookout and need to keep these cold, my best tip is to fill a bowl with ice and lay these on top. Don’t leave them out too long, try to only do this when its time to serve dessert. You can leave the popsicles in the molds until you’re ready to serve too.
Can I substitute the Coconut Milk for anything else?
Absolutely! You can use almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk, etc. The possibilities are endless if you’re not a fan of coconut milk.
Do I need to add any sweetener?
The fruit in these popsicles should add a level of sweetness that satisfies everyone. However, if you would like some more sweetness, add some honey – yum!
Storage for Star Spangled Creamsicles
These popsicles can be stored in the freezer for 2-3 months in an airtight container, plus, you’ll want to enjoy frozen.
