The sweltering heat and humidity of long summer days in PA has peaked this week! So how do you beat the summer blues? Eat yummy frozen treats! Oh and add some water balloons, swimming, boat rides and lazy days of reading in the shade and you have a perfect day! (Some A/C would be nice, too!)
I don’t want the yummy frozen treat part, to get boring, so this week we crafted a new Almond Coconut Raspberry Pops recipe using Almond Coconut Silk Blends® . Non-dairy options are always a welcome change and Silk Blends® has 50% more calcium than dairy milk, making it a perfect ingredient in our frozen pops recipe.
Almond Coconut Silk Blends are the perfect combination of almond milk and coconut milk. Silk provides you with these benefits:

Each cup of Almond Coconut Silk Blends® contains 50 calories. Pour a cup for a refreshing drink, add it to your morning cereal, stir it up in smoothies and of course try our Almond Coconut Raspberry Frozen Pops!

On Saturday afternoon we arrived home to a quart of fresh raspberries on our porch. YUM! We are blessed with great neighbors who share their garden fruits and veggies with the neighborhood. Raspberries are so nutritious, a great super food to add you eating plan! They provide you with:
- Vitamin C
- Dietary Fiber
- Antibacterial Properties
Plus, their low in calories and fat. Eating raspberries is a great way to get a sweet treat that is a benefit to you in many ways!
- Almond Coconut Silk Blends
- Fresh Raspberries, or any fruit you have on hand
- Fill your molds approx 1/2 way with fruit
- Drizzle with honey
- Add Almond Coconut Blend Silk
- Freeze for at least 6 hours.
Making your own form of frozen pops let’s you control the ingredients. I think Popsicle molds is one of the best gadgets we have in the kitchen and we have several sets. It’s another great way to get your kids in the kitchen.
The boys slowed down for a few minutes to enjoy their Almond Coconut Rasperry Frozen Pops. The Popsicle recipe using the Almond Coconut Silk Blends® was a big hit.
I cannot wait to try this recipe with pureed pineapple. I bet it will taste just like a frozen Pina Colada. Be sure to visit the Silk Blends® store locator to find the flavors available in your local area.
What kind of frozen treats do you plan to whip up this summer?
