Popsicles are amazing icy treats from heaven.
Unfortunately, I don’t make them often because my toddler is the only person her age that hates popsicles (the neon-colored store-bought push-up popsicles are okay though). So, I only ever make popsicles when I really want one. And when I saw that my local produce store had fresh guava for sale, I suddenly had the biggest craving for a guava popsicle.
For some reason, my produce store never has the “popular” fruit variations, in this instance, they only had white guava as opposed to those bright pink guavas I am so in love with. There isn’t a difference in taste, but still. To get the pink color, I’ve been obsessing over, I mixed it with the strawberries and the taste was incredible! Paired with the wild blueberries and the coconut milk & yogurt mixture, it is a sweet and summery treat I can’t get enough of!
Let’s take a moment to stare at my sister’s chipped Julep polish. And how awful that stupid watermark is. I got rid of that plugin, but I can’t find clean copies of the photos on my work computer. (Did I ever mention how my office is deathly quiet, so I end up writing the occasional post here to help pass the time? More on that later)
- ½ cup fresh roughly chopped strawberries
- ½ cup sugar, divided
- ½ cup wild blueberries
- 8 fresh guava, peeled, deseeded and pureed
- ½ can 12oz coconut milk
- ½ cup vanilla yogurt
- in a small pot, heat the strawberries and half the sugar on medium heat until the strawberries release their juices and the strawberries are soft. Mash the strawberries with a fork or potato masher. Place in a separate bowl and set aside. Repeat the process with the blueberries.
- Mix the pureed guava with the strawberries and divide the mixture in 10 popsicle molds. Layer the blueberry mixture on top.
- Mix the coconut milk with the yogurt and layer this on top of the blueberry mixture.
- Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 4 hours.
