Hear me out. I get it. I have already teased you with fall pumpkin recipes and here I am bringing you cool popsicles. Here is the deal. In Southern California the days start off grey, foggy and a little chilly. By the afternoon the sun is scorching hot and we crave cold sips and icy pops. I made these for the kids when we were in Telluride.

I surprised them with Tutti-Frutti Coconut Chocolate Pops after camp. Now we enjoy them after school…..

That was a perfect bluebird day in the Rockies. See those puffy clouds. They were beautiful to gaze upon while licking frozen treats….

Making popsicles is super easy and stress free. Use whatever frozen or fresh fruit you have around the house.

It is a great way to munch on a few servings of fruit and if you add some yogurt, milk, or cream….you get a little bit of healthy fat and some protein too. You can keep things vegan with coconut, almond or soy milk.

Besides, give your kids or anyone you know a frozen treat like this and you are guaranteed a *smile*

Or some peace and quiet for a few minutes.

If you don’t have pop molds simple use dixie cups instead. Easy peasy. Even though you can’t put these pops in the lunch box (you could pack a smoothie version…hmmmm) You could toss a batch in the freezer for after school snacks. Stop on by Project Lunch Box and join us in the fun! Besides then you can sport this cute badge too…..

Tutti Fruiti Chocolate Popsicles

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 4 Popsicles

Serving Size: 1 Popsicle

Tutti Fruiti Chocolate Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces (1 large) Banana
  • 4 ounces low fat, unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • Vanilla Stevia Drops to taste if needed or your favorite natural sweetener
  • 1 1/2 - 2 ounces Rasberries (frozen are easier to work with in these pops)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 ounces Dark Chocolate, broken into small pieces

Method

  • In your blender combine banana and coconut milk. Fill pop molds with that mixture, leaving some room at the top for berries and chocolate. Freeze without the sticks for about 1 hour. Take pops out of freezer and crush ice that has formed with a small fork. Gently add the raspberries and chocolate pieces. Distribute them throughout the pop molds. Top the popsicles (is really the bottom of the pop) with extra chocolate and berries. Add sticks and cover with foil to keep them in place. Freeze another hour or so until frozen through.

This is such a great snack – I’m happy eating popsicles and ice cream all year round and it feels like such a treat to have something like this. I’m definitely going to make a batch this weekend!

These look almost as beautiful as your adorable children! It’s true- popsicles always keep the kids busy and quiet for a few moments- and these look like nothing to feel guilty about with their healthy ingredients!

I too, have been making pops using yogurt and fresh fruit. Sometimes after school snack is a smoothie but mostly the kids can easily grab one of these out of the freezer. Great combo, Marla!

Yummy! Chocolate and coconut, 2 of my favorites!
Great idea to grab a couple as an after school snack!
Love the photos of the kids in telluride. xo

Those look so perfect. I love the flavors and colors. And I totally know what you mean about this weather. It’s dreary right now but I bet by this afternoon it will be sunny and warm again. I do wish we got a bit more fall-like weather in SoCal.

That’s it… you’ve convinced me that I really need to bite the bullet and buy some popsicle molds! It’s still plenty hot out here in Honolulu and these look amazing :)

Reply

17 Marla September 21, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Hi Cate! I bet all year round icy pops would be great in Honolulu. If you can’t get your hands on pop molds use some little Dixie cups instead. You just let them sit out for a few minutes after freezing & then peel off the little cups :)

I need this in my life. Perfect for end of summer :)

19 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 21, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Love the popsicles..they look so creamy and delish. Coconut milk + bananas is a winning combo and then add fruit (and chocolate!) and you’re in business.

Gorgeous photos…working with items that melt and the pressure of TIME on a photo shoot is not easy!

I cannot wait to make these for the littles! I think that it would work great as a smoothie – freeze in a small container, put it in the lunchbox, and let them have a little semi-frozen smoothie treat. Yummy!

Reply

24 Marla September 21, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Natalie, I agree. I really think the smoothie thing could work. Let me know if you try it for the littles :)

Our days are really similar. I was going to go for a run this morning until I went outside and nearly froze. 10 hours later it was absolutely scorching! Mmm I bet pumpkin popsicles would be fantastic!

Reply

29 Marla September 22, 2011 at 6:02 am

Hi Leanne, this weather is odd but normal for here. Girl, I just want fall to show up & stick around for reals. Heck, we would still eat the pops!

It’s always Popsicle season here in So Cal

31 Ari@ThE DiVa DiSh September 22, 2011 at 12:12 am

it’s so funny, because I noticed it was 97 degrees today! So NOT fall weather! Gotta love so cal :-)! I just made a milkshake the other day, so I am all for these fruity coconut pops! My daughter would love these too! She is teething right now, and only likes to eat cold things :-)

32 Marla September 22, 2011 at 6:00 am

Ari, when little ones are teething they love frozen treats. Anything to ease the pain. When do you suppose fall will hit So Cal??

Your kids are too cute Marla! Our mornings here in Washington have been chilly in the morning then warm up in the afternoon (at least for the next day or two)… Even warm enough for me to want a Popsicle treat! What a wondering goodie you made :)

Thanks miss Heather! I am eagerly awaiting for the chill to stick around throughout the day. Think we will still eat the pops though!

This look wonderful. I made a smoothie this morning that was fruits and spinach and although it sounds crazy, I bet adding the pureed spinach would be a fun way to get kids to eat more veggies :)

Love the idea G. I know folks love spinach in fruit smoothies. Think I will make the popsicle version popular next. Wanna join me in this movement?

Marla, I saw these popsicle molds the other day at Santa Monica, and I was so tempted to buy them because I remember your last popsicle posts. The way you tempt us with your gorgeous pictures!

Thanks Sophia! Did you get the molds? I think I want to start a pop mold collection over here to keep things interesting ;) What shape were the ones you saw in Santa Monica?

gotta love frozen treats all year round – ice cream in the snow I say! With the choc and fruit do you really need sweetner?

I always pour any leftover green smoothie into popsicle molds. My 4 yr old won’t eat the greens as smoothies, but she will as popsicles. I LOVE IT!

Hi! Just made them and they were so tasty!!! However mine turners out light brown/beige in color. Do you know why? Also can I add a little honey or agave nectar to this? Thanks!

Reply

60 Marla July 17, 2013 at 5:42 am

Hi Samantha! Not sure why your pops were that color. I have noticed that some coconut cream can take on an off-white hue. That might be it. Perhaps you can experiment with a few brands.
