    Primal POPSICLES

    Hey everyone, its a humid 100 degrees in Alabama today and I want a popsicle. I also don't want the sugar that comes with a store brand. I want a nice, delicious, relaxing, ice cold, soothing popsicle that fits the primal guidelines. What's the best way to make them? What's your favorite popsicle recipe? What is your primal popsicle fantasy?

    I'm sure there are people out there who have gotten really creative with popsicles... guarantee there's one out there with avocado in it, lol.

    I've made popsicles by mixing coconut milk and fruit juice. I did it last year and I don't remember the proportions I ended up with. Might still be more sugar than you want, but at least it's less than using only juice. This year I want to try pureeing fresh fruit and mixing with coconut milk.

    This recipe makes me drool: Blood Orange Creamsicles: Refreshing and Sophisticated | Family Kitchen - and also shows that you can do yogurt and fruit juice mixed together, although it might be a little tart from the yogurt, as you can see by all the honey they end up using in the recipe. I'd leave out the honey and try it, and if necessary, I'd add a little stevia.. but I know a lot of people here avoid that, too.

    We've had a couple of scorching hot days in Indiana, too. We read the ingredients on the boxes of the "all fruit" popsicles at the store and promptly shoved them back into the freezer! Why add all that sugar and all those preservatives to frozen fruit?!?! I've been using my food processor to puree fresh mango with fresh strawberries. Then I just pour them into the popsicle molds and stick in the freezer. Haven't tried mixing with the coconut milk, but that sounds really good!
    Wag more, bark less.

    I think these I posted about below, made with the runnier light coconut milk, would be perfect for popsicles:

    Also, pulsing berries and coconut milk in a food processor and freezing that into popsicles might be good!

    Since I'm not always wild about coconut milk (or creamsicles for that matter), I might mix unsweetened grape juice with some blended fruit, or coconut water with blended pineapple/banana. Yummy!!

    When I was kid and we made pudding pops or popsicles, we would pour them into disposable small cups (like the kind you keep by the bathroom sink for rinsing with water), and then put a popsicle stick (bought at the craft store) in them. I'm sure you can get fancier molds though :P

    Oh yeah, I heard the other day that just plain pureed watermelon makes a GREAT popsicle, the texture is apparently really good. I don't really like watermelon but I've thought about mixing it with other fruits.
