With only two ingredients; these coconut water raspberry popsicles are the perfect treat to cool things down on a hot summer day. They are just the right amount of sweetness from the freshly crushed raspberries and super hydrating from the natural coconut water (with no added sugar, might I add).

I seriously don’t even feel like it’s right to claim this recipe as my own, it’s just too simple and too easy! You fill the popsicle mould in two batches to achieve a fun ombre effect. And I love how the homemade popsicles each turn out a little different.

I switched out the regular popsicle sticks that the moulds came with and used wood sticks from the dollar store (they just look better if you ask me). You can use either, you just need the popsicles to set a little before you add the wood sticks.

Ingredients

It doesn’t get any better than this! Only 2 simple ingredients to make your own homemade popsicles.

  • Coconut water
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries

Variations

You can use this recipe as a guideline to create your own varieties. It’s a great way to enjoy fresh fruit in the summer and to pair it with fresh coconut water to cool off on hot days! Here are some ideas to inspire you:

  • Change up the fruit; fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or a combination
  • Add a citrus zest like fresh lime juice, lemon juice, or orange
  • Make it a creamy base; substitute coconut water for coconut cream or full fat coconut milk
  • Add coconut shavings or coconut meat

Tips on Making Coconut Water Raspberry Popsicles

  1. It’s best to use room temperature coconut water.
  2. Have patience. In order to achieve the ombre look you need to add the liquid in two stages. First, is with just the coconut water and the second is with the raspberry puree and water. In the first stage, you want the coconut water to be partly frozen so when you pour the second stage in it will slowly make its way through as it freezes. This is what will give you that cool ombre effect.
  3. Make sure to leave a few bigger pieces of fresh raspberries.
  4. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries. If using frozen raspberries break them into small pieces and make more of a raspberry puree.
  5. If using wood sticks timing can be a little tricky. You want the popsicle slushy enough to hold the stick upright and freeze in place. If it’s too liquidy the wood stick will not stay in place, if you wait too long you won’t be able to push the stick into the popsicle.

How To Make Coconut Water Raspberry Popsicles

Step One: Simply fill coconut water into your favourite popsicle moulds. Fill each mould up halfway and place them in the freezer for approx. 50 minutes.

Step Two: In a bowl gently crush some raspberries, leave some raspberries in big pieces too. Add 1-2 cups of coconut water and top up popsicle moulds with raspberry mixture. Place the moulds back in the freezer for another 30 minutes or so. Add wood popsicle sticks and leave to set. If you’re not using wood sticks but the sticks that come with your mould you can skip this step.

FAQ’s

Can I make popsicles without a popsicle mould?

If you don’t have a popsicle mould you can make your own by using paper or plastic cups and wood sticks.

To prevent ice crystals in homemade popsicles avoid over-freezing and make sure they are covered or sealed properly. Freezing the popsicles for too long can contribute to the formation of ice crystals. Over-freezing can lead to a grainy texture and increased ice crystal formation.

How long does it take for homemades popsicles to freeze completely?

Freezing time for homemade popsicles can vary depending on several factors, including the ingredients used, the size of the popsicles, and the temperature of your freezer. Generally, it takes about 4 to 6 hours for popsicles to freeze completely.
