Hazaaaaaah! The popsicle hath made its debut on The Roasted Root.

For realskis, this is the first popsicle recipe I ever did post, if you can believe it.

Last week, I got a liiiiiiiittle carried away in the frozen desserts department. I was working on a couple of popsicle freelance projects, which of course inspired me to make popsicles for thisshereblog, which of course inspired me to make ice cream, which of course inspired me to make no-bake vegan tarts (of which you will see soon). All related by two common ingredients: coconut milk and maple syrup, but of course.

And now I have frozen desserts to feed an army slash survive the zombie apocalypse slash last me the entire year. Send help.

If you’ve never made popsicles with coconut milk, I highly suggest you try it! They turn out rich, soft, and creamy and the dessert is healthful while quenching your sweet tooth. I whipped up these strawberry popsicles using ripe strawberries I had stuck in the freezer a couple of weeks ago. You guys, these are just the easiest things in the whole world to make. And the flavor is REAL! Like is sucker punches you in the tongue buds before you know what hit ya real.

All you do is throw ripe strawberries, full-fat coconut milk, and pure maple syrup in the blender. Blend until smooth, scoop the mixture into your popsicle molds (<-amazon affiliate link, just sayin’), freeze for 3 to 4 hours and WHAMO! Party in your mouth trap.

The best part: every lick of it is healthy. You’ve got the vitamins and antioxidants from those strawberries, healthy fat from that coconut milk, and all the natural sweetness for a refined sugar-free frozen dessert.

…So eat 17 of them.

…Just kidding, the recipe only makes 10.

I had a difficult time resisting the temptation to not pour the mixture into a glass and drink it like a smoothie or milkshake. And since we’re on the topic of milkshakes, I bet you could use this exact recipe for a sorbet/ice cream-like apparatus in your ice cream maker. You best believe I’ll be trying that out soon!

Strawberry Coconut Milk Popsicles

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 10 popsicles
Author: Julia



  1. Add all of the ingredients for the popsicles to a high-powered blender. Blend until completely smooth. Taste mixture for sweetness. Add more pure maple syrup if desired.
  2. Spoon the strawberry coconut mixture into ten 3-ounce popsicle molds. Use a spoon to tap down on the mixture to get out any air pockets. Place cover on mold and insert popsicle sticks into the center of each mold.
  3. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours, until completely frozen (note: if you use fresh strawberries, freeze for 5 to 6 hours).
  4. When ready to eat, run the outside of the popsicle mold under hot water for 10 to 15 seconds. Remove the cover and gently pull on the popsicle sticks. Popsicles should release easily.

Recipe Notes

*If using store-bought frozen strawberries, add more maple syrup to taste.

    Oh man I need all of these. Accuweather real feel is currently 124 or some ridiculousness like that. ALL THE POPSICLES! 🙂

  2. Izzy

    I can’t believe I have never made popsicles with coconut milk before!! Craziness! These looks so creamy! And the shot of the mixture in the blender, I could just eat that with a spoon! I gotta get on this coconut milk popsicle train this summer 🙂

    If you replace with frozen blueberries, does the quantity change? Need to use my wild blueberries to make room for this years.

    1. Julia Post author

      That’s a great question. I would probably use a little less – perhaps 4 cups instead of 5. I’d also up the coconut milk to 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups and use more pure maple syrup since blueberries aren’t as sweet as strawberries. I also wouldn’t skip the lime (or lemon) juice because the blueberry popsicles I’ve made have tasted bland without it. Let me know how they turn out!!

    What the what! First popsicles ever on Roasted Root? How is that possible! Glad you’ve broken through that barrier though. Now we can have all popsicles, all the time! I love me some frozen, melty, drippy, summery treat. These are gorgeous – love the color!

    I feel like you have really opened the pandora’s box of popsicle-ing. And i can’t wait to see what else is inside. If they’re anything like these…we’re in for a tasty summer!

      P.S. Blender ordered. Bought popsicle holder thing-ies. Ready to make these bad boys. Well, as soon as my blender gets here (went with Blendtec because the Vitamix was too tall to fit in my cabinet and a certain male in the household is anti-things-sitting-out-and-collecting-dust.) So, yeah. It will be great for what we will use it for. I wish I had one right now, but I shall be patient.

      I used an emersion blender and it worked well. I did not have any lime, so I used 1/4 tsp vanilla. Also, ony 4 cups fresh, chopped strawberries. It is strawberry season where I live, woohoo! I added a cup of frozen blue berries. Delish and red, white, and blue, HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
