These creamy coconut fig popsicles are a combo of coconut cream and bananas. They’re creamy and dairy-free. They’re also naturally sweetened.
I never really had an appreciation for popsicles until after I had children. I’ve heard there are some children who have to be force-fed because they don’t like to eat, but I’m not sure I believe that such a child exists. I mean, both of mine won’t stop eating. I literally have uttered the words, “Why are you asking for lunch? We just finished breakfast!”
Now that they’re entering their teenage years, the demand for food has only increased. I truly have had to be more intentional about making sure there are lots of snacks and treats in the house—Like, all the time.
These frozen treats are great because, unlike fresh produce (which seems to go bad a few days after you bring it home), popsicles keep in the freezer for weeks, making a great ready-made snack or treat for the kids to grab whenever they get the munchies. Plus it’s a popsicle. What kid doesn’t like popsicles?!
I love making these homemade because it gives you control over what goes in them. Simple ingredients, like coconut, banana, almond butter, pure maple syrup or honey, and fresh figs are what these consist of. If you’re not a fan of figs or can’t find them in your area, feel free to use another fruit in its place, like sliced banana, kiwi, berries, etc.
I have a popsicle maker similar to this one.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! If you make them be sure to snap a pic and tag me on Instagram so I can see your creation!
