These pops are among the foods that are always in our freezer. They’re easy to make and are the perfect pick-me-up on a hot day, or a day when the sun is shining through the window and the rays are just warm enough that you can pretend it’s summer. If you have children always clamoring for ice cream and sweets, mastering this recipe is even more a necessity for you!

There are few things more revitalizing and bright-tasting than coconut milk. Blend with bananas for body, then add in just a touch of healthful sweetness and beautifully abundant vanilla. Pineapple and kiwi continue the tropical theme, and blueberries simply go damn well with everything, in flavor and in color! Of course, like most everything else in life, these pops need a pinch of salt, too.

But we think it’s our Erbology Organic Tigernut Granola On the Go that really makes this recipe. The texture of this granola is something special. It’s chewy and wholesome, and a little goes a very long, very satisfying way. It’s completely substantial, packed as it is with nutrients and fiber. An interesting counterpoint to the sunny, fresh flavors of the other ingredients in these pops, the granola makes for a recipe with some serious character.

Elegance is nice, but fun is essential. Try buying molds in novelty shapes for the pops – perfect if you’re making them for a party or for the kids!

Don’t forget to spare a thought for those unsung heroes, the popsicle sticks. There are sustainable bamboo sticks on the market, or recycled paper ones embedded with flower seeds. Yet another possibility is sticks shaped like endangered rainforest creatures, with messages that you see more of as your popsicle is eaten. Availability depends on where in the world you are. However, there are definitely options out there. There are also reusable individual molds that you can bring out and about with you and eat the pop straight from, instead of having to extricate the delectable sweetness from the mold, stick intact, before you can eat it. We do have some tips on that later on, though…

Like most of our recipes, this one is ripe for fine tuning. We love a berry pop, with blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. You could also use different variations of the granola. The type with aronia berries would be a perfect match for a berry pop, but we have to say that the dark chocolate kind would add extra gratification. You could also switch maple syrup in for the honey or agave nectar. Finely chopped fresh mint could be a wonderful addition to a berry pop too.

Finally, you will have to make sure that you can get the ice pop out of the mold without breaking it! If you have any issues, just immerse the entire mold, up to the top opening, in a bowl of warm tap water for 30-45 seconds. Then jiggle gently…. and savor fully.

Here's how you make it

  1. Blend your ingredients together in a mixer.
  2. Add diced fresh fruits on the bottom of each ice pop and then pour the mixture in the mold.
  3. Chop the granola and generously sprinkle on each ice pop.
  4. Freeze for 4-6 hours or until the pop is frozen solid. Defrost for about 5 minutes before taking the pop out so you don’t accidentally pull the sticks out. Enjoy!
