*this recipe requires some prep work ahead of time.

Ingredients:

2 cups cashews *

1/3 cup coconut cream *

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup lemon juice

¼ cup pure maple syrup

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

2/3 cup strawberry jam

*Prep Work

  • Soak cashews in water for 4-6 hours. If short on time (or you forget) soak for 1 hour in HOT water.
  • 2 hours before making popsicles place a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge.

Directions:

  1. Drain and rinse soaked cashews and pat dry with a clean dish towel.
  2. Place cashews in a high speed blender. Add coconut cream, oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla, and jam.

*for the coconut cream simply remove coconut milk from the fridge without shaking. Use a can opener to remove the top of the can. Scoop out the white cream from the top, careful not to scoop the coconut water (save for smoothies).

  1. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into popsicle molds and place in the freezer overnight.
  2. Carefully remove frozen popsicles by running a little warm water over the molds
  3. Enjoy!
