If you are still holding onto summer and refuse to let it go, you might be interested in making some popsicles. To be more precise – Chia Seeds Blueberry Popsicles?
They are such a discovery and taste just as good as it sounds.
Chia seeds are super healthy. Normally, we add them to smoothies, milk or yogurt to get that nice, jelly pudding and eat it for breakfast.
But, chia seeds can be used in so many other foods.
I don’t, normally, find healthy food very tasty, buuuut, for some reason, I just love chia seeds.
This Chia Seed Blueberry Popsicles recipe is super easy & quick and, the most important part about it, it’s a healthy.
To make it even more healthy we are not using sugar but some other, healthier alternative (such as honey or agave syrup). Also, we use coconut milk but you can use any other of your preference.
And, there are some blueberries involved. If they are not your favorite, you can easily replace it with any other fruit that you like.
One more thing, to add a bit more of charm, we added just few drops of blue food coloring.
They look so pretty that way but, if you want to keep it as healthy as possible and are not really a fan of food coloring, this is totally optional. They will turn out to be beautiful any way.
Chia Seeds Blueberry Popsicles
- 250 ml coconut milk
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 150 ml blueberries
- 3 tsp agave syrup - (or any other sweetener - sugar, honey, stevia...)
- few drops blue food color - (optional)
- Dissolve 3 tbsp of chia seed in 250 ml of coconut milk and let it sit for some 15-20 minutes so the seeds absorb the milk
- Add blueberries and mix them in
- Add agave syrup (or any other sweetener) and try to taste (add more if you prefer it sweeter)
- If you want, add few drops of blue food color and whisk just a little so the cream is not colored evenly
- Pour into the popsicle mold and leave in the freezer for 6 hours approx.
- Once they are frozen, to easily remove your popsicles from the mold, place it for few seconds under the warm water.
- You can replace blueberries with any other fruit of your preference.
- The same goes for sweetener and milk - you can use any milk and anything that would boost the sweetness (can be honey, agave syrup, stevia, sugar...)
- As for food coloring - we normally don't use it but, sometimes we want our food to look extra pretty and colorful, so we add some additional color.
- Still, you can achieve the blue color by crushing or triturating your blueberries and not necessarily use the artificial color. However, they will come nice and pretty with or without additional color.Β
That was easy, wasn’t it?
And the taste is just incredible… so creamy, bubbly and fresh at the same time.
Haven’t tried them on kids (because we haven’t got any) but I bet they (kids in general) would go crazy about these popsicles. They just look so fun.
We did try them on our friends and they say they loved the taste (might be a lie).
Anyways, try them yourself or make them to someone special and who knows… maybe it becomes someone’s favorite.
If you don’t like chia seeds but you like popsicles – check out our Coconut Milk and Strawberry Ice Pops – equally cool, healthy, fresh and tasty.
