Not a thought of an ice cream goes by that I don’t remember a famous scene from Jim Jarmusch’s Down by Law movie and even more famous scene where Roberto Benigni recites his English lessons. “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” Oh, I love this movie. And Roberto Benigni. And John Lurie and Tom Waits, of course, who were also reciting with Roberto too.
Luckily for my neighbours, while making these ice pops I didn’t start reciting out loud my English lessons. Rather settled for humming the Tom Waits’ song. Oh, “You’re innocent when you dream”. I love that voice. Like an old, rusty rasp, so desperate, so dark, but so alive and yearning.
So enough of my cinematographic and music preferences and back to the sweets.
This is a delice to dream of, to dream while eating it.
Fresh berries, so vibrant and beautiful both in looks and tastes, coconut milk, so silky in its creamy coconutty texture. Ok, coconutty may not be a proper word but still, you know what I mean. Ice cream, I scream, you’ll scream for this ice cream.
Because it’s so simple that this probably may not be a recipe at all. Rather a combination of qualities that comes along together so great. Smash the fruit with a fork, add coconut milk, some sweetener and lemon juice if you like, freeze, and that’s it.
Do you scream for ice cream?
Fresh and vibrant berries along with creamy, silky and utmost deliciousness of coconut milk make this simple Berry Coconut Ice Pops so great!
- 1 cup blackberries or bluberries. Or any berries.
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
Put everything in the food processor, whizz a few times till everything combines nicely. Do not overmix so you still get little pieces of berries. You can smash the fruit with a fork also and then stir well till you like the consistency.
Pour the mass into the ice pops moulds. Depending of the size of the moulds you'll get 4 - 6. I got 6 smaller pops.
Freeze for few hours or overnight.
Before serving, put the moulds under warm running water or just leave them at the room temperature for a while so you take the pops easy.
Share with your loved ones and enjoy!
Don’t forget to pin this for later! Or for making it right now 🙂
