Coconut Blueberry Pops
Mi carnio is currently addicted to Coconut water. He buys them by the dozen, stashes them in the fridge and enjoys them in the evening with sunflower seeds. He makes sure to express his love for them with each can he drinks, as if I have never tried coconut water.. c’mon dude get with the program.
I tell him he’s arrived a little late to the agua de coco party I’ve been enjoying cold glasses of it since childhood. Poor guy his childhood was spent on a ranch in South Texas, this life left little time to travel into Mexico, so he never had the chance to enjoy the sweet flavors of a Summer in Mexico.
So I let him enjoy his coconut water and steal a bit to make pops!!
I recently had the chance to try out the Zoku Quick Pop Maker and MAN was it fun! A fresh, frozen pop in my hand in less than 10 minutes (be sure to chill your juice for faster freeze time). A paleta lover’s drem come true.
And guess what?
Well, my friend Heather from Girlichef and I have teamed up with Zoku to give one away. Because you deserve a little taste of a Summer in Mexico and darn it’s looking like this summer is going to a hot one, so let’s cool off with POPS!!
- 2 cups coconut water
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons agave optional
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- Combine coconut water lime juice and agave; whisk to dissolve agave. Chill.
If using Zoku:
Remove Zoku Quick Pop Maker from the freezer. Insert sticks and place desired blueberries in mold (about 4 on each side) pour the chilled juice base into each cavity until you reach the fill line. Let freeze completely and remove the pops with the Super Tool. Repeat with remaining juice.
If using a paleta mold:
Pour fresh juice into your paleta mold, add blueberries and freeze for about 1 hour. Insert Popsicle sticks and freeze until solid, about 3 hours. To release paletas run your mold under warm water.
So, what is YOUR favorite type of ice pop, popsicle, and/or paleta – and how badly would you like to have one in your hand in less than 10 minutes!? The awesome team at ZOKU is providing TWO of their Quick Pop Makers, one each for my friend Heather of Girlichef and myself to give away! How awesome is that?
In honor of the Summer of the Popsicle, we are holding our giveaways together…and you have all sorts of chances to win. Simply complete as many of the entry steps as you wish in the rafflecopter form below (it’s the same one on both of our sites). Best of luck!

Coconut Cream or root beer float! 10 minutes would be awesome!!!!Liz L
Well, my favorite ones are the standard sandia ones (made with water), but I am willing to try a new twist on them, such as:
My mom used to fix peaches and cream popsicles: vanilla pudding pops with fresh Georgia peaches in the summertime…craving one right now!

Many many thanks for sharing
Coconut ice-cream!!! Really most yammi to me. Like it so much. I’ll buy this device for my children. Thanks
We love all kinds of ice pops. Here is one we enjoy when we have homemade limoncello on hand.
Yum! As my sisters and I were growing up, Mom would make paletas for us every summer. Thank God for the long summers in south Texas! Every time we got together, that was what we would ask her to make for us . Mom passed away in February , we will miss our tradition.

Chips That Pass in the Night: Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles
My absolute favorite is a rice-pudding paleta: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Rice-Pudding-Ice-Pops-Paletas-de-Arroz-con-Leche
I have GOT to have one of these machines! I am a paleta-holic. My favorite is limon con tajín…no, jamaica…no, mandarina…no, arroz con leche…no, rompope con pasitas…no, sandia con pepino…um… are you getting the picture?! I would make a different flavor paleta every day if I had a Zoku!
Chantilly Patiño says
Omg…my favorite is arroz con leche! We used to have a little paleteria by our house and I had just about every flavor. It’s the best! 🙂
