How to make: Fruity Chia Seed Coconut Popsicles
These coconut popsicles are super easy to make requiring only about 25ish minutes to prep.
It’s starts with a simple coconut milk base lightly sweetened with maple syrup (feel free to use your favourite sweetener) and brightened up with a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix in a few tablespoons of chia seeds and set aside for about 20 minutes to allow the seeds to gel up. Gelled chia seeds will stay suspended in the popsicles rather than sink to the bottom.
Once your base is ready to go just add it to a popsicle mould with your choice of fruit. I used sliced strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries but you can play around with what you’ve got and make these your own. Sliced peaches, blackberries, mango – throw in whatever you’ve got!
And then freeze! Easy as that!
These popsicles are fresh, fruity, healthy to boot so you can feel good about eating them.

Calories: 108 kcal
- 1 14 oz can full fat coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons | 30 ml maple syrup (more or less to taste)
- 2 tablespoons | 30 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons black chia seeds (you can also use white but won’t get the same speckled effect)

In a medium sized mixing bowl or jar with a pourable spout, mix together the coconut milk, maple syrup, lemon juice and chia seeds. Whisk together until completely combined.
Place in the fridge for about 20 minutes to give time for the chia seeds to gel up.
Carefully add the rest of your berries to the popsicles mold until the molds are almost full. Add the popsicle sticks, cover and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours or until completely frozen.
Prep time is about 25 minutes but freeze time is at least 6 hours
