These Homemade Berry Coconut Bomb Pops are refined sugar free and a yummy summer treat for toddlers, kids, and adults!
One of my favorite childhood memories is running to catch the ice cream truck that would jingle through our streets daily.
My all-time favorite ice cream treats to buy were the chocolate crunch bars, the screwball ice cream cups (with the gum ball at the bottom!), any of ice cream character bars on a stick (likely with gum ball eyes), or BOMB POPS!
I feel like Bomb Pops are one of those things like XXX that are just a symbol of a 90’s childhood. Or maybe even a childhood these days, idk.
Some day Lars will get to experience all the joys of the artificial Bomb Pops, but today is not that day. Today Lars gets something even better: homemade (refined sugar free) Bomb Pops! For all he knows, these are the original Bomb Pops.
Lars absolutely loves these popsicles. He actually loved them so much that I had to hide them in the basement freezer because any opening of the freezer led to a meltdown if he couldn’t have a popsicle.
The thing is, these are actually healthy enough that he *could* have them any time of the day, not just for dessert. The ingredients are simply strawberries, coconut milk, blueberries, honey, and lime. That’s it! But as anyone who knows anything about toddlerhood, popsicles are not the cleanliest of treats. And when we’re talking about strawberry and blueberry juice, these berry coconut bomb pops are basically a naked-except-for-a-diaper outdoor treat. I learned that after taking these photos.
In my mind, the mess is totally worth it to see him love a fun and healthy summer treat. And I’ll keep making them until the fateful day when he discovers the ice cream truck 😉
