If you’re looking for popsicle ideas you are in the right place. For this tropical popsicle recipe I’m using only a few simple but natural ingredients and coconut milk as the base. The result is just delicious, but lighter on your stomach. Plus my recipe contains a “secret” ingredient that aids digestion.

Sadly but the ice cream quality or the popsicles sold in stores has been changed with cheaper and low quality ingredients. They are full of gums, artificial unhealthy sweeteners, food dyes and other highly processed ingredients.

Sugar Free Tropical Popsicles / Ice Pops

Fruits are already sweet enough, so there is really no need to add more sweetness in this recipe. Some fruits are naturally sweeter than others so in this recipe I have the right combination of sweetness in order to make no sugar added popsicles. The strawberries give some natural acidity and the mix of mango, pineapple and banana provides creaminess and sweetness.

Creamy Sugar Free Popsicles With Tropical Flavors

I prefer these tropical ice pops extra creamy so, I’m also adding a non-dairy milk – coconut milk (actually the solid part – cream only). A higher fat content is the best for a silky smooth dairy free popsicles. 

Fat freezes at a different rate than water, using a higher-fat milk will result in a creamier, less icy ice cream. I like this brand of coconut milk because is BPA and guar gum free also has up to 18% fat. Another option is to use coconut cream which is much thicker and richer.

Choose Your Popsicle Molds

Making popsicles instead of freezing in a dish, I think is easier, less messy and convenient to eat.

Any kind of popsicle mold works actually. I used this pop molds which are BPA and phthalate free, but if you don’t have the means, just use a regular container. Keep in mind it will be a challenge to scoop out though.

How To Make Sugar Free Tropical Popsicles

Making these tropical ice pops it’s pretty easy and quick. You just blend up the fruit, add the extra ingredients like coconut cream if you want extra creaminess and pour the mixture straight into the popsicle molds.

How To Make Sugar Free Tropical Popsicles

Transfer to the freezer. Once it’s frozen (approximately 8 hours or overnight), pull the stick out of the base to remove the individual mold along with the pop. Run the mold under warm/hot water for about 30–60 seconds to release the content. And enjoy!

Tips For Perfect Fruit Popsicles Without Sugar And dairy

  1. Use the ripest, sweetest fruits. The riper the fruit the sweeter the popsicles will be.
  2. Fresh fruit works best because it doesn’t require any liquid to be added. But the addition of coconut cream will make the mixture more pourable. 
  3. If using frozen fruit, the texture will be creamier and will stay creamier as the solid crystals of ice are already formed, plus will need less freezing time.
  4. There are nearly endless ideas of combining the fruits. Feel free to combine your favorite fruits.
