Recipe: Coconut strawberry swirl popsicles (dairy and sugar free)


250g (1/2 lb) fresh strawberries

1/2 cup sugar free vanilla syrup 

1 can coconut milk

1 tbspn Balsamic Vinegar 



10 moulds with sticks


  • This is not a long process, before you start make sure you have your popsicle moulds and enough flat space in your freezer to place them. 
  • I use Torani sugar free vanilla syrup for making sweets like this that do not bake, it ensures lack of graininess from powdered sweeteners. 
  • If you do not have such a thing in your house it's easy to replace with 1/4 cup spoon for spoon sweetener (Erythritol, Sucralose, Stevia) dissolved in 1/4 cup water with 2 tspns vanilla essence
  • Wash and half strawberries

  • Add to a small blender with half the sugar free vanilla syrup and the vinegar
  • Blend until smooth then strain into a small jug (pitcher) to remove the seeds

  • In another slightly larger jug (pitcher) add the coconut milk and the remaining vanilla syrup, stir until well combined
  • Pour or spoon alternating layers of the strawberry and coconut mixtures into your moulds, 2 tbsps at a time is good. 

  • Your mixtures may penetrate each other due to density differences you will not end up with exactly layers, to get that swirled look take a skewer and run in a figure 8 or circular motion in the mould
  • Place in freezer for 8 hours before consumption. If you make this at lunch or before it should be ready for a healthy after dinner treat
