Coconut Berry Popsicles Recipe

A few weeks ago I shared Gwyneth Paltrows Coconut Berry Sherbet recipe. This sherbet has become my new favorite summer treat. It is so easy to make and tastes so good! I decided to adapt this recipe and make Coconut Berry Popsicles!

To me summer is all about Popsicles. They remind me of being a kid and running after the ice cream truck in hopes of getting a treat. As an adult I thankfully do not have to run after the ice cream truck and can make amazing popsicles at home.

Nutella Popsicle Recipe

Nutella is one of my Husbands favorite food groups. I thought it would be fun to make a Nutella Popsicle Recipe for the summer. It get so hot in Spokane and there is nothing quite like sitting down and enjoying an ice cold popsicle.

I recently purchased a Zoku Duo Quick Pop Maker and have been having so much fun making popsicles. I have a big list of ideas for new popsicle flavors so look for new recipes coming this summer.

I love making recipes with Nutella. It provides a fantastic flavor and is so easy to work with. A few of my favorite Nutella Recipes are

3 ingredient Nutella Cookies
Nutella No Bake Cheesecake
2 Ingredient Nutella Fudge

How to Freeze Strawberries

 

How to Freeze Strawberries

This summer we stocked up on great strawberries from Zaycon foods. Knowing there was no way we could eat 40 pounds of strawberries before they went bad I decided to freeze the majority of them. I am so excited to have a full freezer of fresh fruit this winter. Strawberries are really easy to freeze.

Here is the process I did to freeze 40 pounds of strawberries.

1. Wash and dry the strawberries

2. Pull out the stems and slice the strawberries in half
I used this super cool technique to remove the strawberry stems

3. Place the strawberries on a baking pan cut side up.
I line the baking pan with paper towels in case there is any moisture or juices.

4. Once the strawberries are frozen transfer them to a labeled freezer bag.

How to Freeze Buttermilk

 

How to Freeze Buttermilk

I love using buttermilk with recipes but always find that I have about half the container left over. I hate to throw out the buttermilk especially when it is not cheap and I have never seen a coupon for buttermilk. I started saving my leftover buttermilk by freezing it. Each well of an ice tray holds 2 tablespoons of buttermilk. The buttermilk freezes great and I can just pull out exactly how many tablespoons I need for a recipe.

What you will need

a ice cube tray
buttermilk

Directions.
Measure out how many tablespoons it takes to fill your ice cube tray. Ours takes 2 tablespoons of Buttermilk
Fill the trays and place in the freezer until frozen
Transfer to a freezer bag and label with date.
