Blueberry and Cashew Milk Popsicles

 

Did you know that Billy of Wit & Vinegar has declared it #popsicleweek ?! I mean, hello…genius! Seriously, I love popsicles and seeing as how I have a stockpile of popsicle recipes just waiting to share here with all of you I couldn’t help but ask Billy if I could join in the fun.

 

Billy being the nice LA neighbor that he is said of course and here we are…sharing popsicles like a champ with the other 39 bloggers that are participating. Woohoo, virtual high fives all around!!! I happen to be completely smitten with these blueberry and cashew milk popsicles. They aren’t too sweet and I like that I get creamy cashew milk in some bites,  blueberry deliciousness in the next, and then a total mash up of both after that.

 

Of course you can totally stir it all together before you freeze them and just have a mouth full of everything in each bite..I wouldn’t blame you, I have had them that way too. It’s good…ok, it’s better than good…it’s grrrrrrrrrrreat! There really is no wrong here…everything is right when it comes to popsicles.

Blueberry & Cashew Milk Popsicles (Gluten Free & Vegan)

  • Author: Beard And Bonnet
  • Yield: 10 pops 1x

Scale

Ingredients

For the cashew milk

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least hours, rinsed and drained.
  • 2 1/2 cups filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons light agave syrup, depending on how sweet you want the cashew milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt

For the Blueberry filling

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup prepared cashew milk

Instructions

Make the cashew milk

  1. Combine the soaked cashews, water, agave, vanilla, and sea salt in a high speed blender. If you are using a Vitamix or high-speed blender simply select variable 1 (the lowest setting), start the machine and slowly increase the speed to variable 10 (the highest setting). Blend for 2 minutes. No straining necessary.
  2. If you are not using a high-speed blender you will need to add a minute to the blend time and possibly strain your cashew milk through a nut milk bag , cheesecloth, or a fine mesh strainer.
  3. Set aside.

Make the blueberry filling

  1. Combine the blueberries, caster sugar, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of the prepared cashew milk in your blender and blend until everything is combined and slightly chunky.

Make your popsicles

  1. Fill your popsicle molds half way with cashew milk then add the blueberry puree until your molds are full. Place the mold in the freezer for about 1 hour and then insert the wooden popsicle sticks into the pops. Return to the freezer for another 4-6 hours until frozen solid.

    I feel like these are some moody, sulty pops. Like, they’re kinda mysterious, and they look like they just walked off the cover of a romance novel. With long flowing black locks that are kinda sea-wild. And green eyes. And they just like to hang out naked or draped in some artsy dropcloth getup 24/7. I have no idea where I’m going with this, but, uh, all good things. As in, I really dig ’em. *applause emojis for days and days* xo – Em
