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)
- Yield: 10 pops 1x
For the cashew milk
- 1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least hours, rinsed and drained.
- 2 ½ 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
- ¼ cup caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ½ cup prepared cashew milk
Make the cashew milk
- 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.
- 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.
- Set aside.
Make the blueberry filling
- Combine the blueberries, caster sugar, vanilla, and ½ cup of the prepared cashew milk in your blender and blend until everything is combined and slightly chunky.
Make your popsicles
- 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.
