Hey everyone! I’ve been absent for a while and definitely late to the summer recipe game, but better late than never! With a move coming my way and my son’s birthday, having the time to eat and sleep has been a luxury but I’m BACK! Have I ever told you how much my son likes popsicles? If I haven’t, you should know he loves popsicles probably more than he loves me. Honestly, I don’t blame him. During these blistering hot (I’m serious, it’s hitting 112 degrees today and it’s too hot to breathe) summer months, nothing cools you down like a good ol’ popsicle. Hell, I like popsicles and guess what else I like? A little booze. With that said, this week, we are making Drunk Unicorn Popsicles.
Drunk Unicorn Popsicles are boozed and catered for adults. These are completely paleo friendly(sans sprinkles… I like my food pretty). There are a lot of buzz around using pitaya powder and blue spirulina. Those are definitely a healthy alternative and I recommend using them if you don’t like alcohol. Anyhow, I’m going to keep this article fairly short before the unicorn runs away. Let’s get POPPING (get it??)!
Paleo Drunk Unicorn Popsicles:
1 – Red fleshed Dragon Fruit (Mashed)
4-1/2 Cups – Sprouts Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1/4 Cup – Blue Curacao Liqueur
1 Cup – Honey
2 Tbsp – Fresh Lemon Juice
Various Unicorn Colored Sprinkles (Optional)
Drunk Unicorn Popsicle Instructions:
2.) Add blue curacao liqueur into first container, 1/2 tsp guar gum and blend with emulsion blender.
3.) Add mashed dragon fruit and lemon juice into second container of coconut milk with 1/2 tsp guar gum. Blend with emulsion blender and strain the seeds out.
4.) Add 1/2 tsp into last container of coconut milk and blend. Sit all ingredients in fridge to cool for 10 minutes.
5.) Use a tbsp and spoon the 3 different colored coconut milks into the popsicle mold in a random order. The guar gum will thicken the consistency of the liquid so they don’t blend together when in the popsicle mold, but if you prefer, you can skip the gum and make layered popsicles.
6.) After you fill up the popsicle mold, sit them in the freezer to freeze for 6 hours to overnight. Once frozen, soak the mold in warm water for 20-30 seconds for easy removal.
7.) Once out, drizzle with white chocolate drizzle and quickly put on sprinkles before the drizzle solidifies. There you have it, my Drunk Unicorn Popsicles. Until next time, eat up, my friends!!!
