Coconut Guava Popsicles

Since we don’t have family in the area, we rarely get drop-by visitors. But we were in for a huge surprise this weekend when Sam’s sister, brother-in-law and nephew drove up from California and showed up at our doorstep Thursday afternoon. Sam and I are probably the least spontaneous people, but we were happy to reorganize our weekend around our unexpected visitors. Our plans quickly shifted to focus around kid-friendly fun, like walks in the park, running through fountains, and eating popsicles until we got brain freeze. All in all a pretty fabulous 4th of July.

Plus, our guests were kind enough to bring the California sun with them. We had incredible weather – which isn’t a given in the Northwest – and it made sightseeing and playing tourist really easy. At the end of the day, all we wanted was something cold to help us cool off. And my homemade Coconut Guava Popsicles totally hit the spot. If you’re feeling the heat in your neck of the woods, I highly recommend giving these puppies a shot. With three simple ingredients, they’re sure to hit the spot. 

TIP: Don’t have popsicle molds? Try using paper cups!

Ingredients
1 can coconut milk
1 T agave syrup
1 can guava juice (I used Kern’s Guava Nectar)

Instructions
Start by pouring the guava juice into your popsicle molds to fill about halfway. Freeze the mold for 2 hours or until the guava begins freezing (if you don’t wait long enough, the flavors will mix together and not create layers. Equally delicious, just not the same effect).
Mix together the coconut milk and agave syrup, and pour into the molds to fill the remainder of each popsicle. Place the mold back in the freezer for another 2 hours, and then insert popsicle sticks into the molds.
Leave the molds in the freezer for another 5-ish hours until popsicles are fully frozen.
To remove the popsicles from the tray, run warm water over bottom of tray (being careful not to get popsicles wet) until popsicles can easily slide out of mold. Enjoy immediately, or wrap in wax paper to freeze and enjoy later!
