Creamy and sweet, these Strawberry Coconut Ice Pops are a great way to cool down in the hot summer sun!
Who loves popsicles? Well, I know we sure do! We love to make them at home because we can make what we want and change up the flavors. Plus I can limit how much sugar I include.
I had the chance to try these IceWabanga Ice Pop Molds (how fun is that name?) we went straight to the kitchen and whipped up some popsicles.It took mere seconds to whip these up because we honestly know how much we love them anyway. We’ve made them before and they kinda happened on accident the first time. But then we kept making them and changing them up and this is our final delicious ice pop.
I find myself drawn to popsicle molds that have wooden sticks, however this set is similar to another one I have that I really like. So I was open to trying it out.
I was super happy with the results. After a quick dip in some water, the popsicles released smoothly. They were very easy to clean out and I was able to wash them in the dishwasher on the top rack.
This set includes an ice pop mold that makes six popsicles and two push-pop style molds as a bonus. We pureed some fruit and allowed our small fry (5 1/2 months old) to cool off on a hot day with those. He loved them and he was impressively able to hold them by himself, allowing him to decide when he wanted a taste or not. Plus they are silicone so they aren’t super cold on the outside and we were able to simply cap them and pop it back in the freezer for later.
The popsicle “stick” part of the mold is made of plastic, so it’s 100% resusable which is nice, because it means I just wash and resuse. No panic when I am out of sticks.
The only problem I have with this ice pop mold is that it’s not made of a thick plastic, but rather a bendable (slightly) plastic. So when your popsicle molds are full, you have to be VERY careful carrying them. I fill my molds to the top, so I had some spillage when trying to move the molds. Also when you push the stick on and try to secure the lid, it bends down in the middle a little. It’s workable you just have to be careful.

Also, if you want to release the ice pops easily, submerge almost to the top (not completely) in lukewarm water for about 1-2 minutes and then slowly slide popsicle out. Enjoy these Strawberry Coconut Ice Pops!
