Summer Sunset Acai Popsicles
*Makes 6-8 popsicles
2 Tambor Acai Mix packs
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 frozen mango
1 tbsp coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 frozen banana
1 tbsp coconut milk
*For more sweetness and less tart, add a tbsp of honey into the strawberry layer blend and also into the mango layer blend.
First off, you’ll need a popsicle mold. We’re using one like this and love it.
Next, blend each layer separately in your Vitamix or similar high powered blender. After blending layer 1, pour or spoon it into your molds. Utilizing the spoon (a chopstick also works well for this part) try to make sure the blend is free of air bubbles. Stick the molds in the freezer while you blend layer 2. Add this layer on top of the last and repeat process over again with layer 3. To keep all colors true, rinse the blender out after each layer blend.
Fill the molds almost to the top with about a centimeter of room for the layers to expand. Place the aluminum top onto the mold and place your wooden popsicle sticks in each, leaving about 2″ sticking out.
Freeze overnight for best results. When taking them out, run a bit of hot water over the mold area to loosen each popsicle. And then enjoy!
