When I posted them on Instagram people went crazy and kept asking for the recipe: Weird enough, this wasn’t supposed to be posted on my blog and become a recipe, but readers rule!!!
I cannot call this “gelato” to be honest because we, Italians, are very fussy about it. Gelato is as much important for us as our beloved pizza or caffè, so when I’m abroad it’s very hard to find a proper Italian gelato unless I find a proper Italian gelateria!!
But the next time I’ll be away from Italy, I’ll make these delicious summer-berry coconut cream popsicles for sure.
The BERRIES and COCONUT CREAM POPSICLES are
made with fresh products
made with fresh fruit

refreshing and cooling

perfect as a summer dessert or snack

- For the marbled effect: Combine 2-3 tablespoons coconut cream with 5-6 mashed blueberries or raspberries to obtain the desired color. (See notes)°
- Add 2 cups berries in the remaining coconut cream and mix gently so as not to break the fruit.
