Equipment

  • Popsicle Mold and sticks

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut yogurt
  • 1 cup spring water filtered
  • 3-4 drops liquid stevia
  • 2 ½ - 3 cups ripe nectarine chunks skin on

Instructions

  • In a blender, combine the coconut yogurt, filtered water and liquid stevia.  Blend well and set aside.
  • Cut nectarines into ¼ inch to ⅛ inch slices and chunks and set aside.
  • Pour yogurt mixture into a measuring cup and pour a small amount into the bottom of the popsicle mold about ¼ cup full.  
  • Then add a few pieces of the fruit into the mold and push down allowing the yogurt to cover the fruit.  
  • Repeat with yogurt mixture and pour in ¼ cup full and then add more nectarines and push the fruit down with your fingers.  Keep repeating these two steps until the mold is full. Repeat with all other molds.
  • Cover the mold with the lid, add sticks and freeze overnight, or for at least 6 hours.
  • Once the pops are ready, remove from the freezer and run hot water over mold to loosen the top lid.  Pull lid off, and continue to run hot water down the sides, and bottoms of each mold to loosen the pops from the molds.
  • Store pops in a zip lock bag in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Notes

OPTIONAL: To make this treat more sweet, you can add 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup along with 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to these popsicles and blend in step 1 and eliminate the stevia.  //  Note that if you use maple syrup, it will no longer be a sugar-free sweet.  Also, note that if you use maple syrup you do not need to use stevia. // If you are allergic to coconut, feel free, and use unsweetened dairy Greek yogurt or any other plant-based yogurt alternative.  You have the option to use unsweetened or sweetened.  Or you can use unsweetened and add additional sweetener.  Go with your tastebuds.  // If you use a vanilla-flavored yogurt, do not add vanilla extract to this recipe. // The yogurt brands I love are Anita's and Coyo.  These are the brands I have tested this recipe with. //
