We are thick into summer now. Hot, humid, long days are the new normal. Lazy weekends are spent at the beach or lounging by the pool. And frozen treats are a serious must have.

These Blueberry-Ginger Coconut Cheesecake Popsicles are the perfect way to say hello to the first day of July. They are creamy, cool and loaded with fresh, seasonal blueberries.

And do you know what else these popsicles would be perfect for? How about for a virtual baby shower? One in which the mom-to-be is expecting a baby boy and is also a self-proclaimed coconut-addict.

So SURPRISE Zainab! These are for you! Today we are celebrating you and your growing family with a coconut-themed virtual baby shower. Hooray!

Blueberry-Ginger-Coconut-Popsicles-3

Zainab is the talented baker behind the drool-worthy blog, Blahnik Baker. If you’re not already familiar with Zainab’s blog, then head on over there and get ready for some serious cravings to hit you right smack in the face. Her creations are seriously off the charts!

Zainab and I connected through our blogs almost two years ago. And then become “in real life” friends when we met at a conference this past November. In addition to our undying devotion to baked good, Zainab and I also share something else in common: we’re both scientist. Well, OK technically I’m not a scientist anymore. But I was in the trenches for a long time before deciding to do this whole food blogging thing. So the two of us totally get each other.

I couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with SO MANY (seriously, look at that list!) other fabulous food bloggers today to honor Zainab and her baby boy. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the post and check out what everyone else “brought” to the virtual baby shower. I know you’ll find some awesome tropical-themed recipe inspiration!

Cheers,

Liz

Blueberry-Ginger Coconut Cheesecake Popsicles

Yield: Makes 8-10 popsicles, depending on your mold

Blueberry-Ginger Coconut Cheesecake Popsicles

Ingredients

  • For the Blueberry-Ginger Layer
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 to 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • Juice from 1/2 lime

  • For the Coconut Cheesecake Layer
  • 1 (14 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (or other liquid sweetener)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Cook the blueberries-ginger mixture. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all of the ingredients for the blueberry-ginger layer. Bring the mixture to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Make the coconut cheesecake layer. Add all of the ingredients for the coconut cheesecake layer to your blender. Blend on high until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a clean bowl. Rinse out your blender.
  3. Blend the blueberry-ginger layer. Add the cooled blueberry-ginger mixture to your blender. Blend on high until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a clean bowl.
  4. Assemble the popsicles. Spoon about 1-2 tablespoons of the blueberry-ginger layer into each of your popsicle molds. Transfer the molds to your freezer for 10-15 minutes to give them time to firm up slightly. Then spoon about 2 tablespoons of the coconut cheesecake layer on top of the blueberry-ginger layer. Transfer the molds to your freezer for another 10-15 minutes. Repeat each layer one more time, filling the molds almost to the top. Place the popsicles in your freezer for about 30 minutes, allowing the popsicles to partially set before inserting wooden sticks or dowels. Then continue to freeze until completely solid, about 4-6 hours.
  5. Remove the popsicles from their molds before serving. You can run a little warm water over the molds to help loosen the popsicles from their molds.

    Reply

    • I still consider myself a science-enthusiast, even though I’m not doing research science anymore. There are several scientist-food bloggers buzzing around. I guess it’s a common career trajectory. Ha!
