Ingredients

2 1/4 cups full-fat coconut milk
2 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin powder
1/2 cup maple syrup (optional)
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon alcohol-free, gluten-free, pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Directions

  1. Place 1/4 cup of the coconut milk in a medium heatproof bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over it and set it aside to bloom for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 cups coconut milk with the maple syrup, lemon zest, cardamom, vanilla and sea salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Whisk the softened gelatin into the saucepan and continue whisking until all of it is dissolved.
  3. Allow the mixture to chill for 15 to 20 minutes. Place 3 to 4 raspberries in each ice pop mold, then fill with the liquid. Place the pops in the freezer to set for a minimum of 4 hours.
