It’s hot out there! The perfect opportunity to whip up some of these berry coconut popsicles.
Growing up and even now, I have loved watching Disney movies. We grew up watching Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Robin Hood, Cinderella and The Jungle Book. To me those are the classic Disney movies. So I love how Disney has started recreating these classic as live action films. We loved the live version of Cinderella and we can’t wait to take the kids to see The Jungle Book.
Disney is known for it’s music and original songs in their movies and some of my favorite Disney songs come from the animated Jungle Book. My brother and I can still sing (almost) every word of the Jungle Book songs. The Bare Necessities is one of our favorites. I mean, who doesn’t love Baloo?!?!
So when my friends wanted to put together some fun ideas to celebrate the new Jungle Book movie, I knew I needed to create something in tribute of my favorite character Baloo. These Baloo Berry Coconut Popsicles are full of real berries and delicious fruit flavor.
- 3 TBL cream of coconut
- 2 TBL blue raspberry syrup
- 1 TBL lemon juice
- 2-3 cups white grape juice
- ¼ cup fresh blueberries
- ¼ cup fresh raspberries
- Popsicle mold
- In a blender, combine fresh blueberries, raspberries and ½ cup grape juice.
- Blend until smooth.
- Add berries and all other ingredients to a pitcher.
- Mix until all combined.
- Fill popsicle molds.
- (Add enough grape juice to fill all your molds. 2 cups was perfect for my 6 molds)
- Freeze until firm.
Check out what some of my friends are up to in celebration of the opening of the Jungle Book.
