Key Lime Popsicles (Vegan, Dairy-Free)
Recipe created and written by Sara Ayesh of White Kitchen Red Wine
Summer is in full swing and if you’re like us, we’re constantly searching for our next sweet treat! Something bright and refreshing yet still indulgent. This dairy-free treat checks all of those boxes! Key Lime Pops using JOI plant base is the perfect way to cool down without sacrificing an indulgent dessert.
Made with avocado, JOI Almond base, and key limes, this popsicle is a very healthy treat. By using 2 tablespoons of JOI we’ve made this extra thick and creamy. Combine that with bright green avocado and some key lime juice & zest, it tastes exactly like a frozen key lime pie.
For a little extra pizazz we’ve taken crumbled up graham crackers and dusted the pops with that garnish. It enhances the key lime pie flavor and adds great texture. If you can’t get your hands on a popsicle mold you can definitely use this as a no-churn ice cream as well. By blending it with avocado, it remains creamy and doesn’t get ice crystals so it’s a great dairy free ice cream option this Summer!
Enjoy these with some of our other great meals incorporating JOI this Summer!
6 key limes, zested and juiced
1 cup water
2 tablespoons JOI plant base (almond or cashew)
3 tablespoons Agave syrup or sweetener of choice, such as maple syrup
pinch of sea salt
spinach, fresh or frozen, optional
graham cracker crumbs, optional
How To Make It
Combine all ingredients (except graham cracker crumbs) in a blender and blend on high speed for 2 minutes.
If you like, add a handful of fresh or frozen spinach for extra veggies and a brighter green color!
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze the for a minimum of 4 hours. If you would like to make “ice cream” instead of popsicles, pour the mixture into a loaf pan instead of popsicle molds. Freeze at least 2 hours for a soft service ice cream texture, or longer if you like a more traditional ice cream texture.
Top with graham cracker crumbs, made by blitzing a couple of graham cracker sheets in a food processor or high speed blender.
