Last week over on our Instagram
, we shared a handful of creative ways to use jams. Jam is wonderful as a simple, staple breakfast component slathered across a hunk of hearty toast. But if you're like us, you might have 3 or 4 (or, okay, 5) open jars of jam in your refrigerator because you just MUST try them all!
This week we're sharing just the recipe to use up that extra jam in a summertime treat. Sweet and creamy, they're perfect to pack in a cooler for a hot day at the pool or as a light dessert option. Below we're sharing the vegan version of Quick & Easy Jam Popsicles, but do note that you could easily substitute dairy milk and yogurt if you prefer.
These Quick & Easy Vegan Jam Popsicles come together in 10 minutes or less with only 3 ingredients. The hardest part of the recipe is exercising patience while they freeze! They'll need to spend anywhere from 3-5 hours in the freezer (depending on the size of your pop and the temperature of your freezer). Each batch yields approximately five 3 oz. pops. While leftovers are unlikely -- especially with little ones running around, you could double or triple the recipe to make a bigger batch. Store extras in a freezer bag for up to 3 weeks.
This week, we made Blueberry Basil, Strawberry with Lemon, and Gingered Pear Vegan Jam Popsicles. We think Red Raspberry, Blackberry, or Peach would be super delicious too!
Wondering how to use up extra jam? Read on for the recipe.
Quick & Easy Vegan Jam Popsicles
Active time: 10 minutes Freeze Time: 3-5 hours Yields: Five 3 oz. Popsicles
1/2 c. Jam (we used our Blueberry Basil, Gingered Pear, and Strawberry with Lemon)
1/2 c. Unsweetend Coconut Milk Yogurt
1/4 c. Full Fat Canned Coconut Milk
Popsicle Sticks, Toothpick Forks, or sturdy Paper Straws
3 oz. Dixie Cups or Popsicle Molds
*the pops do take on a noticeable coconut flavor from the coconut milk & yogurt. Substitute full fat oat milk and oat milk yogurt if you're not a coconut fan!
1. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine together jam, yogurt, and coconut milk.
2. Evenly distribute mixture into Dixie cups, leaving a little bit of space below the rim for the pops to expand as they freeze.
3. Insert popsicle sticks into the center. They should stand up on their own.
4. Place cups on a small baking sheet and set in the freezer for 3-5 hours. Our 3 oz. pops were frozen in 3 hours, but it totally depends on your freezer and how packed it is.
5. Remove from freezer and remove from Dixie cups. Enjoy!
6. Store any leftovers in a sealed freezer bag for up to 3 weeks.
