These spiced berry and coconut popsicles are perfect for any hot summer day, providing just a little spiciness with a ton of sweet, fruity flavor. The battle between hot and cold seriously wakens the tastebuds. They are totally refreshing and fun to eat.

Best of all with this family-pleasing treat, it’s a simple recipe and it takes little time at all to make with minimum freezing time. So if the ingredients are around, you can be enjoying these popsicles the same day they come to mind.

Cayenne pepper is the heat source here, and we only use a small amount. You can increase that for a little more spiciness. Of course, you can really ramp up the heat and add some crushed fresh chili pepper to the berry mixture. A fresh habanero would certainly do the job for those that like things extra-hot. It has a nice sweetness that complements the berries.

These spiced berry and coconut popsicles can also be enjoyed without the addition of sugar (just omit it from the ingredients.) Or, if you are looking for a more decadent option, try coating them with melted chocolate after freezing.

  • Carefully stick the popsicle sticks into the center of each cup.

Feel free to increase the cayenne to amp up the spiciness. Or try a fresh hot pepper (diced and added with the mixed berries). Habanero peppers (with their extra-hot spiciness and fruity sweetness) work well with the berries and coconut.
