Add to the coconut milk some berries and you have a perfect snack for kids, filled with healthy fats and vitamins and minerals. I never feel bad letting my kids have three in a row when we are serving these up!  Ingredients: 1 can coconut milk or coconut cream where to find 1 cup berries of your choice 1 frozen banana (this adds texture and sweetness) Directions: In a high-powered blender, blend all ingredients until smooth Pour into popsicle molds you can find some great molds here Freeze for a few hours Enjoy!
