Common Questions & Swaps

  • Can I use coconut milk? If it is a high quality coconut milk, put your can in the fridge. Refrigerate overnight and scoop out the right amount of cream and use that. If your coconut milk does not separate, just mix it well and use it in your recipe. Your pops will just not end up as creamy, but they will still be super tasty.
  • Can I swap the strawberries with other berries? Yes. I have not tested this recipe with other berries, but I would suggest that if you do use other berries, skip the roasting step and cook them in a saucepan with maple syrup for a few minutes until you obtain a compote.

  • Can I skip the microwave cake? If you have a vanilla cake on hand or even cookies, feel free to use those instead or simply leave out that component of the recipe.
