Who doesn’t love popsicles on a warm summer day…oh wait, it’s not summer anymore, but the hot days aren’t quite behind us yet! This is a super simple recipe that can be prepared in 5 minutes, so you can have popsicles at the ready in your freezer!

This recipe utilizes cashews, which are full of healthy fats and add a creamy and naturally sweet taste to the popsicle while allowing it to be vegan, gluten free, and soy free! We utilized figs because they are in the peak of their season right now, making them absolutely delicious and quite abundant!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cups water
  • 4 figs
