Chai Spiced Coconut Fig Posicles

Chai Spiced Coconut Fig Popsicles {gluten-free and vegan}
MAKES 8 (3-OUNCE) POPS

 

  • 2 cups organic full-fat coconut milk

  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon organic natural cane sugar*

  • 3 bags strong organic black tea or 2 tablespoons loose leaf tea, in an infuser

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 2 star anise pods

  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger, sliced

  • 1/2 teaspoon peppercorns

  • 5 whole cloves

  • 1 teaspoon cardamom pods

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 6 figs, thinly sliced

  • pinch of salt

Heat the coconut milk to a boil, then add the sugar, tea bags (or loose tea), and all the spices you are using. Do not add the vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer and let it simmer for about 2 minutes. Take off of the heat, allow the tea to steep for about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags (or the tea infuser) and allow the spices to continue to infuse for at least another 15 minutes longer, or up to 30 minutes, depending on how strong you want the chai flavor. Once the desired flavor is reached, strain out the the spices. Add the vanilla extract and additional sugar, if necessary. Mix well.

Place the mixture in the refrigerator and allow to cool completely. Place fig slices into the popsicle molds and press against the sides.  Pour the coconut chai mixture into the molds, be careful not to overfill, add the popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 2 hours.

 

 

NOTES:

Use whatever tea you’d like, make the flavor your own

Feel free to experiment with other sweeteners, I have found that sugar makes for the creamiest and least icy popsicles, honey or maple syrup would be great, but will yield a slightly icier popsicles

If you don’t have figs, feel free to leave them out, these are quite delicious just as
