    I love my frozen popsicals but have never, ever simmered the juices. What is the reasoning behind the simmering? I would have thought this would destroy many of the vitamins.

      Lorel, It allows the flavors to meld, and remember it’s just a simmer, not a boil.

    I made the strawberry pops and followed the recipe exactly. Why are your pops very light pink and mine are red like strawberries? They taste delicious though!

      Denise, It's the lighting when the photo was taken. Ours were also red and yummy! 🙂

    My chocolate mix was really, really thick. Is that normal? I just put them in the freezer, so I guess I will see how they taste! Just wondered if it was supposed to be more liquid?

      Amy, You can add more liquid but it's not necessary. Keep us posted.

    Do you have the nutritional information for these or did I miss it? I'm especially interested in the Creamy Cocoa Fudgesicles.

    Can you use cow milk for Cocoa Fudgesicles or is coconut a must? If it's because of the flavor, could I just add some coconut flakes or something like that?

      Jel, Yes, you can substitute cow's milk. Coconut milk is condensed and thicker so the fudgesicles may be a bit less creamy with the cow's milk.

    I'm a bit confused be the listing of both strawberries and strawberry puree in the ingredients. Is this a purchased puree; you have no recipe for it. Or do you mean that we should puree the 3 cups of berries, in which case it should not be listed as another ingredient, but as a direction,

      Jean, Use the 3 cups strawberries to make the puree. This has been corrected. Thank you!
