Malabi is definitely one of my favorite summer desserts; cold, light and always a crowd pleaser. It can be made vegan very easily, and I really do not know anyone who refuses cold malabi with rose water syrup, coconut and pistachios. It’s so hot outside this summer, so I decided to make a frozen version for my favorite dessert and that’s how these malabi popsicles were thought of!
This malabi popsicle is easily made with no ice cream machine – just mix a few ingredients in a bowl, freeze and you have a delicious summer treat. These popsicles combine coconut, raspberry, honey and rose water in a luscious red and white marble look, just like malabi. Plus, it is very easy to prepare!
I made it in two different versions – regular and vegan; both of them are simply excellent. The vegan version uses coconut cream which gives the popsicles a rich and creamy texture; The dairy version is made with natural yogurt that makes it lighter and delicious. In both cases, these malabi popsicles are simply perfect.
In order to make these popsicles I used this popsicle pan, which is definitely one of the most common props I use in my kitchen this summer 🙂
For the popsicles:
- 500 ml. coconut cream or natural yogurt
- 180 grams of honey
- 20 grams of rose water not rose water extract!
For the raspberry mixture:
- 75 grams smooth raspberry puree
In a bowl, mix coconut cream (or yogurt), honey and rose water to a uniform mixture.
Divide the mixture into 2 bowls and add raspberry puree to one of them. Stir well into a uniform mixture.
Pour the two mixtures into the popsicle mold to create marble look.
Close the pan and insert popsicle sticks.
Freeze for at least 4-5 hours or until the popsicles are completely frozen.
Remove from the pan and serve.
- The popsicles are kept in a closed container in the freezer for up to a month.
- Instead of raspberries you can use any other berry that you like, the taste will of course change accordingly.
- If you use rose water extract, you will need a significantly smaller amount. In general, it is best to taste and decide if enough or more needs to be added.
- Instead of honey you can use maple or date syrup in the same amount. The taste will change accordingly.
