Coconut Popsicles

Sean, my helper and taste-tester!

The weather has been beautiful here lately. It’s really starting to feel like summer. And what goes better with hot summer days than cool refreshing popsicle? I made a batch of coconut flavor and they turned out great. They are not too sweet and have lots of coconut flake for texture.

I highly recommend investing in some pop molds if you like the idea of making popsicle at home. They are not very expensive and turn out a beautiful pop with handle. I got mine as a birthday gift from my wonderful husband two years ago. We’ve also made smoothie pops which were a big hit.

If you don’t have molds you can always use a disposable plastic cup and a popsicle stick or even a plastic spoon for the handle. Here’s what you’ll need to make about 6 ice pops:

3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 can coconut milk (regular is creamier than light)

1 cup shredded sweetened coconut flake (from the baking aisle)

Directions:

  1. Combine milk, sugar and vanilla in a saucepan and heat on low, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the coconut milk and shredded coconut. Stir to combine.
  3. Fill pop molds and freeze for at least 8 hours.
