Coconut Popsicles

These Coconut Popsicles are homemade, refreshing and a perfect summer treat! Only 3 fresh ingredients for this simple to make popsicle recipe!

Whoa nelly it’s hot o’er here.  HOT.  31 degrees hot.  And I love every minute of it after our winter-that-would-never-end.  I welcome the heat with every fibre of my being…and I tell you if I hear one person complain about the heat I will lose my mind.  Seriously.

Besides, hot weather means you have every excuse you need to eat copious amounts of popsicles right? Especially when you can make them yourself.  Making popsicles is the easiest thing the world to do.  Really, most of the time you are just freezing juices or yogurt with fresh fruit…delicious and healthy!

But I do have to admit that homemade popsicles take a bit of getting used to.  The thing about homemade popsicles is that sometimes the texture is not what we’re used to.  Store bought popsicles have all kind of binding agents that make them smooth, and homemade ones do not so the texture is different.  I find homemade popsicles a little icy, but I don’t mind that, especially since I like knowing all the ingredients in them.

Now that it’s summer and the kids are off school, I’m back at filling my freezer with popsicles.  I’ve made pink lemonade popsicles, fudgesicles and now these coconut popsicles.  I’ve been wanting to make coconut popsicles for so long and I’m pretty happy with the way they turned out…I especially love that they only have 3 ingredients.  It doesn’t get much easier than that!  These coconut popsicles are fun too because you can tailor them to your tastebuds…add more sugar if you like, or add some pineapple juice to make a pina colada popsicle.  Have fun with them!

These are so coconut-y, so if you love the flavour of coconut these will certainly satisfy your craving!  A perfect refreshing summer treat.

Creamy Coconut Popsicle Recipe Tips:

  • Adding popsicle sticks:  to add wooden popsicle sticks, freeze your popsicles without the sticks for about 1 hour, then add them in. That way they will stand properly in your popsicle.
  • I prefer to used canned coconut milk for this recipe because I find it more creamy than a lot of coconut milk.  Sometimes I will use coconut milk in tetra packs and it works well too, it’s just not as creamy.
  • If you don’t like the texture of the added shredded coconut, feel free to leave it out.
  • To make a pina colada flavour, add some drained crushed pineapple to the recipe.
