Coconut Cream Popsicles

Coconut Cream Popsicles

1 14oz can of lite coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
6oz of whole milk

or

instead of milk and sugar use my favorite, sweetened condensed milk.

Whisk ingredients together, pour into molds, & freeze.

The blue strip there is just a bit of blue food color for fun.

1. I tried these with both full fat and low fat coconut milk. Both worked just fine, I preferred the lite version.

2. The coconut flavor was subtle. For more coconut flavor maybe a smidgen of coconut extract.

3. Mini sized baking cups are a dixie cup popsicle's best friend. Cut a small slit in the center, poke the stick through, then into your dixie cup. While in the freezer they serve as a cover and stick stabilizer. When you remove the dixie cup, once your popsicle has frozen, it becomes a drip catcher.

4. Have fun!

I have created an entire page to popsicles! I'll be adding my popsicles as I feature them. I also want to see your popsicles. Link up your greatest frozen treats. Click on the cool button below. Then try to say popsicle 5 times in a row really fast.





I will be partying with my popsicles HERE and...

I love how cute they look, the detail on the stick and little cupcake liner underneath, it's the little things...

Andrea said...

Mmm, I love coconut. I'd love to make these at home rather than buying them. Thanks for sharing! As I was looking at your pics I thought, hey I could save and use my kids little plastic yogurt cups to do this too. You think that would work?

Condo Blues said...

Thank you for this recipe! I have an carton of open coconut milk I need to use. This will be the perfect way to break in our new Popsicle molds!

Hi- I found you through Skip to my Lou's Linky. I used to live near Mexico, and my favorite paleta flavor was always Coconut! I might have to try to make them myself now that I live in South Africa! Hope you check out my blog at http://withoutcomplexitites.blogspot.com

Bev said...

oh those look yummy. I think I will try with the sweetened condensed milk because I love getting sno cones in the summer with sweetened condensed milk on them. Oh they are so good.

Thank you so much for this - I have a tin of cocnout milk lurking in my cupboard that I've been trying think of a use for and I know my young nephews will enjoy a posicle when they next pop round

Stephanie Lynn @Under the Table and Dreaming said...

Jo - these look fabulous! Love the cream and blue colors. Sound delicious too! Thanks so much for linking to the Sunday Showcase Party. I am a little behind commenting - but I have featured this last week. Hope you are having a wonderful week ~ Stephanie Lynn

I made these today with the sweetened milk like you suggested and they were terrific! I'm going to try and replace the sweetened condensed milk with vanilla soy milk and see how it goes. Maybe they'll be okay?

Anyway, I loved these!
Thanks for the idea :)
You have a wonderful and well organized blog.

you could use food coloring and the striping to make red white and blue ones!

I already tried making them and they're amazing!

Pearl said...

I just made a batch and I'm eating one as I type this. I can attest to their deliciousness! Creamy and sweet (I used sugar and milk.) Plus I think they would be under 100 calories each...

SJ @ Homemaker On A Dime said...
