Coconut Popsicles

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.

So now that it’s summer and the kids are off school, I’m back at filling my freezer with popsicles.  I’ve made fruit juice popsicles, pink lemonade popsicles, fudgesicles and now I’ve made 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!

    We love coconut around here, and these look and sound delish! I think I’ll try making them today as we’re going through tonnes of cool drinks and frozen treats with this heat wave. But, I’m with you- bring it on!

    I bet this would be great with honey too. I read 31 degrees…and think freezing. Gotta love our differences, eh?

    Miss you. I’ve been on sabbatical. 🙂

    Just to clarify, we’re talking about coconut milk that comes from a can yes?
