It may officially be September but I am not letting Summer go that quickly.
We've had a big obsession with Outshine's Creamy Coconut Popsicles this Summer and I wanted to make them at home to see how easy it would be.
Newsflash: it's really stinkin' easy.
Things you need to make this happen...
- A blender
- 4 ingredients
- Popsicle molds
- A freezer
This recipe makes two batches worth of popsicles so if you have two molds, that's great. If not, save the leftovers to freeze for later.
I use these large popscile molds and these miniature pops by Zoku. Zoku has all kinds of fun popsicle molds, like animals, space ships and dinosaurs that are super fun for kiddos. I found mine at Wegmans and saw a few on Amazon, at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and a few other places.
I think these mini pops would be so great for freezing baby food for little ones who are teething or just starting solids, too! I'm going to try them out with my next little burrito.
These are also super fun to make with kids!
My girls love to help fill up the blender and pour into the molds with me. Then it's distract, distract while they freeze! If you make them after breakfast, they'll be ready in time for a little after-dinner dessert treat.
The toasted coconut is not necessary but definitely an added bonus if you have the time. It makes your house smell ahmazing and I love having the little crunchy bits on my pops.
Anyone have a great toasted coconut candle they know of? Because I need one stat.
Creamy Coconut Popsicles
Makes 10-12 large popsicles
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 13.5oz can full fat coconut cream
1/4 cup toasted shredded coconut
- Toast the 1/4 cup shredded coconut and set aside. You can use sweetened or unsweet here, up to you. I used sweet because #pregnant.
- Blend together the cream, 1 cup shredded coconut, condensed milk and coconut cream until smooth.
- Add toasted coconut to your popsicle molds if you'd like some on the top and pour the mixture in. Add toasted coconut to the bottoms if you'd like.
- If you're using wooden sticks, freeze for about 2 hours and then insert sticks. Freeze popsciles for at least 6 hours before removing from molds.
- To remove from molds, fill a large pot with warm water and dip the popsicles until they start to separate from the mold. The creamy popsciles are much harder to release than icy ones so don't give up! They will come out, I promise. Sprinkle extra toasted coconut and go to town!
