How to Make Coconut Popsicles a Healthy Summer Snack

How to make coconut popsicles! Do you love coconut? I sure do, and these creamy treats are such a perfect healthy summer treat, after school snack, or even a delicious dessert.

Between my three kids and the neighbors I supply popsicles daily to 7 children in the summer and after school in the fall. Store bought options became astronomical at that rate so I decided to make my own. I make a batch of 10 popsicles nearly EVERY night in the summer to keep up and we've tried lots of different flavors. I'm excited to share our favorites with you.

Coconut Popsicle Ingredients

Popsicles with coconut milk are SO easy to make. Especially if you've got a great mold.

It's SO easy you'll never buy a store bought popsicle again!

  1. Simply add coconut milk {or cream} to blender
  2. Sweeten to taste, store bought popsicles typically have quite a bit of sugar so experiment a little to see what you prefer
  3. Add shredded coconut if desired, but please omit if you have texture issues. My kids prefer them smooth and creamy with no “pulp”
  4. Adding a little vanilla helps to enhance the “sweetness” of the coconut without overpowering the flavor or adding any calories 😉
  5. Blend until smooth and pour into popsicle mold using a small funnel
  6. Add the silicone “lid” to the top and press a wooden stick into each cavity. Make sure they are straight or you'll end up with wonky coconut milk popsicles!

The mold is so easy to use and clean. The popsicles come out more easily from the flexible silicone too compared with several other hard molds I've used in the past. No rinsing under warm water, just let them sit for a few minutes on the counter and then pull.

Wooden sticks? I know, they aren't very environmentally friendly when we've got SO many mold options with reusable sticks. My issue – children. The sticks ALWAYS get lost and then the whole set is useless. So I moved to wooden sticks and that we try to save, wash, and reuse in the garden later.

Enjoy Your Frosty Treats!

Now that the popsicles are finished here's where the real fun begins. Go ahead and eat them JUST like that. They're delicious. OR….

Go for broke with a decadent Coconut popsicle for dessert by dipping a finished pop into dark chocolate and rolling it into toasted coconut. I've been dreaming about that and will add a photo next time we make them!
