The other day we were hanging out at our friend's new house when she pulled out...coconut popsicles! I'll admit to not loving popsicles in general - I mean, why have frozen sugar water when I could eat ice cream? But these were SO GOOD. The coconut gave them a little more heft, and they were still cool, refreshing & portable.
So. I decided to try making a batch at home, and you would not believe how simple they are to make.
1 can of coconut milk (Goya is a good go-to brand for canned goods & it's easy to find)
1/2 cup of half and half (if you're going for dairy-free, you could just omit, but I find it smoothes out the somewhat chunky coconut milk)
1/4 cup of sugar
Pour all ingredients into a small pot & heat over a medium low flame until the sugar has dissolved completely. Cool, pour into popsicle molds and pop in the freezer for a few hours.
June and I love them! The boys do not, and my theory is that you either love the flavor of coconut or you highly dislike it. I could eat five of these babies a day :)
And so could she.
