Homemade Popsicles

I think Frozen Coconut Bars have always been my favorite.
Today, Owen and I are hanging out while Mike took Caeden to the Tampa Bay Rays game.  So while he is sleeping, I painted the ceiling in my bedroom, and made these Frozen Coconut Popsicles.   I have high hopes for them.

Coconut Pops Reprinted with permission from Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone by Krystina Castella.

Ingredients: Makes six 8-ounce pops or eight 6-ounce pops

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (i used Turbinado sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups coconut milk, homemade or canned; or 3 cups coconut water (see note below)
  • 2 cups fresh (best) or dried shredded coconut

Step 1: In a saucepan, combine the milk and sugar and stir over low heat for 5 minutes to dissolve the sugar; be careful not to scald the milk. Stir in the vanilla extract and let cool to room temperature.

Step 2: In a bowl, combine the coconut milk or coconut water, the shredded coconut, and the milk and vanilla mixture.

Step 3: Pour into the pop molds. Insert the sticks. Freeze for at least 6 hours.

Step 4: Remove from the freezer; let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before removing the pops from the molds. Enjoy this coconut delight.
