Ingredients:

  • Coconut Milk. Full-fat, canned coconut milk works best.
  • Sugar. Adds flavor and prevents the popsicles from becoming too hard and icy.
  • Lime Zest + Lime Juice. Essential for that fresh, lime flavor!
  • Salt. A small pinch enhances all the flavors.

How to Make Coconut Lime Popsicles:

To make homemade popsicles, the method is simple:

PRO Tips:

  • Don’t skimp on the sugar. Although it seems like a lot of sugar, it’s essential for a soft texture. Otherwise, the popsicles will be too hard and icy with the texture of ice cubes.
  • Use a zester. Scrape off as much lime zest as possible! Adds tons of lime flavor.
  • Use a silicone popsicle mold. Easy to remove and easy to clean, silicone molds are also dish washer safe.

Variations:

Creamy coconut popsicles with lime are a great base for so many flavors! To keep the tropical vibe, consider adding:

  • Mango puree.
  • Pineapple puree.
  • Papaya puree.
  • Passionfruit pulp.

FAQ:

Can I reduce the sugar amount?

Although you can, I don’t recommend it. You need the full amount for a softer Coconut Ice Pop that’s pleasant and enjoyable to eat.

Can I make these without a popsicle mold?

Yes, homemade popsicles can be made without molds. Use a small Dixie paper cup and arrange them on a tray. Transfer to the freezer. After an hour, place popsicle sticks. The liquid should be frozen enough to hold the sticks in place.
