Skip the store bought popsicles laden with processed ingredients like refined sugar, preservatives and colors, and instead make this delicious low sugar coconut popsicle treats at home!
I’ve been craving ice cream lately but can not eat dairy due to a sensitivity I just found out I have. Bummer! I don’t have an ice cream maker either so I had to shoot for the next best thing… popsicles! I know, I’m sort of late getting on the popsicle bandwagon but lucky for me (and lucky for you) popsicles are good any time of the year!
I made this recipe with coconut milk because it is an excellent substitution for dairy. It was the closest thing I could use to get my vanilla ice cream fix on. I love vanilla ice cream.
I made the popsicles on a whim and kept the ingredients simple — boy did I hit gold! For real, it’s my favorite and now I may just love it more than I love vanilla ice cream!
You know, I love this popsicle recipe so much I went to three different stores to find another mold so I could make more. All three stores were sold out of popsicle molds because they are a “seasonal” item and were on clearance. Thank goodness for trusty Amazon. Any hoo…
I thought long and hard for a name that would really do this popsicle justice because it is so. darn. good. Then The Ultimate Popsicle popped into my head. The taste is seriously out-of-this-world. It only has 5 simple ingredients (all of which you probably have sitting in your kitchen already) but the flavors work so well together that you may as well be having a party in your mouth.
This coconut popsicle is smooth, creamy and rich– almost like a vanilla bean coconut. I added bits of shredded coconut to give a little texture and crunch and gelatin to give it an added boost of goodness.
Sometimes simple is better. You’re welcome!
