These coconut milk and fruit juice popsicles are some of the easiest and tastiest ones I make! They're super beautiful too. You can really use any fruit juice you want - I especially like guava, mango and pineapple. All of those juices go great with coconut milk.
But be warned: if you're not the biggest fan of coconut these are not for you. The flavor is really intense. :D
Step 1: Ingredients
- one can full fat coconut milk (12 oz )
- one can fruit juice of choice (12 oz )
- sugar to sweeten coconut milk if desired (I used 2 tablespoons)
- teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional, but great when added to the coconut milk!)
It's best if you use a fruit juice with a little body, so look for fruit nectars or fruit juice with pulp. I love guava and mango nectars - they're my absolute favorites.
Don't use low fat coconut milk or coconut water - you need the fat in the coconut milk to keep the popsicles more creamy. Without it, they can turn out a little more icy and crystalize quite a bit.
This recipe fits perfectly into these popsicle molds. I have some at home and at the Instructables test kitchen and use them all the time. They're excellent all purpose popsicle molds! :D
