Introduction: Coconut Milk and Fruit Juice Popsicles

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

Step 2: Fill the Popsicle Molds

Use the measuring cup to do all your pouring so you have less mess!

Shake the can of coconut milk and pour it into a measuring cup. Add sugar to taste - I added 2 tablespoons. (Add vanilla right now if you want it!) Mix well.

Pour the sweetened coconut milk into the molds - try to fill them all pretty evenly.

Then rinse out the measuring cup and pour the fruit juice into it. Use the measuring cup to pour the fruit juice slowly into the molds. If you pour too fast or from too high, the two will mix too much. You want a nice white layer at the bottom and a slightly marbled layer of fruit juice at the top. :)

Step 3: Freeze and Eat!

You'll want to freeze for 3-4 hours or until set. Remove them from the molds and store them in a ziploc bag for easier snacking. :D

I hope you guys love these as much as I do - make sure to share photos if you make them!

Those look great! I also love your popsicle-making thingy.. (whats it called?) How do you get the sticks to stay centered so they don't flop over, and heavy so they don't float out?

Do you use the same one as in the link? It's tough to tell from the photo. If so I'm guessing the trick is in the rubber cap that goes over the top?

author

Yup! That's the one I've got. It's a hard plastic top you put over the molds and then you insert the sticks. It keeps them in place really well :D
