While some of our other popsicles and smoothie pops are healthy and totally edible for breakfast (like these peaches and cream popsicle or this triple berry popsicle) this one is definitly a dessert popsicle. Although, you cannot deny it has some really good ingredients.

How to make Coconut Lime Cream Popsicles

The Limes

I love to juice my own limes- I really feel they have so much more flavor fresh than store bought bottled. Juicing your own is so easy!

TiP: whenever you have an extra acidic/tart citrus and you want to enhance the flavor without making it more tart use the peel! zest some of the citrus and it will add a burst of flavor. You’ll want to do that for this recipe!

The cream of coconut

This is the sweetness to contrast the lime tartness, and it is delicious. You literally could eat it by the spoonful!

Grab it in the wine and spirit isle by the rose grenadine and soda water!

The cream

I love to use greek yogurt in my popsicles because of the nutritional benefits. The calcium and probiotics are great for my kids!

What can I substitute if I’m dairy free? 

You can totally substitute the vanilla greek yogurt for coconut milk or coconut cream.

NOW! throw everything in the blender

After its blended pour it in the mold. I like to again add little more zest to the popsicle to make it colorful and more flavorful!

Pour the creamy liquid into the molds slowly.

Will it expand? yes, it’ll expand only a few centimeters so you can fill them nearly to the top :)

Getting that popsicle stick straight…Here are a couple of tips-

  1. Let the popsicle freeze for 30-60 minutes, the liquid will firm up and then you can add the stick.
  2. Purchase a mold with a lid included- mine came with a lid with slots so I can slip the sticks in and they stay until frozen.
  3. Add fresh fruit. Adding the fruit holds up the stick :)

Let them freeze for a few hours more hours until completely frozen. When you’re ready to pull them out let them defrost for a few minutes or run the outside of the popsicle mold under hot water for a couple of seconds to help with removal.
