Coconut Lime Popsicles

Lime popsicles are 100 percent a weakness for me. Add coconut and I’m a goner! You’ll be eating these coconut lime popsicles allll summer long.

While some of our other popsicles and smoothie pops are healthy and totally edible for breakfast (like these protein popsiclespeaches 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.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED FOR LIME POPSICLES

1. LIMES (juice + zest)

Do you need to use REAL limes? yes!  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!

CREAM OF COCONUT

This is the sweetness to contrast the lime tartness, and it is delicious. You literally could eat it by the spoonful! Why use this instead of coconut milk? This adds the sweet, coconut milk will not be enough balance.

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

THE CREAMY

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.

HOW TO MAKE COCONUT LIME POPSICLES

NOW! throw everything in the blender

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

Pour the creamy liquid into the molds slowly.

WILL THE LIQUID EXPAND

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

MY POPSICLE MOLD IS DIFFERENT HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH SMOOTHIE TO MAKE?

Because we don’t all have the same popsicle mold (you can get mine from amazon here) it can be tricky to know how much to make in advance. Before making the smoothie pour water into your popsicle molds 1 cup at a time. My molds hold about 4 cups of liquid.

ALSO If  adding fresh fruit then you don’t need to make as much. But now I have a good idea on how much to make. This peaches and cream smoothie popsicle recipe makes 4 cups. If you have extra serve to your kids as a drink!

HOW TO GET THE POPSICLE STICK STRAIGHT!

  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 :)

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO FREEZE LIME POPSICLES?

Popsicles take about 4-8 hours to completely freeze.

HOW LONG DO POPSICLES LAST IN THE FREEZER?

To help your popsicles last longer I highly recommend removing from the popsicle mold after they are freezing and storing in an air tight container. Wrapping them plastic wrap will before placing in an air tight bag/container will also help keep their freshness
