I know you've heard me say it before but it bears repeating ... I am a huge coconut fan. Coconut ice cream, coconut pie, coconut cookies - I love them all. The only thing that I could really never get used to was coconut milk and coconut water. All of the coconut drinks that I've tasted have a strange consistency and texture that I just cant seem to get used to.
What I didn't realize was that I could add sugar to my coconut milk and freeze it to make an incredibly refreshing treat. It no longer has the weird texture of a beverage, now it's a snack. A sink your teeth into, wonderfully coco-nutty snack.
These are as easy to make as it sounds. Sugar, coconut milk and coconut. I like to dress mine up a little and turn them into a truly decadent dessert by dipping them in chocolate too.
Chocolate Dipped Coconut Pops
3 1/2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup toasted coconut, plus more for sprinkling
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
Whisk milk, coconut and sugar together.
Pour into molds.
If you want to add chocolate, melt chocolate chips in a bowl.
Dip frozen pops into chocolate and sprinkle with coconut.
I can't believe that I discovered these AFTER the summer was over. (Maybe that was really a blessing in disguise.) I love these and if you're a coconut fan, I'm pretty sure you will too.
