Coconut Lime Popsicles

by Kelli on July 26, 2013

These popsicles combine creamy coconut milk and tangy lime for the refreshing summer treat that’s not to be missed.

Coconut Lime Popsicles

You know when you’re looking for something, or have something in mind you want to buy…..say, like a new pair of flat sandals, for example….you start to notice that thing all around you.  A few weeks ago I would have never noticed anyone’s shoe choice.  Now, my eagle eye is drawn to every pair of sandals that cross my path…on the street, on the subway, in my office building.  Everywhere.  My yearning for new sandals and my disgust for my ratty flip flops have been growing by the day.  That’s where I’m at right now.

Coconut Lime Popsicles

Instantly upon entering the shoe department, I realized this was a shopping trip I should have made at the beginning of the summer, heck, even the spring.  Instead of being greeted with a sea of sandals, I came face to face with boots.  Boots!  It’s only the end of July.  We just got past a heatwave in New York….who’s thinking about riding boots right now?!

I may not have a new pair of sandals, but I do have a fresh batch of creamy, tangy Coconut Lime Popislces.  Because, that’s what you do during the summer, make popsicles.  Batch after batch of popsicles, in every flavor you can imagine.

To remove the popsicles, run the molds under hot water for a few seconds.

I do the same thing when I need to purchase something clothes-and-shoe-related…I spy on everyone elses choices and see if they would work for me…I especially do this with purses because I’m soooooo picky about them! Your popsicles look amazing, as always! I’ve been meaning to do a coconut popsicle and the combination with lime sounds so refreshing!

So nice to know I’m not alone :) These popsicles are calling your name!

Boots? Already? We had trouble finding new swimsuits for my daughter’s last week, it’s all back-to-school stuff! These look wonderful…it’s chilly here right now but once it warms up again, I want to make these!

It’s crazy how fast the “seasons” start changing when it comes to shopping!

Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies July 26, 2013 at 7:11 PM

Oh yes, I do the same thing during the summer. It’s all popsicles, all the time around here! These might have to be next on my list. :)

Yay popsicles! It’s been the summer of the popsicle over here :) Can’t get enough!

These are gorgeous. I think coconut milk is my favorite addition to Popsicles. I had the same problem at TJ Maxx the other day I wanted some new sandals for a dress I was wearing to an event… could not find anything. All the fall stuff was out. What the heck!

Thanks so much, Carrie! I’m just a little bit obsessed with coconut milk!

It’s not summer without popsicles :)

I haven’t bought sandals yet this summer either so now I guess I’ll have to wait. Sigh. Thankfully I don’t have to wait for these popsicles! I think I have everything on hand to make them…yum!

Popsicles are better than sandals anyway :) Enjoy!

These make me want to make a spur of the moment purchase for popsicle molds!

Doooo ittttt! It will change your life and be your best purchase of the entire summer!

Hi Kelly!
These look perfect–I’ve been looking for a recipe to test out my new popsicle molds and these will do very nicely, thank you! Doesn’t hurt that my daughter is currently obsessed with coconut and she wants to make them too…happy summer!

Your daughter and I are totally on the same page – I can’t turn down anything with coconut. Hope you’re doing well and having a great summer, Pennie!

The lime and coconut combo is a great one, especially in these cool summer treats!

This is easily my fave summer flavor combo!

Looking forward to making these. What size can of coconut milk is used in this recipe please? Sounds yum! :-)

Reply

Kelli October 21, 2013 at 10:18 AM

Great question, Margarethe! You should use a 14-ounce can of coconut milk. I updated to recipe.

What are your reasons for using light coconut milk and skim milk, rather than regular coconut milk and whole or low fat milk?

I guess I’ve always purchased sweetened shredded coconut… where can I find the unsweetened type?

Reply

Kelli May 12, 2014 at 9:24 AM

I used light coconut milk & skim simply to keep the recipe on the lighter side. You can certainly use regular coconut milk and whole/lowfat milk. Same goes with the unsweetened and sweetened coconut. I usually find unsweetened coconut near the bulk bins in my grocery store and sometimes near nuts & dried fruit.

can i sub homemade almond milk for the skim milk? sounds so yummy!!!

Reply

Kelli June 20, 2014 at 10:12 AM

Thank you, Suzi! You can definitely sub almond milk for the skim! Enjoy!

Sean July 1, 2014 at 7:26 PM

The milk mixture looked like it curdled after I added the lime juice…is that normal? Went ahead and put them in the molds and they are now in the freezer…

Reply

Kelli July 2, 2014 at 2:29 PM

Hmmm, I haven’t had that happen. I’m not sure you’d notice it after their frozen.

Can these be made without the zest? I love the coconut/lime combination; however, any time I eat something with fruit zest in it, it leaves a yucky aftertaste in my mouth that I can’t get rid of for a couple of days! I’ll use almond milk in mine, too!

Reply

Kelli September 8, 2014 at 2:00 PM

The zest it used to add a stronger lime flavor, however you can omit it if you prefer. Enjoy!
