How to make coconut popsicles:
Start the coconut popsicle recipe by cleaning the coconut . You will use only the pulp, so cut it into small pieces to facilitate the preparation. You can substitute dry grated coconut for the coconut in the shell. Place the coconut chunks in the blender with a little of the coconut water. If you use the coconut with the shell, take advantage of the water that it already brings.
If, on the contrary, you bought the coconut already chopped, buy the natural coconut water at the supermarket. When the coconut is more or less ground, add the Greek yogurt, the vanilla essence and the rest of the coconut water . Blend very well until you get a lighter texture. Tip: you can substitute Greek yogurt for plain unsweetened yogurt if you prefer healthier coconut popsicles.
Once blended, pour the cream into the molds.
Plastic cups, place the wooden sticks and, optionally, a little grated coconut at the end for a more beautiful presentation. Then reserve the popsicles in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight. After the freezing time and once they are solid, unmold the coconut popsicles and enjoy a refreshing dessert, let’s eat!

Coconut popsicles and other ingredients
The coconut flavor alone is delicious and has a slightly sweet flavor, that is why we do not use sweeteners for this recipe, but you can add them to make them to your liking with the sweetness you prefer.
Likewise, you can make the popsicles more creamy using heavy cream or whipping cream , if you use the latter I advise you to whisk it for a few minutes to aerate it and leave it with an extra softness and creaminess.
You can make your own homemade heavy cream with this recipe.With the aforementioned amounts you will get 8 to 10 popsicles in 200 ml cups, but everything will depend on the size of the glass you choose or if you have a popsicle mold. On the other hand, you can add other ingredients to combine the coconut with other flavors, such as the following:
- cocoa powder
- crushed fruits (natural or frozen)
