Creamy Coconut Chili-Lime Ice Pops

They say opposites attract, but who would have guessed fire and ice paired so perfectly…in a dessert? These gourmet coconut pops chill your tongue while tingling your taste buds with the flavors of fiery chili and tangy, fresh lime. Freezing the coconut cream or milk into mini ice cubes before blending helps create a creamier, thicker consistency. If pops aren’t your thing, skip the stick and serve as a gourmet sorbet instead.

Coconut Milk Ice Pops

Creamy Coconut Chili-Lime Ice Pops

Ingredients

1-½ cups coconut cream or coconut milk, frozen into mini ice cubes*
Juice of 3-4 limes, frozen into mini ice cubes
2 tsp. chili powder (or to taste)
2 Tbsp. vanilla
Pure stevia, to taste

*For best consistency, freeze coconut cream (or a mixture of coconut cream and coconut milk) in mini ice cube trays. Mini cubes blend better than full-sized cubes if you don’t have a high-speed blender.

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor; blend to a soft, creamy consistency.
  2. Fill containers or individual ice pop molds with mixture and freeze for approximately one hour. (Or enjoy immediately, as is, served in a bowl!)
