Frankly I’m excited. Excited that these popsicles turned out WAY better than I expected and that I found yet another way I can consume one of my favorite flavor combos; Zee lime and zee coconut.
Remember a few years back when I made that little lime and coconut cake? While it’s extremely time consuming that cake still is one of my most favorite cakes in the world… but then again ask me if there’s a cake that I don’t like, I’m not sure I could answer that. Because cakes rule. And so do popsicles.
The best thing that happened to me in March besides the temp reaching the mid eighties was discovering this coconut yogurt. That yogurt sparked all kinds of creativity and these popsicles were the end result.
In my giant-o food processor I added the unsweetened coconut milk with the lime-y yogurt concoction, put the lid on and let it spin. It should go for a while so that the zest can break up and not be too noticeable in the end.
These quickly are becoming my new favorite treat. And I have no bones about it. I may have done a little happy dance mid-devouring… hey no one saw me except maybe our dog, and he doesn’t really say much so I’m sure it’s safe to say my secret is safe between you and me. Cool?
