Coconut Lime Yogurt Popsicles are a fun treat for all ages. A great recipe to involve the kids. They’ll love these creamy coconut lime yogurt popsicles!
Frankly I’m excited.
A few years back, I made a lime and coconut cake? While it’s extremely time consuming, that cake still is one of my most favorite cakes. 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.
To Make These Coconut and Lime Popsicles You Will Need:
- lime zest and juice
- greek coconut yogurt
- powdered sugar
- unsweetened coconut milk
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.
Zest 3 small limes.
Then I squeezed on some limes to get about 1/4 cup of lime juice.
Tossed in 1 cup coconut greek yogurt.
Measure and add in 1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar.
And then stir it up.
Transfer the mixture to a food processor and add in 1 (15 ounce) can of unsweetened coconut milk. Secure the lid on and puree until combined and smooth. It should go for a while so that the zest can break up and not be too noticeable in the end.
Transferred the coconut mixture into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup. This makes it easier to pour into the popsicle molds.
Fill each mold, I’m pretty sure popsicle molds come in a standard size. But it comes out to be about a quarter cup per popsicle.
Insert some wooden sticks.
Pop them into the freezer for about 3 hours. Un-molding them can be difficult, but if you set the popsicle tray into some hot water for a few seconds they should slide right on out.
These quickly became our new favorite treat.
These Coconut Lime Yogurt Popsicles are totally kid tested and approved! SCORE! Ps… blue nail polish is only cute on my 10-year-old’s fingers, not so much on mine. Amen.

I just made champagne punch with coconut water.
These are next. LOVE Them!!!! And the simplicity of it…toss in blender, blend, freeze. No complicated steps. Thank you!
Minus the coconut, my mom used to make these popsicles all the time when i was a kid. The sick part is that I hated them! i wanted those store pop freezies and neon coloured popsicles that all the other kids ate.
is this where i can now confess my undying love? seriously, these look like HEAVEN!
I love you. I have everything to make these TONIGHT! Yes! Thank you, thank you!
These look SO GOOD!!! I love the coconut!
These sound so easy and super refreshing for summer! Looks like I'm buying popsicle molds this weekend!
Ooooh delicious, and with Greek yogurt, too! Perfect, refreshing snack 🙂
These look beautiful! Love the pics of the girls munchin happily. (I bet you could pull off blue nail polish. Just saying.) 😉
Thanks for the tip about setting them in hot water for a few seconds! Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most elusive to me!
these sound fantastic!! sounds like you need a zoku popsicle maker. i'm going to try this recipe in mine soon!
Whoa, I didn't even know they made coconut yogurt. Where did you get your popsicle molds?
Perfect timing – the weather's finally warming up over here! I did a little happy dance when I saw the greek yogurt in your picture because on top of the health benefit, you get a creamy tang which I'm sure sets off the lime and coconut combo. Your recipe looks yummy and the little 'uns are just adorable.
great combination, need something cold and refreshing since it's getting hot in here!
I just made these today, and they are delicious! I made a few modifications, as I didn’t have coconut yogurt or fresh limes, and I am doing the low carb thing. So I used plain Greek yogurt, some shredded coconut, a few squirts of key lime juice, and liquid stevia. So delicious! Thanks for the ideas. 🙂

Hi, I made these the other day, but mine turned out very grainy. Do have any idea why? I tried a spoonful before putting them in the freezer and it tasted great but after taking one out of the freezer I couldn’t even finish it because of the texture. Does the type of coconut milk make a difference? Did this ever happen to you?
I’m not sure why… where they icy or grainy like sand? If they were icy… try placing the mixture in a ice cream maker to start so they can partially freeze before you pour the coconut lime into the molds. I hope this helps 🙂
