Cool and refreshing treat for summertime. Yield depends on size of popsicle holders. Mine are the kind with a plastic handle and stick and hold about 3 ounces. You can also use 3-oz paper bathroom cups and popsicle sticks. From "A Taste of Thai" products. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup sugar but I found that too sweet. You can use Lite coconut milk and Splenda, also.
- 1 (13 1/2 ounce) can coconut milk
- 1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained (or 2 of the smaller cans)
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- Add coconut milk, oranges, and sugar to blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour mixture into ice pop holders and insert popsicle sticks, or plastic tops.
- Freeze 5 hours or overnight.
For my children and for PRMR we enjoyed these highly delicious pops very much. This gives a change from the usual ones and WE LOVE COCONUT!
Thanks a lot for sharing this recipe!
I loved the blend of flavours in this recipe. Cool, refreshing, fruity, healthy but not dull... perfect! I found 1/3 cup sugar to be just right. Thanks for the lovely summer treat!
Slurp, slurp...Let me interpret: Grandbaby says, definitely tropical...cold, creamy smooth, citrusy overtones with a hint of coconut. Not having it on a stick didn't take away from the flavor what-so-ever! My Gran did good! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag '09
