Coconut Popsicles

Back home in Hawaii, there’s all kinds of different foods made from Coconut. My Father’s favorite was double crust Coconut Pie, not Coconut Cream mind you, just Coconut, yum! Me, I like Coconut Ice Cream, not a fan of Chocolate (strange for a woman to say that, right?). Here in the middle of the desert, having so many folks of Spanish decent, I would have imagined that I would be able to find that here, NOPE. The closest I can find is something like a popsicle, not bad, but REALLY expensive. So I set out to figure this out and make my own Popsicle.

I searched the WWW and found two recipes:

Coconut Pops

15 oz can of coconut milk

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup ice cubes

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Bring the coconut milk to a slow simmer. Add the sugar and stir occasionally until sugar has melted into the milk. Remove from heat and pour into large measuring cup, and add ice and stir until it is melted and the coconut milk is cooled. Add in the milk, heavy cream and vanilla. Pour the coconut mixture into each mold to reach the top. Place the top on and add the sticks. Freeze for one hour or until solid.

Limber de Coco

1/2 can evaporated milk

1/2 can coconut milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 egg yolk

Cinnamon to taste

1/2 cup of shredded coconut

Mix evaporated milk, coconut milk, sugar, vanilla, egg yolk and cinnamon in a bowl. Add additional sugar and cinnamon to taste.

Pour into popsicle molds.  Freeze until solid.

This is the second recipe, not as good as the first.
