Coconut Milk Popsicles Variations

You can easily make substitutions to these coconut milk popsicles with kiwi and strawberry. Some variations include:

  • You can use any fruit that you’d like to make tasty homemade popsicles. I like strawberry and kiwi, but you can use just one of those fruits or use your favorite fruit.
  • Use soy milk or almond milk for the coconut milk.
  • Try raw honey, coconut sugar or your favorite sweetener instead of stevia.

How Do You Keep Popsicles From Sticking to the Mold?

I find that silicone molds are best for making tasty homemade popsicles because they are easiest to unmold. However, any mold that you use for these frozen summer treats can be difficult to unmold.

What I usually do is fill a pan or a bowl with warm water. Then I dip the frozen coconut milk popsicles into the warm water for about 20 to 30 seconds. Remove from the water and try to unmold the fruit popsicles. If they don’t unmold easily, dip them in water again and repeat.

You can also remove these strawberry popsicles from the freezer and let them sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes. They will start to thaw, and you can unmold them easily. However, this may cause the tasty popsicles to melt quicker and make a mess.
