Orange Coconut Milk Popsicles (DF, V)
I absolutely love these orange coconut milk popsicles. They are so refreshing, so delicious and SOOO easy to make! Just 3 ingredients needed!
I love making my own popsicles. The possibilities are endless! My favorite homemade popsicle from last year was my watermelon mint popsicles. It’s only May and I already know these orange coconut milk pops are going to be my favorite for this summer. So refreshing, creamy and did I mention– just 3 ingredients?? I love that.
Ingredients for orange coconut milk popsicles
- Canned coconut milk – just regular canned coconut milk is what you want. Not coconut cream and preferably not the reduced fat kind
- Orange juice
- Maple syrup
And that is all you need to make a delicious orange coconut milk popsicle. If you are feeling frisky a little fresh grated ginger is very nice in these but definitely not required!
To make these popsicles, you will need a mixing bowl, whisk and a popsicle mold. This is the one I use!
A little tip with the coconut milk! The coconut cream tends to separate and start to solidify in the can leaving the thinner, watery coconut milk on the bottom. To avoid this, I place the cans of coconut milk in a bowl and run hot water from the kitchen sink over the cans for a few minutes. This will ensure smooth coconut milk.
After you’ve done that, add the coconut milk and whisk to make sure its totally smooth. Then add the orange juice and maple syrup. Whisk and pour into the popsicle mold.
How to keep popsicle sticks from getting crooked
Since the popsicle mixture is thin, the sticks will start to float and become crooked. To combat this, soak the popsicle sticks in water an hour before you plan to make them. After you’ve filled the molds and placed them in the freezer, set a time for about 30 minutes. Then go in and straighten out all of the popsicle sticks. By this time, the popsicle mixture should be starting to get thicker and the sticks will be “water logged” and they should stay put.
How long do homemade popsicles need to freeze?
A general rule of thumb is 6 hours and that is what I recommend for these. If you are really just dying for your orange coconut milk popsicle like right now, you could probably sneak one out at the 4 hour mark.
How to remove the popsicles from the mold
After removing the lid and and your chosen popsicle from the tray, run the mold under lukewarm water and gently tug on the popsicle stick until it slides out. It’s better to just use lukewarm water as opposed to hot water. Hot water will start to melt the end of your popsicle.
