Popsicles in January?  It does sound crazy.  But the only thing crazy about it is how delicious they are.  When you use coconut milk the popsicles are deliciously bite-into-able.  (How do you like that word?!)  You know a normal popsicle takes a while to soften up before you can take that first luscious bite?  Well, not so with these.  The perfect firmness in a pop immediately!

Adorable with chocolate coconut popsicle

Both of my children couldn’t wait to eat them two nights in row.  Including Miss Priss above who refuses to eat dinner most nights.  Well, she gobbled it down knowing that she could eat the yumminess in the freezer.  (Which, she helped prepare, by the way!)

You will need a popsicle mold (like this: Mold).  Frankly, it looks like you can’t get the mold I have anymore; which I love.  There are some nifty new kinds (like this:  Squeezy).   But you can also use paper cups with toothpicks for handles.  You know, ghetto style.

Mix the following ingredients together and put in the microwave for 45 seconds.

1 can full-fat unsweetened coconut milk (shake can well) – 13.5 oz

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 Tbsp honey

pinch of salt

Remove from microwave and add:

1/3 cup Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips

Stir to slightly melt chips.

Pour into molds, freeze and enjoy a piece of heaven!
