Toasted Coconut Popsicles

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this really awesome post on Bakerita about toasted coconut butter. I’ve been following Rachel’s blog for a long time (you’re missing out if you aren’t!), and she makes the most incredible-looking gluten free, vegan, and paleo things. It never occurred to me that you could make toasted coconut butter, and I was literally reading that whole post with my jaw on the floor. IΒ had to make something with it.

So I did. πŸ™‚

I was excited about toasted coconut butter because I prefer my coconut toasted. Regular shredded coconut? Gross. We’ve talked about my weird texture preferences before, so I won’t get into that again. But I love me some crunchy, toasted coconut. So toasted coconut butter sounded absolutely perfect!

Um, plus it smells like heaven and sunshine and tropical islands. As my dad said, “You need to candle this stuff too.”

So these creamy treatsΒ start with the toasted coconut butter, then you add in some coconut milk, honey for a little sweetness, and a little coconut rum because, boozy popsicles.

Can’t get easier than that right?

While I am a huge fan of all the healthier fruit pops out there, these are more of a dessert pop. What with all the coconut and coconut milk. But these pops are cool and creamy, and the sprinkling of toasted coconut on the bottom is completely necessary! Β They’re the perfect summer afternoon treat!
