So I did. 🙂
Um, plus it smells like heaven and sunshine and tropical islands. As my dad said, “You need to candle this stuff too.”
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! They’re the perfect summer afternoon treat!
- 1 1/2 cups coconut/toasted coconut for toasted coconut butter
- 13.5 oz can of coconut milk
- 2 tbsp honey
- 3 tbsp coconut rum (or sub in coconut water or more coconut milk)
- 1/3 cup toasted coconut for garnish
- Make toasted coconut butter according to these instructions.
- In a blender, combine toasted coconut butter, coconut milk, honey, and coconut rum. Blend until completely combined and smooth.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 30 minutes. Then insert popsicle sticks and sprinkle the popsicles with toasted coconut.
- Freeze for 3-4 more hours, or overnight if possible.
- Dip molds in hot water for 5-10 seconds to remove popsicles.

I’m going to see how many pops I can make this summer! ♥
I LOVE toasted coconut all thanks to you!! Regular shredded, I agree, Gross! These popsicles look and sound divine Beth! Pinned 🙂
Glad I could spread the toasted coconut love! 🙂 Thanks, Chelsea!

Oh the smell of toasted coconut. Every home should smell like that. I give these popsicles an A+++. Just as Beth says, they are perfect for an afternoon treat.
It is a pretty good smell. I’d be okay with it if the house smelled like that all the time. 🙂 Glad you liked them!

Rachel @ Bakerita says
Woo so glad you tried the toasted coconut butter!! Isn’t it heavenly?! Now I’m going to have to try these popsicles…good thing I still have some coconut butter left 🙂 pinned! And thanks for the shout out!
Sososo glad you posted that recipe! Toasted coconut butter on everything! 🙂 Really, can’t believe I didn’t know it was a thing before then. Thanks for pinning, Rachel!
Toasted coconut and a little booze? Sign me up! I am loving all these popsicle recipes I’ve been seeing lately – now I just need to find time to try them all out!
Haha, I wish I had enough time to try them all too! Or maybe I just need more pop molds and a bigger freezer. Hmmm. 😉 Thanks, Ashley!
Toasted coconut & rum?! I’m all about these and I think they should be mandatory on Monday!
Oh yes, I like that idea. Mondays would be so much better if there were mandatory popsicles. 🙂
Ashley | Spoonful of Flavor says
Toasted coconut butter does sound pretty incredible! These popsicles were calling my name as soon as I saw toasted coconut. What a great way to cool down during these hot summer days!
That is exactly how I felt when I first saw the toasted coconut butter, Ashley! It was calling my name. 🙂
Matt Robinson says
These are incredible, Beth! I think I would eat them from the bottom up somehow:)
Haha, that is a wonderful idea, Matt! I thought about dipping them in toasted coconut at first, so now I’m thinking I need to revisit that idea. 😉
Mary Frances says
Toasted coconut butter? I die. Toasted coconut popsicles? I feel like *melt* would fit the theme better. Don’t candle this stuff or I will spend all day inhaling the scent. Coconut forever! And cold creamy desserts are a must have right now. Pinning!
You need to try toasted coconut butter, Mary Frances! Thanks for pinning. 🙂
Cate @ Chez CateyLou says
These look so creamy and refreshing! I’ve never heard of toasted coconut butter, but it sounds incredible! Toasted coconut is so much better than regular – it has so much flavor!
Thanks, Cate! And I totally agree. Toasted coconut > coconut. 🙂
Nancy @ gottagetbaked says
Ermagawd, Beth, these popsicles are blowing my mind. They look incredible and I’m in LOVE with the coconut flavour and the flakes of toasted coconut on the bottom. I’ve been tearing around town recently looking for popsicle molds but I think I’m gonna use any ol’ containers so that I can make these asap. They look delicious!
Thanks so much, Nancy! I’ve also been looking for some better popsicle molds, but I’ve only been able to find the good ones online. But I need more pops now! 🙂
Matt @ Runner Savvy says
Oh I have to try this!
Yes, you do! 🙂
I love coconut butter but I’ve never tried it with toasted coconut. I bet it brings out the flavour so much more and that’s such a great idea to add it to these popsicles. I love getting ideas from other bloggers too 🙂
I need to try regular coconut butter now! The toasted stuff is pretty good though. And yes, I get so much inspiration from other bloggers! 🙂
Toasted coconut butter sounds like a must try! I love a dessert popsicle and this one sounds like it would satisfy any sweet cravings. The rum is a bonus 🙂
Jess @ On Sugar Mountain says
Mmmmm toasted coconut is my favorite and I bet the texture is delightful in these popsicles! 😀 I want to eat these all summer longgggg.
these look delicious!
These are incredible!! I am a huge fan of toasted coconut. I keep toasted flakes in a ziplock bag all the time just in case I need to throw them into something or for snacking lol! The rum in these make them even more perfect for dessert 🙂
Nora (A Clean Bake) says
Great recipe, Beth and GORGEOUS pictures!
Only one word to say about these popsicles: Perfection!
Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction says
Toasted coconut is the best! Love that you added it to popsicles!
Jennie @themessybakerblog says
Toasted coconut is the best smell in the whole wide world. I’ll take my pops with rum, please! These look amazing. I’ll for sure be toasting up some coconut for buttah.
Elizabeth @ SugarHero.com says
This is genius! I’m so glad that you posted about it–I am going to be making toasted coconut butter all.the.time now! And the popsicles? Amazing!
