Coconut Popsicles

I am dyyyying to be back at the beach. Seriously someone please come and kidnap me and take me to the coast! It probably doesn't help that I am writing this with this song on repeat.....

You may have noticed that my coconut love affair is still going strong. I think this is the real thing y', forever! I mean, we haven't said it to each other yet, but I really feel like coconut may be.... the one.

These popsicles definitely don't hurt that argument. Sweet, creamy, coco-nutty, and uber delicious now that it's a bajillion degrees outside every day. I can eat one of these with my eyes closed and pretend I'm at the beach..... right?

I found this recipe by just doing a google search. I switched it up a little to make it slightly easier on my pocketbook and waistline. Y'all have to try this one- it'd be a great contribution to a 4th of July party!

Coconut Popsicles
adapted from Delish

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut (truthfully, unsweetened would work just fine)
14 oz of Coconut Milk
3/4 cup fat free half & half
1 can (13.5oz) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp coconut extract

Blend all ingredients with a hand mixer or blender. pour into popsicle molds and... this is the hard part, put them in the freezer and WAIT for them to set. About 5 hours. I know!

PS- the girls at my summer camp have decided that instead of playing "house" or "school" they're going to play "restaurant", which I am totally digging.
This was one of the menus....
But the best part was when I was working on a newsletter and one of them came up behind me and put this on the table and said "here's your margarita Ms. Susan". LOL how did she know!?!?
