Lemon-Coconut Creamsicles | Tutti Dolci

A shower of lemon zest keeps the feel light and bright; coconut milk adds an unbeatable creamy texture. After one bite I’m sure you’ll be as hooked on these pops as I am. For a festive touch, mix in some blueberries and raspberries before freezing for the 4th of July.

Lemon-Coconut Creamsicles

  • Yield: 9 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon zest, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pure coconut extract
  • 1 Tbsp limoncello or vodka

Instructions

  1. Place 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest and sugar in a food processor and pulse for 1 minute; add lemon juice and process until blended. Pour mixture into a medium bowl and whisk in coconut milk, salt, coconut extract, remaining lemon zest, and limoncello until smooth. Chill mixture for 4 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Fill popsicle molds with chilled mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch of space at the top of each mold. Freeze for 90 minutes, then insert popsicle sticks and freeze overnight. To unmold, let popsicles stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Carefully remove from molds and serve.

Notes

The limoncello or vodka prevents the popsicles from freezing too firmly; omit if you wish. Popsicle molds: I use these.

  1. These popsicles are gorgeous, Laura! I hadn’t thought about pairing lemon with coconut before… what a yummy sounding combination! <3

  2. The combination of lemon and coconut totally rocks the house- or the Popsicle (or freezer??) in this case! Love these! I actually have both raspberries and blueberries in my fridge that need to used – I’m thinking these perfect for the 4th! Thanks for sharing! Cheers and warm wishes for a wonderful 4th of July weekendβ™‘

  3. Lemon desserts are my absolute favourties. They remind of afternoons baking with my grams as a kid. Her house always smelt like citrus. πŸ™‚
    Pin. Pin. Pinning these beauties, cant wait to make them in the Summer. Mmmm.

  4. I love lemon + coconut together! and ok, I have to ask because I just made pops and couldn’t get the darn things out of the mold! all you do is let the popsicles stand at room temperature for 5 minutes? You don’t run under warm water? and if you do, how long do you usually do that for? because I tried that too but I over did it.

    1. Hi Alice, sometimes the pops can be stubborn! πŸ˜‰ In that case, I take each mold & dip it in a glass of room temperature water for about 30 seconds. That usually does the trick. Happy 4th!
