Made with full fat coconut milk, cool mint gives these dairy-free pops a refreshing feel. Flecked with shards of semisweet chocolate (use a serrated knife to get the best texture) for plenty of chocolate in each bite, there’s no better way to get your mint-chocolate fix.

Mint Chocolate Popsicles

Save Recipe


Cool and creamy mint chocolate popsicles flecked with dark chocolate and flavored with fresh mint leaves are the perfect frozen treat. Recipe yields 10 popsicles.


  • 2 2/3 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • peppermint extract (optional, and to taste)
  • food coloring (optional)
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped


  1. Combine coconut milk and fresh mint leaves in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat for 5 minutes, until bubbles appear around the edge of the pan. Remove from heat and let steep 20 minutes. Strain infused coconut milk through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing on the mint with the back of a spoon. Whisk in sugar, salt, peppermint extract, and food color (2 drops green, 1 drop blue) until smooth. Let mixture cool to room temperature, then cover and chill for 6 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Stir chopped chocolate into mixture and fill popsicle molds, leaving a 1/2-inch of space at the top of each mold. Freeze for about an hour, then insert popsicle sticks and freeze overnight. To unmold, let popsicles stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Carefully remove from molds and serve.


I added a few drops of peppermint extract to enhance the mint flavor; taste mixture before adding extract – you may not need it depending on the strength of your mint leaves.

  1. OMG these are deeelicious!!! I substituted honey for the sugar and they are soo good. If you haven’t made them yet, run, go! Make them NOW. These are so refreshing!! I’ve been fibbing to hubby saying they’re all gone but then eating them when he’s at work. hahaha That’s how good these are! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!! One of my new favorites!!

  2. Hi! Your recipe looks amazing! I’d like to know if you’ve had issues with the chocolate shavings suspending throughout the Popsicle or does it all sink to the bottom, like mine did? It may have been that my shavings were to large? Thanks for your input! 🙂

    1. Hi Sophia! Now that you mention it, sometimes the savings do sink to the bottom (I think that happens if the chocolate isn’t quite fine enough). Usually I take a skewer and swirl the mixture around in each mold and that helps distribute the chocolate more evenly…I’ll make a note of that in the recipe :).

  3. Would I be able to make these with regular milk? I have been unable to find the coconut milk, and I was wondering if it was in the recipe purely for the sake of the popsicles being dairy-free or if they need to be made with the full fat coconut milk… either way they sound delicious and I can’t wait to make them.

    1. Hi Emma, I use coconut milk to make the pops dairy free. I’d substitute half-and-half if you want to try a dairy version. Hope you love them! 🙂

  4. I was thrilled to find this recipe! Thank you for sharing! What brand of coconut milk do you use? My mix separated in the six hours in the fridge. The cream of the coconut rose to the top and I’m scared the pops will be layered 🙁

    1. Hi Carolina, I’ve used multiple brands of coconut milk. Don’t worry about the separation (sometimes that does happen in the chilling process). Just whisk the mixture again before pouring in the molds and your pops should be fine :).

  5. Do you have a favorite popsicle mold? Which one did you use for these amazing looking mint chocolate pops? Thanks!

    1. Hi Holly, I use popsicle molds I found on Amazon. They are easy to use and clean, and they store well in the freezer. Hope that helps! 🙂

  6. Woah, this is super cool looking! I love mint chocolate – one of my favorite ice cream flavors so this is perfect for popsicles 🙂
