Total Time 4 hours 15 minutes
Calories 192 kcal per serving

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups coconut chunks unsweetened, I used Trader Joe’s brand frozen “Just Coconut Chunks”, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons honey you can choose to omit, or use a sugar-free sweetener
  • 4 limes zested and juiced
  • 1 Thinster brand coconut cookie per popsicle you can omit them, or use any graham cracker/vanilla wafer type small cookie

Instructions

  1. Blend thawed coconut chunks for a few minutes in a food processor until they are at a fine crumbly state.

  2. Add lime juice, zest, and honey, and pulse blend for a few seconds at a time, scraping down the sides of the food processor if necessary.

  3. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and add yogurt. Fold mixture until well combined.

  4. Crumble 1 cookie per mold. Insert popsicle base/handle (if included, or insert popsicle sticks. The mixture is thick enough so they should stay placed without partially freezing first).

  5. Freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.

Recipe Notes

When releasing the popsicles from mold, you may have to run them under warm water for a few seconds on each side to loosen them from the mold.
