Lime Coconut Fruit Pops

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 4 hours

Yield: 6 pops


  • 2 limes
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 orange
  • 4 tablespoons heavy coconut cream
  • 4 ounces milk
  • 4 tablespoons organic sugar
Cooking directions
  1. Juice citrus.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in blender. Add fruit juice. Process until blended, about 30 seconds.
  3. Pour ingredients into molds about 2/3 full. Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap and place form in freezer, about 1 hour. When the pops are slushy, slash small holes in covering and insert sticks. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
  4. Remove from freezer. Run molds under warm water for a few seconds. Thaw 2-3 minutes. Gently tug on sticks to remove pops from mold and serve.
