Put de lime in de coconut and you’ll feel better.

Ok, now that I have successfully put the coconut song in your head for the rest of the day, can we talk about popsicles?  Growing up, I was the popsicle king.  And my sister wasn’t far behind.  We could go through boxes of popsicles.  Of course, this is when we were younger, and we were always a sticky mess once we were done…but man, were those popsicles awesome!

These tropical Coconut Lime Popsicles are a fun and refreshing snack on a hot summer afternoon!My all-time favorite popsicle flavor is grape.  Not even a debate there.  I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always had a weakness for grape-flavored anything.  Oh, but I just remembered pudding pops.  You know, the ones that Bill Cosby would advertise on tv back in the 80’s.  My Mom would get the variety pack, and my sister and I would fight over the chocolate + vanilla swirl ones.  I even remember my sister offering to let me hold her pet turtle if I gave her the last swirled pudding pop.  She was always the negotiator!

Fast forward 30 years.  Bill Cosby no longer reps pudding pops.  (In fact, they aren’t even made anymore.  To which I ask, “Why the heck not?”)  Devo no longer dominates the radio waves.  (“Why the heck not?”)  Parachute pants are no longer in style.  (“Why the heck not?”)  Mullets and dudes with perms are long gone, too.  (“Thank goodness!”)  But my love for popsicles has most certainly not faded away.

These tropical Coconut Lime Popsicles are a fun and refreshing snack on a hot summer afternoon!While grape popsicles will always hold a special place in my childhood memory, my taste buds have evolved a bit over time.  I know that upstate New York is nowhere near the tropical beaches of the Caribbean, but I’ve been craving tropical flavors lately.  And since it’s hot outside (well, upstate New York’s version of hot…), I decided some tropical popsicles were in order.  And that’s how these Coconut Lime Popsicles were born!

I set out to make these layered popsicles, but it turns out that you can’t really see the difference between the coconut and lime layers.  (Look closely…it’s there!)  In my mind, the limeade would be a bit more green.  I thought about adding a couple drops of green food coloring, but I decided to forgo that since we’re nowhere near St. Patrick’s Day right now.   But can I just tell you how delicious these Coconut Lime Popsicles were?  They didn’t last very long in our freezer!  (And my sister wasn’t even around to help polish these bad boys off this time.)

These tropical Coconut Lime Popsicles are a fun and refreshing snack on a hot summer afternoon!Since the colors of the two layers turned out so similar, you could easily just mix these together and skip the extra work of freezing the popsicles in layers.  However, I still found it kinda fun to go from lime to coconut and then back to lime again.  And the layers thing didn’t take that much extra work.  No matter which way you go, I can promise you that these popsicles will be the perfect treat on a hot summer afternoon.

You put de lime in de coconut…(I just had to make sure you didn’t forget about the coconut song!)

  1. Man, that song is RAD, I can’t stop singing it!
    And I’m totally with you on grape popsicles: legit stuff.
    But not as legit as these bad boys. I looooove that you made ’em paleo-friendly too. Great job D!

    1. Haha, I apologize (after the fact) for getting that song stuck in your head all day, Alpha! Maybe just stick a popsicle in your mouth, and that’ll keep you from singing it all day again today. Hah! 🙂

    1. Haha…I apologize (after the fact) for getting that song stuck in your head, Kathy! It was stuck in my head the whole time I was making these pops…so I figured I would just share the love with you. Hah! 🙂

  2. David, when I was growing up, my favorite popsicles were… lavender! Relax, just teasing your:) Respect your choice – grape ones must have been delish! And I definitely love this coconut Lime combo – so refreshing! And lastly, maybe I should make some lavender-lime or lavender-honey popsicles, ah?

    1. Hahaha…why am I not surprised about you and your lavender popsicles, Ben! Although I must admit that lavender + lime and lavender + honey both sound quite tasty for these brutally hot summer days that we’ve been having lately.

    1. Hahaha! These pops are indeed quite tasty for a summer treat. But when you’ve got a popsicle in your mouth, you can’t sing the coconut song…not sure if that is good or bad. haha! Thanks, Kennedy!

  3. Hi David! I love anything coconut! Twice a year (Easter and my birthday) I make my carrot cake which has coconut in it and toasted coconut on top of the frosting. Why only twice a year? Because I cannot leave it alone! Question – it looks like unsweetened coconut flakes here, is it?

    1. You and me both, Dorothy! I can’t make my carrot cake too often because it just disappears too fast around here. It’s like a magic cake…*poof* and it’s gone. Haha! Yes, these are indeed unsweetened coconut flakes here. Good eye!

    1. Thank you so much, Lucie! We pretty much devoured these pops, too. The flavor combo was perfect for these crazy hot summer days that we are having lately. Enjoy!

    1. Hey, I could totally get behind a splash of rum thrown into these popsicles…not sure why I didn’t think about that when I made them! Well, I guess this version is safe for the kiddos, right? 🙂 Cocktail popsicle, huh…now you’ve got my mind spinning with ideas!

  4. Great, now I have this song playing in my head! These look amazing Dave and you brought up (un)fond childhood memories too- The Aussie popsicles came in boxes with all the same white packaging so you had no idea what flavour you’d get and there were the dud ones (orange and green). They should have all been these coconut/lime hybrids!

    1. Haha! I’m sorry (not really) about putting that song in your head all day now. Dude, I totally remember those generic popsicle packages where you couldn’t tell the flavor. My sister and I would press the packaging to the side and try to figure out what flavor it was. Nothing like a surprise when it comes to what you are eating, right?

  5. Grape popsicles. You brought back memories with that as well as those Jell-O Pudding pops. I was totally a fan of the swirled pops! A huge yum and yes to these coconut lime pops. Hands down one of my favorite tropical dessert combinations!

    1. Oh my gosh! I’m visiting my sister this weekend, and we were totally talking all about Jello pudding pops and grape popsicles. Those were the days! But now we’ve graduated to these coconut lime flavors instead. (Ok, I might still eat a grape popsicle now and then…just for old times sake of course!)
