Kiwi Coconut Popsicles

These popsicles are inspired by one of my favorite food blogs of da moment, Lady and Pups. She posted these fig popsicles a few weeks ago and I couldn’t stop staring at them. I mean…they’re just visions.

I’ve been looking for ways to use kiwi because I’m pretty sure there are absolutely zero kiwi recipes on this entire blog and I thought that was a bit strange. But then, I realized something: kiwis are best eaten exactly as they come. They don’t need to be ground up or baked or mixed with other fruits or oats. They’re best enjoyed in their very natural and fresh state.

Kiwi Coconut Popsicles

I didn’t do much to these except peel them and slice them in half (so they’d fit in the molds properly). The surrounding mixture is just sweetened coconut milk. I used light so it wouldn’t be overly creamy. And on a really hot day (read: everyday rn in LA) these hit the spot. They really do.

In other news, are you one of those psycho people that can bite into popsicles. Because you freak me out. Josh can do this and every time he bites down on one, I have to turn away because it’s a horrifying sight.

Anyway, this weekend + you + these popsicles. Get into it. Or them. Get into them.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Serving Size: 12 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 cans of light coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 kiwis, peeled and sliced

Directions

  • Just a heads up, the sifting of the powdered sugar is super important because then you’ll have little balls of powdered sugar throughout the coconut milk and that ain’t cute! In a bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, sifted powdered sugar and salt until smooth.
  • Next, halve most of the kiwis. Pour in a teeny bit of coconut milk into each mold. Place the kiwi slices at the bottom, facing outward. I placed them back to back so they would press against mold on either side. This made them super visible after the popsicles were frozen. Top them with a few more slices of kiwi and fill them about half way. Next, stick in the popsicles sticks. I found this the way to go since the slices of kiwis should help the popsicle sticks stand upright. Fill with the remaining coconut milk mixture. Transfer to the freezer and freeze for at least 8 hours, ideally overnight.
  • To remove, run the molds under warm water until they pop out when you pull on the popsicle sticks.

    I never seem to make anything with kiwi and that needs to change!! Especially if what I’m making is as pretty as this 🙂

    What pretty popsicles! The kiwi slices are really cool in these 🙂 Love how easy they are too, a little sweetened coconut milk and some fruit sounds like the perfect pop 😀

    My teeth hurt just at the thought of bitting into one, and I don’t even have sensitivity issues. I just CAN’T.
    Also, Lady and Pups is pretty much my favorite blog discovery in the past year. Have spent countless dollars and hours making her recipes, and each time I’m so damn happy.
    Need to make the popsicles now!

    UGH I can’t even stand to watch people bite popsicles! It makes my sensitive teeth hurt and I just feel like I’m going to die (maybe that’s a bit dramatic but meh) when I watch someone do that. On another note, I ate 4 kiwis in a sitting yesterday so it looks like next time I have to save them for these! xo

    I want a popsicle mold so bad soley for this recipe! I rarely eat kiwis, but when I do I’m always overcome by how beautiful they are. This recipe really showcases that beauty. Can’t wait to try/lick (NEVER bite) these 🙂

    Beautiful! I also cringe at the thought of biting into frozen things. It’s right up there with rubbing two cotton balls together. Aggghhhhhh! My tongue goes numb when I eat kiwi (is it just me?!) but these look delicious.. Maybe I’ll steal some figs from the neighbors’ tree and substitute! Popsicles are a must this week.. Holy heat wave!!

    I love, love Kiwi. But we have kind of a hate-love relationship. I always eat too much and then my mouth HURTS! Then I stop eating them for a while, then start again, only to eat too much AGAIN. Its a vicious cycle. If only I could learn moderation… and inner peace…
    But really, these look great. Maybe the coconut will be soothing and balance out my Kiwi-burn.

    Kiwi is one of the best fruits ever and yet, I don’t think I have any kiwi recipes on my blog either. Love the idea of these popsicles! I’m totally into them.

  • Reply Shelly @ Vegetarian 'Ventures August 14, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    Oh wow – I’ve never though about the lack of kiwi recipes out there (on your site or otherwise). Maybe it needs to be the next trendy fruit once figs stop having their moment. : )

    Very unique and enticing!

    These are beautiful! You’re right, kiwis are so great on their own no wonder they’re not baked into a ton of recipes, but I’m pretty sure kiwi in popsicle form is the best they can be!! Wanna make these ASAP!

    So I just discovered at the beginning of this year (my 30th year on this planet) that I’ve been allergic to kiwi my whole life. I just always assumed that the burning sensation was part of its weird, fuzzy little charm. Spoiler Alert: It’s not! Hahaha, what an idiot.
