Well then. If Popsicle Week isn't an excellent reason to come out of hiding, I don't know what is. And as the stars have aligned this year, I am actually in the Northern hemisphere popsicling in summer for the very first time. Hoorah! In celebration of such historic events, I've brought a particularly refreshing 'sicle to the party - creamy, sweet coconut and lemongrass at one end + light, icy coconut water with some pretty slices at the other. Ie. Beach babe up top, pool party Barbie down below.
Can I also just say that I blame these guys for a renewed addiction to condensed milk. Also lemongrass in everything this summer please.
Lemongrass Coconut Popsicles
1 can (400g) Coconut Milk
1 can (297g) Condensed Milk
1 -2 stalks Fresh Lemongrass, chopped finely (or 1 tbs Lemongrass Paste)
Young Coconut Chunks, sliced
Whisk coconut milk, condensed milk and lemongrass together.
Pour into popsicle moulds, filling 2/3 only (or any ratio you desire really) then place in the freezer and wait about 40 mins to an hour before inserting sticks (so that they don't fall over, smartie pants).
When frozen solid top up last 1/3 with coconut water and a couple of slices of coconut. Freeze again until solid.
Hashtag popsicle week continues all week so get your butts over to Billy's place and refreshrefreshrefresh okay? Over 50 bloggers are making popsicles so you may want to go clear out your freezer.
