Coconut Pops (with a Patriotic Touch)

Over the last month I have been hankerin' for coconut pops.  I have enjoyed a good amount of these:

Could I make my own homemade version?  This recipe comes pretty darn close!

Homemade Creamy Coconut Pops

1 - 15 oz can light coconut milk
2 tablespoons agave nectar (or use 1 tablespoon additional white sugar)
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Optional Patriotic Touch:  little blueberries and strawberry bits.

In a large bowl, combine the coconut milk, agave, sugar and vanilla extract.  Stir well until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour into popsicle molds, or little dixie cups:

If you wish, gather some small blueberries and slice off the sides of some strawberries and dice.

Drop some fruit in the popsicle molds:

Pop in some sticks, freeze and enjoy!

This popsicle had three blueberries and four pieces of strawberry.  You can add more for more color.
Have a wonderful 4th of July!

Life is sweet,

Thanks for sharing this! Definitely going to have to make these since it's 7,000 degrees out!
