Chocolate-Coconut & Fig Popsicles

Chocolate-Coconut & Fig Popsicles

Time for some chocolate-coconut & fig popsicles. Summer break is officially here!  Consuming a few more popsicles in the heat of the afternoon just feels like a good idea all around.  After all, aren’t popsicles summer on a stick?

June is my favorite month, hands down. Flowers in bloom, kids out of school, birds still chirping… I could go on and on.  This June hasn’t been in tune with summers past though with our intentions to avoid many of our favorite public summery locales.  My goal this year is to be creative in how we find our fun at home.  Homemade popsicles are an easy way to bring some fun to our hot afternoons in the backyard. 

I admit it’s taken me years to pull the trigger on my own set of popsicle molds, but I plan to get my money’s worth now that I finally own a set.  They’re seriously so easy!  Plus, there’s only one tablespoon of honey in the entire batch.  I’m counting these as a snack for my kids, so that’s important.  But, they taste like dessert, and that’s important to them. 

Chocolate and coconut is a delicious combination.  Dried figs add sweetness and a sophisticated flair.  I used coconut milk for a luscious, creamy base.  They’re somewhere between the fudgesicle of our youth and a creamy coconut mousse.  I hope you love these chocolate-coconut & fig popsicles as much as we do!
