Strawberry Mango Coconut Pops

Posted by

I am happy to announce that I just got back from one of the best weekends that I’ve had in a loooooooonnnnngggg time! It was full of peace and positive energy and I feel totally rejuvenated and ready to blog again! Woop, whoop!

As you know, June was supposed to be frozen treats month on Como Water. And alas, it’s the 24th and I’m posting my first frozen treat. Ay vey :(. So, I’ve decided to post frozen treats for the rest of the month… and, wait for it, wait for it, for the rest of the summer too! I’m kinda addicted to making pops and ice cream and granitas, and figured, why stop in June when I can go all summer long! :)

Here’s the first of many popsicle recipes to come… it’s a culmination of summer, as well as some of my favorite flavors. If you do not have a popsicle mold don’t fret! (I just got one actually.) You can easily use dixie cups, or make a sorbet or granita with these flavors. Later this week, I’ll be sharing more pops and my first ice cream of the summer! Stay tuned and have a  Happy Sunday folks!

  1. These popsicles look amazing. I am glad you decided to extend frozen treats for he rest of the summer. Sorbets are my frozen addiction.

  2. These look beautiful, and very tasty! Glad you had a good weekend

  3. I am glad you had such a marvelous weekend. I am even more glad for these delicious sounding pops. These will definitely cool you down on a hot summer day. Even at the end of June, I am looking forward to having this recipe in my back pocket in August.

  4. I’m salivating over these popsicles. Everyday in NOLA has been 87+ degrees…as early as 6 am! I could certainly use a cold treat. This sounds like a great flavor combo too:-) Nice touch with the coconut.

  5. These look too good!! I have a popsicle mold that I’ve never used, and as hot as it has been so far this summer, I will be using it soon! :-)

  6. Tiffany, these look delicious–so cool and colorful! The perfect summer treat indeed.

  13. I had a popsicle mold in my hand this morning and decided not to get it. Silly me!!! I will go back and get it and I’m looking forward to your recipes. Loving this one!!!

  14. Woo! I love summer-long frozen treats! Keep ’em coming! These look so pretty!

  15. Tiffany, these look like a beautiful sunset and I am sure they are delicious! Love this type of thing in the summer, I need to get some of those popsicle molds :)!

  18. Colorful and delicious!! I just so happen to have those exact popsicle molds hiding in one of my cabinets… Gonna have to bust them out to try these :)

  19. First of all I love your popsicle molds!! I need to find ones like that…. I have the cheapy plastic kind and I like the authentic look with popsicle stick. PS… where do you buy popsicle sticks? I looked around and I only found craft sticks and I’m not sure if they are meant for food. I love popsicles and with our heatwave… we could use them to cool off. Love the flavor of the mango and strawberry together… this is my kind of combo!! Well done!! ~ Ramona :)
