Banana-Coconut Pops Recipe

September 21, 2010


A friend recently sent me an article dedicated to popsicle making from the LA Times and included was a recipe for Creamy Coconut and Banana Pops. The tropical combination sounded divine but included greek yogurt and whole milk—two things my popsicle obsessed husband can’t eat.

To make it more eater friendly I substituted coconut milk for the dairy and they were not lacking. These island inspired frozen treats are flecked with bits of coconut and have a soft, creamy texture. Better still, they take mere seconds to make.

  • 2 very ripe bananas

  • 6 tablespoon honey


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

    I missed these in the LAT so thanks for posting. Also, it’s always a slam dunk for me when you use Louisa as a model — she’s got your look down, btw!
