Baking is on the back burner for a while. Too hot to bake. So, I’m taking this opportunity to do something NEW FOR ME…making popsicles. In the past, I’ve made gelato and sorbet, but not popsicles.
What I’m really excited about is the variations that can be created. The sky’s the limit.
So, going forward, I’ll be posting different popsicle recipes using my SLIDE POPS by Tovolo. Found these at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Why do I love these Pop Molds?
Manageable size, not too large.
It’s not messy when eating.
No need for wooden sticks!
This product is food safe.
Each pop mold contains three pieces; a tube, a stick, a lid. There are four colorful pop molds in each box.
So, before using the pop molds, they are washed.
Only FOUR INGREDIENTS are needed to make these Creamy Coconut Slide Pops…whole milk, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk and a pinch of salt.
A blender is used to mix the ingredients. But, you can also use a bowl and a wisk.
I add the step of transferring the mixture from the blender to a large measuring cup with a spout. It makes for easy pouring into the pop molds.
I placed the filled pop molds in a dish towel lined container.
Then, off to the freezer for about four hours.

It tasted more like dulce de leche instead of coconut.
Next time, I’ll add coconut flakes and more coconut milk.
