Cookies and Coconut Cream Popsicles are refreshing and naturally vegan frozen treats made with everybody’s favorite cookie. (You don’t have to be a kid to love these cookies and cream popsicles!)
Popsicle season is a little like swimsuit season…you’ve got to get started thinking about it early, and it takes some serious prep. You’ve got to locate last year’s popsicle mold, haul it out and dust it off. Maybe you’ll want to invest in a cute new shape…and you’ll definitely need a fresh supply of sticks. You’ve got to start thinking about flavors, too, because if you’ve forgotten, hot weather has a tendency to pounce on us out of nowhere. You never know when it will hit, so be ready with a freezer full of these refreshing, creamy, and dreamy Cookies and Coconut Cream Popsicles.
I’m already well into popsicle season, behind the scenes. I’ve been experimenting with coconut milk as a base. I like it because it has a nice refreshing flavor, and a creamy consistency. I think it works perfectly with Oreos. The flavor seems to echo the flavor of the creme filling in the cookie.
One of the nice things about coconut milk and cream is that while it freezes hard, it doesn’t get icy like milk, yogurt, or juice based pops do, so if you like your frozen treats creamy, this is one to try. And coconut milk has been proven to contain a healthy type of fat, so you can feel good about eating it or giving it to your kids.
I loaded a whole cookie at the bottom of each popsicle, and blended the coconut milk with crushed cookies. It not only looks pretty, it’s super yummy. You can use coconut milk OR coconut cream for this recipe. Coconut cream is thicker, and contains less water. I’d say they are interchangeable for this pop.

- I think the crushed cookies make the popsicle sweet enough without added sugar, but if you like a sweeter popsicle, you can add some honey or sugar to taste.
Cookies and Coconut Milk Popsicles
- 14 ounce can coconut milk, you can also use coconut cream
- approximately 15 Oreo cookies
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Shake the can of coconut milk well. Pour it into a small mixing bowl and add the vanilla.
- Take 6-8 cookies and crush them. You can do this by putting them in a small food processor, or into a baggie and then using a rolling pin to roll over it and crush the cookies. They don't have to be completely crushed, you can leave as much texture in as you like.
- Fold the crushed cookies into the coconut milk, don't mix too much, just fold.
- Spoon a small amount of the mixture into the bottom of 5 popsicle molds.
- Insert a whole cookie into each of the molds. Carefully insert a popsicle stick into the molds, the stick will fit right into the filling of the cookie and stand by itself.
- Fill the molds with the rest of the cookies and cream mixture.
- Freeze until solid. This will take several hours.
- To remove the popsicles, fill your sink with hot water, and immerse the mold up to, but not over the top lip and hold for 15 seconds. Remove from the water and then gently remove the popsicles.
- To store for later, wrap each popsicle well with waxed paper, and then put in freezer baggies.

Questions and Reviews
These look so Yummy! I’m looking for a mold you can use wooden sticks with… do you remember where you bought yours?
I bought mine at Cost Plus World Market, Angie, but you can get them on Amazon, too, here.
These popsicles look delicious and not too hard to make. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought Oreos were not vegan since the filling contains gelatin from animal fat. Thank you.
I looked it up again after reading your comment Chenai and it seems like the only issue is that there may be potential cross contact with milk, that is some of the equipment used to make oreos might have also been used to make products that contain milk. You might consider using another cookie, or even homemade Oreos!
