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.

Note ~

  • 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

Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Prep Time 10 minutes
Yield 6 popsicles
Author Sue Moran

Ingredients

  • 14 ounce can coconut milk you can also use coconut cream
  • approximately 15 Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • 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.

    Dear Sue, these are incredible looking popsicle – i have never seen any like it before! What a fabulous idea for a summer treat – I was wondering how you got the layered look, I just could not figure it out when I saw the pictures. You placed a cookie at the bottom of each mold and stuck the wooden popsicle stick into the cookie?! I admit, I would never come up with ideas like that – you are right, I need new popsicle molds. I like the classic look that yours have and will put them on my wish list. The kids would love these!
    Another wonderful recipe – thanks for the inspiration,
    Andrea

      Thanks for your nice words, Andrea, and yes, I just stuck the cookie into the mold first, and anchored the stick in it!

    Yes, Yes, yes. . .so ready for popsicle season because this means that the warmer weather is finally upon us. The winter has been especially hard in Boston this year. These popsicles would be the perfect way to bid that yucky weather adieu.

    I so agree, coconut milk makes the best creamy pops. These are just what I need on a hot afternoon by the pool!

    I’ll be honest here, Sue. What doesn’t work with Oreos? Seriously though-these are incredible popsicles!

    Great idea! My grandsons have recently ‘discovered’ Oreo cookies so I must make these for them when the weather turns a little warmer here 😉

    You are on your frozen treat GAME. And I haven’t even started thinking about it yet! I really should start brainstorming and list making….though I think I need to make these first. I suspect they’ll be the perfect muse.
