Mounds-inspired – Coconut Popsicles

Coconut Popsicle

It’s summer time and hotter than ever here in New Mexico.  I’m doing everything I can to keep us cooled down and from over-heating in this 100 degree weather.  My favorite paleta or popsicle is coconut.  I love all things coconut.  Mounds and Almond Joy candy bars are some of my favorites…so I had to figure out how to combine that flavor with my favorite popsicle.

Check out my recipe:


  • 1 1/2 cup Coconut Water
  • 1/2 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 cups Coconut Flakes + extra
  • pinch of Cinnamon
  • pinch of Nutmeg
  • Chocolate Magic Shell


  • Blender
  • Popsicle mold or small plastic cups with popsicle sticks (these can be found in the craft section of most stores)


  1. Combine Coconut Water, Sweetened Condensed Milk, Milk, Coconut, Cinnamon and Nutmeg in a blender until well mixed, but not smooth.  You want it to be a little chunky from the coconut flakes.  
  2. If using a popsicle mold: pour and freeze several hours until fully frozen, about 4 hours.
  3. If using plastic cups: pour and freeze until not fully solid, about 1-2 hours.  Place sticks in center of each pop and return to freezer to fully freeze, about 4 hours total.
  4. Remove popsicles from mold or cups (if needed, run under warm water to loosen).  Dip end in Magic Shell and sprinkle with extra coconut.
  5. Enjoy!
