I have always liked foods with little ingredients. It spells SIMPLE and UNCOMPLICATED and TIME-EFFICIENT and FOOL-PROOF to me. That’s just my alley. Because deep in my heart I think I am a peasant.  I like cakes made with 3 ingredients.

Now here is another one with just three: Coconut Lime Popsicles. If I had an ice cream machine, it would probably make the most delicious and exquisite ice cream. But I don’t (because I am a peasant at heart?). I only have popsicle molds.

These popsicles were a trial and error recipe. I started of with just coconut milk and honey (how cool would have been just two ingredients!!!), but found those a bit on the heavy side. Something acidic was missing. Now what would be closer than using the old classic combination of coconut and lime.
I have only made a couple of times, but I know this will be a staple dessert in our house. Simple and healthy and nevertheless a dessert. What else could one wish for?

1 400ml can coconut milk, full fat
1/2 lime, juice of
3 tablespoons agave syrup OR honey OR maple syrup
Yields 3-4

Place the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Without shaking or turning the can upside down, open the can and scoop the top layer of coconut cream into a bowl. Discard the water at the bottom.
Stir in honey and lime juice until well combined. Transfer mixture to popsicle molds and freeze until solid.


  1. It’s an art, learning to appreciate simplicity. I would like to say I am a peasant at heart, too, but…I don’t even have popsicle molds. I guess that makes me more of a pauper?

    haha… I guess you don’t have children. I didn’t have molds before my children.

  3. Wow love it! I used to have popsicle moulds (must find them) and I used to experiment with them as a kid. Must get back into that zone again. Thanks for reviving memories 🙂
