Homemade coconut cream popsicles are SO easy to make and ready in just a few hours. It’s the perfect treat during the summer heat. Dairy-free & frugal! Don’t forget to check out my homemade ice pops (made with real fruit and no sugar) and homemade apple crumble ice cream.



Popsicle Ingredients

Optional Ingredients


  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add a pinch of sea salt, or more to taste.
  2. Stir in the shredded coconut.
  3. Ladle or pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for a few hours, or until set.
  4. With frozen pops still in the freezer, prepare the chocolate “shell” coating by melting chocolate and coconut oil in a small saucepot over low heat, stirring constantly until just melted (or in the microwave for 15 second intervals, stirring between each).
  5. Once melted, remove from heat immediately and stir in a pinch of salt.
  6. Remove pops from molds and place them on a cookie sheet or cutting board lined with wax paper. Place board and pops in the freezer.
  7. Removing one pop at a time from the freezer, hold it over the pot of melted chocolate, and use a small ladle to drizzle or pour the chocolate over the pop. Quickly transfer the pop back to the lined board in the freezer. Sprinkle with additional flaked coconut if desired.
  8. Repeat until all pops are coated and in the freezer to set.
  9. Store pops in the freezer until ready to eat (cover if storing longer than a few hours). Allow to sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving – just long enough for the creamy coconut to soften, but for the crispy chocolate, shell to remain frozen. Enjoy!


  • Coconut milk- Choose organic if possible to avoid additives.
  • Maple syrup- Increase to 3 Tbsp if you want them sweeter, or are not dipping them in chocolate.
  • Dark chocolate- Substitute Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips for dairy-free.
  • Coconut oil – If using less chocolate, reduce this accordingly.
