don’t squint at me. i know that title sounds crazy-
crazy good maybe.
honestly, my favorite part of this recipe is the pie crust/coating
and that’s unusual for me. i am normally not the crust-girl.
i usually prefer a galette-like ratio of crust to filling (see here)
but something about using a coconut glaze to paste on graham cracker and toasted coconut dust to a cold popsicle?
the popsicle part is just ok, not really blog-worthy (as my house would now say) on it’s own
but i consider it more of a vessel for the crust goodness
ultimately it was a match made in heaven
they really brought the best out in each other

- ¾ cup coconut milk, divided
- 3 cups pineapple juice
- 1 cup powdered sugar, divided
- 1 cup sweetened and shredded coconut
- 1 package or less of graham crackers
- make popsicles by combining ½ cup coconut milk with 3 cups pineapple juice and ½ cup of powdered sugar. taste mix and make sure it's sweet enough. may use honey instead of powdered sugar or a combination there of.
- freeze in molds as usual
- remove popsicles from molds and freeze on parchment covered cookie sheet while you prepare the crust
- preheat oven to 350. spread coconut in a single layer and toast for about 8 mins max- stirring and checking every 2 minutes
- combine ¼ cup coconut milk with ½ cup powdered sugar and set aside
- cool coconut slightly then blitz in food processor until its all about half the size of the shreds
- remove coconut to a shallow bowl then blitz the graham crackers in the food processor until crumbs.
- gradually add graham cracker crumbs to the coconut bowl until it's a ratio that you like (some like more coconut, some like more cracker)
- when ready, bring popsicles out of freezer and brush on a light layer of the coconut sugar water
- then press into cracker/coconut coating
- shake off excess and set on tray to freeze again
- when all of are done, put back into freezer on the tray until the coconut sugar water has a chance to freeze.
- then move popsicles to ziploc or chosen storage container.
- store in freezer and enjoy in the next couple of weeks.
