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?

 

yes, please.

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
