Coconut Chai Popsicles

Coconut Chai PopsiclesRight now I’m considering how fortunate I am to have had this post waiting for me, ready to go with only a little bit of writing required.  It’s really hot here.  I thought I was handling the heat better than I usually do every time this year, but I guess not(although trying to bake doesn’t help!).  It’s hot!  And I think it feels even hotter when you want to go inside at 1 in the afternoon and the kids just want to go down the slide one more time.

Really, these popsicles are all I want to eat all day.

Just as a small note, my son loves the taste of these, but I would think twice about letting him have one if they were caffeinated.  I never made a big deal about caffeine before because I’ve never consumed a whole lot of it and when I did, it’s never bothered me up until recently.  So if it bothers you or if your going to share with your kids and they aren’t used to it, make them decaf.

Another small note, you may have to keep an eye on these and freeze them fairly quickly.  I had a hard time poking the stick all the way in because it had already frozen almost solid.  Using full fat coconut milk will help with that because it will still be fairly soft but try to keep the time between layers fairly short, and pour the next layer while the first layer is still soft, but frozen just enough to stop the layers from mixing.  Or you can use a wooden popsicle stick which will make things much easier Coconut Chai Popsicles
