Coconut Chai Popsicles

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

Right 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 🙂

I love chai, and chai with my favorite coconut? YUM! You know I’m so envious that you get to eat popsicle. SF has been having really cool summer and right now it’s like 70F I think? My heater turns on in the morning!!! I stopped making popsicles and ice cream… too cold to eat. You must envy me, but I miss hot (ok maybe not hot, warm) weather as I get older… I want to eat these and hang around at the pool side. I’m keeping this recipe and will make this in the future!

Yummy! How can you go wrong making anything with chai, but popsicles?! Ingenious 😀


6 Melissa @ Dash of East August 8, 2011 at

Oh yum! These look so good! And I’m absolutely loving the layers. I’m still trying to master the whole popsicle making thing, which would come in handy in this Georgia summer heat 🙂

I love chai tea, but with the summer heat I haven’t been in the mood for it! This looks like the perfect tea for a hot summer day.

19 Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel August 9, 2011 at

I’m not sure why but the colors and stripes made me first think of the cartoon Blues Clues … still trying to connect why i am comparing the two lol.. but really what i mean to say is that they look so fun and super delicious!! <3

Brilliant combination. And the layers just take it to another level. I’ve just discovered your blog and am kicking myself for taking so long. There’s so much I want to cook from here….


28 anda August 10, 2011 at

Wow, these look amazing! I love chai and coconut! I’ve never made my own popsicles, I guess it’s time to start!


29 Lindsay @ Pinch of Yum August 10, 2011 at

How fun! That red packet of Chai looks familiar… I can’t remember the name of it, but that’s the kind I use, too! 🙂


30 The Teenage Taste August 10, 2011 at

Oooh! This looks so yummy and interesting! These aren’t your average Popsicles, that’s for sure! 🙂

What a terrific flavor combination – these popsicles are so pretty! Love that they are non-dairy.

Such a clever popsicle idea! I bet the flavors were astounding.


33 David August 12, 2011 at

Oh, they look great – I love the stripes. And it’s so appealing that you only used three ingredients to make them. Your blog is really lovely Heidi.


34 Cate August 12, 2011 at

Heidi- these look so amazing. I can’t wait to try them when my self-imposed caffeine moratorium is over!


35 Reese@SeasonwithSpice August 14, 2011 at
