Hubby has been wanting to go on a road trip for a long time. Having been on many family road trips when I was younger, I felt I had done more than my share. These were fun trips, with family, squeezing into cars that didn’t fit all of us and driving across the country and down to the States. We created a lot of memories on those trips.
On our recent trip, I decided that he could have his road trip and we drove from Vegas to San Diego. It was a long five hours and I’m really hoping he got the road trip bug out of his system! On our way, we stopped in a little town for gas and had some coconut popsicles. These were so good and so refreshing. The real coconut embedded throughout the popsicle was delicious.
I wanted to recreate these at home and found a recipe for these Mexican Coconut Popsicles. These actually didn’t turn out like the ones we had on our trip, they were a more creamier version. With all that cream and coconut flavour, these have been a hit!
