Margarita Popsicles. (No tequila required)

  

I made these on a whim – let’s just say it’s been YEARS since I’ve drank tequila, let alone a margarita – but I got this stunningly beautiful, very coarse, Himalayan pink salt and I had a craving for that margarita-y symphony of tart and saltiness. 

These are pretty basic. I’m sure you could add 1/4 cup of tequila if you wanted to, to add some “oomph” if you will, but I think they taste pretty damn good how they are. 

Be careful with the salt though; it will rapidly melt the popsicle (duh).  

Ingredients 

  • 1 can lite coconut milk, shaken as well as you can
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • Juice from 2 limes, equal to about 1/2 c 
  • Maple syrup or other liquid sweetener of your liking, honey or agave would be fine
  • Coarse grain salt for serving, regular salt is fine if you can’t find any other

 

Whisk together the 1/2 cup lime juice with 1 1/2 cup coconut milk and 3-4 tablespoons of maple syrup. 

Taste. 

Not sweet enough? Add more sweetener. Not creamy enough? Add a bit more coconut milk. 1/2 a cup of lime juice should be sufficient but you can always adjust it to your liking. 

Pour into popsicle molds – you should have enough for 4 popsicles. 

Freeze overnight. 

Right before serving, rub a slice of lime over one side and sprinkle with a pinch of coarse grain salt. 

Enjoy!
