Who says popsicles have to be sweet? Spice ‘em up with this original recipe showcasing the chameleon coconut - is it sweet or is it savory? It's sweet thanks to the soft basil and it's fresh thanks to the lime, with kick of heat from the cayenne! Perfect for keto and vegan peeps! Think frozen colada-margarita-rim mash up delischousness!!!



1 can coconut milk
¾ cup fresh basil, well packed
3 tbsp lime juice (fresh = 3 limes)

flakey salt, to taste



popsicle mold, saucepan, bowl, blender, spoon, (juicer for fresh limes)



  1. Simmer coconut milk and fresh basil over low-medium heat for 5-7 minutes, or until fragrant. Stir occasionally, so the basil doesn’t burn
