Toasted Coconut Popsicles

Toasted Coconut Popsicles | The Hungry Housewife

So I suppose, I’m getting up there in age…

I realized it when I was at Disney for Foodie Blog Forum and I said to my son, I hadn’t ridden Space Mountain in like 25 years.

When I said those words, I thought, Oh my gaud, It’s happening, I bet my kids think I’m old.

And my theory was proven correct yesterday when my 10 year old son and I had a conversation.


Me..” Do you think Britney Spears is Pretty?”
Son..”Ewww, Mom, Britney Spears is OLD. She’s old Mom!”

The tea that I was drinking few out of my nose.

Britney Spears old????? No, can’t be. So I ran over to my computer to check the numbers.

Wikipedia states that her birthday is December 2, 1981. She is THIRTY ONE.

So I am posting these AMAZING easy to make Toasted Coconut Popsicles while I go out and get a face full of Botox, a Mommy Tuck. etc….the full “Joan Rivers” if you will.

I am 38, so that make me a haggity old hag in the eyes of my 10 year old son.

Seriously, make the popsicles. They are yum. I kept drinking the liquid before they were even frozen. And once they are frozen, biting into the popsicle and into the chewy toasted coconut is heavenly.

Notes

    I swear I must have that coconut gene or something.
    I mean I crave it all the time, and almost all my stupid recipes on the blog have coconut in them
    And I know you love your coconut too.
    So, these are really creative.
