Earlier this summer I bought a cheap popsicle mold when I was browsing through a kitchen store and I have most definitely gotten my money’s worth. I started with simple fruit juices or homemade creamsicles (OJ + heavy cream), then I concocted these fruity margarita pops and I’ve made them 3 times in a month…

I knew I wanted to make a popsicle that included margarita flavors (tequila and lime) plus coconut (my current go to fruit flavor). Then I got inspired by some fresh strawberries and voila these Strawberry Coconut Margarita Popsicles were created.

I first made them at the beach, but I felt like I wasn’t actually tasting any tequila, and HELLO, it’s supposed to be a margarita popsicle, I want to know there’s alcohol there.

Sooo I played around with adding more and I think I’ve found the perfect amount of tequila and the popsicles still freeze solid.

You could also omit the tequila if you’re looking for a kid-friendly summer treat. And if you don’t have a popsicle mold you can use dixie cup and popsicle sticks, get creative, you need these popsicles in your life.
