Palm to Coconut Popsicle at One&Only Palmilla

coconut popsicle recipeWith the explosion of farmers markets and the locavore movement, everyone is interested in knowing where their food comes from. One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico, is taking the concept a step further. The new “Palm to Popsicle” program lets kids at the resort see the journey of a coconut from a palm tree, to the kitchen, and into a freshly made popsicle.

As an official “Coconut Hunter,” when a child spots a ripe coconut in a tree, a gardener will cut down the coconut. They will then head into the resort’s kitchen where the children will work with a chef to break open the shell and then help to make a fresh popsicle from a straight-from-the-tree, hyper-local coconut.  Children can take home the recipe for their coconut treats.

 

One&Only Palmilla Coconut Popsicle

Servings: 12

2 cups of fresh coconut water
2 cups of chopped coconut “meat”
1 1/2 cups of unsweetened coconut milk
2/3 cups of pure agave syrup
2 ounces of fresh lime juice
Grated zest of one lime 

Step 1: Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend at medium to fast speed for one minute.

Step 2: Fill a popsicle mold and place in freezer; when half frozen, remove from freezer and insert popsicle stick.

Step 3: When completely frozen, loosen the popsicle by running warm water over the outside of the mold. Enjoy!
