Morsels of Life - Coconut Popsicles

I'm going to start with a request - I recently added Google Friends (over on the right), and if you all would be so kind as to be my friends, I'd really appreciate it! It gets a bit lonely there sometimes. Thanks, and now for the normally scheduled recipe...

I had eaten some Edy's coconut bars a while back, and I wanted to see if I could replicate it at home. Was it as easy as sweetening up some coconut milk and then freezing or would it be much more complicated? I had to find out! I remembered the little pieces of coconut meat in Edy's coconut bars, so I went ahead and added some shredded coconut, and then I added some more. :) I used coconut milk with making these coconut bars, but you could probably also use coconut water, although the taste and texture would be pretty different.

There's some controversy about the health benefits of coconut milk, usually surrounding the fat content. On the negative side, coconut milk can be high in saturated fat, but on the other hand, a lot of the fat present is lauric acid, making it more similar to human milk than to fat from meat. On top of that, coconut is high in lots of minerals - like iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, selenium, and zinc, as well as folate and Vitamin C.

The final verdict? After tasting these, I think I'll stick to making my own. They're not difficult to make at all, and I liked the taste and texture of my homemade coconut popsicles better than Edy's (plus, they're about 25%-50% the price)! The only thing I liked better about the Edy's version is that their coconut pieces were smaller and better dispersed, but you could easily remedy that in the home made version without much extra work by blending the mixture before freezing.
