STEPS 1-3 Opening coconut & scooping out flesh
2. pour out the coconut water into another container and save. You will add some of this back into the mixture for our pudding and popsicles, but save the rest to drink yourself or give to your little ones. This is such a special treat, there is nothing like fresh from the source coconut water!
3. scoop out the flesh using a basic kitchen spoon. Don’t worry if you get some of the inside peel coming out with the flesh, you will cut that off later. Just focus on getting as much flesh out of the coconut as possible and set aside.
STEP 4 -Clean the flesh of the coconut
Peel off any hard pieces of the coconut from the flesh. You want ONLY the white creamy meat, no hard coconut shell or peel from the inside. Just use your hands to pick out any hard pieces, then take your chefs knife and cut off any dark, dry or rough pieces from the flesh.
Step 5-6-Clean coconut flesh and make pudding mixture
5.wash all the coconut flesh and make sure there are no hard bits.
6. Transfer all coconut flesh, banana and the rest of the ingredients to your blender or food processor. ( if using a food processor you will want to double or triple this batch to make it worth while in a large container)
STEP 7-8 Blend ingredients and add to your mold of choice.
7-Blend on high speed until the mixture is super smooth and creamy. If you added too much coconut water and the mixture is too loose then you can just use it for the popsicles. If you want to spice this one up, feel free to add any kind of chopped up fruit to the final mixture.
8- Add the blended mixture to either (or both) the popsicle molds, and to mason jar’s. If you have any left over you can freeze in silicone treys and serve as yogurt or add to a smoothie for some extra fat and flavor.
