We don’t do a lot of fruit in the Bejelly household due to watching our sugar intake. My son tried his first orange a month ago – yes, my 23-month-old son just ate an orange. Anyhow, he went gaga over it. I bought a bag of oranges for him thinking he would eat them in a week but he ate one and then was done with it. I’ve had 6 oranges sitting lonesome in my fridge and since I’m on a Popsicle kick, I figured I put a couple to go use.
This recipe is super simple and so crazy good. You might notice that they’re not neon orange and more of a soft buttery yellow. I didn’t want to mess with using turmeric to deepen the color because the flavor was spot on and I was afraid the turmeric would give it a hint of taste and mess everything up.
- 3 cups of boiling water
- 1½ cup of coconut shreds
