During a stay, guests can pick a ripe coconut from the resort’s bountiful palm trees (well, point to the coconut—a gardener climbs the tree and cuts it down), then head to the kitchen where a chef breaks open the shell and helps you make a super-fresh coconut popsicle.
How to get a bit of this frozen coconutty tropicalness without a stamp in your passport?
Here’s the easy popsicle recipe from One&Only Palmilla. You’ll just have to pluck your coconut from Whole Foods or Juice Generation…
One&Only Palmilla Coconut Popsicle
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
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend at medium to fast speed for one minute. Fill a popsicle mold and place in freezer; when half frozen, remove from freezer and insert popsicle stick. When completely frozen, loosen the popsicle by running warm water over the outside of the mold. Enjoy!
