This Friday was my 31st birthday (thanks). J spent a lot of time making it really awesome and special. He made me a yummy coffee and coconut cake. I had my party at this neat pinball arcade.
I got a lot of super rad gifts too. Some wine, yarn, googly eyes, and some really awesome jewelry. I also got the book Crobots. It is nothing but crochet patterns for making robots. So radical!
As if making me a cake and throwing me a fantastic party wasn't gift enough, J also took me to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get me a new body pillow (which I am totally in love with). He also got me these Monster Fun Pops. Even though it is only March, it has been pretty warm already. I am hoping we aren't going to have another 100+ degree summer, but just in case, I want to be prepared. What better way than to make your own Popsicles?!?
My ingredients included:
- 1 Small can Coconut Milk
- 1 can Jackfruit (only use about 3 or 4 pieces of the Jackfruit and use the rest for something else)
- 1/2 C Coconut flakes
- 1/2 Can of Jackfruit Syrup
If you have never heard of Jackfruit, I highly suggest it. I always have to get it at the Asian market. It's similar to mango, in that it is somewhat fibrous. It is a lot sweeter than mango though. That is why I used the syrup in the recipe. Then I wouldn't have to add any extra sugar.
