Coconut and vanilla bean ice pops
1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
1/2 vanilla bean, split lenghtwise and caviar scraped
3 to 4 tablespoons granulated sugar, to taste
-In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together coconut milk, vanilla bean pod, vanilla caviar, sugar, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture just begins to bubble; remove from heat (do not boil). Cover and let steep for at least 1 hour.
-Remove the vanilla pod and scrape any remaining caviar into pan. Whisk mixture to blend.
Transfer mixture to a large measuring cup for easy pouring and pour into ice-pop molds. Freeze until firm.
Tip: look for a good-quality full-fat coconut milk, not one labeled “light”. The best kinds are usually found in the Asian-foods aisle of the supermarket.
