Matteo here, how are You today? Fridayyyyyy!!! Yay. The whole weekend ahead of us. Which are Your plans? I think I would love to have a nice dinner, some relax, a walk in the sun and some baking with Maria.
I was looking through mail, comments we have received in the past months and it was funny to realize that almost everyone call us Koki. It is funny cause it seems we are japanese or chinese: Koki “Chan” Doo. Despite me and Maria love those countries, our name is not inspired by them.
KokiDoo was born when we were thinking about a name to give to our baking blog. I came up with the idea to name us like that magical, sweet, delicious thing that cheers You up in Your worst moment and celebrate Your success: the awesome “cookie dough”. Exactly, our name is pronounced like cookie dough. My suggestion was to write it as You pronounce it and in that case it would have been KukiDoo. Unfortunately in Sweden, Kuk means “cock” so we had to “Swede” the name and it became KokiDoo.
Now that I clarified our name and that You know that we are Matteo and Maria and not Koki and Doo, I can introduce You our nice sweet treat: “Orange Coconut Popsicles”. We are trying to prepare You for the summer as You noticed also in our previous post. We had a “Sunshine Citrus Cake” with its Mediterranean flavors, followed by “Cherry Heart Pastries” with black cherry jam. To prevent the heat or to get used to the hot summery weather, You could eventually treat Yourself with this creamy, fruity, extremely easy-to-do Orange Coconut-flavored Popsicles. Maria had a lot of juicy oranges in the fridge the last days…You know, it is always nice to have some Vitamin C around. Plus, oranges are so intensely tasty! She decided to combine oranges with coconut which is one of her favorite flavor. The result is a Popsicle which is refreshing, cold, creamy and fruity!
Before to go and check the recipe, I have to mention that KokiDoo has a amazing surprise for our KokiDoo Friends. We will give You all the details in the next post but if You love what we bake…well, You may be able to actually taste our desserts. They are real, no baloney! And it is not everything, other nice sweet surprises are coming! Stay tuned with KokiDoo!
