Such a hot day in the Bay today! It got up to around 85 today and it’s only April. Jeesh.
To combat the heat, I got the idea to make my own Pina Colada Ice Pops. The recipe is super simple, and you can basically add any fresh finely chopped fruit to the mix to put your own twist on it (such as small blueberries or chopped up strawberries.)
Note: The popsicle molds I bought were super cheap and came with little straws built-in so you can make sure you can get ever drop of melted yummyness possible! You can check them out here.
Summery Pina Colada Ice Pops:
- 1 can coconut milk, any kind
- 1 large can crushed pinapple with juice (20 oz)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar (more if you like sweeter desserts)
- The juice of one lime
- The zest of one lime
Combine all of your ingredients in a blender and liquify. Taste the mixture and add more sugar if you prefer. Pour into your favorite popsicle mold and let it set in the freezer for at least 3 hours. The mixture makes about 16 regular sized pops, around 10 if you have larger molds.
So creamy and delicious, yummy!
Thanks and happy eats,
