Pina Colada Popsicles

Pina Colada Popsicles with Homemade Coconut Milk

It’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day today.  Yeah!  I love this day.  Even though we’re scrambling around trying to pack in as much summer fun as we can into the last few weeks.  But this month was a piece of cake.  As soon as I received my blog assignment last month I went over to peruse.  YUM!  My assignment this month was Teaspoon of Spice written by Serena and Deanna, “two dieticians who love food”.  Serena and Deanna make their recipes light and a little healthier and they look amazing.  Healthy doesn’t mean less and they have proved this with their recipes!

We chose the Pina Colada Popsicles to make because we’re kind of on a Pina Colada kick since returning from Mexico in June.  This recipe is different from our Kid Friendly Pina Coladas that we made earlier because in this recipe, you make homemade coconut milk.  How cool is that?!?!

Pina Colada Popsicles with Homemade Coconut Milk

They were pretty easy to make and my kids loved them!  They tasted like the real thing, just in popsicle form.

Pina Colada Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flaked sweetened coconut
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated fat-free milk
  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar

Instructions

  1. Combine 2 cups coconut and evaporated milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat, and cook until tiny bubbles form around edge (do not boil), about 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Arrange cubed pineapple in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze at least 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Strain coconut mixture through a sieve over a medium bowl, pressing coconut with the back of a spoon to remove as much milk as possible. Discard solids.
  4. In a blender, combine frozen pineapple cubes, pineapple juice, agave nectar and milk mixture and blend until smooth.
  5. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight.

  1. Those are some happy kids! Do you think they’d freeze with just a little rum in them? 🙂

    • I say go for it. If it doesn’t completely freeze, grab a spoon and you have the best ice known to man! =o)

  2. Yum! Now that sounds like a pina colada that I can totally get behind. 🙂

  3. Sounds like a perfect treat to cool down on a hot summer day! I love that you include pics of your kids in your posts – they look like such a happy pair. You’re doing a good job, Mom!

  4. I love this piña colada popsicles look delicious!

  5. These look great. And so easy to make. Now I’m glad summer isn’t over yet so I have an excuse to make them.

  6. I love that you made your own coconut milk.

  7. So, I’m FINALLY getting around to commenting on our Group C recipes and so thrilled to see you had our blog this month and those gorgeous smiling faces with the pops! So love seeing kids enjoying healthy food that doesn’t have to be presented as “healthy food” – just food that looks and tastes good 🙂
