Continuing on the theme of cool treats for hot weather, the boys and I've been on a great popsicle making run. We've done all sorts of icy treats in the past, be it red, white and blue for the 4th holiday or making homemade slow-melt popsicles, but this time we're turning tropical for our inspiration.
This simple recipe will have you dreaming of a Caribbean vacation in no time. I know this is a family food blog, but if you were so inclined, a wee dram of rum would turn these into a nice special treat for grown-ups!
Coconut Pineapple Pops
1 - 14 ounce can light coconut milk
1 - 1 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple
juice of one lime
1/4 cup+ sugar
In a blender, combine all ingredients.
Blend until smooth.
Taste. Add any additional sugar as desired.
Pour into popsicle molds, or if you need to, ice cube trays with toothpicks!
Freeze and try to be patient...for once they are frozen, you will be feeling like you are on a tropical island (note the palm tree!):
If you have any leftover liquid, either save it for the next round, or serve over ice for a special summer drink!
Peas and love,
