I made these sweet and creamy dessert pops for youth group last week. They went super fast and unfortunately I didn't snap a picture. I used the leftover mixture to make a nice little virgin piña colada afternoon treat! However, even without the nicely staged and edited photos, I can vouch that these popsicles are quite delicious and very easy!
The recipe is ridiculously flexible- sub in coconut milk for cream of coconut, add mango or papaya, or garnish the pops with chunks of fruit. I have some cute popsicle molds that I found on sale at Wal-Mart for $1. However, if you don't have those, you can use ice trays (regular or water bottle style) with toothpicks or popsicle sticks. Another simple option is to use Dixie cups- 3oz disposable paper cups- with toothpicks, wooden ice cream spoons, or popsicle sticks.
What You'll Need:
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple
1 10 oz can cream of coconut
juice of one large lime
1 tsp vanilla extract
What To Do:
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend well. Pour into molds. Allow pops to set for 30 min- 1 hour before adding popsicle sticks. Freeze for at least two hours- and enjoy!
