Kick back and cool off this summer with these refreshing Pina Colada Popsicles. Made with only 4-simple ingredients and can easily be made non-alcoholic for everyone to enjoy!
Popsicles are a summer treat that are impossible to grow out of. I remember making popsicles as a kid with Kool-Ade or juice boxes. Sometimes I would just cut the top of the juice box off and shove a stick in them and a few hours later feel like the genius of my friends for creating a delicious homemade popsicle recipe. You could say, my recipe development skills started early if you count that as a recipe!
This Pina Colada Popsicle Recipe takes only 4-ingredients and minutes to make in a blender. I suggest making them the night before so they have plenty of time to freeze fully. If you are looking for another fruit recipe you could also make into a popsicle check out this Basil Peach Sorbet Recipe.
Ingredients you’ll Need
- Pineapple – I prefer ripe fresh pineapple chunks but you can also use canned pineapple that has been drained of the juice.
- Coconut Cream – Coconut cream is made from coconut pulp. This is a canned good and you will usually find it in the Asian or Caribbean section of a grocery store. The cream in the can usually separate from the coconut water in the can and is found at the top when the lid is removed. Don’t mix it up just scoop out the cream part.
- Granulated Monk Fruit Sweetener – A natural sweetener made from monk fruit that is sugar-free and keto-friendly.
- White Rum – You can also use dark rum but note that the color of the popsicles will be affected.
how to make pina Colada Popsicles
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the liquid into 6 popsicle molds. Make sure not to forget to add the popsicle sticks!
Freeze this fruit popsicle recipe for at least 4 hours or until completely hardened. I like to make these the night before so they have plenty of time to freeze and so I am not tempted to rush them.
- Replace pineapple with mango, berries, banana, or kiwi
- For a zestier approach replace 1 tbsp of coconut cream with lime juice
- Leave the alcohol out so everyone can enjoy
- If the fruit you are using is super ripe you can reduce the amount of monk fruit sweetener used or forfeit it altogether.
- Like a little texture. Add some finely diced fruit to each popsicle before freezing.
How long does this homemade popsicle recipe last?
Almost all summer… 3 months in the freezer! My kids love popsicles as much as I do so I like to make two batches… one with the rum and one without. But make sure to label which one is which or the kids may get more than they bargained for and no one wants that.
Can I use regular sugar?
Sure can! Just swap out the monk fruit for equal parts of granulated sugar or your preferred sweetener.
Where can I find popsicle molds?
I found mine on Amazon but some houseware stores sell them now too. I prefer the ones that push out vs pull out because if you pull and they aren’t as frozen as you though they are then you will likely pull the stick out and you can never really get it to stay firmly inside anymore.
With the pop-out kind if you push and they feel soft then it can back in the mold much easier to set without messing with how secure the stick will be in the end if that makes sense.
