Pina Colada Pops

by Samantha ~ April 26th, 2012. Filed under: eats, the homefront.

Last week, I tried my hand at making homemade Popsicles! I ordered a set of molds off of Amazon and set to work.

In a blender, I mixed up a banana, a can of cream of coconut, and a can of crushed pineapple in its juice. I had a TON of mix left over after I filled the molds, so I blended in some Myer’s Rum and made pina colada cubes!

I might have used a little too much rum, because they are strong! I’ve only had little spoons at a time and it feels like I’m doing a shot. A cold, creamy, delicious shot.

I’d love to learn some more Pop recipes, so please share if you’ve got any!

    Back to the pops….

    Im a photographer and food writer these days and have my own food blog called takeBackYourtable.com. I do a lot of pops with kefir bec its so good for u and so delicious. Im addicted to buying popsicle molds and particularly love the silicone ones by Orka. If you ahev no patience to wait 6 hours to freeze them you should buy one of these: http://www.zokuhome.com/ . It takes 7 minutes!! thin of the concoctions you and your amazing mixologist hubby could come up with. I did a shirley temple one for the kids recently. Big hit! How cool are the designs? Dont you just want to eat the actual pop mold?

    Anyway, loving what you do. you are inspiring!
