My favorite drink during the summer months is a frozen piña colada! Since I’m pregnant and not able to enjoy the alcohol version I have been drinking virgin piña coladas like they are going out of style. I bought a bottled mix at the store and have been making my own here at home by the blender full! A few nights ago I had quite a bit leftover in the blender and didn’t want it to go to waste so I decided with a few changes they would make the perfect ice pops that even my kids would enjoy!
- 16 ounces of Piña Colada Mix
- 5 cups of ice
- 1/2 cup of water
- Marciano cherries – no stems
- Popsicle mold
- In a blender combine piña colada mix, ice and water – blend until smooth.
- Push a cherry into the bottom of each popsicle mold and pour piña colada mixture to fill the mold. Stick a popsicle stick or paper straw into each one and freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.
**For some of the popsicles I added a few fresh strawberries into the blender along with the piña colada mixture and used it to top of the molds.
I have to say they turned out really yummy – all three of my kids and I have been enjoying them the past few SUPER HOT 90 degree days! I personally still have a thing for cherries in my drinks (I never grew out of it since sipping Shirley Temples as a girl) so that is my favorite part! Another fun part about these ice pops are the straw sticks – they add color and fun to each bite!
