Looking for a quick and refreshing summer-time treat that kids and parents will equally enjoy? After the success of my watermelon-berry popsicles last week, I decided to try a new variety, and they were delicious!
Not only are they light, cool, tasty, and quick to make (with just a few ingredients) but they are so much more healthy that the store-bought variety. I can’t wait to make more popsicles throughout the summer! They’re a no-guilt way to cool off and snack when it’s hot outside.
These piña colada popsicles use only a few ingredients and have no added sugar. Feel free to get creative with them and add (or eliminate) flavors to your personal taste! If you love coconut, then add some coconut flakes to the mix for a burst of coconut flavor!
- 20 ounce can pineapple in juice, undrained
- 1 cup light coconut milk
- 1 container Lime Greek Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 3 ounce paper cups
- Small popsicles sticks
- Pour entire can of pineapple, coconut milk, yogurt, and lime juice in a blender and blend for until pureed.
- Pour into 3 ounce paper cups and place in freezer for 30 minutes to an hour (I recommend placing the cups on a tray to make them easier to take in and out, and to ensure that they don't tip).
- After the popsicles have had a chance to harden (but not solidify completely), place a popsicle stick in the middle of each cup. Return to freezer and chill until frozen through (at least 2 hours).
- To eat, simply tear the paper cup away from the popsicle and enjoy!
Note: if part of the paper cup sticks to the popsicle when removing, simply run the popsicle under cold water and the extra paper will come right off!
