Pina Colada Popsicles


I used to make the most awesome frothy and rich pina coladas from scratch. However in watching my calories I haven't made it in a few years so I thought I'd make a pina colada popsicle instead. This recipe only requires three ingredients and is super easy, healthy but creamy.  The key is to not let the pineapple overwhelm the batter. To cut back on sugar I use Ideal sugar for all my recipes.  If you don't have Ideal you can use banana to sweeten this recipe, I'm just not a big fan of bananas and always think they ruin any smoothie they are in. Other good additives are rum but just a tad because it doesn't freeze well. Or you could use rum extract, coconut extract if you don't taste enough coconut in these. For an added kick add some ginger beer.

Ingredients

  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 2 cups chopped pineapple 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender, until smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds, and freeze.
