Piña Colada Ice Pops

I’m back with another boozy ice pop recipe! Remember those Boozy Frozen Peach Pops? So TASTY!

Let’s discuss these Piña Colada Ice Pops. One little bite will instantly transport you to HAWAII.

It’s the RUM! It’s the COCONUT! Wait….It’s the PINEAPPLE!

Put on your grass skirt, dust off your coconut shell bra and LET’S DO THIS.

It’s like drinking a Piña Colada without the glass!

I kinda feel like we should stick a cocktail umbrella in one….

Aloha, Wiki wiki aaaaaaand MAHOLO.

And we’re off!

Ingredient gathering. So simple, right?!

It ALLLLLL goes into a blender.

Pour it all over a fine mesh sieve.

Push it through with a spatula. We want a smooth ice pop, don’t we?

Pour the mixture into your ice pop molds.

FREEZE. Then after about 30 minutes, add your sticks. NOW FREEZE!

If you don’t do this, your sticks will sink or be all crooked. These pops take awhile to set. Like…a DAY!

Here’s the ice pop mold I used. I love it!

Enjoy those bad boys.

It’s like being on a beach but without all the pesky sand, brah.

 

Piña Colada Ice Pops

makes 7-8 pops

recipe from Gourmet Magazine

  • 3 cups chopped fresh pineapple (14 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup well-stirred canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light rum

 

Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup, pressing on and then discarding solids. Pour into molds. Freeze 30 minutes. Insert sticks, then freeze until firm, about 24 hours.

 

If you’re looking for a good ice pop mold, I recommend this one!

    Did anyone else notice how nicely the yellow lines in your “Now Freeze!” photo imitate the yellow ice pop rectangles in the previous photo, though perpendicularly? The old designer in me is struggling to get out….
    These look so summery and refreshing! My sister would love these, though probably without the rum [she's 13 ;) ].

  • July 11, 2012

    These looks so, so, delicious!

  • July 11, 2012

    Oh. EM. GEE. These look so freaking awesome. and I LOVE those moulds, I am so glad you put the link to them!

  • July 11, 2012

    I used your 1oz to 1 cup ratio of of your last ice pop post to experiment with some of my own, but I really want to know, how, as we appear to have the same mould you got them to come out looking so perfect and non slightly melted by trying to get them to come out at the top!!!

  • July 11, 2012

    This is the kind of thing that makes me wish I had a bigger freezer. No way would those pops fit vertically. Maybe I can do the ghetto ice-tray-and-toothpicks version like Joy used to?

    Oh my! We just got a Trader Joe’s and I just bought a can of coconut milk…AND I just happen to have a currently unopened bottle of banana rum. Coincidence? I think not!

  • July 11, 2012

    I like this method of getting a pina colada into my face without having to suck it through a straw.
    PS, I love that tea towel and I NEED that ice pop mold in my life. I’ma order it right now.

  • July 11, 2012

    Yes. Yes. Yes.

  • July 11, 2012

    Mmmm pina coladas are one of those drinks I secretly love but am too embarrassed to actually ever order. But it’s totally cool in ice pop form. Adding this to the Summer 2012 Ice Pop to-do list!

    I just got the ingredients to make these:

    http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2012/07/apricot-rice-pudding-pops

    but I think yours will be next on my list. q: do you think not including the rum will affect the recipe at all–other than probably allowing the pops to freeze faster? (I’m trying to figure out if I need to add any additional liquid of another variety…)

    • Tracy
      July 11, 2012

      I’ve had my eye on that recipe! It looks fantastic. The pops will freeze faster for sure. I think you should just sub the rum with more coconut milk. Should work out just fiiiiiiine.

    These look amazing! Do you think dark rum would work in these?

    • Tracy
      July 11, 2012

      It should still be good!

  • I have rum. I have pineapple. I have a new purpose in life.

  • July 11, 2012

    whoa. These look perfect! I want to eat all of them in a row popsicle happy hour style.

    So last year my friend got me an popsicle maker that freezes them in under 10 minutes (i don’t know how, it’s just magic). I’m wondering how fast it will make boozy popsicles…hopefully less than 12 hours!

    • Tracy
      July 11, 2012

      Test it! Report back!!! I’m so dang curious.

    These look so incredibly refreshing! I totes would put a flower in my hair & put on some steel drum music on the ol’ ipod as I consumed about 10 of these babies!

    Tracyyyyyyyy, I’m really glad I’m pregnant, but you’re making not want to be pregnant. I have mom guilt.

  • July 11, 2012

    I just hit ‘purchase’ for a set of ice pop molds on Amazon. I’ve been holding out from this craze for a while, but you just made me change my mind!

    • Tracy
      July 11, 2012

      YAY!!!!!!!!! You did it!!!!

  • I want [more like need] that ice pop mold!

  • July 11, 2012

    Definitely alright with skipping the pesky sand. Love this summer treat!

  • Holly
    July 11, 2012

    You’ve sold me on your boozy pops. I ordered the molds as well and can’t wait to make these.

  • July 12, 2012

    I was looking for new summer ideas and… here you are! I’m going to Hawaii just with the help of… a popsicle!!!

  • July 12, 2012

    Adding these to my list. I picked up the People’s Pops book a couple of weeks ago and I think we’re on our 7th or 8th round of popsicles. Yesterday we made Watermelon Lemongrass. YUM!

    I like your trays much better than the ones I bought at Peet’s last week.

  • July 12, 2012

    That looks so yummy and refreshing. Love pina colada!!!

  • Muriel

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You totally rock Tracy!I was so hoping you’d be making pina colada pops when you mentioned pineapple recently. I can’t wait to try this recipe out.

    • Tracy
      July 12, 2012

      Yer welcome!!!!!!!!!!

  • July 12, 2012

    Best idea ever! Love anything pina colada flavored! (And anything Hawaii related)

  • jessica

    I made these and they were delicious! I just used an ice cube tray though. I didn’t even have tooth picks to stick in them so it was just like sucking on a delicious ice cube, haha. Thanks for the recipe! I love ALL the recipes that you post!

    • Tracy
      July 15, 2012

      Hahaha! I bet they would be really good in a glass of OJ!!! Good move!

    would love to be able to do something like this with long island ice tea..thats my fav…tho like pina coladas too, lol.. any ideas anyone? thanks much in advance..

    • Tracy
      July 15, 2012

      You have to be very careful with alcohol ratios or else they won’t freeze! I think that you would have to really water down the pop to make it work!

  • brandi

    tracy, i think you probably are going to make amazon straight sell out of those popsicle molds with this and the last boozy pop recipe.

    Tracy,

    How long do you think these will stay fresh in the freezer? I want to make them ahead of time for a party, but not too far ahead that they taste funky!

    Thanks!

    Christina

    • Tracy
      July 18, 2012

      Oh. hmmm. First that depends on your freezer. Does your freezer have a funk? You can unmold them and put them in a few freezer bags to prolong the life. Let’s say…a week. How does that sound? This is soo technical, huh?

  • July 30, 2012

    Yum! Sounds great for happy hour! I need another gadget like I need well, another gadget but this Popsicle mold Ive got to have!!

  • August 2, 2012

    I am about to make these for a weekend at the lake. I was considering using a flavored rum, most likely coconut. Do you think it would be coconut overkill though? Also, do you think frozen pineapple would work?

    • Tracy
      August 2, 2012

      I think it should be fine! I wonder if the coconut changes the alcohol %…which mean you could put more in! Good luck and let me know how it goes!

    Tracy, I prefer a creamy pop versus an icy one. Do you think it’d be all right if I subbed the water for more coconut milk?

  • Carolyn

    Could you share a recipe for rum punch freezer pops. I use a vacuum sealer to put the juice in and freeze them after filling the plastic sleeves and sealing them on top. Refer to StephanieLynn’s website DIY for the instructions.

    Bulk recipe for half gallon at a time. Thanks.

  • Sunshine

    I was wondering if it’s completely necessary to pour the mixture through the mesh sieve?

    • Tracy
      June 23, 2014

      If you don’t you’ll get some stringy bits of pineapple in your pop. It’s really up to you! For me, I wanted a creamier consistency in my popsicle.

  • Crystal Mann

    To do it non alcoholic do you just take the rum out or do u take it out and replace it with something?
