one of our favorite summertime rituals is making homemade popsicles. this week we made our first of the season – kid-friendly piña colada style! i saw the recipe on babble.com’s family kitchen and they had me at “coconut milk.” i also loved that no cooking was involved in these whatsoever (while some fruity popsicles require cooking the fruit and sugar to make syrup first.) so i gathered up some ingredients – all organic, of course.
- 1/2 fresh pineapple
- 6 tablespoons 100% white grape juice concentrate (i used regular white grape juice & it was fine)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup plain yogurt
then i threw it all into a blender and pureed.
poured it into one of our many popsicle mold sets… (or you could use ice cube trays and toothpicks or paper cups and popsicle sticks.)
we let them freeze for 6 hours (or overnight) and then we totally enjoyed them on an afternoon playdate.
mommy and daddy even got to have a summery little treat by adding malibu rum to the leftover blended popsicle liquid…mmmmm!
here’s to summer, and many more homemade popsicles to come – check out this link for over 50 of them!
