Pina Colada Popsicle With A Banana Twist

I’ve been on this popsicle kick lately and have been experimenting with different flavors. I personally like to keep things as simple as possible, you know? It’s just much easier that way and it seems like most of the time, simple is better!

I’ve also been on this coconut milk kick since I can not have dairy so when I’m conjuring up recipes I’m including it as a base. Plus, it’s so darn good!

The awesome part about this recipe is it is totally customizable to your taste. Don’t want a strong taste of pineapple? No worries! Just put less. Want more of a coconutty flavor? No worries! Cut the banana and pineapple amount in half and pour the whole can.

If you add the amounts per what the recipe says, you’ll hardly taste the banana and it will have more of a stronger pineapple and coconut flavor. Yum.

The possibilities are endless — simply use this as a foundation to whatever your taste buds are in the mood for.

Another thing to keep in mind unless you have a bunch of popsicle molds, you’ll have extra pina colada mixture. Since we try to have as close to a waste-free kitchen as possible, I used the remaining mixture to make myself a pina colada drink. You can make it virgin or you can add some coconut rum and picture yourself on the islands.

Oh, and I added some gelatin to give your popsicle/adult drink a little boost of health goodness.

  4. Pour into popsicle molds
