Pina Colada Pops from Recipe Renovator | The taste of Puerto Rico in a frozen treat. No added sugar and kid-friendly.

The flavors of a piña colada in a frozen pop!

Right after college I spent two weeks in San Juan, Puerto Rico. My friend Chris was working on an architecture project over the summer at the Old Mission and had a spare bedroom. I spent most of my time while Chris was working hanging out with his friend Joyce.
Chris JoyceJoyce and I had a favorite bar we visited after sightseeing and going to the beach. Perhaps it was our favorite because we were fairly broke and drinks were 2 for 1?
Happy HourIt was the first time I had ever had a piña colada, and these were decadent: coconut cream, tons of sugar, real local pineapple. Between that and the bread pudding, I am sure I gained weight on that trip! (I pretty much gain weight on every trip. Don’t you?)

I used those flavors as inspiration for these summery pops, using real fresh pineapple, full-fat coconut milk, a little stevia, and rum extract. Enjoy! To make them look like mine, you’ll need this Mastrad ice pop mold. Note that these molds only hold about 1/4 cup of liquid, so plan accordingly.

Suitable for:

paleo, low-sodium, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, celiac diets

Not recommended for:

migraine diets (pineapple can be a trigger for some people)
