PINA COLADA POPSICLES

The delicious combination of pineapple and coconut reminds me of summer. Add banana to the mix and you have the most delicious smoothies ever!!! Add rum and you have adult drinks - kind of like a pina colada. 

I dipped them in chocolate for added summer fun. And who doesn't like chocolate?

Technically these can't be called Pina Colada popsicles because I omitted the Rum to make them family/kid friendly but if you would like to make them with some kick then add a little Rum to the recipe.

4 Ingredients and healthy too (bonus)


I used shot glasses to make these cute popsicles. I simply inserted ice cream sticks into the glasses - because I pre-froze the banana and pineapple before I blended it and placed the mixture into the glasses I didn't have to worry about the sticks falling over - they were soooo easy to make and are a great size to - not to big or to small - also a great size for enough for kids.
I loved that it was frozen in glass and not plastic as I didn't have to worry about any weird things from the plastic leeching into your healthy treats.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 sweet pineapple
3 small to medium bananas
1 small tin of coconut milk
100grams 70% cocoa dark chocolate (optional)

METHOD
Peel your bananas and pineapple and slice into small pieces/chunks.
Place the pieces of fruit into freezer safe glass jars or containers and place in the freezer until frozen (I placed mine there over night - but 2 hours should do)
Take your frozen fruit and place in a blender - blend till smooth (scraping down the sides of the jug every now and then)
Add the tin of coconut milk and blend in
Spoon your mixture into the glasses/ moulds and insert sticks
Place back into the freezer and allow to re-freeze (roughly an hour or 2)
Once your popsicles are frozen  begin to melt your chocolate in a double boiler.
I put the chocolate in a small thick glass placed in a small pot of water and allowed it to melt over very low heat.
Un-mold your popsicles and dip in the chocolate. Wait a few seconds for the chocolate to harden then place back in the freezer until ready to be eaten
OR eat immediately!
YUM!
