Summer Syndrome: Pina Colada Ice Pops

Remember, there were so many things that you really needed to beg for as a child? You waited for that one "yes" from your parents. Your favourite candy was often too sweet for your teeth, the yummy street food would have worms grow in your stomach and the ice cream vendor had used nothing but wastewater to make those tempting popsicles. Well, no one can stop you now, you are a grownup after all. So why not make your summers shine with your childhood memories? And nothing can be more exciting than making your own popsicles. So I decided to take out the booze from one the most popular cocktails and turn them into ice pops. I just wanted to keep it innocent and yet retain the fun and flavour of pina colada. You can always make yours with the rum in it.

Pina Colada Ice Pops


Pineapple (cut into cubes): 1 lb/ 500 gms
Coconut milk: 1 can
Lime juice: 2 tsp
Lime zest: 1 tsp
Sugar: 3 tsp


Freeze the pineapple cubes for three to four hours. Take them out and put them in a mixer-grinder with all other ingredients to from a smooth paste. The frozen pineapple stops the mixture from becoming watery. Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray. Insert a toothpick into each cube. Freeze it for four to five hours.

Once the pops are frozen, carefully take them out of the tray.

And now just have as many as you want.
