A few weeks ago, while reading a blog, I came across the idea of making popsicles with coconut water for a healthy, refreshing summertime treat. And although it sounded like delicious concept, it seemed a little tame to me.
Coincidentally I had also seen something intriguing on Pinterest — pineapple chunks soaked in coconut rum, a boozy, refreshing summertime treat.
Aha, I thought, now we’re getting somewhere!
I started by mincing the pineapple into very small cubes, which I let soak in Malibu rum for two hours. I also grabbed a can of coconut water with pulp and a can of coconut milk, just for extra oomph. I wanted the popsicles to be relatively guilt-free so I only used a small swirl of the milk in each one.
In case you’re counting, that leaves more calories for booze!
Fill the popsicle molds about a quarter of the way with the rum-soaked fruit, draining excess rum off (into your glass!). You don’t want it too boozy or it won’t freeze. Next pour in a spoonful or two of coconut milk. Top with coconut water. Freeze until solid. Enjoy!
