How to make Pina Colada Popsicles

Looking for a piña colada popsicles with alcohol? Jump down here!

First, because we’re making layered ice pops, start by blending only the pineapples and agave until creamy. (If you don’t want to layer, go ahead and blend all of the ingredients together.)

TIP: Feel free to use your favorite sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. I like agave since the flavor isn’t so strong.

Next, begin filling the molds.

Fill each popsicle mold with 1-2 tablespoons of pineapples, then 1-2 tablespoons of coconut milk, until there is about ¼ inch gap at the top.

TIP: If using frozen pineapple, you may need to add ¼ cup of water or coconut milk to make it more flowing.

Again, if not layering, simply fill each popsicle mold with the blended mixture until there is about ¼ inch gap at the top.

Insert the popsicle sticks into the center of each mold and gently tap the popsicle molds on the table a few times to remove any air bubbles. 

Freeze until the ice pops are completely set, or for at least 6 hours.

To remove the popsicles from the mold, run hot water over the outside of the molds and wiggle until you can pull out the ice pops.

This process should take about 15 seconds.

TIP: Store leftovers individually wrapped with cling wrap or parchment paper, then store the popsicles in an airtight container or plastic freezer bag.

They’re now ready to serve and enjoy!

How much alcohol can you put in a popsicle?


There’s no need to be afraid of adding alcohol to your popsicles! In fact, it’s quite easy to do.

The key is to start with a lower percentage of alcohol and slowly increase it until you find the perfect balance for your taste.

Most importantly, don’t forget to have fun and experiment with different flavors.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

1. Use a lower percentage of alcohol if you’re using a high-proof spirit.

2. If you’re using a liqueur, start with a 1:1 ratio of liqueur to liquid.

3. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors. Try combining your favorite spirit with fruit juice, coffee, tea, or even soda.

4. Popsicles are the perfect way to enjoy your favorite cocktail! Simply freeze your favorite mixed drink and enjoy.

5. If you want to get really creative, try making your own popsicle molds out of ice cube trays or silicone molds.

How do you make popsicles creamy not icy?


When it comes to making popsicles, there are a few things that you can do to make sure that they turn out creamy and not icy.

One of the most important things to do is to use ripe fruit. Ripe fruit has more sugar in it, which will help to prevent the popsicles from freezing solid.

Another thing that you can do is to add a little bit of fat to the popsicle mixture. This can be in the form of cream, milk, or even yogurt.

The fat will help to keep the popsicles from getting too hard and will give them a creamier texture.

Finally, make sure that you don’t over-freeze the popsicles. If you leave them in the freezer for too long, they will become icy and hard.

It’s better to take them out of the freezer a few minutes before you plan on eating them so that they are still slightly frozen but not solid.

Is a piña colada served with ice?


A piña colada is a refreshing tropical cocktail made with rum, pineapple juice, and coconut cream. It is typically served chilled, and sometimes with ice.

Whether or not a pina colada should be served with ice is a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer their pina coladas to be icy cold, while others prefer a more moderate temperature.

If you are serving a pina colada with ice, it is important to use fresh, clean ice. Ice that has been sitting in a freezer for a long time can impart a subtle flavor to the drink, which may not be desired.

One way to avoid this is to use ice cubes made from distilled water.

Whether or not to add ice to a pina colada is ultimately up to the drinker. If you prefer your pina colada on the colder side, then by all means, add ice.

However, if you would prefer to enjoy the full flavor of the rum, pineapple, and coconut without the added chill, then skip the ice and enjoy your piña colada as is.

How long does it take popsicles to freeze?

The freezing time for popsicles can vary depending on several factors.

The size and shape of the popsicles, as well as the temperature of the freezer, will affect the freezing process.

On average, it could take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours for popsicles to freeze completely.

However, it is recommended to leave them in the freezer overnight to ensure they are thoroughly frozen.

Patience is key when it comes to enjoying delicious homemade popsicles, so resist the temptation to check on them too frequently as opening the freezer door may cause a delay in the freezing process.

Once they are frozen, you can indulge in a refreshing treat that will surely cool you down on a hot day.
