For the Love of Popsicles
I've made no secret of my love of popsicles, particularly my fondness for Boozy Popsicles. So, when a sweet blogging friend, Sarah at Live, Eat, Learn said that she was putting out a book on popsicles and would I like to receive a copy, I didn't hesitate to say yes!
For the Love of Popsicles is filled with such a variety of amazing sounding popsicles! There is literally something for everyone in this book! She has it broken down into categories of Fruity, Creamy, Coffee & Tea, Hidden Veggies, Poptails and even Pupsicles!
I, of course, went immediately to the poptails. There is only one thing I love more than a refreshing cocktail, it's a refreshing cocktail popsicle! With everything from a Amaretto Sour to a Mojito boozy pop, there was so much to choose from. Since I had just bought some pineapple from the store, I settled on the Piña Colada boozy popsicle.
Creamy Boozy Popsicles
I've made a lot of popsicles and frozen desserts and I am here to tell you that the texture on these boozy ice pops is perfect! It is so creamy straight out of the freezer. She uses a little bit more alcohol than I usually use in my frozen boozy desserts and I am bumping up my amount to hers!
You also get a little bit of texture from the pineapple, so it's not just creamy, there is some substance to each delicious bite. Mr. Sidewalk Shoes made several comments about the texture, so you know it was amazing!
How to Make Piña Colada Popsicles
Making these rum popsicles is so easy!
Gather your piña colada ingredients - rum, pineapple, canned coconut milk, and sugar.
Note - the recipe called for coconut rum, I thought we had some, but I couldn't find it, so I just used regular rum. When Mr. Sidewalk Shoes came home from work, I asked him about it and he went straight to the liquor shelf and found it! Please realize that this is an extremely rare occurrence, 99.9% of the time I am finding things for him. Apparently the only thing he keeps tabs on at the house is the liquor.
Place all the ingredients in your favorite blender and process until smooth.
Pour into popsicle molds (my favorite) leaving a little room at the top. Let them freeze for at least 8 hours. To unmold them, you just run them under warm water for a few seconds.
Tips for popsicles - I don't like the plastic sticks and handles that come with the popsicle molds. They probably work great for kids, but I like my popsicles with a wooden stick. So, I freeze them for about 2 hours and then insert the sticks. Works perfectly!
The Best Booze Pops!
These are seriously the best booze pops! Luscious and creamy and bursting with flavor! We will be making these all summer long! I can't wait to try some other popsicles from For the Love of Popsicles! I just have to decide what to make next - the Mudslide or the Bellini or maybe I'll go fruity with the Watermelon Kiwi!
