Pina Colada Ice Cream Popsicles

So I’m desperately trying to write a post currently but all I can hear in my feeble little brain is:

If you like Pina Coladas,

and getting caught in the rain.

Then I realized that was all that I knew and that I didn’t know the rest of the lyrics, so for the last 20 minutes I have been reading them. No, Cara! You are supposed to be writing a post….but I cannot stop. I start to type something and the only thing that I see on my screen is:

If you like Pina Coladas…

So now the damn song is playing in the background (yes, inevitably I had to turn it on YouTube and let it be my background noise as I sing along) and I have the sinking feeling in my gut that I won’t be able to stop singing this song for the rest of the day…

So for all of you who like making love at midnight, I have 2 fun Pina Colada recipes just for you!

No-Fuss Pina Colada Ice Cream Recipe

  • 3/4 c. non-dairy ice cream
  • 1/3 c. coconut milk (from the can)
  • 1/3 c. pineapple chunks

  1. What would you recommend as a pineapple sub (I’m allergic to pineapple)? Maybe mango?

    • Mango is a great idea!

  2. These look fun and yummy. I’m catching up on my blog reading. I’ve been very absentee the past few months with new baby.

    • Congrats on the new arrival, Jenny! xoxo

  3. I think I vote your blog the most fun food blog! Loving your frozen cocktail pops!

    • You are seriously making me blush with such kind words, Karista–THANK YOU SO MUCH for this comment. I needed a smile like this today 🙂 xo

      July 29, 2012
  4. Hahha now all I can think about is this song and for the record i too only know the first two lines – mmmmmthos popsivles, so so so Amazing – i really need to invest in soe popsicle molds and stop just browsing through the hundreds on amazon!

    July 27, 2012
  5. Wow these look gorgeous. Now that the weather is nice here in the UK I’m really in the mood for these. I adore pineapple with coconut. I usually make my daily smoothie (Green Thickie) and just pour some into a mould.

    Thank you

    July 27, 2012
    • Green Thickie! May I just say how much I adore that name??? I am going to call my smoothies that from now on. This would be SO GOOD as a green thickie! Mmmmm…

      July 27, 2012
  6. that is my summer anthem!! haha those look seriously delicious! i love umbrellas too:)

    July 26, 2012
    • Then this post is just for YOU, friend. xo

      July 27, 2012
  7. i love that song!! if you like pina coladas..and getting caught in the rain..if your not into yoga..and you have half a brain..IF YOU LIKE MAKING LOVE AT MIDNIGHT… ahh..

    ever see the movie “the sweetest thing”? they sing the song in the movie and it’s hilarious!

    i’m not one who partakes in alcoholic beverages, but that ice cream looks fantastical.

    July 26, 2012
    • I never knew the lyric about yoga. HAHA. That made me laugh when I looked it up.
      Good thing you can easily remove the adult liquid and still get an equally delicious ice cream 🙂 xo

      July 27, 2012
  8. I DON’T even like pina coladas! But I liked your Bloody Mary popsicles so much lately that I am tempted to try these as well. As someone noted above, it was quite enjoyable to shoo the kids away from them–why should they have all the fun? (We did make an apple juice alternative, lest you think I’m too mean.) 🙂

    July 26, 2012
    • ha! I would never think that you are too mean, though that was very thoughtful to do the kid-friendly pops. I don’t even think I would do that 🙂 ha

    Ooh, I love that your made ‘grown up’ popsicles! Imagine me telling the children, “no darling I’m afraid you cannot have one of these. They are only for grown ups!” Love it! 😉
    So obviously I’ll have to make some with juice too.
    Thanks Cara!

    July 25, 2012
    • Finally, something for the adults right?! Kids have all the fun. Gesh 😉

      July 27, 2012
  10. Haha those are the only words I know too- but they are the most important ones so who cares??

    I want those popsicles so badly! Whyyyy don’t I have popsicle molds. Why Cara??

    I loved this post- just so fun 🙂

    July 25, 2012
    • You make a very good point! 😉 And you don’t have popsicle molds because you haven’t bought any so rectify the situation and get yourself some…now!

      July 27, 2012
  11. Haha – oh no! Now it’s stuck in my head…

    A pina colada sounds perfect right now, and the addition of pomegranate is genius!

    July 25, 2012
    • You cannot escape this song, can you? I mean, I am not even reading my post but am already singing it in my head just because I know what everyone is referencing. Aaaaaahhhh!

    Def did not stick my finger in this one. Only a huge spoon. BOOM.

    July 25, 2012
    • That’s the ONLY thing you didn’t sample with your finger then. BOOM.

      July 27, 2012
  13. Wow Cara these look amazingly beautiful and totally refreshing! I had a super yummy pina colada smoothie over the weekend and have been dreaming of those flavors ever since, I immediately thought of a vegan ice cream. Great minds 🙂

    July 25, 2012
    • Mmmmmmm….Pina colada smoothie. Goodness Beth, you have me drooling at the thought of it!

      July 27, 2012
  14. Ha. Ha. These sound delish. And hopefully following your muse purged the song from your mind. Two other songs that frequently pass through and get caught in my head…Midnight at the Oasis (I’m pretty sure there is no song more annoying) and Afternoon Delight. Could you come up with some recipes for those? Ha.Ha.Ha.

    July 25, 2012
    • Midnight at the Oasis makes me think of the movie “Waiting for Guffman” (one of my all-time faves). I think I just might have to make a special treat in its honor 🙂

      July 27, 2012
  15. i knew this was coming sometime soon. i dont know what song that is. i love those umbrellas! me=sucker for cute lil things
    alas, i am allergic to pineapple. i think i will just add some mango to this.

    July 25, 2012
    • Oooohhhh mango just might be a better choice, Richa! And consider yourself lucky for not knowing this song. Do yourself a favor and *don’t* look it up either… xo

    You are evil. I have all these ingredients in my house and I swore no more ice cream (for a few days, anyhow). Lucky for me I don’t have popsicle molds nor ice cream cones. I suppose that means I’ll just have to eat it directly out of the tub. Shame. You may be the evil poster child for Vegan Ice Creamage. Yes, that is a word. I just made it up!
    P.S. Look for an email Senorita.

    July 25, 2012
    • Just call me Evil Creamage.

  18. Mmmm! I DO like pina coladas! 🙂 *song stuck in my head*

    Love everything about these popsicles! YUM. Pineapple, coconut, rum…what’s not to love!? 🙂

    July 25, 2012
    • What’s not to love? The fact that I am not eating one right now, that’s what 🙂 xo

      July 25, 2012
  19. I bet these would be good virgin ice creams, too. Chastity Belt Coladas. And yeah, thanks for the earworm. I may have to smother it with rum…

    July 25, 2012
    • HAHA! Yes, Chastity Belt Coladas anyone?

      July 25, 2012
  20. …getting caught in the rain

    I love that song. cheesy. okay, I always say I love that song, then I think about what it really means and pfff. then I don’t like it so much, even if it has a “good” outcome. pffff.

    I am all about the ice cream and pops lately, so this I do love. you gave me a much needed smile this morning. ❤

    July 25, 2012
    • YOU MADE IT! No spamville for you, today–hooray! Glad you have a smile this morning–it’s a good one 😉

      July 25, 2012
