WHAT’S IN THESE ICE LOLLIES?

PINEAPPLE: You can use either fresh or frozen pineapple for this recipe. I like to chop up fresh pineapple that’s perfectly ripe and then freeze it in batches, as I always find the flavour of fresh to be more intense.

COCONUT MILK: The coconut milk is not only essential for that classic piña colada flavour, it also gives these ice lollies a wonderful creamy texture.

RUM: This ingredient is optional (but highly recommended!). You can use either dark or white rum, depending on what you have to hand. The rum not only adds flavour, it also helps to keep the consistency of these ice lollies nice and creamy. Alcohol has a lower freezing point than water, so adding a little to ice cream helps keep the mixture from freezing rock solid!

MAPLE SYRUP: The maple syrup is completely optional, and whether you want to include it in the recipe depends on two things; how naturally sweet the pineapple is, and how much of a sweet tooth you’ve got!

HOW TO MAKE PIÑA COLADA ICE LOLLIES

Add the frozen pineapple, coconut milk and rum to your high speed blender and blitz until it reaches a thick smoothie consistency with no lumps.

Taste test to check if the mixture is sweet enough for your liking. If it needs more sweetness add the maple syrup and blend again for a minute to combine.

Separate the mixture between 6 ice cream moulds and insert a wooden lolly stick into each. These are the pineapple silicone ice cream moulds that I used for some of the ice lollies.

Place in the freezer to set for 4 hours.

    1. Thanks so much Eva 🙂 I usually core the pineapple when I’m cutting it, but you can absolutely blend it up here as well if you’d like to.

    1. Hey!

      Yes you can, but the flavour and texture will be different. I’d possibly hold back on the maple syrup as pineapple juice may be very sweet already.
