Piña Colada Dragonfruit Vegan Popsicles
There is nothing like coconut and pineapple to make it feel like a tropical vacation.
Except, perhaps, coconut, pineapple and dragonfruit?😍🌴
And rum, don’t forget the rum. Or leave out the rum to make it a kid’s treat.
And I think popsicles that look fun and festive are best, don’t you?
So I left the beautiful pink rind on the dragonfruit slices even though they aren’t really edible.
So if you make these, you should probably remove the rind.
And if you make these for kids, just leave out the rum!
So here you have a nutritious recipe for the whole family.
Now of course the rum is not nutritious but the pineapple juice adds bromelain, a de-inflammatory, the dragonfruit, or Pitaya, adds antioxidants and the coconut milk adds healthy fats and many nutrients that support heart, muscle and your immune system.
Oh and it being a frosty treat on a stick adds happiness😍
Pina Colada Dragonfruit Vegan Popsicles
8 - 10 Popsicles
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 4 tbsp white rum
- 1 dragonfruit
- 2 cups coconut milk (full fat, you’ll need to open two cans)
Slice a dragonfruit into small sections and set aside.
Blend pineapple juice, rum, coconut milk (use entire can, not just the separated cream) until smooth. Taste-test at this point. If you want it sweeter, add 1/4 cup more pineapple juice or even 2 tbsps maple syrup.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds; press in slices of pitaya.
- Freeze 1 hour, then press popsicle sticks into the pops
- Remove to serve after 8 hours of freezing.
