My healthy dragon fruit pina colada popsicles are non-alcoholic, and are tropical fun and festive for the whole family. Also strong anti-inflammatories, energy producers and they curb hunger! A nutritious tropical vacation on a stick. Make them with rum or without!
Slice a dragon fruit into small sections and set aside.The coconut milk cans do not have to be refrigerated as with some coconut milk recipes. That's because you don't want the cream to separate, you will be using the entire can.
Blend pineapple juice, lemon juice, contents of both coconut milk cans until smooth. Taste-test at this point. If you want it sweeter, add 1/4 cup more pineapple juice or even 2 tbsp maple syrup. Just FYI, you need about 3 1/3 cups of mixture to fill a 10-popsicle mold.If using Rum, add it now, otherwise leave it off to keep the popsicles non-alcoholic.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds; press in slices of pitaya onto the sides of each pop mold.
Freeze 1 hour, then press popsicle sticks into the pops.
Remove to serve after 8 hours of freezing. If you added rum, you might have to wait longer for the popsicle to be frozen enough to eat; and remember, alcohol will always make a popsicle less frozen.Enjoy your tropical vacay!! And don't forget to wear a straw hat and dance!! hahaha...
