Do you like piña coladas and gettin’ caught in the rain?
Yes?! Okay, well you’re on your own with the rain, but we’ve got you covered for piña coladas… piña colada pops that is! There is nothing better than an ice cold popsicle on a hot summer afternoon… unless of course that popsicle also happens to taste like a piña colada and its loaded with nutrients that make your body healthy and happy!

Healthy Pina Colada popsicles

Our favorite thing about these pops (besides the fact that they are tasty and healthy), is that our kids love them too! And you know we love feeling good about the treats we’re giving our kids. So when the kids (and you!) come back for seconds, you can say yes without the guilt.

Description

Thanks to the nutrients found in pineapple and coconut, this pina colada popsicle recipe can hardly be categorized as a treat! Coconut is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. And pineapple is chock full of Vitamin C.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 1/2 cups pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut (unsweetened)

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Pour into a popsicle mold or small disposable cups.
  3. Insert popsicle sticks.
  4. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.

Notes

Tip: If you’re ready to take your popsicle making to the next level, try Zoku Classic Pops popsicle molds. And don’t forget to dip the molds in warm water for easier removal of pops from the mold.

    I made these for a Cinco de Mayo pool party and they were a hit! I even added a little splash of booze— hahah!

  2. Nancy Kirkland says:

    When you call for Coconut milk is it canned, or liquid, like Silk…Almond Breeze?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Nancy,

      When we call for coconut milk, you can actually reach for any you prefer. To make these extra creamy, I love reaching for full-fat canned coconut milk. It has less processing + makes these popsicles so creamy!

    Where did you get your Popsicle forms? 🙂 I’ve got to make some of these!

  4. Sandra M Levine says:

    What is the calorie count for 1 popsicle?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Sandra,

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    Hi there! I’m loving your recipes (bought the book too!). As soon as I saw this recipe, I bought the Amazon molds. So excited!!

    I’m curious, why does the pineapple have to be fresh/thawed? Mine is frozen, and don’t feel like taking the extra step if I don’t have to!

    Thanks!!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Cathy,

      We’re so excited to have you blendin’ with us + great question! We suggest using fresh or thawed pineapple, as it creates a thinner smoothie, making it easier to pour into your molds!

      Cheers!

  6. You’ve got me hooked on my breakfast smoothies, now with the heat of summer on the way I’ve got to try these, they sounds so good

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Toni,

      Ohhh…this is the perfect summer recipe! Especially, for enjoying poolside during the summer heat!

      🙂

  7. Alex says:

    This looks really amazing i will sure try it out. Thank you for this 😀

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Alex,

      It’s pretty amazing if you ask us! Thanks for blendin’ with us!

      Cheers!

  8. HonestTexan says:

    How many pops does this recipe make? Thank you.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi HonestTexan,

      Thanks for reaching out! It depends on your mold, but each recipe makes two servings, that will fill approximately 2-4 popsicles!

  9. Yum! They sound and looks so delish!

  10. Jackie says:

    My family and friends got together at a lake house this weekend, and I made these for all of the kiddos (ages ranged from 2-5). They devoured them! My fellow mommy friends were so surprised that they were filled with Spinach and yet tasted so yummy. These will definitely be a regular summer time treat.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Jackie,

      We love hearing that! Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know. We hope you had a wonderful weekend!

      Cheers 🙂
