Piña Colada Popsicles

Piña Colada Popsicles

    A few weeks ago, my husband and I had the opportunity to go away for the weekend without the kids for the first time in over ten years.  Although we really missed our boys while we were away, having this time together made us realize how important it is to set time aside whenever possible to bond as a couple.  

Piña Colada Popsicles

    Since we can’t always get away, I started thinking about ways we could do this right at home. This doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy some adult treats after the kids go to bed.  It’s summer vacation here in New York City so what better way to cool off after a long, hot day than by enjoying some Piña Colada popsicles.  These are strictly for adults as the recipe does include rum.


This recipe will make 12 piña colada pops:


2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups cream of coconut
1/4 cup rum (or coconut rum)
Optional- maraschino cherries


1. In a large pitcher, add the pineapple juice, cream of coconut and rum. Stir to mix well.
2. If using the cherries, add 2-3 to each mold.
3. Pour the piña colada mixture into each mold, up to the fill line.
4. Insert the sticks/top inside each mold and freeze overnight.
5. ENJOY!!

    If you prefer the non-alcoholic variety of these popsicles, all you have to do is omit the rum from the recipe.  They are delicious either way and you can still spend some romantic time with your partner enjoying these delicious treats.

    After all, what really matters is having that special time to connect with one another away from all of the stresses and responsibilities of raising a family.  You’ll be glad you made that time for each other.  

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of the ways that you spend romantic time with your significant other?

  1. That’s a tough question to answer. We are definitely working on this. We’ve been married for 39 years and we go through ups and downs in this area.

  2. Piña Colada you say? Including rum you say? In Popsicle form you say? I’m so in. Love this idea. Proper adult only pops.

  3. Wow! I would have never thought of doing this! It is so creative and fun. Specially for the summer, these popsicles must be the perfect snack! I am so trying them out!

  4. These are so pretty and colorful! How fun. Thanks for the idea to make with my ten year old stepdaughter 🙂 ! As for romantic times, my husband and I go big on “alone trips” but sometimes enjoying some iced tea or an adult beverage on our deck looking over our land and watching the deer feed is just as wonderful.

  5. Somehow I can see myself floating in the pool eating one of these popsicles! They look delicious and I imagine they can be tweaked to taste like your favorite fruity drink!

  6. Grown-up popsicles, yes please. I can’t wait to try these out. I love anything with pineapple and coconut.

  7. I had a couple piña coladas last week and it made me feel like I was on a tropical vacation. I need to recreate this in a popsicle. Awesome idea.

  8. What a delicious and fun combination. We don’t drink in our house, so we would leave out the rum and add something else instead.

  9. Oh my goodness, I love this! We too have a little one and rarely get out the door without her but we have been working on reviving the romance in our lives. Sometimes when she has a sleepover at grandma’s we stay home for a nice dinner and movies. These popsicles would be the perfect end to a great night. Thank you for sharing your idea and recipe!

  10. This is the best idea ever! I’m making these for a pool party that I’m going to this weekend and they will be a huge hit for the hosts. Excited!

  11. What a refreshing treat. I’m sure they would taste just as good if I left out the rum. Right?

  12. These look delicious- a must make this week as we are heading into a heat wave! I hear NYC is getting hit too – I’m in NH so a bit cooler but not by too much! Thanks for sharing!

  13. This is perfect for parties or when you have your girlfriends over! Definitely something that you have to keep from the kids! It’s quite easy to do as well!

  14. That was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be. At first I thought you were going to use the actual pineapple!

  15. These look really yummy. I love Piña Colada drinks so why not popsicles… 😉

  16. Piña Coladas always remind me of my time in Mexico. These are such a fun summer twist on the classic cocktail.

  17. When we were traveling full-time with the kids, romantic time was almost impossible. Now that we are moving into a house, I am hoping to find more special time. We like to sit outside by a fire and talk with a drink. These are a great start to get us back on track!

  18. Spike these with a little alcohol?! lol!

  19. Reesa Lewandowski says

    Oh! My kind of ice pop! These would be perfect for our next BBQ! Thank you!

  20. Robin Rue says

    These look like such a great idea. We love popsicles here at home and these look amazing.

  21. Krystle Cook says

    I love these adult popsicles. So much fun to end an evening with.

  22. Yay on your first couple-time after 10 years 🙂 And you bet I will have my popsicles with alcohol please lol! And to answer your question, we try to do date night once a month and a vacation once a year 🙂 We don’t have kids but life still gets in the way so it’s still important to forget all that once in a while you know?

  23. Oh these are so fun. I love those flavors. I’d love to prepare a whole bunch of these for a party.

  24. Neely (@Neelykins) says

    I just showed my husband and his face literally lit up!!! Clearly I have to make them now

  25. These look so refreshing and colorful. How perfect for these really hot days!

  26. Yum what a cool refreshing treat these would be! Its so hot out I am dying to try what ever I can to help ease that a little bit… guess I’ll have to wait for baby to be born to indulge in some of these!

  27. This is certainly a good treat to beat the New York City heat. Thanks for sharing your Popsicle recipe

  28. I am doing these this weekend!! They look so good and piña colada is one of my all time favorite drinks! It makes me feel like I’m on vacation!

  29. You got me at piña colada, yummy combination and perfect for popsicles. =)

  30. It is important to continue dating your spouse. It is true that the stress of raising a family, running a household and minding the family budget can take a toll on your relationship with your partner. A weekend getaway once in a while would be perfect to rekindle that love you have for the person you married. Furthermore, nothing feels so good as to get back home refreshed and energized!

  31. Nicole Escat says

    These popsicles would be perfect for sunny days.

  32. Yum, Yum, and Yum! These look awesome, and perfect for this weekend. Definitely going to make some of these!

  33. I love the taste of Piña Colada. I can just imagine it in the form of a popsicle. It sounds amazing to me.

  34. When my sister makes Jamaican oxtails, she always makes use Piña Colada. Next time she makes some I’m going to try freezing them like this!

  35. CourtneyLynne says

    Omg can we say yum?!?! I just love Piña coladas! Must give these a try!

  36. Oh yum yum yum! perfect for mommy on hot nights! I need to give these a try asap!

  37. These look great! I have my Betch Champagne Bottle popsicle molds just begging to be used.

  38. These look so pretty and I love all the ingredients listed! My daughter just took a peek over my shoulder and asked, “can we make those super pretty Popsicles?” lol

  39. I do love Piña Coladas. I think I would make 1/2 with rum and 1/2 without–these sound do delicious and would be perfect for the heat wave we have been experiencing in NY!

  40. My hubby and I don’t get a lot of time just the two of us as we have three kids and I work from home, but I do love the thought of adding something extra special to those moments like what you did with these Popsicles.

  41. sheila ressel says

    These sound so yummy! I especially love the addition of the cherries. I will definitely be making these.

  42. Allyson becker says

    OMG! ! This is a party in a popsicle! I need these in my life!
