Pina Colada Popsicles

On top of being super busy, it is now officially Summer here in Portland. You know what that means, it's HOT! Made much worse due the the insane lack of air conditioning in this town. The obvious solution for that? Popsicles!

My husband made these super easy Pina Colada popsicles, and you can too! All you need is:

A blender
one pineapple, peeled and cored
one can (13.5 oz.) coconut milk
extra sweetener, to taste
If you are feeling like a "real" Pina Colada, you can also add a splash of Rum

Mix all your ingredients together in a blender, pour into popsicle molds of your choice and put in the freezer to set up overnight.
If you don't have popsicle molds, this also makes a yummy granita. Simply pour into a shallow container, and periodically scrape the mixture with a fork during the freezing process to create lots of yummy ice crystals!
