So I’m desperately trying to write a post currently but all I can hear in my feeble little brain is:
If you like Pina Coladas,
and getting caught in the rain.
Then I realized that was all that I knew and that I didn’t know the rest of the lyrics, so for the last 20 minutes I have been reading them. No, Cara! You are supposed to be writing a post….but I cannot stop. I start to type something and the only thing that I see on my screen is:
If you like Pina Coladas…
So now the damn song is playing in the background (yes, inevitably I had to turn it on YouTube and let it be my background noise as I sing along) and I have the sinking feeling in my gut that I won’t be able to stop singing this song for the rest of the day…
So for all of you who like making love at midnight, I have 2 fun Pina Colada recipes just for you!
No-Fuss Pina Colada Ice Cream Recipe
Gluten, egg, and dairy-free
- 3/4 c. non-dairy ice cream
- 1/3 c. coconut milk (from the can)
- 1/3 c. pineapple chunks
- 2 Tbs rum
- 1/4 c. pomegranate seeds
- Combine all ingredients (except for the seeeds) together in a blender.
- Pour into a container, dump pomegranate seeds in and mix, close with a lid, and freeze for 2 hours or until ice cream sets.
Pina Colada Popsicle Recipe
Gluten, egg, dairy, and refined sugar-free
Makes 6 star pops
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1/2 can crushed pineapple
- 2 Tbs agave
- 1 Tb rum
- pomegranate seeds
- Mix all ingredients except for the seeds together in a blender.
- Pour into popsicle molds. I had enough mix for 6 small, star pop molds.
- Place about 1 tsp pomegranate seeds in each mold.
- Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Place popsicle sticks into. Allow to freeze for another 60 minutes or until set.
These look fun and yummy. I’m catching up on my blog reading. I’ve been very absentee the past few months with new baby.
Congrats on the new arrival, Jenny! xoxo
I think I vote your blog the most fun food blog! Loving your frozen cocktail pops!
You are seriously making me blush with such kind words, Karista–THANK YOU SO MUCH for this comment. I needed a smile like this today 🙂 xo
Hahha now all I can think about is this song and for the record i too only know the first two lines – mmmmmthos popsivles, so so so Amazing – i really need to invest in soe popsicle molds and stop just browsing through the hundreds on amazon!
BUY THEM NOW! 😉
Katherine @ Green Thickies
Wow these look gorgeous. Now that the weather is nice here in the UK I’m really in the mood for these. I adore pineapple with coconut. I usually make my daily smoothie (Green Thickie) and just pour some into a mould.
Green Thickie! May I just say how much I adore that name??? I am going to call my smoothies that from now on. This would be SO GOOD as a green thickie! Mmmmm…
that is my summer anthem!! haha those look seriously delicious! i love umbrellas too:)
Then this post is just for YOU, friend. xo
i love that song!! if you like pina coladas..and getting caught in the rain..if your not into yoga..and you have half a brain..IF YOU LIKE MAKING LOVE AT MIDNIGHT… ahh..
ever see the movie “the sweetest thing”? they sing the song in the movie and it’s hilarious!
i’m not one who partakes in alcoholic beverages, but that ice cream looks fantastical.
I never knew the lyric about yoga. HAHA. That made me laugh when I looked it up.
Good thing you can easily remove the adult liquid and still get an equally delicious ice cream 🙂 xo
I DON’T even like pina coladas! But I liked your Bloody Mary popsicles so much lately that I am tempted to try these as well. As someone noted above, it was quite enjoyable to shoo the kids away from them–why should they have all the fun? (We did make an apple juice alternative, lest you think I’m too mean.) 🙂
ha! I would never think that you are too mean, though that was very thoughtful to do the kid-friendly pops. I don’t even think I would do that 🙂 ha
Ooh, I love that your made ‘grown up’ popsicles! Imagine me telling the children, “no darling I’m afraid you cannot have one of these. They are only for grown ups!” Love it! 😉
So obviously I’ll have to make some with juice too.
Finally, something for the adults right?! Kids have all the fun. Gesh 😉
Gabby @ the veggie nook
Haha those are the only words I know too- but they are the most important ones so who cares??
I want those popsicles so badly! Whyyyy don’t I have popsicle molds. Why Cara??
I loved this post- just so fun 🙂
You make a very good point! 😉 And you don’t have popsicle molds because you haven’t bought any so rectify the situation and get yourself some…now!
Haha – oh no! Now it’s stuck in my head…
A pina colada sounds perfect right now, and the addition of pomegranate is genius!
You cannot escape this song, can you? I mean, I am not even reading my post but am already singing it in my head just because I know what everyone is referencing. Aaaaaahhhh!
Def did not stick my finger in this one. Only a huge spoon. BOOM.
That’s the ONLY thing you didn’t sample with your finger then. BOOM.
Beth @ Tasty Yummies
Wow Cara these look amazingly beautiful and totally refreshing! I had a super yummy pina colada smoothie over the weekend and have been dreaming of those flavors ever since, I immediately thought of a vegan ice cream. Great minds 🙂
Mmmmmmm….Pina colada smoothie. Goodness Beth, you have me drooling at the thought of it!
Ha. Ha. These sound delish. And hopefully following your muse purged the song from your mind. Two other songs that frequently pass through and get caught in my head…Midnight at the Oasis (I’m pretty sure there is no song more annoying) and Afternoon Delight. Could you come up with some recipes for those? Ha.Ha.Ha.
Midnight at the Oasis makes me think of the movie “Waiting for Guffman” (one of my all-time faves). I think I just might have to make a special treat in its honor 🙂
i knew this was coming sometime soon. i dont know what song that is. i love those umbrellas! me=sucker for cute lil things
alas, i am allergic to pineapple. i think i will just add some mango to this.
Oooohhhh mango just might be a better choice, Richa! And consider yourself lucky for not knowing this song. Do yourself a favor and *don’t* look it up either… xo
You are evil. I have all these ingredients in my house and I swore no more ice cream (for a few days, anyhow). Lucky for me I don’t have popsicle molds nor ice cream cones. I suppose that means I’ll just have to eat it directly out of the tub. Shame. You may be the evil poster child for Vegan Ice Creamage. Yes, that is a word. I just made it up!
P.S. Look for an email Senorita.
Just call me Evil Creamage.
Yes yes yes! These have San Diego written all over them.
Mmmm! I DO like pina coladas! 🙂 *song stuck in my head*
Love everything about these popsicles! YUM. Pineapple, coconut, rum…what’s not to love!? 🙂
What’s not to love? The fact that I am not eating one right now, that’s what 🙂 xo
Brooke (Crackers on the Couch)
I bet these would be good virgin ice creams, too. Chastity Belt Coladas. And yeah, thanks for the earworm. I may have to smother it with rum…
HAHA! Yes, Chastity Belt Coladas anyone?
…getting caught in the rain
I love that song. cheesy. okay, I always say I love that song, then I think about what it really means and pfff. then I don’t like it so much, even if it has a “good” outcome. pffff.
I am all about the ice cream and pops lately, so this I do love. you gave me a much needed smile this morning. <3
YOU MADE IT! No spamville for you, today–hooray! Glad you have a smile this morning–it’s a good one 😉
Veggie V! @ Veggie V's Vegan Adventure
And…now I’m singing to myself. Thanks. Thanks for that :-/
I needed company to join me in song!
