These creamy, dreamy aloha pops are GREAT for kids (and adults too) & are a much better alternative to the sugar-laden frozen treats that you buy inside the grocery store. Plus, they're simple - great for busy moms (or dads) to throw together in a pinch!
With only 5 ingredients in this recipe, you won't have to overhaul the grocery store in order to make it. You may even have everything you need on hand in your pantry!
A tip for those who may have a hard time finding the cream of coconut. Most stores keep it in the alcoholic beverage section.
This recipe was created by me for the first ever social media driven television show, Life Around Home (which is hosted by the lovely Marie Louise Ludwig who you may know from QVC), as part of my weekly healthy/lightened up recipe submissions. Come on over & engage yourself within the community!
*makes about 1 dozen ice pops, depending on the size of your popsicle molds
1.5 cups milk
1/2 cup cream of coconut
1 (16oz) package frozen tropical fruit blend, partially thawed
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a medium sized bowl, mix the brown sugar & tropical fruit blend. Toss to combine; set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, cream of coconut, & vanilla extract. Spoon the brown sugar/fruit mixture evenly between about 1 dozen ice pop molds. Pour the milk mixture evenly on top. Put your popsicle sticks in, & freeze until set - about 6-8 hours.
