Kolchak's mama mentioned the famed song:
If You Like Pina-Coladas
And Walks in The Rain...
It put a smile on my face for this reason. My late father who was a very funny person, was something of a connoisseur of goofy pop music (apologies to anyone who really likes the Pina Colada song). He used to play the record for my friends and I when we are in junior high until we laughed ourselves silly. Enough of memory lane. Here is the recipe for the pina colada pupsicles.
Pina Colada Pupsicles
1 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup low fat plain yogurt
2 ripe bananas, sliced
1/2 cup pineapple juice
3 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
Puree all the ingredients in a blender and pour into the Popsicle molds. This should make four or five large pupsicles.
As you can see from the pictures below the pupsickles where a big hit, my husband was swamped with eager pina colada mad patrons like the most popular bar tender at a beachfront tiki bar.
Rather then leave all the fun to the hounds, I wanted to make some Popsicles for my husband and my self, particularly since I wanted to try my new Tovolo Groovy Icepop Molds. So I made these peaches and cream ones from epicurious and they where delicious.
Peaches and Cream Popsickles
4 ripe peaches, diced, no need to peel1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup greek yogurt, preferably full fat
1 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp Amaretto
Combine all of the ingredients in the blender and our into molds and freeze overnight. If you don't have Amaretto you can easily substitute almond or vanilla extract.
