Mai Tai Tiki Popscicles (Adult Version)

With summer upon us, and especially with the heat here in Florida, a refreshing homemade popscicle sure makes for a great snack.    I made these for Father's Day and the Adults loved them.   I altered the original recipe somewhat to accomodate what I had on hand and they came out great!  This recipe can certainly be done without the liquor in it and would taste just as delicious.  Keep in mind, too much liquor in these popscicles will not allow the liquid to freeze so it's best to just stick with the bare minimum on these.  The picture that I took of them, didn't actually turn out with my cheesy camera, so I took used the stock photo of them.  They came out really cute!!!


Coconut Colada Layer

1 container Fat Free piƱa colada or Key lime pie yogurt
1/4 cup canned coconut milk, well stirred (not cream of coconut)
1 teaspoon coconut rum

Mango Mai Tai Layer

1 cup frozen mango cubed
3 tablespoons sugar
¾ cup mango nectar, chilled
4 tablespoons coconut rum
1 tablespoon Orange Liquor
1 tablespoon Amaretto liquor
1  tablespoons fresh lime juice

Step One

In small bowl, beat coconut colada layer ingredients with whisk until smooth. Divide mixture among eight 3-oz paper cups. Cover with foil; insert craft stick (flat wooden stick with round ends) through foil into center of pop. Freeze 2 to 3 hours or until frozen.

Step Two

Meanwhile, in blender, place mango mai tai layer ingredients. Cover; blend on medium speed about 45 seconds, stopping frequently to scrape sides, until smooth. Cover and refrigerate while waiting for first layer to freeze.

Step Three

When first layer is frozen, remove foil from pops. Pour mango mixture over frozen layer. Return foil to pops to help support sticks. Freeze about 8 hours or until frozen before serving. Store remaining pops covered in freezer.
