Summer is in full swing here in Denver and with it brings visions of picnics in the park, dreamy sunsets and lots of time soaking up the sunshine. It’s our first month here in the new home and I have been taking full advantage of our backyard patio. There’s something kind of wonderful about being able to enjoy our favorite summertime meals and treats outside while still in the comfort of our own home.
Since summer calls for all things refreshing, I figured there was no better time to make some frozen desserts. I whipped up these simple Piña Colada Greek Yogurt Pops the other day and OMG are they delicious! Pineapple and coconut are just one of those magical combinations that practically screams summer vacay. Beach towel and bikini not included but highly recommended to complete the tropical vibes. 😉
If pineapple isn’t your jam, you can always sub it out for your favorite fruit. I have a feeling mango or kiwis would be delicious in this as well. The most important thing is that you choose a really good quality Greek yogurt as your base. FAGE has always been a go to of mine and their Total Plain 2% Greek Yogurt is perfect for these pops! It creates a super creamy texture and pairs so well with the coconut milk.
If you want to try making these simple pina colada Greek yogurt pops at home here’s what you need:
Piña Colada Greek Yogurt Pop Ingredients
1 cup of coconut milk (feel free to use reduced fat)
1 ½ cup of pineapple, fresh or canned
½ cup of FAGE Total Plain 2% Greek Yogurt
¼ cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp honey
Now it’s time for the fun part! Set aside ½ cup of chopped pineapple. Then add remaining ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the chopped pineapple and pour the mixture into the popsicle molds. Freeze overnight and enjoy!
I hope you decide to give these summery desserts a try. If you post them on Instagram be sure to tag me @headstandsandheels so I can see your beautiful Piña Colada Pop concoctions!
