Hi Bold Bakers!
My homemade piña colada popsicles are an amazing adult treat for those hot summer days—and you just need four ingredients and about five minutes to make them! (Though, you do have to wait for them to freeze. If you simply can’t wait, toss all the ingredients in a blender with some ice… wait, that’s just a regular piña colada, isn’t it?)
If it weren’t for the dark rum, I would argue these popsicles are a completely guilt-free summer dessert. They’re made with all-natural ingredients, and they’re dairy, egg, and gluten-free. And, if you’d prefer to make a non-alcoholic, kid-friendly version, feel free to omit the alcohol.
Nothing will transport you to a cabana by the beach quicker than these popsicles!
What Are Piña Colada Popsicles?
Piña colada popsicles are everything you love about the classic beach-side beverage but in popsicle form! They’re made with the same ingredients, but instead of taking a trip through a blender with ice, they’re poured into popsicle molds.
They have a lovely coconutty, pineappley flavor, with just a hint of lime to help bring out those tropical flavors! They also have a hit of dark rum, which never hurts!

Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Piña Colada Popsicles
- Feel free to leave out the alcohol if you don’t want it or wish to make kid-friendly popsicles!
- If you want your popsicles to be extra creamy and flavorful, use full-fat coconut milk.
- Be sure you don’t skip the lime juice in these popsicles. It really gives it pop and enhances the tropical flavors.
- Use dark or spiced rum to make these popsicles. Typically, white rum is used in piña coladas, but I find dark or spiced rum adds more flavor.
- If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can freeze these popsicles in 3oz/85ml capacity paper cups with wooden popsicle sticks. To keep the sticks in place, wrap the top of the cups in tin foil and poke the sticks through the middle.
