Blackberry Peach Colada Popsicles

Blackberry Peach Colada Popsicles

I know, I know.  It’s Winter and it’s cold…not really popsicle time of year.  What am I doing making popsicles???  We had one day of gorgeous sun and the temperature got into the low 70′s and the fever hit me.  Spring fever I guess.  I’m not normally one swayed a lot by the seasons.  I don’t go bananas making specific dishes for every holiday or national event day that comes around…not normally.  Like National Pop Tart Day or World Spaghetti Day something.  A lot of other people really enjoy it and have fun but me…not so much.  I find it slightly stressful.  At least for now anyway.  Although I did get sucked into National Pasta Month last year and made this Kitchen Sink Pasta Salad which I loved.  I do however love popsicles and ice cream so I’m ready!  For that reason I was driven to make these Blackberry Peach Colada Popsicles.

I had blackberries and when I was at the store recently I was surprised seeing peaches so I grabbed some.  It turned out they weren’t that great.  That’s the way of it generally and I knew it was a risk but I made it work.  Sugar can fix just about anything in my mind although I would suggest if you’re making these and the peaches are iffy, buy the frozen ones.  Frozen peaches much better than a bad, flavorless fresh peach.

I knew I wanted a few intense colors.  What better way to showcase an intense color than putting it next to a light, delicate color?  I make a blackberry and peach crumble in the summer and I love piña colada flavored anything so I knew the flavor and color combination would be great!

I also recently bought these fun popsicle molds that you can find in my Amazon shop.  None of them are over $20 and most are less than $10.  I do get a tiny percentage if you order from my shop although it won’t cost you any more.  I just love that you can get the things that you see on the blog if you like.  These are the exact molds I used for this post.  I like the swirly ones the best! :)  I wanted several shapes and sizes and these were the best I found for such a great price.  You can also use small, paper dixie cups and then peel the paper back when ready to serve.

I used fresh coconut and pineapple because I wanted the fruit chunks in the piña colada flavored layer but there are a few things about that.  Next time I won’t use the fresh coconut milk or the flesh I don’t think.  I liked the flesh being in the popsicle but my daughter didn’t so much and it didn’t turn out to be worth the effort.  I would use fresh pineapple again next time.  I almost always have pineapples so it wasn’t a stretch.  You could easily use canned pineapple if you’d like though.

The blackberries and peaches were fresh and I just pureed them with sugar.  SO simple.

As you can see, some of the popsicles were layered.  I poured one flavor on the bottom and let them freeze for an hour so that the lines and flavors stayed separated but others I put them all together.  I like both ways but of course putting them in all at once is quicker and easier.

Yield: 36-38 popsicles

Blackberry Peach Colada Popsicles

Ingredients

    For the colada layer:
  • 1/2 cup cream of coconut
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 cup simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar brought to a boil and cooled)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup coconut flesh or flaked coconut (optional)
  • For the peach layer:
  • 6 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced or 2-3 cups frozen peach slices
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • For the blackberry layer:
  • 2 (12 ounce) containers fresh blackberries or frozen

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, pulse pineapple and coconut (if using) until desired smoothness.
  2. Stir in cream of coconut, coconut milk, simple syrup and heavy cream. Set aside.
  3. Pulse peaches with 2-3 tablespoons sugar, remove and do the same for the blackberries keeping all the layers separate.
  4. If making popsicles with defined layers, add one flavor to the molds (I like to alternate for variety) and freeze for one hour.
  5. Gently add the second layer and put the stick in place and repeat by freezing for another hour.
  6. Add the last and final layer and freeze for 3 hours or over night.
  7. If you're not concerned with defined layers and like the mingled look add one flavor to the bottom and gently spoon the other layers on either side.
  8. One thing to note, the pineapple coconut layer is thinner therefore lighter than the others so if it's placed on the bottom the other flavors will combine by floating down a bit.
  9. Freeze for 1 hour, remove and add the sticks.
  10. Return to the freezer and allow to freeze for 3 hours or overnight.

    • Thank you!! They were so good!

  1. I saved this one. They look very good, but we would have to substitute some ingredients. I had no idea that you had an Amazon shop. I need to know more about that.

    • Well the good thing is that you could substitute really anything you wanted. Maybe not apples pr oranges but you get my point. :) The Amazon shop is now in my sidebar. I was talking about so many simple and cheap tools I use with my recipes that I thought it would be nice to offer a quick way to get those if someone wanted.

  2. These look Amazing. I remember as a kid you would take a whole quart of my frozen peaches or strawberries and peel the zip-loc away and eat an entire quart like a giant popsicle. I wasn’t as creative as you are but I did make frozen canned pineapple pops and banana chocolate and nut pops on occasion. I will have to try these when the fresh blackberries are ready around my yard.

    • I remember that well! You also used to make us fresh frozen pineapple sticks that I loved and frozen cupcakes which seems strange now but I loved to grab one on my way outside to play.

    • I know!! We haven’t even had that harsh a Winter but I’m ready for Spring. I definitely a warm weather girl.

  3. These look AMAZING!!! I know my mini me would love them and he would absolutely love helping me make them. I wish I had some right now for his sore throat!!!! I love the idea of using fresh fruit and knocking out all those preservatives and sugarsicles!! Thanks for the recipe!! This is on the “must make list” :))

    • They were really good. I got a few complaints because one of my offspring doesn’t like coconut so the bits turned her off a bit so next time I’ll use different flavors but that’s the fun of it. You can do almost anything and they’re still delicious. And yes, perfect for sore throats and babies with fever.:(

  4. These are gorgeous!! And I love the popsicle molds. You did a really great job on these. Wish I could lick them through my screen!

    • Thank you!!! Can’t wait to make another batch!

    • Thanks Gina! Hope you like them. Stop back by and let me know what you think? :)

  5. My 6-year-old made me pin these popsicles on his board, but then I couldn’t resist pinning your summer rolls with shrimp and avocado. Your food pics are IN-CRED-I-BLE! Seriously, gorgeous and drool-inducing!

    • Thank you so much! What a great compliment! The Summer Rolls are my most popular recipe.
