Coconut Rumsicles

Lately I’ve been obsessed with making popsicles.  It first started after I saw this amazing recipe from Joy the Baker, and then there was this exchange on twitter:

Yes, I was tipped off to the fact that there was such a thing as Pimm’s Cup Popsicles(!) and immediately I started thinking of other booze-filled frozen treats, such as coconut rumsicles.

I kept this recipe pretty basic since it was my first foray into popsicle making thanks to these popsicle molds from Amazon (which work great btw) and just used three ingredients.  The rumsicles are definitely more “icy” than creamy, so if you are looking for a creamier frozen treat, I recommend adding some coconut cream as well.

These frozen treats are also made with dairy free chocolate chips, so they are perfect for anyone on a dairy-free or vegan diet as well.  The rum definitely adds a nice burst of flavor, but if rum isn’t your thing, feel free to omit.

I get the feeling that booze-filled frozen treats may become a summer trend in our house.
