Popsicles seem to travel from the freezer to the kids in a never ending stream all summer long. They're fun, inexpensive, and the perfect way to cool off outside. But I'm sure many of you feel the way I do-that the artificial colors and flavors, paired with the empty calories and high sugar content-just aren't worth the popsicles' great appeal.
That's why, whenever possible, I like to create these without refined sugar. I made these piña colada pops when I had a fresh pineapple in the fridge. I added some juice concentrate to sweeten it up, and the coconut milk made it creamy-almost like and ice cream pop.
You'll be seeing more of these kinds of recipes throughout the summer.Kid-Friendly Piña Colada Pops

6 tablespoons 100% white grape juice concentrate
1/4 cup coconut milk
