Summer time treats, for me, always include popsicles. They are easy to make and handy to have in the freezer for a cool taste on a hot day. I'm hoping for many hot days this summer. These are mild in flavour, full of pineapple, coconut milk and banana. A dash of rum or rum flavouring wouldn't come amiss for more of the piña colada flavour, but you might want to leave it out if these are intended for children.
My popsicle molds are old Tupperware ones - they've been around for at least 35, maybe 40 years - they first belonged to my mother. I've lost a few of the handles, but a wooden popsicle stick fits into the slot quite nicely.
Almost Piña Colada Popsicles

1 can (400 ml) coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tablespoon light rum OR 1 tsp rum extract
Whir everything together in a blender. Pour into molds. Freeze. Enjoy on a hot summer day!
