Refreshing non-alcoholic pina colada ice lollies, so easy to make but guaranteed to get you in the mood for summer!
We’re currently in the middle of our ‘annual heatwave’ here in the UK. Overall we’re not very well equipped for hot weather and boy do we like to moan about it. This year I’m compensating by making lots and lots of these simply refreshing pina colada ice lollies.
We’ve got all the classic flavours associated with the iconic tropical cocktail whizzed up into one delicious frozen lolly.
The ‘secret’ ingredient that brings everything together and gives it that true pina colada je ne sais quoi is a brand new essence from Foodie Flavours. The smell alone immediately transports you to a warm beach, sea lapping at your feet, drinks with tiny umbrellas in them …
Making these pina colada ice lollies non-alcoholic means everyone can enjoy them!
Because no-one should miss out on the wonderfully bright bursts of fruity flavour! And because they’re lollies they’re much easier to make than ice cream, taking literally just a few minutes to whizz up and pour into your ice lolly moulds. The hardest part is always having to wait for them to set before devouring! Sticky fingers, dribbles down the chin, getting the last bit off the lolly stick before it falls in your lap. Isn’t summer wonderful?
I’ve used both fresh pinapple and pineapple juice for these.
The fresh pineapple gives the lollies a bit of ‘body’. I was worried that using just pineapple juice would result in a bland and watery ice lolly. And I wanted these to scream SUMMER!
If you’ve not yet heard of/used Foodie Flavours and their wonderful range of natural essences and flavourings I hand on heart recommend them. They’re perfect for adding a real *KAPOW* of flavour without altering the structure of the recipe. Just a few drops is all that’s needed to really accentuate your chosen flavour. Like these pina colada ice lollies – alcohol doesn’t freeze well so adding Foodie Flavours not only makes these lollies non-alcoholic but it also gives you that wonderful cocktail flavour without ruining the recipe by adding too much rum!
Oh and by the way, I can only apologise for a certain ear worm you’re probably stuck with now 😉

Pina Colada Ice Lollies
prep: 10 mins / cook: 0 mins / inactive: 0 mins / total: 10 mins / quantity: 6 lollies
- 2 cups (330g) fresh or frozen pineapple
- 1/3 cup (80ml) pinapple juice
- 1/2 cup (140g) coconut yoghurt
- 1 tblsp maple or agave syrup
- 25 drops Foodie Flavours Pina Colada
Blender – I used this Nutribullet
- Simply put everything in a blender and whizz until smooth and creamy
- I usually decant into a jug with a spout as it's much easier to pour into the smallish openings of the lolly moulds
- Fill each lolly mould completely and insert the stick
- Freeze at least several hours or preferably overnight - any sooner and I've found it can be a bit of a challenge to remove the lolly from the mould intact!
- Simply run the mould under hot water for just a few seconds to release the lolly
