Why you should make Boozy Mango Pineapple Popsicles
With summertime just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about popsicles. And after I'd impulsively purchased those little popsicle bags from Amazon a while back, I decided I wanted to try them by making alcoholic popsicles.
But so many times that I make popsicles I end up with icy, bricks of frozenness, and it's not cool. Not these guys! Not these guys at all.
What are Boozy Mango Pineapple Popsicles
These popsicles are simply tequila, mangos, pineapples, and citrus juice. That's it!
Thanks to the tequila, you don't end up with frozen bricks of popsicle. And that makes me so happy because oftentimes you need to add a lot of sugar to homemade popsicle recipes to keep them from turning into flavored ice. The alcohol keeps them just the right amount of softness. Oh these are just delightful!
Why this recipe works
Other than the fact that these are crazy delicious, they are crazy easy! You only need four ingredients, and all you have to do is throw them in a blender, pour into popsicle molds, and freeze.
They are a fabulous dessert to make ahead of time and/or to keep in the freezer when you need a boozy treat or have guests. Popsicles can hang out in your freezer until you're ready!
How to Make alcoholic popsicles
This recipe could not be easier. All you do is blend the ingredients together then transfer to popsicle molds, and pop in the freezer.
Alternative prep & cooking methods:
While these are delicious as popsicles, you could honestly just turn these into a smoothie. Add the ingredients to a blender along with 1 cup of ice. Blend and enjoy immediately from a glass instead of pouring into popsicle molds and freezing.
Something to note: they are strong, so you might want to add a bunch (about 2-3 cups) of ice to make this a larger drink without an overwhelming amount of alcohol 🙂
I am officially obsessed with these popsicles. You get a delicious dessert that doubles as a cocktail, and you can make these in a flash. Plus, they have some bonus nutrients thanks to the fruit. Oh and you don't have to worry about the popsicles freezing hard as bricks like other homemade popsicles do.
Seriously y'all... these are quite possibly my favorite dessert to keep in the freezer. Great for guests or for simply adding a little extra to your warm weather desserts.
