I don’t know about you but I feel like everywhere I turn, I’m being told to drink more water. I do live at high altitude, so we need more water for hydration, but never the less it seems I can’t ever drink enough. And when I really want some water to drink, it’s usually past the point of really needing it.
It certainly helps when the weather heats up, because I’m hot on the trail of interesting things to quench my thirst that aren’t just water.
Thirst Quenching Boozy Banana Popsicles
I love making homemade popsicles all summer long, especially loving adult versions with a bit of spirits in them. Mojitos popsicles, Jack and Coke Popsicles, and now, Drunken Monkey Banana Popsicles.
Believe me there is nothing more thirst quenching than an ice cold pop-tail sitting on the porch under an indigo summer’s eve, crickets chirping, the sweltering day relaxing into the cool of the night; chatting with neighbors, family and friends with the feeling there isn’t a care in the world.
Ingredients in Drunken Monkey Banana Popsicles
So I did it! My first summer poptail of this year: Drunken Monkey Banana Popsicles featuring:
- vanilla coconut milk
- Crème de Banana liqueur
- unsweetened coconut ‘fringe’ on the bottom of the popsicle.
These banana popsicles are light, refreshing (I know I’ve over used that word but it’s so true!) and packed with summery, tropical flavors.
You can make the popsicles in any kind of shape or form you like. I prefer to use a stainless steel popsicle mold.
Drunken Monkey Popsicles
- 5 fluid ounces Crème de Banana liqueur
- 20 fluid ounces Vanilla Coconut Milk
- 1 ¼ cups finely shredded unsweetened Coconut
- Pour 1/2 ounce of Crème de Banana liqueur into each popsicle mold. Pour 2 ounces of the vanilla coconut milk into the mold; stir with an extra popsicle stick.
- Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of the coconut on the top of each filled mold. Note: the coconut is very light and will sit on top of the liquid but will freeze in the liquid at the surface.
- Cover the top of the molds and insert wooden sticks. Tip: applying a layer of foil over the top of the mold or lid of the mold allows placement of wooden sticks and they will not float out of the mold.
- Freeze for several hours or overnight. Run hot water for a few seconds on the outside of the mold to release pops!
This looks so good – gotta try it now!
These look divine. I want to try these. Thank you for sharing!
