Push-ups - all Grown Up!

Alright people, we all know that every once in awhile, you just gotta have a drink. At least I know I do! And with my girl Ginny coming to visit this past weekend, I wanted something fun and refreshing for us to share out on my new deck.

Browsing around Tastespotting, I found this great idea for Pina Colada Popsicles . All I could think of was that I bought a set of push-up tubes to make individual little ice creams for my Little Man this summer, but I never got around to using them. Well, I guess you can call me "mother of the year" because I filled them up with a frosty adult beverage for me and Ginny instead!

Now, I did have to change the recipe, so click on the link if you want the original, but Ginny loooooooathes coconut. So I substituted some items and made Fuzzy Navel pops instead! Check out these bad boys!Fuzzy Navel-sicles

3 cups chopped fresh peaches
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup vodka
3 T granulated sugar
1/3 cup orange juice concentrate
ice pop molds

Puree all ingredients in a blender until very smooth. Pour into molds- leaving about 1/2 inch at the top for expansion. (**note: I left headspace on mine, but didn't need to, I could have filled them up) Freeze for 24 hours To remove the pops from the molds leave them out for about a minute- or if in a hurry run them under hot water for 20-30 seconds. (**note: Since i had the pus-up style molds, I didn't need to do anything at all...just push up and enjoy!

I love those!! Wish I could have one. I bought some ice pop molds from a tupperware party and had high hopes for them this summer. I haven't made anything yet. I saw Ingrid Hoffman take a lime popsicle, dip it in tequilla and then some salt. She called it a margarita popsicle. It's so much fun to make an adult popsicle like that ; )
