Boozy popsicles made with coconut milk and Malibu rum by blogger Stephanie Ziajka on Diary of a Debutante

Now that we’ve moved into our new home, Kyle and I finally have a backyard for entertaining, and we’re taking advantage of it to the fullest. It’s the perfect space, aside from the fact that we don’t have a pool. We’re from Florida, where everyone has a pool, so it’s a bit of an adjustment. It’s been freakishly hot in Columbia this weekend, so instead of heading to a crowded community pool, I thought it’d be fun to make some boozy popsicles with Malibu Rum and hang out on our patio with some friends instead! I love coconuts– and I love lime, so I combined all three (coconuts, lime, and rum) to make these creamy coconut milk popsicles. They’re ultra refreshing and can be made with or without the rum (for kids). Keep reading for the full recipe and printable recipe card!

Here’s everything you’ll need to make these absolutely delish boozy coconut milk popsicles:

  • Popsicles molds (minimum of 6)
  • 1.5 cans full-fat coconut milk (equivalent to 20 ounces of coconut milk)
  • 1 cup limeade
  • 1 cup Malibu Rum (tip: give your popsicles an extra lime twist with Malibu Lime!)
  • 4 tsp lime zest (equivalent to the zest of 2 limes)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp honey

Boozy Coconut Lime Popsicles

First thing’s first– if you’re wondering “Does Malibu rum freeze?”, the answer is yes. Yes, it does. Assuming you find the right mixer (has to be something thicker like pureed frozen fruit or, in our case, coconut milk), wine and liquor will freeze! If these coconut milk popsicles aren’t enough to prove it to you, check out these boozy bellini popsicles (made with champagne) instead!

Anyways, moving on. To start, combine the coconut milk, limeade, rum, lime zest, maple syrup, and honey in a blender until fully mixed. Like any coconut milk popsicles, you’ll know the mixture is blended enough when it looks like melted ice cream.

Next, pour the mixture into 6-8 popsicles molds (I used these). Freeze for a minimum of 6 hours, although overnight is best! Once they’re fully frozen, carefully remove from molds. If you have trouble getting the popsicles out, dip the tip of each mold in warm water for a few seconds and try again. It works like a charm and won’t damage the popsicles!

Also, just a tip– if you don’t have plastic popsicle tops (or if you prefer to use regular natural wood popsicle sticks for aesthetic reasons), you can cover the molds with tin foil, cut a thin slice in the center, and use it to keep the popsicle sticks upright and in place. Another solution is to freeze the molds (without sticks) for an hour and then insert the stick once the mixture’s hardened a bit.

Finally, serve and enjoy responsibly! I like to serve mine over ice (to keep them cool) or upside down in cocktail glasses to avoid sticky melted messes.

All popsicles aside, Malibu rum makes an amazing summer cocktail. It’s basically sunshine in a bottle, which explains why it’s the world’s best-selling coconut-flavored Caribbean rum. I’m partial to daiquiris and skinny peach mojitos, although I’ll never turn down anything frozen. If you’re looking for something new to try, look for Malibu Lime at your local liquor store. It’s bold and has a juicy taste with a fresh lime finish that your guests will love!
