I hope you really enjoy these – I have heard that the silicone popsicle molds are really the best for getting the popsicles out easily – I plan on buying some soon – another way to do this old school is to pour the popsicle stuff into ice cube trays, cover with saran wrap or foil and then stick in a popsicle stick through the foil so it is supported and freeze… easy peasy!

Yummy Drink Recipes for Summer

Beach Drinks

Some background on how we came across the yummy drink recipes: So while on vacation this year during the first week of July, my family spent time at my In Law’s home. The once lived in Toronto but have retired and sold their house in the city, renovated the cottage, and now live in beautiful Port Elgin Ontario full time.  We have instructions to call this the cottage in perpetuity.

While there this year with my family, in laws and 15 year old niece Sydney, Syd and I decided we needed beach drinks.

And pineapple shaped glasses we found at Walmart for $3.50 (side note – apparently they are at the Dollar store for way less – perfect).

But who doesn’t need pineapple glasses for the beach?

So we came up with a few different recipes (2 appropriate for the 15 year old and one just for the over 19 crowd) – here they are:

Watermelon, Lime and ginger slushy yummy drink

Yummy Drink number 1 ingredients:

4- 6 cups of watermelon cubed (for slushy freeze these first)

juice of 3 limes

1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger grated


Place watermelon and ginger in blender in batches and blend till smooth – pour through strainer and add lime juice, stir and serve with more crushed ice or ice cubes in super cute pineapple glasses.

*side note – yes I realize that the glasses are pineapple and fruit is watermelon – pretend this is somewhat ironic somehow…


Pineapple coconut milk smoothie yummy drink

Yummy drink recipe number 2 Ingredients:

one pineapple cut into chunks and frozen

2 bananas

2 cans coconut milk (full fat)

1 orange (fresh juice and zest of whole orange)

Place all ingredients into blender and blend till smooth – serve in cute pineapple glasses.

*side note – pineapple glasses more appropriate here.


Yummy Drink for over 19 crowd:

I can coconut water

1-1.5 oz Malibu rum

serve over ice or crushed ice in super cute (yet ironic) pineapple glasses.


Hope you enjoy (and if you drink the one for the over 19 crowd please enjoy responsibly!)
