Recipe Road Test: "The Poptail Manual" Dirty Banana Coffee Pops

ThePoptailManual_Dirty_Banana_Coffee_Pops_PageI've been thinking about making boozy ice pops for quite a while now but never got around to it until I looked through The Poptail Manual and was inspired by the Dirty Banana Coffee Pop recipe: a tasty combo of coconut, banana, rum, and coffee liquor. Readily available ingredients, super easy prep, and voila!  The result was boozy but the banana offset the rum nicely and the texture, as you might expect, was like a softer version of a Creamsicle®

As you see below, my pops turned out to be more the color of an overripe banana, probably because I have a preference for dark rum and used that instead of light.  If you want to try your own batch of Dirty Banana Coffee Pops, check out the recipe* below. Right now I've got The Poptail Manual turned to the page for a Berry Grapefruit Rosé Sangria recipe that looks perfect for the heat coming our way this week...
