Ingredients

The push pops will need to be made and frozen in layers. You can make the mixtures for the layers all at once and keep the mixtures in the fridge as you wait for them to freeze.
 
Orange layer--puree 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk, 1/2 cup mandarin oranges, 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract, four drops orange food coloring and 1 teaspoon sugar in the blender. Pour mixture in each of the 6 push-up pop containers until 1/3 full. Place upright in freezer until frozen solid.
 
White layer--puree 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk, 1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract and 1 teaspoon sugar in the blender. Pour mixture in each of the 6 push-up pop containers over the orange layer until 2/3 full. Place upright in freezer until frozen solid.
 
Yellow layer--puree 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk, 1/2 cup pineapple chunks, 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract, four drops yellow food coloring and 1 teaspoon sugar in the blender. Pour mixture in each of the 6 push-up pop containers over the white layer until full, and place the lids on each of the containers. Place upright in freezer until frozen solid, then serve.
