Pineapple Coconut Mint Popsicles Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks: (about 1 medium pineapple)
  • 1 (14 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk: Creates the rich, creamy texture
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup: Adjust sweetness to your preference
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice: Brings out the bright flavors

Equipment and Utensils

  • Blender
  • Popsicle molds
  • Popsicle sticks

Instructions

1. Prep the pineapple

  • Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple.
  • Stand it upright and carefully slice off the outer skin.
  • Remove the eyes (the little brown spots) if desired.
  • Cut the pineapple into quarters, then remove the tough core.
  • Chop into smaller chunks.

2. Blend the ingredients

  • Combine the pineapple chunks, coconut milk, mint leaves, honey/maple syrup, and lime juice in the blender.
  • Blend until the mixture is completely smooth. Give it a taste test and add more sweetener if needed.

3. Fill the molds

  • Carefully pour the mixture into your popsicle molds, leaving about 1/4 inch of space at the top for expansion during freezing.
  • Insert the popsicle sticks according to your mold’s design.

4. Freeze!

  • Place the molds in the freezer for at least 6 hours, or preferably overnight, until completely solid.

5. Unmold and enjoy

  • To easily remove the popsicles, run the outside of the molds under warm water for a few seconds.
  • Gently wiggle the popsicles to loosen them and enjoy the refreshing, tropical treat!

Tips

Fresh vs. frozen pineapple: Fresh pineapple will give the most vibrant flavor, but frozen pineapple chunks work too!

Coconut milk options: Use light coconut milk if you prefer a less rich popsicle.

Make it creamy: For an even creamier texture, try freezing a portion of the coconut milk to create little coconut milk “ice cubes” and blending them in.
