Popsicle are one of my absolute favorite snacks. They’re perfect to help keep you cool on a warm day AND they taste amazing!
I’m always on the hunt for new homemade popsicle recipes because I’m not a fan of all of the ingredients that are in store bought popsicles.
One of my favorite popsicle recipes uses berries and I love the delicious fruity taste.
But today I was craving something that tasted a little bit more tropical. Maybe I’m just wishing I was on a warm sandy beach right now instead of at home typing away on my computer.
So I decided that I wanted to try and make some pineapple flavored popsicles. And they turned out AMAZING! So I decide to share the recipe with all of you!
This recipe only takes 2 ingredients!!! And I literally whipped it up in about 2 minutes.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- ½ cup of milk
- 1 can of sliced pineapple
- Popsicle mold
You can use whatever type of milk you want for this recipe. I used regular whole milk, but I think almond or coconut milk would also taste AMAZING in this recipe.
I used canned pineapple (because cutting a fresh pineapple is a lot of work). I used the canned pineapple that comes in round slices, but you could use any type you have on hand. Whenever I get canned fruit I always make sure that there isn’t added sugar and that the pineapple is canned in pineapple juice. Pineapple is sweet enough on its own so I don’t think it needs added sugar.
You could add some honey or sugar to this recipe, but I decided to just leave it out. Honestly it tasted great without it because pineapple is so sweet by itself!
I just combined all of the ingredients into a blender. I only used about 5-6 slices of pineapple and I broke up the slices into smaller pieces to make it easier to blend. I also poured in a little bit of pineapple juice that was leftover in the can (probably about ¼ cup) to add some extra pineapple flavor.
Then I just blended it up until it was mixed together and poured it into my popsicle molds. My popsicle mold is similar to this one, and I really like it! It works great for me! Make sure you blend it really well otherwise your popsicles could be a little stringy.
I left the popsicles in the freezer for about 5 hours and wallah! I had a delicious, tropical treat that made me feel like I was relaxing on a warm beach (even though I was really just hanging out in my kitchen)
With the leftover pineapple slices I also decided to make another popsicle! This one was even easier! I just put a popsicle stick through the pineapple slice, placed it on a small piece of tinfoil and stuck it in the freezer for 2 hours!
It was SOO good! And it took me about 30 seconds to do! I had one and it was so good I had to make another one! This time I sprinkled coconut over the top and it made it the perfect summer treat!
