Homemade popsicles are my favorite warm weather treat. My kids think they’re getting the best treat in the world and don’t even realize that most of the time, they’re only eating frozen fruit.
Popsicles are one thing I never buy from the store. The cheap versions are full of artificial food dyes, which I try to avoid as much as possible. The more expensive versions usually still have a good amount of added sugars. It’s much less expensive to make them myself at home, and I love that I can control the ingredients. Most of the time, I only use a few ingredients and the homemade popsicles taste even better than what I can buy in the store. You can’t beat the taste of fresh!
These homemade popsicles are made with just pineapple and coconut milk. The coconut milk gives them a creamy texture without dairy, and the coconut flavor pairs perfectly with the pineapple for a tropical flair. It’s as easy as blending the two ingredients together and pouring the mixture into your molds. Luke helped me make these and was so happy to be a big kitchen helper.
What made these even easier for me was my Zoku Quick Pop Maker maker. Last Christmas I got one as a gift and I wish I’d had one years ago! Seriously, guys, it’s awesome. Homemade popsicles with almost no waiting! You pour your liquid in and it’s frozen in seven minutes. Now for kids seven minutes seems like an eternity, but it’s a whole heck of a lot better than having to wait hours for the things to freeze.
This recipe makes 12 popsicles. I like having popsicles on hand in the freezer for whenever we want them. I made six with the Zoku Pop Maker, and 6 with my Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold, which I also love because it’s not plastic. Just adds a bit more waiting time to the equation.
Although my kids love these popsicles, they aren’t just for kids. With just 100 calories, these are a perfect after-dinner treat for moms and dads, too! We’ll be eating these 2-ingredient Pineapple Popsicles and my 3-ingredient Fudge Pops all summer long!
Recommended for this recipe:
- 5 cups pineapple chunks (I used partially thawed frozen; either fresh or frozen is fine)
- 1 (15 ounce) can coconut milk (I used full fat version, lite will probably work fine)
- Blend together the pineapple chunks and coconut milk. Pour liquid into your popsicles molds and freeze. Enjoy!
