Have you tried a lava flow? Basically it’s a really awesome pineapple-coconut drink with a strawberry swirl layer. It’s aaahmazing.
I wanted to give it a popsicle twist for the holiday weekend. These were an awesome Memorial Day treat, perfect after an afternoon of swimming and playing outside.
This is one of those recipes that looks deceptively tricky. These are as easy as can be. You mix up two small batches of smoothie in your blender, then alternate adding a spoonful or two of each into your popsicle mold till they’re full. I’ve found this works much better than trying to swirl the two mixtures together with a knife or toothpick. When I try to swirl them, everything ends up just mixing completely together and you don’t get that pretty marbling I love.
If your fruit isn’t very sweet, you may want to add a little drizzle of honey. We typically leave it out, but let your tastebuds be your guide.

P.S. Do you need a popsicle mold? This is my favorite one. The lid holds the popsicle molds in place and it’s big enough to hold all the popsicles in this recipe.
- 1½ cups pineapple
- 1 cup mangos
- ½ cup - ¾ cup coconut milk (I use canned)
- 2 cups strawberries
- 3-4 Tbsp orange juice
- 1 Tbsp honey (optional)
- Place ingredients in a blender and puree until completely smooth. Add additional coconut milk as needed.
- Place ingredients in a blender and puree until completely smooth.
- Alternate scoops of pineapple and strawberry smoothies into popsicle molds. Insert popsicle molds and freeze until completely solid.
- Tip: If you use paper cups, freeze the popsicles about 30 minutes, then insert the popsicle sticks. The sticks will shift less this way.
