Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups diced pineapple (fresh or thawed frozen–not canned)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk (more, if needed)
  • 12 Tbsp pure maple syrup or honey (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place pineapple, 1/2 cup coconut milk, and syrup/honey (if using) into your blender.
  2. Puree until completely smooth and no lumps remain, adding more coconut milk if necessary to blend.
  3. Taste and add additional syrup or honey as needed, blending again to combine.
  4. Pour into popsicle mold, insert sticks, and freeze 3-4 hours or until completely firm.
  5. To release from popsicle mold, run mold under cool water for a few seconds and use a side-to-side motion to release popsicle from the mold.
  6. Store leftover popsicles in an airtight bag or container in the freezer.

Notes

Can I Just Make a Dole Whip Instead? Yep! If you’re making “nice cream” or soft-serve, I recommend using a food processor and frozen pineapple over fresh. You can get by using less coconut milk in a food processor with frozen pineapple than you can in a blender, so you’ll get that nice soft-serve texture, rather than it turning into a smoothie.

A Tip About Coconut Milk – I highly recommend using canned full-fat coconut milk in this recipe. It’ll give you the best creamy texture and you’re really not using a lot for the whole recipe. If you *must* use a lower fat version, I recommend lite canned coconut milk over the refrigerated/carton stuff. The ready-to-drink/carton coconut milk will be very thin and will give you more ice-y pops rather than a creamy popsicle.

PS – Looking for coconut milk without any gums? Natural Value has only coconut + water!
