Lava Flow Popsicles

  • Author: Emily
  • Yield: 10 1x



For the Pineapple Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups cubed pineapple
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1/23/4 cup coconut milk (I prefer full-fat canned)

For the Strawberry Swirl:

  • 2 1/2 cups strawberries
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey or agave (optional–only as needed)


MAKE THE PINEAPPLE LAYER: Place ingredients in a blender and puree until completely smooth. Add additional coconut milk as needed.

Transfer pineapple coconut mixture to a liquid measuring cup or a small pitcher while you make the strawberry layer.

MAKE THE STRAWBERRY SWIRL: Place ingredients in a blender and puree until completely smooth.

TO ASSEMBLE: Alternate scoops of pineapple and strawberry smoothies into popsicle molds. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until completely solid. (Mine typically take at least 3 hours)


IF YOU DON’T HAVE A POPSICLE MOLD: You can use paper cups. If you use paper cups, freeze the popsicles about 30 minutes, then insert the popsicle sticks. (The sticks will shift less this way.)

FRESH OR FROZEN. You can make these with fresh or frozen fruit (or a combination). Your proportions will be the same. If you’re using frozen fruit, you’ll want to let it thaw slightly so it blends easier. Otherwise, you’ll need slightly more liquid to blend frozen fruit than fresh.

HOW TO STORE THEM: After they’re totally frozen solid, I typically remove them from the mold and put them into a zip-top freezer bag. It works like a charm! Popsicles will keep 2-3 weeks, though I doubt they’ll last that long without being eaten!
