Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
- Fresh Pineapple: Use fresh ripe pineapple for the best flavor. To use canned pineapple, opt for pineapple chunks and drain the syrup or juice first to avoid added sweetness and liquid.
- Coconut Milk: Use only the thick part of the canned coconut milk, you should be able to scoop it off the top. Discard the liquid.

Blend: Using a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients on high until the mixture is smooth and fully combined.
Fill Molds: Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds. The mixture should fill 6 molds. Place wooden sticks into the middle of each.
Freeze: Transfer the molds to the freezer, and let them set overnight or until solid. To release the popsicles, briefly immerse each mold in warm water for 10-15 seconds, and they should slide out effortlessly. Enjoy!
- Quality Ingredients: Always use fresh pineapple for the best flavor. The riper the fruit, the sweeter and more flavorful your popsicles will be.
- Blend Properly: Blend the mixture until completely smooth for a creamier texture. If you prefer bits of fruit in your popsicle, pulse a few times less.
- Stick Placement: Ensure the popsicle sticks are centered and straight for the best results and easier eating.
How do I prevent the popsicles from sticking to the molds?
Running the molds under warm water for a few seconds before removing them will help release the popsicles easily.
Can I use coconut water instead of coconut milk?
Yes, coconut water can be used for a lighter version of the popsicles, but the popsicles will be less creamy and might have a more icy texture compared to those made with coconut milk.
Store: Once fully frozen, popsicles can be transferred from their molds to a freezer-safe zip-top bag or airtight container. Place a sheet of parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking. Store in the freezer for up to 1-2 months for optimal freshness.
Pineapple popsicles should be kept in the freezer, not the refrigerator, to maintain their solid state.
