How long do the popsicles need to freeze?

These pineapple popsicles need to be for at least 4-6 hours, but for the best results, freeze them overnight.

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!

Expert Tips

  • 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.
