Why I love these Pineapple Popsicles

I love these Pineapple Popsicles because they are super easy to make and are only 106 calories per popsicle! That feels like a double win in my book for desserts.

I also like these popsicles because they only require 2 ingredients. My son also loves these popsicles and if I can find a lower sugar treat option for him, I’m always happy with that.

Ingredients needed to make Creamy Pineapple Popsicles

As I mentioned, you only need 2 ingredients for these pineapple popsicles: pineapple and coconut milk. Fresh pineapple and full-fat coconut milk will give you the best results as far as taste and texture but see below for some substitute options.

Can I Use Canned Pineapple for this recipe?

Yes, you can use canned pineapple for this recipe. And, since you are blending the pineapple before freezing, you can use slices, chunks, or crushed pineapple.

If you do use canned pineapple, watch out for the extra sugar! Canned pineapple usually has more sugar and calories so if you do decide to use canned pineapple, look for one with no added sugar or is canned in fruit juice instead of syrup.

Can I use low-fat Coconut Milk?

Yes, you can substitute full-fat coconut milk with low-fat coconut milk. The result will be a little less creamy, however, the pineapple is the star of these frozen treats and the popsicles will still be delicious.

What to Do With the Extra Pineapple Puree and Coconut Milk?

You will end up with some leftover coconut milk and most likely pineapple as well. Here are some ideas of what to do with the extras:

  1. Make more popsicles!
  2. Use in a pina colada (I mean, you are halfway there already) with or without alcohol
  3. Eat the pineapple and drink the juice
  4. Freeze both for later: add to an ice cube tray, freeze and store in a sealable container!
  5. Use the coconut milk in a savory dish like my Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup

Tools for Making Homemade Popsicles

You can use a blender or a food processor to blend the pineapple. I used my VitaMix blender or you can use this KitchenAid Food Processor seen below.

My favorite popsicle molds are made out of silicone. The silicone makes the popsicles easy to remove when frozen and the mold is easy to clean.
