Pineapple coconut popsicles with only three ingredients, so they're quick and easy to put together! They’re sweet, creamy, and perfect for hot summer days. I use canned pineapple that only contains pineapple and pineapple juice. It will have less unpronounceable ingredients and the popsicles will be sweetened with the pineapple juice.
Can Coconut Milk
If you’ve never used coconut milk from a can, the fat separates from the coconut water. You’ll have coconut cream sitting at the top of the can. I’ve had issues opening cans of coconut milk and it’s all watery versus separated. It’s not a problem if that happens for this recipe, the popsicles will still be good. The fat gives the popsicles a smooth creamy consistency, so if the coconut milk didn't separate the popsicles won’t be as creamy. The brand that I’ve been using to test this recipe is Thai Kitchen Full Fat Unsweetened Coconut Milk and I haven’t had a problem with separation from them like I have with other brands. You can always try to stick the can in the refrigerator overnight for the fat to solidify more. Don’t shake the can, you don’t want to mix the cream and water.
How to Make Pineapple Coconut Popsicles
Scoop out ½ cup of the coconut cream for the pineapple coconut popsicles. The rest of the liquid can be used for smoothies. Then blend the pineapple, coconut cream, and lime juice until you reach your desired consistency. Pour in your popsicle molds and freeze for 6 hours. When you’re ready to enjoy the popsicles, place them under warm running water for 5-10 seconds or let them thaw slightly for 5 minutes on the counter.
I hope you enjoy these popsicles, they’re a refreshing homemade sweet treat for the summer. They’re also kid-approved, at least at my house!
