Tropical Popsicle

Makes 6 popsicles

INGREDIENTS:

6 popsicle molds or small paper cups

6 popsicle sticks

Fresh mango and pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed

Fresh mango and pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped

1 ½ cups of mango puree

(I used fresh mango, peeled, pitted, chopped then pureed, but frozen mango that is thawed, then pureed will work just as well)

1 ½ cups of pineapple puree

(I used fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, chopped, then pureed, but  frozen pineapple that is thawed, then pureed will work just as well)

1 cup coconut milk, mostly the top cream

¼ cup sugar

2 tsp. lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.

2. Using a funnel, pour combined ingredients into each popsicle mold or cup.

3a. If using popsicle molds, add top and popsicle sticks, the place in freezer.

3b. If using cups, cover each cup with plastic wrap; make a small slit to insert sticks, then place in freezer.

4. Popsicles should be frozen solid in 4-6 hours.

5. Remove pops by gently tugging on stick. If they don’t come out easily, you can either run water on the outside of the mold or carefully run a dull knife around the inside edge of the mold.

 

Time to enjoy the tropical fruits of your labor with this refreshing treat.

    • Thank you Wendy!!

      I know you’ll love them! I got my popsicle mold at TJ Maxx, in case you don’t have one.

      Thanks again for stopping by!

    • Thanks you, Suzy!

      I know – this enduring hot weather is perfect for popsicles.

      Mine are currently sitting in the fridge still in the mold. I read somewhere that you should unmold the pop after the first six hours, then wrap them in wax paper, so they’re ready to eat when you are. I’ll know for next time…

      Thanks so much for stopping by!
