Vegan Pineapple Ice Pops

YIELD: 4

These tropical treats are actually quite popular in Mexico and are referred to as paleta de pina. Paleta have countless flavor variations, but I love these pineapple pops because of the natural candy-like flavor of the pineapple. You’ll need popsicle molds or silicone ice cube trays for mini-pops or simply use small paper cups.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups diced pineapple, drained
  • ½ cup Simple Syrup
  • ½ teaspoon rum or vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk

Method:

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until mostly pureed. Pour into popsicle molds, place wooden sticks into the center, and freeze overnight. Keeps for up to 3 months frozen.

Tip:

Use agave in place of the simple syrup if desired, but expect a darker color to your pops.
