We love Pineapple Popsicles.
We think you will too.
You may be wondering why you haven’t had a Pineapple Pop as part of your Thanksgiving menu.
Well, we know what you are thinking: Why don’t we just get our Pineapple-Powered Popsicle Molds from Amazon?
The answer is that Amazon has them.
They are so cheap they are worth it.
They have been on our Christmas wish list for months, so we thought it was time to get our hands on a batch of them.
It’s hard to overstate how good they are.
They deliver freshness, flavor, and consistency to the plate.
If you have an existing batch of Pineapple POPs in your freezer or a friend who does, this is the one you need to make.
They come in two flavors: Cinnamon and Chocolate.
Cinnamon is a rich, chocolatey flavor that compliments the pineapples sweetness.
This recipe is a great way to add a touch of flavor to your Thanksgiving feast, and is perfect for those times when you want something light and crunchy.
I also like to add cinnamon powder to make the ice pops more palatable.
The ice pops are made with real pineapple chunks, but you can use regular pineapple chunks as well.
If your favorite flavor is not listed, you can always make your own.
The Pineapple pops are so good they might even be a good fit for some of the traditional holidays.
We had a few family members who have been waiting a year for their first Pineapple pop.
So, if you can wait, you might want to start with a batch in your pantry and add more pops as you go.
Here’s how to make Pineapple and Chocolate Ice Pops: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
Refrigerate for up to two weeks.
Let cool completely.
(The ice pops will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up 1-2 weeks.)
This recipe makes two ice pops.
If the freezer isn’t a perfect fit, you could also double this recipe and freeze half a dozen.
If that’s not your thing, just freeze the whole batch and freeze in a sealed container in the freezer for up 6-8 weeks.
When they are all frozen, cut the ice chunks into pieces of 3-4 inches.
(I like to use about 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks for the ice.)
Remove the frozen ice from the freezer and mix with a fork.
Add the chopped pineapple chunks to the ice pop mix.
Add a few drops of cinnamon to the mix.
Repeat with the remaining ice chunks.
(If you don’t have a mixer, try a spoon.)
Place a piece of plastic wrap on the freezer to hold the frozen pieces in place.
Let the frozen pops chill in the refrigerator for at least 3-5 days.
This ice pops can be frozen in the airtight freezer for about 6-10 days, or frozen in an ice cube tray in the microwave for about 1-3 minutes.
I have made this recipe three times now.
I find that it tastes best when chilled for at the end of the day or during the holidays.
If all of the pineapple chunks are used up and you don,t have time to make a second batch, just let them cool for a few minutes before using them.
(To make a large batch, cut out pieces of the same size and freeze the pineapple pieces in the same amount of ice for up-to-24 hours.
I like to freeze the smaller chunks in a zip lock bag or freezer bag for a couple days before using.
To make a smaller batch, I like the freezer bag method.
The smaller pieces will also keep in the zip lock freezer bag.
For the ice cream topping, mix together all ingredients except the coconut milk.
Place a large pan of ice cream in the fridge and add the coconut oil.
Once the ice is melted, pour the ice creams mixture over the top.
Mix well to coat.
Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
Recipe Notes If you are using a traditional ice cream maker, add the powdered sugar to the creams before filling the ice cone.
If not, mix the sugar with the whipped cream, then add the sugar to make sure you have the desired consistency.
If using a non-traditional ice cream Maker, use a handheld mixer to whip the ice and then fill the cone with the melted ice cream mixture.
Make sure you are filling the cone properly before adding the ice.
If adding ice cream, do not mix until it is thick enough to pour.
If there is a little excess water in the ice, add a little more water until it comes to a rolling consistency.
You can also add a few tablespoons of vanilla extract to the filling before filling.
You will notice that there is no water in these ice pops when they are in the frozen form, but they will keep frozen in a freezer bag in
