Pineapple Banana Popsicles

Hi Everyone,

Now that it feels like summer, I thought it would be a great time to pull out the Popsicle mold.  I love Popsicles!  I thought it would be a bit healthier making my own, rather than buying them and besides I think there fun to make.  Plus it’s so quick and easy.  The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze.  For today’s Popsicle I made Pineapple Banana Popsicles.

These Popsicle’s tastes so delicious!  It’s rich and creamy and tastes like a pina colada without the rum.  I made it with frozen pineapple, and a fresh banana and coconut milk.  Of course to give it a tropical taste I also added a little bit of coconut extract.  It truly tastes like a decant treat.

The banana gives it such a nice creamy texture and for some odd reason when you add coconut extract the banana flavor kind of goes away and your left with a true coconut flavor.  The pineapple notes really shine though nicely.  I would have liked to have made this with fresh pineapple, but I didn’t have any on hand. If you have fresh pineapple, use it in this recipe.

I used 2 oz popsicle molds; 12 oz total. You can also use a plastic cup, pour the mixture into the cup top the cup with aluminum foil and poke a hole in the center and add a popsicle stick or a straw. Note the straw will go limp when eating it, but it does work.

Do not use coconut milk from a can.

Each Popsicle are only 35 calories each.  You can not beat that.  A perfect treat for kids.  For adults, add a pinch of rum and you have a perfect poolside Popsicle.

I bought my Popsicle mold at Cost Plus World Market.  As I stated in the recipe, you can also use a plastic cup, and pour the mixture into the cup, top with aluminium foil or plastic wrap and poke a hole in the center and place the Popsicle stick in the hole.  Just be careful that it doesn’t tip over in the freezer.
