Piña Colada Pop

Ingredients:

  • Whole cored pineapple
  • Farm Boy Organic Coconut Milk
  • Lime juice
  • Simple syrup – made by dissolving equal parts of sugar into water over heat.

Pro tip: if you have made ice pops before that get crystally or grainy – maybe it’s the sugar element you’ve included. Liquid sweeteners freeze more smoothly than just adding sugar to a mixture. Simple syrup is a good way to combat this!

Method:

  • Cut pineapple into chunks.
  • Blend together pineapple and coconut milk until very smooth.
  • Add lime juice and simple syrup to taste.
  • Add water if necessary to thin out the mixture so it is pourable.
  • Pour into ice pop molds and freeze – at least 6 hours.

Let us know if you try any of these! Do you have any other favourites? We’d love to know what you put in your homemade pops!
