Easy Pineapple Mint Popsicles

Easy Pineapple Mint Popsicles

Craving a refreshing summer treat? An easy little project? Something sweet, but not too sweet? These minty pineapple ice pops are just the ticket. They’re made with just two ingredients—pineapple and mint!

These popsicles are naturally sweetened with fruit alone. I actually make my pops with frozen pineapple, which is easy and inexpensive.

I designed this recipe to be made with frozen pineapple. Why? It’s cheaper than fresh pineapple, and we’re freezing it again anyway. Plus, frozen pineapple is preserved at the peak of ripeness, and it can be challenging to know when to cut into a fresh pineapple. A few notes:

Be sure to use well-preserved frozen pineapple (not old, frost-bitten pineapple, which will taste funny).

For food safety purposes, it’s important that you defrost the pineapple in the refrigerator (not at room temperature, and do not heat the pineapple to speed up the process). This will take roughly two to four hours, or you can just leave it overnight.

Let the pineapple thaw completely in the fridge, or you’ll have trouble blending it up. Be sure to blend and re-freeze the defrosted pineapple within 48 hours (again, for food safety).

Frozen pops will keep indefinitely under proper storage conditions, though they may lose their flavor over time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound frozen pineapple chunks, defrosted completely in the refrigerator
  • 1 tablespoon lightly packed fresh mint leaves, to taste
