Author Notes: Four ingredients to shop for, four minutes to make, and with a four-hour stopover in the freezer, you will be transported to a tropical island. Priceless.

Needless to say, you do not need proper ice pop “equipment” to do this, it works great with ice cube trays, mini plastic cups or muffin molds. But if you have kids and 14 bucks to invest, I found the molds to be an infinite source of fun projects and a great way to get your kid to eat fruits.

Makes 6 standard size ice pops

  • 14 ounces fresh pineapple, cut in cubes
  • 1 1/4 cups light unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 9 maraschino cherries (or candied cherries if making for kids)
  1. In a blender pure the pineapple. Add the sugar and coconut milk and continue to puree until very smooth. Pour into molds.
  2. Cut the cherries in halves. Drop three cherry halves into each mold and with a skewer gently distribute so that they are visible from outside. Insert wooden sticks. (The pure will be quite firm and you can do it immediately, otherwise freeze for about 20 minutes and then insert sticks.)
  3. Freeze until firm. Place the molds under hot water to remove pops and serve.

My husband and I tested these, and we LOVED them! Did we listen to Escape (a.k.a. The Piña Colada Song) while making these? You bet we did! The pops were ready for the freezer before the four minute and thirty-six second song was over, and were ready to eat after about four hours in the freezer. These pops are refreshing, not overly sweet, and have a nice texture that you can sink your teeth into. The fresh pineapple is tangy and bright, and the cherries add little bursts of sweetness. We can't wait to try them again, and maybe with a little rum, as you suggest! Thanks for a great recipe!

Thank you - they are even more delish with a drop of rum or Baileys, but I have a six year old :(

Thank you... They are my daughter's favorite, so we had an entire project around making them pretty for the "photoshoot" :)
