Pineapple Popsicle Ingredients

Pineapple juice and crushed pineapple in bowl

This is seriously the easiest recipe as it only takes two ingredients. 100% Pineapple juice + crushed pineapple {or fresh}.

If your family has any texture issues you can easily leave out the crushed pineapple, since it creates a slightly stringy texture. Another option is minced fresh pineapple which in my opinion is even better, albeit a little more work.

Homemade Popsicle Mold

Mixing in a blender will accentuate the strings so I recommend stirring the pineapple and juice together. Or pouring juice directly into your silicone popsicle molds and adding some of the diced fresh pineapple to each opening.

As you pour into your popsicle molds, stop at the fill line. This is important as the mixture will expand as it freezes {popsicle science 😉} and overflow if you overfill. Put on the lid and slide in the popsicle sticks.

If you are concerned about the use of wooden popsicle sticks you can try these reusable food safe plastic ones. Please note: these are slightly wider than the average stick but work just fine in the silicone mold I purchased, as the silicone opening has enough stretch. This popsicle mold kit also includes wooden sticks, plastic bags, and a tiny little funnel for pouring.

But if you end up losing all your reusable sticks……which you will……having some wooden popsicle sticks as a backup is a pretty good idea. They are biodegradable after the kids are done or you can soak and reuse them outside! Plus if you don't need them for popsicles, you can use them for a plethora of kids crafts.

Freeze Homemade Pineapple Popsicles

After your mold is filled, lid on, and sticks inserted, CAREFULLY place your mold in the freezer making sure it is on a level surface. There will be some separation of juice and solids, so it won't look quite as pretty as a store bought popsicle but they will taste delicious.

Package and Serve Pineapple Popsicles

A few hours in the freezer works, but if you have time fill the mold in the evening to let them freeze overnight. To serve directly from the mold, just run warm water along the bottom and sides to help release the frozen pops.

If you plan to serve your pineapple popsicles for an event, I recommend placing them in plastic sleeves for easy storage, transportation, and serving. 50 plastic sleeves come in the Silicone popsicle mold I purchased but you can also get popsicle storage bags here if you don't want the kit, or need a restock.

If you choose to spruce them up a little, {which I highly recommend} cut simple paper toppers and tape to the outside of the bag or directly to the sticks. The toppers are easy enough to create, but let me know in the comments if you'd like me to add a template.
