Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a pineapple, peeled
  • 1 young coconut
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of cane or coconut sugar
  • Popsicle containers

You would think that Pina Colada pops have rum but these popsicles are kid friendly. They are very sweet and healthy. My brother and I really enjoyed them.

I like them because they are very refreshing after a hot day at camp. I could not wait to try them as soon as I got home.

I love these popsicles and hope you enjoy them too.

Directions

1) Cut half of a pineapple into chunks and throw it in the blender. Make sure you keep the core for all the nutrients. Remove the skin and woody holes on the pineapple.

2) Open a coconut and pour the water into the blender. Scrape out the coconut meat with a spoon and throw into the blender.

3) Blend until smooth and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of cane or coconut sugar according to your sweet tooth and blend again.

4) Pour into popsicle container and throw 2 halves of a cherry (pitted) on top and then add the stick or cover. Use organic cherries. I love Ranier cherries.

5) Freeze overnight. When ready to eat, put the container under warm water for a second or two to easily remove the popsicle.

Enjoy!

These posts are good practice for her. We hope to find topics your children find interesting and encourage them to start writing as well. If you have any great ideas for posts about foods or fun activities, feel free to share them in the comments. She would love to hear from her friends. Have a great summer!
