I have really been trying to curb my sweet cravings lately. Fruit and peanut butter have been my main go-tos. I feel like fruit is a pretty perfect dessert because it’s sweet and healthy. Popsicles combine those worlds perfectly. These sweet little numbers reminds me of summer.
Note that Florida has decided to have its most erratic winter in my life’s history. January was boiling, and it is now currently in the 50′s. But I have no fears. These lovely pops are in the freezer ready for the much-too-hot winter temperatures that will return in a day or so.
Clean Piña Colada Popsicle Recipe makes about 8
1C coconut milk
2/3C pineapple chunks I used fresh but canned would work fine
juice from 1 lime
1/4t xanthan gum optional
Combine all ingredients into a blender. Though the xanthan gum is not absolutely necessary, just know that the coconut milk and juice from the pineapple will not want to stay blended. The xanthan gum helps keeps the flavors evenly distributed.
Pour into your popsicle molds and freeze. So easy!
This is a great picture to show you what omitting xanthan gum looks like. Notice the top of the pop is very white – it’s mostly coconut milk and not very flavorful. It’s just about a bite’s worth so it’s not a deal breaker, but I just wanted you to know. Still yummy!
