Pineapple Orange Pops
During the summer months, we are cold treat fanatics. My kids love Popsicles and ice cream, anything cold and sweet, ha ha. One of their favorite summertime treats is my Pineapple Dole Whip.
We had a nice run of hot weather here in Cincinnati this past week. The first hot day, I had myself a mission…Homemade Popsicles. Since I had Pineapple chunks and some orange juice on hand, that was our flavor duo.
Pineapple and orange together make for an AMAZING cold pop. Plus, they are super simple to make. Great for a pool party or any hot summer day treat.
It’s always fun to find what you have on hand to make a new recipe creation. Cold pops can be made with so many different ingredients. We will quite often combine a couple different flavors together like the Watermelon Kiwi Pops I shared on my other blog last year.
For our Pineapple Orange Pops, I used a can of pineapple chunks and some orange juice. I considered adding in some honey or sugar but they were perfect without any additional sweetener. I used paper cups and small wooden pop sticks. You could use this same recipe in your pop makers too!
20 oz can Pineapple Chunks
12 oz Orange Juice
Set 12 3 oz disposable cups in a small pan or tray.
Put pineapple with pineapple juice in blender and pulse until nearly liquid.
Pour into cups filling between 1/2 and 2/3 full.
Place in freezer for 30-45 minutes.
Insert wooden sticks in partially frozen pineapple and return to freezer for 1-2 hours.
Fill remainder of cup with orange juice and return to freezer for 1-2 hours or frozen.
