Using only fresh fruit and water makes this a quick and easy treat to make well in advance and have it ready for the weekend.
Fresh seasonal fruits makes this a healthy and sugar free snack for most everyone.
I didn’t take photos of my prep for this recipe. It was so fast and easy to make it would have taken me longer to stop and take photos than it did to put this together. It’s a simple prep of cut fruit, puree in blender and pour into mold.
Tasting the pureed pineapple and the pureed fruit’s thickness will be the deciding factor on how much water your choose to add to the mixture. I chose to add only 1/2 cup of water for just the right consistency and flavor.
If the pineapple you use is ripe it will definitely be sweet, though it is a matter of personal taste if you think you would like it sweeter and add sugar. I have been reducing the amount of sugar I use in my recipes so my family prefers less sweetness.
- 2 cups of cut up fresh pineapple
- 1-2 strawberries sliced thin
- 1-2 cups filtered water (optional or add as needed)
Add sugar as needed (my pineabpple was very sweet so I didn't add sugar)
- Slice the strawberries fairly thin, set aside until the the pineapple is added to the molds.
- Add the cut up pineapple into a high speed blender or add regular blender and puree the fruit.
- If the fruit has not pureed to a smooth consistency add ¼ cup of water and continue to puree for a few more seconds.
- Add additional water a little at a time to desired consistency and pour into the molds.
- Place a slice of strawberry into each mold.
- Freeze for several hours until firm.
I love making frozen fruit treats and it’s was more fun when my grandson saw how easy it is to make popsicles and he started making his own.
I will share my grandson’s fudge popsicle recipe in my next frozen treat post. He’s a mad scientist in the kitchen and we have lots of fun together.
