🎶 “If you like piña colada and getting caught in the rain,” 🎶 (I bet you sang that), then you’re going to absolutely love our piña colada pineapple pops.
If you’re looking for a refreshing summer treat, look no further than these piña colada pineapple pops! Made with only a handful of ingredients, these popsicles are easy to make and packed with tropical flavors.
The star of these popsicles is, of course, the pineapple. Fresh pineapple is great, but for convenience, we’re using frozen pineapple. Plus, freezing the pineapple gives these pops a slushy texture that’s oh-so-refreshing.
In addition to the pineapple, we’re using a blend of pineapple juice, piña colada syrup, and coconut milk. The pineapple juice adds even more pineapple flavor, while the syrup adds a touch of sweetness and the coconut milk lends creaminess.
Health Benefits of Pineapples
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love pineapples. This delicious, tart-sweet fruit offers a multitude of benefits to the body. I enjoy adding them to my shakes, pies, salads, and even my pizza (don’t tell the Italians).
Bromelain, which is found in pineapples, has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps protect against disease. Pineapples also have a lot of powerful antioxidants and vitamins. When bromelain is taken regularly, it has been shown to reduce swelling and improve mobility. It is sometimes even used to treat sports injuries. Eating one or two servings of pineapple per day can boost immune system health as well as strengthen bones due to a high concentration of manganese.
Further, research shows that consuming natural sugars from fruits like pineapples helps you maintain healthy blood glucose levels over time—another great benefit for everyone! So the next time you order your pizza, feel free to add them. 😉
Now that I’ve made my case for pineapple-loving people like myself, here’s how to make these delicious popsicles.
