Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cup unsweetened plain or flavored coconut water

  • 2 cup fresh pineapple chunks

  • cup packed fresh mint leaves

  • 2 teaspoon lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave syrup

Directions

  1. In a blender or food processor combine coconut water, 1 1/2 cups of the pineapple, the mint, lime juice, and honey. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Press through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Let stand 10 minutes; spoon off and discard any foam. (You should have about 2 1/2 cups juice.)

  2. Pour strained mixture into ice pop molds, filling each about two-thirds full. Thinly slice remaining 1/2 cup pineapple and divide slices among molds.* Cover and freeze overnight or until firm.

*

To keep the pineapple slices evenly distributed, add half of the slices and freeze 30 to 40 minutes or until slushy. Then add the remaining slices and freeze until firm. The ice crystals will help keep the pineapple suspended.

Tips

To help release frozen pops, dip the molds in warm water for 30 seconds before unmolding.
