Pineapple Banana Popsicles
Creamy, dreamy Pineapple Banana Popsicles. These popsicles are a delicious treat for both kids and adults alike. Just a few simple ingredients, and you’ve got yourself a healthy, naturally sweet treat!
These popsicles give me vacation vibes, even if it’s just for the moment while I am enjoying these. It has a similar taste to a Piña Colada, just without the alcohol and using banana and soymilk instead of the coconut milk. I have been loving using pineapple in my recipes lately, cold smoothie-like recipes or even roasted for salsas or paired with tofu and veggies. It’s a pretty versatile fruit!
If you love this recipe (or maybe you aren’t a fan of pineapple), be sure to check-out my Strawberry Banana Popsicle recipe. My family loves both of these recipes— and I hope you do too!
A few notes before you get started:
FRESH VS. FROZEN: You can use fresh or frozen fruit for this recipe. If you are using frozen fruit, be sure to thaw it out slightly before blending.
POPSICLE MOLDS: If you don’t have a popsicle mold, feel free to use ice cube trays and make little frozen bites! I love doing this with smoothies, like my Minty Green Smoothie.
NICE CREAM: If you prefer to have nice cream instead, check-out my Pineapple Banana Nice Cream recipe.
PLANT-BASED MILK: Feel free to use whichever unsweetened plant-based milk of choice. I prefer a calcium- fortified soy milk because of it’s nutritional profile (also a good source of protein).
NUT BUTTER: You can also swap in a cashew butter or sunflower butter in this recipe if you don’t have almond butter. You can omit the nut/ seed butter if you want, but the texture will be much more icy than smooth- the fat from the nut butter helps keep the popsicle creamy when it freezes.
4 cup fresh pineapple
2 cup fresh banana
3 Tablespoons almond butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup unsweetened soymilk
- Combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into popsicle molds (makes enough for a mold with 10-12 cavities). Freeze the mixture for at least 4-6 hours, but overnight might be preferred for a full freeze.
- Remove the popsicles from the molds when set and enjoy!
- If you have any leftover mixture, add some ice to the blender and blend until smooth. It’s a tasty little treat you can enjoy while you wait for your popsicles to be ready!
