Pineapple Cream Popsicles

It wasn’t too long ago when an old colleague of mine, and friend had sent me a message on Facebook. Being from Philadelphia, but living in Hawaii now, and I being from Wisconsin, he decided to prompt a friendly bet for an upcoming football game. The Philadelphia Eagles were playing the Green Bay Packers, and the wager was if the Packers won, I would send him some Johnsonville brats, otherwise, he would be sending us fresh pineapples from Hawaii. I typically do not bet all that much, but this was a friendly one, so I agreed.  Needless to say, the Packers crushed the Eagles 53-20, and I kind of felt bad for my friend across the ocean. Regardless to say, I actually forgot about the bet, but a few days later he had sent me a message and asked for my address. Days later, some wonderful looking pineapples arrived.

I’ve never seen pineapples that have looked so awesome. I’m not kidding. They were called Maui Gold, and they were probably, hands down, the best pineapples I have ever eaten. My wife agreed as well. So at first, I was thinking of baking a pineapple upside cake, or some twist on that, but then I decided to make some pineapple popsicles as I daughter loves those types of things.

Pineapple Cream Popsicles

These pineapple cream popsicles are super easy to make, and are really refreshing.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup cream soda
  • popsicle molds

Start by adding the pineapple, milk, and cream soda to your food processor or blender. Process to your liking. I like to keep a bit of texture in mine, but you can go as smooth as you want. Once you are ready, pour into your popsicle molds, and insert the stick.

Place in the freezer for at least three hours.How to make pineapple cream popsicles

When you are ready to serve, run a mold under warm water for about 30 seconds, then gently pull out the popsicle.

The end result is this fantastic popsicle, that is slightly creamy from the milk and cream soda, but really the pineapple shines here. Sweet, with little bits of pineapple coming through really makes for a really great post workout delight.

Now I will have to remember to wage more bets with my friend moving forward! Hope you enjoy, and thanks again for the Packers win!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
