Pineapple, Lime, and Banana Popsicles | This is so good...After a hard day of summer yard work, I love to plop down on the deck, admire my work, and eat some good food.  Sometimes that means BBQ and a glass of iced tea, but most often it means a tasty treat!  These Pineapple, Lime, and Banana Popsicles fit the bill perfectly.

As a treat, I love something cold and refreshing and that’s where my ice cream maker and popsicle molds (these are BPA-free) come into play.  These are must haves in any real foodies kitchen.  Think of all the possibilities – creamy ice creams, light sorbets, and POPSICLES!  Want to feel like a kid again?  Grab a popsicle, kick off your shoes, and go sit in the grass – happiness!

Pineapple, Lime, and Banana Popsicles are the latest creation to come from my freezer.  They are creamy and light at the same time.  The best part?  NO crappy ingredients – no food dyes, no artificial flavors, no added sugars.  You can feel good about this treat!

I decided to use coconut water in this recipe because I keep hearing about how good it is for you – great for re-hydration due to the water and electrolyte contents, it’s high in potassium and magnesium, and it has cytokinins which have been shown to have anti-aging and anti-cancer effects on human cells (1).  All good things when I’ve been sweating it out in the sun for a few hours.  I’ve tried to drink it straight up, but I’m just not a huge fan of the taste (despite being a huge coconut fan!).  By blending it into this popsicle, I can disguise the taste and still reap all the benefits – yay!

Ingredients
  1. 1 banana (use green tipped for less sweetness or ripe for more sweetness and to keep the recipe SCD-legal)
  2. 1 avocado
  3. 1 lime, zested and juiced
  4. 8 ounces of coconut water
  5. 1/3 cup diced pineapple (I used Trader Joe’s frozen pineapple)
Instructions
  1. Combine the banana, avocado, coconut water, and lime juice in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Add in the pineapple and lime zest. Pulse a few time to chop up the pineapple. If you prefer a smooth texture to your popsicles, blend until the pineapple is fully incorporated.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
  4. I had a little extra mixture left over, so I poured it into an ice cube tray and froze it into little bites for quick snacks!
  5. Enjoy!!
