If you’ve ever tried any of my popsicle recipes, you know that each frozen pop serves an ultimate purpose. I started making homemade ice pops when Pea was three. She was on several medications to manage her Juvenile Arthritis.
It was a dark time in our household. There were daily morning and evening battles as I tried everything I could think of to get her medicine down. Most often, it would end up everywhere–except inside her. That is, until I came up with my popsicle mom hack. The rest is history.
The frozen fruit pop recipes in our house evolved from being a yummy medicine hack into multi tasking treats. They keep us cool during the Florida summer and they help us stay healthy, along with preventative care.
I am a big supporter of preventative healthcare and proper nutrition for keeping our kids healthy. It breaks my heart to think of the 283,000 Florida children that are living without health and dental insurance, especially since it is estimated that over 172,000 are actually eligible for free or discounted insurance through Florida KidCare. Florida parents may not realize that even if one or both parents work, their kids are still eligible. If you live in Florida or have friends and family that do, make sure to get the facts and apply now by clicking here.
Our pediatrician completely agrees with me when it comes to immune supporting snack and treats. Nutrition is the key to good health.
This recipe not only boosts our immune systems, it’s packed with fiber and bromelain, which supports overall health and digestion. Plus, it’s ridiculously easy to make and everyone loves it. Bonus!
Easy pineapple popsicle recipe
- Fresh pineapple (preferably from a local source)
- Coconut water (optional)
Make sure you check Ibotta for rebates before going to the grocery store!
Wait for it… cut up pineapple.
Put it in a food processor. Process for 15-20 seconds.
Spoon into popsicle molds.
Remove from molds and enjoy! If they are difficult to remove simply wet the popsicle mold with running water for a few seconds and they should slide right out.
Your kids won’t even be able to tell that you didn’t add sugar. Mine love them. And I adore the fact that these popsicles help support their immune and digestive systems. My son likes to have one an hour before a soccer game for that extra bit of fuel.
After a long day at school, we head to the park to get in some play time. But 2:00-3:00pm Est in Florida (except for during our short “winter”) is brutal. A popsicle tastes so much better when you are hot a sweaty!
And if you live in Florida and haven’t already looked into Florida KidCare for your kids, do it today by applying here! Health and dental insurance is affordable for every child in this state.
