Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen dark sweet cherries, pitted
  • 1/3 cup + 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 Tablespoons simple syrup*

Instructions

  1. In a blender, or food processor, puree pineapple chunks with 1/3 cup pineapple juice and 1 tablespoon simple syrup. Transfer puree into another container.

  2. Wash and clean out blender. Puree cherries with remaining 1/2 cup pineapple juice and 2 tablespoons simple syrup. Transfer puree into another container.

  3. Both mixtures will be rather thick. Use a spoon to alternate adding pineapple and cherry mixtures to popsicle mold. Cover popsicle mold with foil*. Insert wooden sticks in the mold. Place mold in freezer for at least 3 hours until popsicles are solid.

  4. To remove popsicles form mold, submerge mold into room temperature water for 15-30 seconds. Popsicles should slide out easily.

To make simple syrup: 

  1. Combine equal parts water and granulated sugar in a sauce pot. Bring to a boil and cook until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Keep chilled in the fridge until ready to use.
