Ingredients

  • 3 cups (12 oz) frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 ½ cups pineapple juice
  • blackberry syrup, as needed (recipe follows below)

Blackberry Syrup:

  • 3 oz fresh blackberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup water

Instructions

  • Prepare blackberry syrup ahead of time. Place fresh blackberries, sugar, and water in a small sauce pot. Set over medium heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Use a muddler or fork to break up the blackberries. Allow mixture to cool before straining. Keep in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • In a blender (or food processor), pulse together frozen pineapple and pineapple juice until smooth.
  • Alternate adding one to two tablespoons of pineapple mixture and one teaspoon blackberry syrup inside popsicle mold until full. Cover mold and insert wooden stick into each cavity. Freeze for at least 4 hours until frozen solid.

Notes

  • I use these popsicle molds from Amazon.com
  • The blackberry syrup recipe makes more than needed for these popsicles. Save leftovers to sweeten iced teas, or pour over fruits, ice cream, waffles, etc.
