molded cups

My first really summer-y dessert of the summer! I had a pineapple and some cherries to use, so I did what any hard working man in his twenties would do and made boozy ice pops! Perfect way to end that summer barbecue or pool party.

(Boozy) Pineapple, Cherry, and Lime Popsicles:

  • ½ a Ripe Pineapple, cubed
  • Zest of One Lime
  • ¼ cup of Rum (or your choice of alcohol, optional)
  • 5 oz can of Evaporated Milk
  • 1 ½ cup of Pitted Red Cherries
  • ¼ cup of Vodka (optional)
  • 1/3 cup of Granulated Sugar, divided
  • 4-6 drops Red Food Dye (optional)
  • Popsicle molds, or Paper Cups with Popsicle Sticks
  1. Combine the Pineapple, Lime Zest, Rum, Evaporated Milk, and half the Sugar in the work bowl of a food processor. Process until everything is combined into a slush.
  2. Fill your popsicle molds ½ way with the Pineapple mixture, place in the freezer for 40 minutes while you make the Cherry. You want the Pineapple layer to be solid enough that it won’t mix with the Cherry. If you don’t care about that, you can wait less time.
  3. In the cleaned food processor bowl, combine the Pitted Cherries, Vodka, and remaining half of Sugar. Process until everything is combined into a slush.
  4. Once the Pineapple is solid enough for your liking, fill popsicle molds the rest of the way up with Cherry mixture.
  5. Place the sticks/tops on the popsicle mold, and put in the freezer until solid, ~6 hours or overnight.
