Pineapple Pops

pineapple pops - emi ito illustrationDuring my decluttering efforts as part of the Throw Out 100 Things Challenge, I came across some old Martha Stewart Everyday Food issues with delicious looking recipes.  These pineapple pops seem perfect for a hot August day.  Enjoy! Also, I'm apparently way behind the times because I just realized that Everyday Food is no longer sold in print (since 2013...yikes!) and is now in video.

Pineapple Pops (from Martha Stewart Everyday Food Sept. 2005)

Prep: 15 mins Total Time: 4 hours 15 mins Servings: 8

Ingredients:

- 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks, (or one 14.5-ounce can chunks packed in juice, drained) - 1/3 cup milk - 1/4 cup sugar

Steps:

1) In a food processor, combine pineapple chunks, milk, and sugar; pulse until almost smooth, with some chunks of pineapple remaining.

2) Pour half the mixture into a medium bowl (or a glass measuring cup for easy pouring). Pulse remaining mixture until completely smooth; add to mixture in bowl.

3) Divide evenly among eight 3-ounce molds or paper cups, and insert wooden sticks. Freeze until solid, at least 4 hours or up to 2 weeks (cover with plastic wrap).

Note: To make chunks, peel, quarter, and core a small pineapple (about 1 pound). Cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, then cut into 1/4-inch pieces.
