If you’ve got a ripe pineapple handy…I’ve got a recipe for you! Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. I especially love it grilled, and I absolutely love these Pineapple Paletas. These paletas will most definitely be a regular in my home this summer! They’re light and refreshing and they’re a perfect healthy snack to treat yourself to!
I adapted this recipe from the spicy pineapple pops recipe in my Paletas cookbook. Their recipe called for jalapeno pepper and some crushed red peppers. I don’t know about you – but a popsicle spiked with jalapeno and other chili peppers just doesn’t sound all that appealing to me, so I kept things simple. I like simple. Simple recipes – simple tastes.
These Pineapple Paletas aren’t your usual run-of-the-mill sugary sweet popsicle. They’re all natural and the little pieces of fruit in them make them a tad exoctic!!
I hope you love them as much we do!!!
