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!!!
