Cocoa Colada Ice Pops

These creamy pops taste just like a sweet summer drink on a stick. The cocoa nibs add crunch and a touch of bitterness that contrasts nicely[ with the sweetness of the coconut milk and pineapple.]

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 a 4-pound pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa nibs
Directions

Special equipment: four 4-ounce ice-pop molds or six 3-ounce molds, 4 or 6 ice-pop sticks

Cook the coconut milk, sugar and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely melted, about 5 minutes. Let cool completely at room temperature, at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, roughly chop 3/4 of the pineapple half (you should have a heaping 2 cups of chopped pineapple). Cut the remaining pineapple into 1/3-inch pieces (about the size of a large corn kernel).

Puree the cooled coconut milk mixture and roughly chopped pineapple in a blender until completely smooth, scraping down the sides partway through if needed. Transfer the mixture to a large liquid measuring cup with a pouring spout. Stir in the remaining pineapple pieces and the cocoa nibs.

Pour the mixture into the molds, leaving 1/4 inch of space at the top (the mixture will expand). Insert the sticks. Freeze until solid, 5 hours to overnight. Unmold, and enjoy immediately.
