Healthy Tropical Candy Corn Ice Pops

Whole fruit ice pops that look like candy corn make a healthy Halloween treat.

My girls absolutely love candy corn. They are certainly cute, but most brands are also filled with sugar, GMO ingredients, and artificial colors... ick! Over the weekend I made a batch of tropical ice pops that resemble the kids' favorite Halloween candy, but are actually organic, gluten free, vegan, and packed with healthy nutrients. The girls were so excited to see these in the freezer.

To make the white layer, I used a can of coconut milk and sweetened it with a few drops of stevia. After that layer froze, I blended frozen pineapple and a little water (pineapple juice would be even yummier) for a yellow layer and let that freeze. For the last orange layer, I blended frozen peaches with orange juice. Mango would also work here.

The result is a fun Halloween treat that tastes tropical and delicious. Without any scary ingredients.

 Here is the mold I use, but if you would like to make smaller pops, mini paper cups work well too.




Healthy Tropical Candy Corn Ice Pops


Whole fruit ice pops that look like candy corn make a healthy Halloween treat.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Yield: 10 large pops, or twice as many small pops

Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut milk (from a 15 oz. can)
  • 5 drops liquid stevia, to taste (plain or vanilla)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup orange juice or water
Cooking Directions
  1. Sweeten coconut milk to taste with a few drops of stevia. Fill about 1/3 of the ice pop molds or small paper cups with coconut milk. Insert popsicle sticks and cover with pop mold cover or plastic wrap. Place in the freezer to freeze completely.
  2. In a blender, puree pineapple with just enough water to blend until thick and smooth. Fill the second third of the ice pop mold with the pineapple. Freeze.
  3. Blend frozen peaches with enough orange juice to blend. Fill the pop molds the rest of the way up. Freeze.
  4. Release pops by running briefly under warm water (don't forget to collect that water to reuse in your garden, etc.) Enjoy!
