I love Pinterest! I’ve found some great recipes there and while most people think that I don’t cook, it’s actually not true; I just don’t cook often. But lately, in an effort to get my health in order, I’ve been trying to eat more home-cooked healthy meals and though I’m not much of a sweets person, every once in a while I get the urge for a little taste of something and a low-calorie, cream pop seemed like just the thing.
So here’s the recipe and you can adjust the amount of pineapple based on preference.
1 can of Coconut milk (I used light)
1 can of crushed pineapple with juice (I found that using a large can will produce a more icy pop result, while using a smaller can will produce a more creamsicle result. I prefer creamy)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large banana
Blend until smooth, pour, freeze, and enjoy at approx 117 calories per pop! The mixture, with a large can yields about 8 pops, cream 6.

I think I’ll try adding rum to mine 🙂
