Step 1: Blend the Ingredients
Put the pineapple, cucumbers, mint, coconut water, sugar and lime juice in a blender. Mix until smooth, or for about 1 minute.
Step 2: Pour the Mixture into Molds
Pour the juice mixture into the molds, filling to the top line of each mold so the popsicles will be level.
Step 3: Insert the Popsicle Sticks
To keep the popsicle sticks from floating around in the molds, soak them in warm water for 5–10 minutes before inserting. Then, place the lid on the mold and insert the sticks, making sure they are straight and even.
Step 4: Freeze the Popsicles
Place the filled molds in the freezer for at least 6 hours. When they are firm and ready to be removed, run the bottom of the mold under warm water for about 20–30 seconds. Gently grip the handles and pull upward to get a clean popsicle. Enjoy!
If the popsicles still won't budge, place them in a warm water bath for 1–2 minutes until they loosen. Leftover popsicles should be placed in a sealed bag or container.
