True story: this past weekend was complete chaos for me. It started with a photo shoot, then a filming of a webisode, and a weekend of scorching heat. I happen to be friends with the people at Melissa’s Produce, so I call my friends over there and ask if I could pick up some green chiles and a few other peppers for my webisode. The head of the marketing department meets me at my car with a few boxes of chiles and a bag of cherries – the sweetest cherries I have ever known!

Cherry Pineapple Paletas

I thought, “Thank the skies above for sweet cherries, they are about to make beautiful paletas!” Those cherries combined with pineapple made my insane weekend seem like a walk in the park with paleta in hand!

Cherry Pineapple Paletas


  • 1 – whole pineapple (peeled and cored)
  • 1/2 – cup cherries (stems removed and pitted) ( I used Melissa’s Produce)
  • 1 – cup sugar
  • 6 – cups water


  1. Cut and peel a whole pineapple. Cut into two inch chunks. Discard pineapple skin, top and bottom.
  2. Pit  cherries, and remove stems.
  3. Place all fruit in a blender with sugar and 2 cups water.
  4. Blend on high till smooth.
  5. Pour liquid through a sieve to collect all the pulpy part of the liquid.
  6. Then in a large pitcher add fruit water and the remaining 4 cups of water. Mix to combine.
  7. Next pour cherry pineapple liquid into paleta / popsicle molds and place them into the freezer for 2 hours.
  8. Pull them out of the freezer and insert sticks. Then place the paletas back into the freezer over night or for a minimum of 8 hours.
