Inspired by Mexican street food treats, these ice pops take a flavor note from adding a chili powder sprinkle to sweet, ripe fruit. The ultimate sweet/spicy/sour combination totally works in these pops. Just be ready for that chili powder kick!

For a kid-friendly version, try citric acid instead of chili powder. The natural powder packs a serious citrus punch, going more sour rather than spice. Read below for the recipe.

1. Fill 4 pop molds evenly with pineapple chunks. Shake 1/2 teaspoon chili powder into the molds and fill to the top with coconut water.

*You may need to adjust liquid volume depending on your pop molds.
