Fruity Ice Pops
It’s hot out there and we have the perfect solution: ICE POPS! There is nothing more refreshing than something ice cold on a hot, sunny day. Am I right? These easy to put together ice pops are healthy, have no added sugars, and contain electrolytes.
Mangos are in season through July and August in Florida, and most all berries can be found in stores all year long. You can use any fruits you like, we just recommend staying away from fruits that brown like apples, pears, and bananas.
For the liquid we are using coconut water which has a boost of electrolytes and light sweetness. Adding water or juice is also an option, just be mindful of any added sugars in the juice.
You will need a set of 6 popsicle molds for this recipe. Large fruits should be sliced about 1/4 inch thickness.
- 1 quart Coconut Water
- 1 cup Strawberries, rinsed and sliced
- 4 Kiwi fruits, peeled and sliced
- 1 medium Mango, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup Blueberries or Raspberries, rinsed
- Set your popsicle mold on a flat work surface.
- Add fruit till half full in each mold. Pro tip – Arranging the fruit slices against the sides of the mold make for a pretty look when frozen.
- Pour coconut water to fill each mold 1/4 inch from the top (allowing room for expansion).
- Place popsicle sticks and covers on top of molds. Tap the molds gently on the work surface to release any air bubbles.
- Place on a level surface in the freezer for 4 hours or overnight.
- Remove from freezer about 5 minutes before serving for easy unmolding.
