Summer is here, and that means pool days, outside fun, popsicles and ice cream! I want my child to enjoy all the fun that life and summer has to offer. However I want to cut out some added sugars if and where I can. Trust me when I say I am not a perfect Mom by any means. These popsicles are just perfect for that!
We love Coconut Water in this house. The regular one and the pineapple flavored one. I had popsicles molds to try some different recipes through the summer and I thought why not use Coconut water as a base, and from there these popsicles where created and my sweet tiny human loves them.
Coconut Water- amount will depend on your molds
Fresh or frozen fruit
I had tons of fruit in the fridge so we used pineapples, strawberries raspberries and black berries. Start with chopping up your fruit. I chopped mine up pretty small because I wanted my toddler to be ok with it, and my molds were pretty small. New molds have been ordered for more popsicles!
Add fruit into each one, then coconut water, more fruit at the top. Take a utensil and mix them a bit so hopefully the fruit will spread out. It really did not take a whole lot of fruit to fill these guys up pretty well. After you fill them up, add in the sticks and they are ready to go in the freezer. Make sure to freeze them for a good 24hrs.
Grab them out of the fridge on a hot day for a yummy treat and enjoy. These are not only a much healthier option, but they are also super hydrating because of the electrolytes in the coconut water. Also Mamas out there they are so great for teething. We absolutely love these popsicles and I can’t wait to try lots of new fun recipes this summer, and of course I will be sharing them!
