Stay Cool and Hydrated with Coconut Water Fruit Popsicles

coconut-water-popsicleThe temperature has been very hot in Georgia. The temperatures have been in the 90’s and the 100 degree mark is coming; it’s only a matter of time.

A coconut water fruit Popsicle is a healthy treat and is a good way to stay cool and hydrated on those hot summer days.

My daughter enjoyed helping make these Popsicle. I had never done anything like this before, but she was a good helper.

One of the things I made sure to do was to use one of her favorite fruits (strawberries) and colorful Popsicle molds.

Why Coconut Water?

Coconut water:

  • is low in calories
  • is cholesterol free
  • is fat free (the brand I used)
  • has less sugar than most sports drinks, sodas and fruit juices
  • is high in potassium
  • is very hydrating
  • helps keep the body cool

Let’s Make Some Popsicles

You can use coconut water only, but how fun would that be? I learned how to make these popsicles from Ms. Carolyn Akens. It is one of the recipes that Carolyn included in the Summer detox program.

You will need:

  • coconut water
  • fruit of your choice
  • Popsicle molds
  • and a good freezer.

I used blueberries, strawberries and kiwi for the fruit.

Directions:

  • Wash your fruit.
  • Cut up your fruit in bite size pieces
  • Add fruit to the Popsicle molds.
  • Pour coconut water in molds. Leave a little space for the popsicle stick to fit and so that coconut water does not overflow.
  • Place Popsicle molds in the freezer and freeze until solid.
  • Remove Popsicle mold from freezer and enjoy!

Be creative and have fun!

    This is a lovely idea! I love coconut water but the kids don’t, unfortunately. So, what better way to encourage them to drink coconut – cool popsicles, of course! 😀 Thanks for sharing.

    It’s really hot here in India as well, I guess I should try it too to get some relief in summer.
