I am so stoked because I made healthy popsicles for my kids at the YMCA DIY style! Yes I accomplished making healthy popsicles in a cup AND they taste divine and look pretty!!! Mission accomplished 2.0! So I am clearly excited to share with you how exactly I did this.
And the really cool thing is, these popsicles are filled with antioxidants and nutrients that will fight to build your kids immune system (and they won’t even know it!!!) That is, unless you want to make this a family event. YES! You can have fun mixing up different fruits and vegetables to get the flavors you desire.
Now, this is not just for the kiddos, my mom snuck in a popsicle before I even took pictures. So these popsicles are adult friendly too.
Directions for the the Coconut Water and Fruit Popsicle: Pour coconut water into plastic cup leaving about an inch away from the top. Then add in your choice of fruit. I added in blueberries, strawberries and mango. Next, put it into freezer for 4 hours or more. Put in popsicle sticks within the first hour. Pull out and eat!
Warning: The Coconut Water Popsicle are only for people who like the taste of coconut water. It is a very distinct flavor and not favorable for everyone. If you aren’t fond of the coconut water taste, I suggest swapping it out for freshly squeezed orange juice.
Directions for Blended Fruit Popsicles: Add your choice of fruit and or/veggies and coconut water into a blender and BLEND! Pour the mixture into plastic cups (you can even mix up the flavors!) Place popsicle sticks into the mixture. Put in the freezer for 4 hours. Pull out and eat.
