Loaded with lots of fresh fruit and frozen in coconut water 🌈, they are a great sweet treat you can feel good about giving to your toddlers and kids.
They take minutes to make and are a great treat to have ready in your freezer when you are having fun in the sun ☀️!
Rainbow Fruit: you can use whatever fruit you have on hand, it doesn’t have to be the full rainbow of colors for these popsicles to work. For toddlers and younger kids, I would recommend you chopping the fruit so that they don’t get a huge piece of frozen fruit when they are eating the popsicles. Here are some options in case you want to go for the full rainbow effect –
❤️ RED: strawberries, raspberries, cherries
🧡 ORANGE: mandarin oranges,
💛 YELLOW: mango, pineapple,
💚GREEN: kiwi, grapes,
💙 BLUE: blueberries
💜 PURPLE: blackberries, purple grapes
- Coconut Water: Coconut water adds some sweetness to these popsicles without the need for added sugar. It contains very little fat and good amounts of potassium, magnesium and vitamin C. It’s a great way to hydrate during the hot summer months. You can use any brand of coconut water you prefer, but look for a brand without added sugar.
- Honey: using honey is optional and to be honest, most of the time I skip it because the coconut water is naturally sweet. But if you want a sweeter popsicle, then you can add it in.
- Chop the fruit to bite-size pieces.
- Place the fruit into the popsicle molds in any order you want.
- If using honey, mix the honey and coconut water together. Feel free to omit the honey.
- Pour the coconut water into the molds, gently tapping the mold on the counter or gently squeezing the mold to get rid of any air bubbles.
- Insert the popsicle mold stick.
- Place the popsicle molds into the freezer.
