Coconut Ice Pops
Everyone needs a refreshing treat once in a while. By once in a while I mean once a day haha. I am all about splurging on sugar and "bad for you things" on the weekends but during the week I try to keep it in check as much as possible. That means that I've been eating a lot of frozen grapes, watermelon, and healthy popsicles. When you make something, you know what goes into it and can control the amount of "fake" things in it. I try to stay away from dairy as much as possible during the week so coconut milk is the perfect popsicle addition. Try these out with the recipe below.
1/4 cup strawberries
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
14 oz. coconut water (I use Harmless Coconut)
14 oz. can of organic coconut milk
Juice of 2 limes
Place the coconut water, coconut milk, lime juice, and shredded coconut into a blender. Blend on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Pour the contents of the blender into ice pop molds.
Slice the strawberries and put a couple in each ice pop mold. Drop a few blueberries into each mold as well.
Place sticks inside and freeze overnight.
