Ingredients:

  • 8-10 whole strawberries
  • 1/2-1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup of sugar-free coconut water

Equipment

  • Popsicle mold
  • Popsicle sticks

Directions

  1. Slice strawberries thinly enough to fit into your popsicle mold.
  2. Arrange the strawberries and blueberries in your mold, being careful not to smash them in the process.
  3. Add enough coconut water to almost fill the mold (leaving a little space from the top to accommodate for expansion).
  4. Insert popsicle sticks into your filling and place the mold in the freezer for 4-6 hours.
  5. When you’re ready to enjoy, remove the mold from the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes. Or, if you’re in a hurry, run warm water over the outside of the mold to loosen the pops.

Notes

  • If you don’t have (or like) fresh strawberries and blueberries, you can substitute just about any other fresh fruit: grapes, kiwi fruit, pineapple, mangoes, peaches, or cherries are just a few that will work. These pops are infinitely adaptable!
  • In a pinch, you could even use fruit that has been frozen, though your finished product might not have quite the same aesthetic appeal.
  • Sugar content varies among different brands of coconut water, so be sure to pay attention to the nutrition facts when you buy. Pick a product that will be both enjoyable to you and well suited to your individual nutrition goals.
