Berry-Coconut Popsicles

coconutberrypopsicle

This is a another Paleo frozen treat that I make my girls quite often.  The coconut water provides a refreshing coconutty taste, and is full of electrolytes.  And the berries provides just about the right amount of sweetness without any additional sugar.

Really, it is so simple that I hesitate to even call it a recipe.

All you do is take your popsicle molds and fill them with a few berries – use whatever appeals to you – fresh or frozen.  I used a frozen berry blend here that contained blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.  Then you top them up with coconut water.  Make sure you read the ingredients, a lot of coconut waters out there contain added sugar and other ingredients.  I don’t mind the ones that contain additional vitamin C , but I do try to buy 100% coconut water with nothing added if I can.

Then you just need to add the sticks and pop them in the freezer for a few hours until frozen solid.  I usually leave them overnight.

Run the molds under the hot tap for a few seconds and the popsicle should slide right out.

Delicious and very good for you.

  1. Looks delicious! It’s been kind of hot here in England and no aircon in the house makes it so uncomfortable! I haven’t used my popsicle molds since leaving America but might be time to take them out again! 🙂

    • I know what you mean about heat but no aircon… it is pretty hot here in Calgary as well. That is one of the reasons I try to make a frozen treat that the girls can have each day.
