Strawberry Pineapple Popsicles

These hot summer temps get me every year here in Arizona, and this year especially as we are without a pool in our backyard. I made these simple whole fruit popsicles for the kids the other day. The fruit is refreshing and they are blended with coconut water, which is perfect for hydration!

The primary nutrient in coconut water in potassium, making it a high electrolyte drink. It also contains sodium, magnesium, and calcium. Balancing these electrolytes are essential for staying hydrated and can also help with reducing stress, fatigue, and maintaining muscle relaxation. 

RECIPE

  • 1 cup fresh organic strawberries

  • 1 cup fresh organic pineapple

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened organic coconut water (you may need more if using frozen fruit)

Blend together each fruit separately with 1/4 cup of coconut water until smooth. Layer into popsicle molds and freeze. You can easily adjust the flavor by substituting the fruit for another one.
