While the sun seems to have left us temporarily, we like to remain optimistic here at Fruit Towers. While we await the big yellow orb in the sky to make its return, we’ve been getting prepared by making these fruity, naturally hydrating ice pops. There’s a COOL idea. Geddit? Ice lollies? Cold? COOL idea? Nevermind.
Have a go at the recipe below, here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 litre of coconut water
- Fresh berries of your choice. We used 2 kiwis, 200g of strawberries and 200g of raspberries but you can use whatever tickles your fancy. Don’t forget to add in some extra for essential snacking.
- 8 plastic ice pop moulds OR you can go DIY and use plastic cups and popsicle sticks.
Once you have all your tasty ingredients chopped and at the ready you can get down to making your ice pops.
All you have to do is place whatever mixture of fruit chunks you want in the mould or plastic cup and pour in your coconut water. Just make sure there’s enough coconut water in the mould so that the fruit chunks will freeze together in one ice pop shaped ice cube.
Pop them in the freezer and after 2-3 hours you’ll have a tasty, fruity, hydrating ice pop to cool you down after a day in the sun. Easy peasy.
