This is my submission for Go Ahead Honey, it’s Gluten Free: Cream of the Crop, Dairy Free Delights hosted by the lovely Zoe over at Z’s Cup of Tea.
Today is going to be ninety something degrees. It’s only 9am and my children are already asking for popsicles. It’s really fun eating them but it’s just as much fun to make them. So, we broke out the popsicle molds. We tried a new recipe using fresh strawberries I just picked up at the market. I used some coconut water - which is naturally so good for you. It’s super hydrating (in this heat!) and it’s full of electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorous. Not that you needed an excuse to try these popsicles! Side note: Try replacing sugary sports drinks with coconut water – it’s fantastic.
- Coarsely chop strawberries and put in the blender with coconut milk, coconut water and honey. Pulse for only about 10 seconds – so it’s still quite chunky.
- Evenly divide fruit mixture between popsicle molds (mine makes 4). Let freeze (upright) for at least 4 hours. To loosen them, simply run the mold under a bit of warm water.
