Summer is in full swing here in the Powell home, and we’re embracing everything it has to offer! Arizona is hot, hot, hot, so I’m always looking for ways to keep my little pack cool and hydrated. Popsicles are a favorite around here, and the ones I’m sharing today are the perfect way to keep the kids happy with a sweet treat, but also give them something healthy that’s packed with nutrients for their growing bodies.
These Popsicle are so great because they’re not only easy to make, but totally versatile. You can use a variety of different fruits and change it up every time if you want to. They’re Cashman’s favorite, and he would eat them all in one sitting if I let him! My little peeps love helping me in the kitchen, and this recipe was made just for that! You can whip these up in no time, and soon you’ll be on your way to enjoying this cool, refreshing treat by the pool.
What you’ll need:
Each recipe makes 8 Popsicles
– 2 cups coconut water
– 2 cups fruit (today we’re going festive for the 4th with strawberries and blueberries)
– Popsicle molds
That’s it! I told you these were easy!
What you’ll do:
– Cut up your fruit into small pieces
– Place fruit in the Popsicle molds to about ¾ full
– Pour the coconut water over the fruit, filling it the rest of the way
– Freeze for about 5-8 hours
*I do have 2 kiddos that prefer these to be blended up so they are more like a smoothie. Simply put everything into a blender, mix it all up, pour the mixture into the molds, freeze, and you’ve got yourself a mixed berry pop!

Just for fun, I looked for some new Popsicle molds to change things up and I found the cutest stuff! Check out my faves:
Monster molds that stand up on their own? Yes please!
These Mickey Mouse molds are easy for little hands to hold on to, and will be sure to make your kids smile.
Jelly Belly pop molds have a no drip handle which means no extra mess for us Moms to clean up!
I don’t think I’d be ashamed one bit rocking a fresh fruit Popsicle in a monster mold. Never too cool for some silly tastiness!
