For those long, hot days, a good ol’ popsicle is the perfect remedy to the blistering sunny weather. It was a nice treat for us after a long walk with our furbaby, Teddy. The popsicle was Teddy-approved too! (He got a small piece).
With the abundance of fresh berries available in spring and early summer, I decided to use strawberries and blueberries. These two berries are sweet, tart, full of vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and are just plain delicious. I pretty much eat strawberries and blueberries all the time while they’re are in season.
I’ve always been a big fan of coconut water for its slightly sweet and nutty flavour; although in this recipe the coconut water flavour is secondary to the fruit. Coconut water is also known for its many health benefits. It’s low in calories, but high in natural electrolytes and nutrients.
Overall, these quick to prepare, homemade fruity popsicles are so refreshing, so easy to make, and just plain tasty. This recipe uses only 4 ingredients, is refined sugar-free, gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free and easily be made vegan by using an alternative sweetener such as agave nectar instead of honey. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
