Tropical Popsicle Recipe

Seems like homemade Popsicles and ice-cream bars are all the rage this summer. Naturally I had to jump on that bandwagon and get my blend on!

My Trop-Pop popsicles are cool and refreshing and they replace all sorts of electrolytes in your body that a hot summer's day may have depleted. Why? Because rather than just plain water or juice as the blending ingredient, I chose to use coconut water which has been dubbed "Mother Nature's Sports Drink".  Did you know that one serving of coconut water has more potassium than 4 bananas and will hydrate your body like nothing else? Yep. True story!

These Trop-pops are kind of like jumping into a swimming pool on a hot and humid summer day :)
Ahhhhhhhhh! REFRESHING!

Yield - 12 pops

3 cups coconut water
2 cups frozen pineapple
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut
1 cup frozen strawberries

-Add all ingredients into a heavy duty blender and blend until smooth.
-Fill popsicle molds and freeze until solid.

So go ahead and have two...They're good AND good for you!!!

Until we eat again!
