Fruity Popsicles

Hi Fitsters! This is Eleanor from imagineats.com! Because both of us love fun and easy recipes that are healthy and delicious, Aimee has invited me to share one of my go-to Summer recipes with you all!

I’ve chosen to try out these fresh fruit popsicles made with unsweetened coconut milk, and they are absolutely refreshing. The taste is very light and can be bland (takes time to get used to), but it really depends on your choice of fruits since they will act as the main sweetener. Originally I was going to use coconut water to make this, however I didn’t realize my coconut went bad (hah)! I guess when life takes away your coconuts, you use coconut milk instead! You can choose to use either one – be creative, the imagination is all yours! Do keep in mind that if you want to see the actual fruits in your popsicles, I’d recommend using coconut water as it will freeze with a transparency.

Popsicle molds

I got these cute little popsicle molds from Ikea for only $1.99! I was hesitant at first because I wasn’t sure of the quality but it turned out great so I’d highly recommend it rather than spending a fortune on other molds. I love finding bargains that work and this definitely got me super excited.

Due to the small size of the popsicle mold, you don’t need that many fruits in one.

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup blueberries
  2. 1/4 cup raspberries
  3. 4 medium strawberries, sliced
  4. 1/2 kiwi, cubed
  5. 1.5 cups of unsweetened coconut milk or coconut water
Instructions
  1. Fill each popsicle mold with a mixture of the fruits. I would recommend filling up about 2/3 of the popsicle mold. ( Make sure you still have some room for the coconut milk/coconut water to hold fruits together.)
  2. Measure about 1.5 cups of coconut milk/coconut water and fill each popsicle mold then insert the handles back into their designated slots.
  3. Stick it in the fridge for about 4-5 hours if you want to eat it within the same day or leave them in the fridge overnight.
  4. To easily remove your popsicle from the mold, run with lukewarm water. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. You can be very flexible with the fruit choices and add in whatever you'd like! If you have some leftover fruits in the end like me, use it to make fruit infused water in a bottle instead and save it for later.
