Healthy Ice Pop Recipe

Our pool is officially open! My kids love eating popsicles on hot days. Most store bought popsicles are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, sugar and artificial dyes. I wanted a healthy alternative to sugary ice pops, so I created this Healthy Ice Pop Recipe.

This recipe is full of healthy fruit and coconut water. The coconut water will help re-hydrate your body and the fruit offers plenty of vitamins. It’s a great poolside treat or a quick, healthy snack. It’s super easy to make too! 

Healthy Ice Pop Recipe

Tools you need: 

  • Two Ice Cube Trays

  • Blender or Food Processor

Ingredients: 

  • 2 Cups Frozen Fruit (I used the tropical mix with mango, pineapple and strawberry but you can use any kind you like)’
  • 1 large Banana
  • 2 Cups Coconut Water
  • 2 tsp. Honey or Agave syrup (use Agave syrup to make this a vegan recipe)

Directions: 

  • Place all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until smooth

    • LOL! The ice cube trays have a strange shape, that’s for sure. They work perfectly for these little ice pops though. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Woah! Those look delicious, for sure. I’d just have one problem, the coconut water. Coconut is absolutely disgusting to me…so, I think I’d have to substitute that. I love the details you put into this, I need extra help, as I tend to mess up when I’m in the kitchen 🙂
