I love summer! But sometimes it just gets too hot, so we want something refreshing. I found these popsicles and I tried them. They taste yummy! So let’s start! 🙂
1. Chocolate Covered Kiwi Popsicles.
6 large kiwis, peeled using this method, cut into 1/3″-1/2″ thick rounds
1 cup dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut oil
popsicle sticks or lollipop sticks.
Slice the peeled kiwis into rounds with a lollipop stick in each one. Place on a tray lined with wax paper or parchment. Freeze for at least 4 hours and up to 48 hours.
In a glass bowl, melt the chocolate and the coconut oil over a pan of simmering water. You can also melt this in the microwave at no more than 50% power for 15-30 seconds at a time.
Dip each frozen kiwi into the melted chocolate. The chocolate will harden within a few moments of being dipped. Eat immediately or re-freeze.
2. Mango Popsicles.
1 cup frozen mango pieces
1 lge tub of vanilla bean yogurt
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp freshly chopped mint (from my garden)
Horizon organics reduced fat milk.
Put the first four ingredients into a blender. Top with milk. Blend.
Now, before you get all eager to pour it into your fancy smoothie cup, pull out your popsicle molds. Spoon a little of the mixture into the molds and freeze. Enjoy!
1/3 cup diced kiwi
1/3 cup diced watermelon
1/3 cup diced strawberries
1/3 cup diced pineapple
1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice or orange juice.
Combine diced fruit in a bowl and fill each 5 oz cup with fruit. Add 1 tbsp of juice and insert craft sticks into each cup. They easily stay in place because of all the fruit. Place in the freezer a few hours until firm. To remove the pops from the cups, run under warm water a few seconds. Enjoy!
