Summer is in full swing! When the temps begin to warm, some of my favorite treats to cool off with are smoothies, fruit, iced drinks, and....popsicles. A lot of store bought popsicles are loaded with refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial coloring, and plenty of other fake ingredients. Rather than stocking your freezer with these sugar loaded pops, try making a batch of these delicious Tropical Popsicles made from real ingredients.
With just a few simple ingredients and 5 minutes prep time (plus freeze time) you will have a tasty treat to cool off with waiting in your freezer. All you'll need is a medium size pineapple, one mango, agave, coconut milk, water, and a few popsicle molds (full recipe below).
Blend the ingredients until smooth, then fill your molds and let chill in the freezer for about 7 to 8 hours. Popsicle making isn't rocket science. Feel free to play around in your kitchen and test out additional ingredients. Maybe add some strawberries, replace the mango with blueberries, add a pinch of pure vanilla extract...the sky is the limit! I do recommend trying this full recipe out first though because it was awfully tasty. I really feel as though the essence of summer was perfectly captured all in one pop.
Unlike traditional popsicles from the store, these are packed with vitamins and minerals from real fruit. Both pineapple and mango are loaded with vitamin C. Did you know that adding pineapple to your diet has the ability to promote a healthy gut, aid in skin repair, and may reduce inflammation? Fruits are incredibly nourishing for our bodies and are sweetened to perfection naturally.
While the temps are still warm, make sure to give this recipe a try for yourself! Check out the full recipe below.
