With only three ingredients, these strawberry kiwi ice pops will be a big hit this summer.

Strawberries are a favorite at our house. We go through several quarts a week, so we always have them on hand and try to stock up when the price is right! Although chocolate covered are my favorite, the kids love my strawberry kiwi ice pops!  Nothing is better on a hot summer day than a homemade, ice cold, and (every parent’s favorite) healthy treat! Plus, they are super easy to make! All you need are fresh strawberries, kiwis, and coconut water. We all know how healthy fruits are but the reason I use coconut water is that’s it’s packed with electrolytes and minerals, which the kids will need to beat the summer heat.

I like to make these in the evening, after dinner and baths, when we are calming down and getting ready for bed. And although I might also be exhausted, this is a quick and easy ice pop recipe. Plus, by making it in the evening, it can remain in the freezer overnight. That means I won’t get asked every three minutes if the ice pops are ready yet!

With only three ingredients, these strawberry kiwi ice pops will be a big hit this summer.

 

First you blend the strawberries and coconut water together for about 30 seconds in a blender, and pour it directly into your paper cups, filling them up about three quarters.

next, put your craft sticks in the center of the cups and place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes

while freezing the first layer, blend your kiwis and coconut water together for another 30 seconds and pour over your strawberry layer (this is a perfect time to make sure your craft sticks are sticking straight up)

freeze for 3-4 hours or overnight and pop one out whenever you’re craving a little something sweet or something to cool you down on a hot summer day!

With only three ingredients, these strawberry kiwi ice pops will be a big hit this summer.

 

While you can use disposable paper cups and sticks, also try these amazing ice pop molds! Made of BPA Plastic and environmentally friendly! And we like using this coconut water, but you can also try juice or a carbonated lemon lime beverage such as Sprite!

    Can we substitute coconut with something else? We have nut allergies in our classroom.

      Absolutely! You can certainly substitute coconut water and just use plain water, juice or a carbonated beverage like Sprite.

      Although you may be allergic to peanuts, cashew , almonds etc. You can drink coconut water , it’s not a botanical nut. It’s extremely good for you especially if you drink it directly from the fruit.

    I don’t think coconuts are actually nuts at all. They are fruits. 🙂

    Coconut is not a nut. My child had peanut and tree nut allergies. Coconut doesn’t count. Unless of course the children have been specifically tested for coconut allergy and they in fact have an allergy to coconut. But if not, they will be fine.

    I love the look of these. I bet that I can use those “over-ripe” fruits, too. I make banana muffins when bananas are a little too ripe, bet I threw out ripe kiwi last week. I bet they would be great because the more ripe, the more sweet. Thanks!
