Hiii, remember me? I survived exams, am currently experiencing death by university applications (sad face) and am counting down the hours until summer vacation (126 of them, in case you’re wondering!). All of which 100% calls for popsicles!
Full of fresh fruit and a splash of refreshing coconut water, these are basically summer on a stick. They’re Instagram-worthy gorgeous too, and although the rainbow layers do take a little effort, but waiting for each layer to set is the perfect excuse for a little Gilmore Girls, right?!
Try watermelon instead of strawberries, oranges instead of mango or blackberries instead of blueberries if you want to experiment, and if you can’t find or don’t have any coconut water, don’t worry – they’ll taste just as good without it!
PS – this recipe is from my book! If you love it, I’m pretty sure you’ll love all the others in there too – there’s over 100 to try! And if you’ve already got a copy, I would LOVE it if you could leave me a little review on Amazon 🙂
- 125ml coconut water
- a big handful (about 150g) of fresh strawberries, hulled
- 1 mango, peeled and stone removed
- a big handful (about 150g) of fresh pineapple chunks
- 2 kiwis, peeled
- a big handful (about 100g) of fresh blueberries
- Whizz the strawberries with 1 ½ tbsp of coconut water with a stick blender to form a smooth puree, then fill 8 popsicle moulds one-fifth up the way with the strawberry puree. Pop in the freezer for 15 minutes to set.
- Rinse the immersion blender, then whizz the mango flesh with another 1 ½ tbsp coconut water to form a puree and add a layer of mango on top of the strawberry before setting this layer in the freezer to set for 15 minutes.
- Repeat this process, rinsing out the blender between making each puree of fruit and coconut water and letting each layer set for 15 minutes in the freezer before adding the next one, until all of the different fruit purees are used up. Make sure you layer them in the order of strawberries, mengo, pineapple, kiwi and blueberries in order to get the rainbow effect. Once all of the layers are done, pop the popsicles in the freezer for another hour to let them fully set before enjoying!
