Rainbow Coconut Water Ice Lollies

by Alessandra Peters from The Foodie Teen

These fresh fruit and coconut ice lollies make for the perfect refreshment on a hot day. With no added sugar, these lollies are naturally sweet so are great for kids.


Made with just fresh fruit and a splash of refreshing coconut water, these rainbow popsicles are defi nitely worth the time and effort! Using fruit purees packs them with flavour, fibre and nutrition, so they’re a much better option than the usual sugar-loaded, artificially coloured ice lollies. Use watermelon instead of strawberries, oranges instead of mango or blackberries instead of blueberries if you wish, and if you can’t find any coconut water, don’t worry
about it – they’ll taste just as good without.
