There’s nothing more refreshing than a cold popsicle on a hot summers day! There are two things that make this sweet treat even better: knowing exactly what’s in the ingredients and making memories with your family. This Fourth of July, be a picnic or backyard BBQ ready with this simple and refreshing organic popsicle recipe you can make with the whole family!

 

4th Of July Coconut Water & Berries popsicle

 

What you’ll need:

  • Popsicle Molds (if you’re in a pinch you can you use popsicle sticks and reusable cups)
  • About 2 ½ cups of organic fruit (for the full fourth of July effect blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries work best)
  • 40 oz of organic coconut water

 

Instructions:

  1. Start by washing the fruit, and your little one’s hands! Once everything is clean, cut the raspberries in half and the strawberries into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Place all of the fruit into your molds. Tip: to recreate the American flag, try putting the raspberries on the bottom then add the strawberries and blueberries. This is a great step for your little one to feel like they’re helping and it gives them a chance to practice color recognition and identification!
  3. After all your fruit has been added, pour in enough coconut water to cover the fruit. Blueberries will float to the top.
  4. Add your popsicle sticks or mold covers and move tray (carefully) to a flat place in the freezer.
  5. For best results freeze overnight and enjoy the next day!
  6. Allow trays to sit out at room temperature for 1-2 minutes for easy removal.

Picky Eater Pro Tip:

If your little one doesn’t love the chunks of fruit try blending all the fruits with a splash of coconut water for a smoother popsicle.
