Beating The Summer Heat : Popsicles

Popsicles, Popsicles, & Popsicles

With the Summer heat in full swing, we are always looking for ways to cool down. Popsicles are one great way to beat the heat! My mom purchased these awesome Mickey Mouse popsicle molds from the Disney Store online. If you read my previous post, you know that my daughter is crazy about Mickey Mouse. So I definitely wanted to use these molds the first chance I got! The large ears made it easy for my daughter to hold her popsicle.

I decided to make a healthy version, adding new fruit into the rotation. For us, that meant Kiwi! I didn’t even know how to peel one at first. Thank YouTube! Strawberries and grapes are what I had on hand. Instead of using tap water, I purchased Coconut Water for a little added flavor.

            Ingredients:

  • Fruit (Your Favorites)
  • Coconut Water
  • Popsicle Molds (Mickey Mouse ones are easy for toddlers to hold)
  • Optional: Place spinach and a little water in the blend. Mix to a liquid consistency and add a little to each mold. Giving the popsicles a greenish color.

            Directions:

  • Slice fruit and fill popsicle molds. Fill Coconut Water to the brim and place lids on top. Set the molds in freezer. (I placed my popsicles in the freezer that morning and they were ready for our after dinner treat!) Run molds under warm water for a few minutes in order to get the popsicles out.

Enjoy!
