Healthy Eats: Berry Popsicles

  
As we enjoy the hot days of summer it is essential to stay hydrated! I remember as kid I use to love when the ice cream truck drove through our neighborhood so I could get my favorite popsicles. Most of those sweet treats however are loaded with sugar and have no nutritional value. 

No worries though… Try my Berry Popsicle recipe that is a healthy version of your favorite childhood treat. They are easy to make, tasty, refreshing, and are made with real fruit and coconut water that gives you nutrients and keeps you hydrated!

All you need is a blender and popsicle holders. I use my nutribullet to blend and I found these popsicle holders at my local dollar store.

   
 
Ingredients:

* 1/2 banana

* 1 handful of berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)

* 1/2 cup coconut water

* 1/2 cup almond milk

Procedures:

1 — Place a few slices of berries into each popsicle holder.

2 — Put all ingredients together and blend using a traditional blender or nutribullet.

3 — Pour blended mix into popsicle holders, freeze for 4-6hrs, then serve.

    
My popsicles turned out great and I hope yours will too! You can always modify this recipe by using some of your other favorite fruits like lemons and oranges. Making this treat is also a fun activity that you can do with your family. Share your own versions of this recipe in the comments below.
