popsicle treat for those hot summer nights…and days

It’s hot around here and after a long {and fun} day at the pool and park, nothing sounds better to the kids {and me} than a popsicle. Refreshing.

I’m going for the “one for you, one for me,” motto on this one. Below are yummy recipes for the kiddos and for sophisticated adults!

Berry Coconut, recipe via The TomKat Studio

Ingredients
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 can light coconut milk
1 cups water
1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup honey
5 ounce Dixie cups
20-30 Popsicle sticks

How To
Add strawberries, blueberries, coconut milk, water, apple juice and honey in a blender. Carefully pour mixture into your 5 ounce Dixie cups, filling 2/3 of the way.
Place in the freezer for 30 minutes (set your timer), insert your wooden sticks, and continue to freeze until the popsicles are completely frozen, about 6 hours.
When you’re ready to devour, cut and tear the Dixie cups off of the popsicle.
