Beat the summer heat with these Strawberry Mango Chia Popsicles! Fresh fruit, chia seeds, and coconut water is all you need to whip up these hydrating pops.
It has been RIDICULOUSLY hot here in Utah. Like triple digits hot! So I bought a popsicle mold and couldn’t wait to use it! All of my old popsicle molds were from the dollar store, and just weren’t cutting it, so I got rid of them a while ago and hadn’t replaced them until now.
This new one makes me feel like I’m a pro popsicle maker at home! Haha. So, I had to break it in with a DE-LICIOUS new recipe!
The thing I love about making homemade popsicles is that you can make them much healthier than the store-bought alternatives. Plus you can customize the flavors to your likings.
This recipe for Strawberry Mango Chia Popsicles uses fresh (organic) fruit, chia seeds, and coconut water. All of the ingredients have health benefits. Fiber, protein, healthy carbs…
The coconut water even has electrolytes like a sports drink, but in a more natural way, so I know me and my kids are cooling down with something healthy and not something full of sugars and chemicals.
I also love the two-toned/marbled look of these chia popsicles from pouring the strawberry and mango purees in the popsicle molds separately. They totally have the “fun” factor of store-bought pops!
