Kiwi-Berry Ice Pops

Fruity Ice PopsHappy 4th of July! At our marina today they are giving away free Otter pops for the holiday. That got me thinking about eating Otter pops at the pool as a kid…

Though I thought they were delicious back then, when I look at them today I see SO many nasty things including high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavoring, red #40, yellow #5 and #6, and blue #1. What ARE all those chemicals doing in our “food” anyway?

Not wanting to be deprived of an icy-treat on this high-80° day, I found these great Silicone Ice Pop Makers and decided to make my own healthy version.

Kiwi-Berry Ice Pops

Packed with vitamin C and other antioxidants, fiber, and potassium, these kiwi-berry ice pops have nothing artificial in them and no added sweeteners, since the berries and kiwis add plenty of sweet goodness themselves.

Ingredients
1 cup of coconut water
2 cups of organic frozen mixed berries
2 kiwis, scooped out of their skin

Directions
Place all ingredients in a Vitamix or blender and blend on high for one minute. Pour into silicon ice pop makers or other popsicle makers. Put in freezer for a few hours, until frozen.

Enjoy your kiwi-berry ice pops, and please leave a comment to let us know what other flavors you create yourself!
