Everything gets sweeter when you freeze it. If your kids are low-sweet like mine, then you will appreciate these pops which are just coconut water and lemon juice. You can make it less sweet by adding water, if you like. These are also great for rehydrating after being sick, food poisoning, surgery, or just in the summer heat. If you like them sour, you can add more lemon juice.
I love silicone pops. These Norpro ones are one my favorite kinds of silicone pop molds. They are very easy to use, and you don’t have to worry about plastic, BPA, or any of those ingredients we all try to avoid. They don’t leak in the freezer, they don’t give any taste to the ice pops. I’ve had them for years!!
Not all coconut waters are the same! Here’s a great article by Food Babe talking about all the kinds, and I link to Harmless Harvest Coconut Water here on my Amazon store. From Food Babe:
Harmless Harvest (organic) – I’ve written about this brand before, and it’s no secret that they are my favorite. I had the pleasure of meeting with the founders of Harmless Harvest and I’m blown away with how open and honest they are about everything. They’ve become a success not because of marketing, but because of their good practices. In fact, they hardly spend any money on marketing at all (and bloggers are not compensated either). They source their young coconuts from small organic agroforestry farms that pay a fair wage to their workers. The coconuts are then frozen and shipped to the U.S. for packaging, after which they use HPP processing to kill bacteria and extend the shelf life to 60 days. Because it’s so minimally processed, some of the waters turn pink when the naturally occurring antioxidants or phenols are exposed to light – and you won’t find this in pasteurized coconut water. You can find this at Whole Foods and most natural food stores in the refrigerator section.
