On a hot summer’s day, kids find it hard to resist a yummy and sweet, refreshing popsicle. Unfortunately, most popsicles at the super market are extremely high in sugar and contain high fructose corn syrup, dyes, and other unhealthy ingredients. The good news is your kids don’t have to be deprived; it is simple to make your very own healthy popsicles using just a few natural ingredients. Your kids will absolutely love them!

What you need:

— 1 c. canned coconut milk (no sugar added)

— 1½ c. fresh sliced mango

— 1 Tbs. of honey

— 1 c. water

What you do:

In a blender, mix together the milk, mango, and water. If the mixture appears too thick, add a little more water (1 Tbs. at a time until you reach desired consistency). Add in honey, then blend on high speed for 10-15 seconds. Pour mixture into popsicle trays, then add popsicle stick. Freeze over night; enjoy the next day.
