Pinterest is just chock full of amazing ideas, recipes, workouts, and anything and everything you could ever need to know. I stumbled across this popsicle idea and just knew that these had to be made in the summer time. Well, since winter has seemed to last for-ev-er, and summer seems light years away, sooner rather than later was key.

The weather man caught my attention earlier saying  ” … in the 70s monday and tuesday …”.  Um, excuse me? 70s? It was just in the 30s two days ago, but whatever. We’re all used to mother nature’s shenanigans by now anyway. She’s crazy but I will take her hot flashes with open arms! Popsicle season is among us! We shall rejoice! 🙂

These popsicles are refreshing, healthy, and come to a whopping 0pp/popsicle. Yes, ZERO! Guilt-free summer time (or any time) snack!  Get your freeze on …


fruity coconut popsicles:
Servings: 6
Serving Size: 1 popsicle
Points per Serving: 0pp

8oz of coconut water (I used Trader Joes)
1t finely shredded coconut (optional)
any kind of fruit you want/have
popsicle mold

Mix fruit into a large bowl with shredded coconut.  I used blackberries, mandarines, raspberries, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries and pineapple. It’s what I had on hand … think thats enough? 😉 Like me, you will probably have a lot of extra fruit left over. (woohoo fruit salad!)

Divide fruit among a the popsicle molds (mine held 6 popsicles) and add the coconut water into each mold until full. Top with the lids and freeze for 6-8 hours or overnight.
