Summer is in full swing and that means a lot of outdoor time and hydration! One way to beat the heat is with a good old-fashioned popsicle, unfortunately the ones from the grocery store are jam-packed with chemicals and sugars (I read the boxes for an hour). Last month I started experimenting and came up with a few really tasty popsicle recipes! Maybe you saw them on my blog IG page in the stories. I thought you guys would love this, especially my mom readers looking for some healthy options! For the party girls reading this, just add a little vodka, ha!
These recipes are all under 100 calories and are coming with me on walks all summer long!
To prep each recipe just:
1. Combine ingredients in blender; purée until smooth.
2. Pour mixture into ice pop molds.
3. Freeze until solid, at least 8 hours.
You can also layer the colors if you want to get fancy with it.

Orange Mango Coconut Popsicles

Coconut Carrot Popsicles
· 1 can unsweetened coconut milk
· 1 can carrot juice
· ½ cup freshly grated carrot
· ½ cup sugar
· 1 tbsp. grated fresh peeled ginger
· 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
· 1 ¾ cup water
· 1 cup sugar
· 4 kiwis
· ½ cup fresh lime juice
1. Make the syrup: Combine 1 cup of water with the sugar in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil. Set aside to cool.
2. Make the ice pops: Using a paring knife, cut kiwis into quarters, peel, and remove the white core and seeds from each piece. Place the seeded kiwi pieces in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade and purée to a liquid — about 1 minute. Combine the puréed kiwi, 3/4 cup syrup, lime juice, and remaining 3/4 cup of water in a large bowl.
3. Pour the mixture into molds and freeze until solid – 6-8 hours.
