Trop-Pops

Tropical Popsicle Recipe

Seems like homemade Popsicles and ice-cream bars are all the rage this summer. Naturally I had to jump on that bandwagon and get my blend on!

My Trop-Pop popsicles are cool and refreshing and they replace all sorts of electrolytes in your body that a hot summer’s day may have depleted. Why? Because rather than just plain water or juice as the blending ingredient, I chose to use coconut water which has been dubbed “Mother Nature’s Sports Drink”.  Did you know that one serving of coconut water has more potassium than 4 bananas and will hydrate your body like nothing else? Yep. True story!

These Trop-pops are kind of like jumping into a swimming pool on a hot and humid summer day 🙂
Ahhhhhhhhh! REFRESHING!

  1. These look perfect for the insane heat of the past couple weeks.

  2. I love the name, you could market them and the name is so catchy! The pops sound so refreshing and delicious.

    • LOL. Thanks Suzanne. It was actually my son that came up with the name. I called them Tropical Popsicles and he said "You mean Trop-Pops?". Done!

  3. I did not know that about coconut water. These are great Renee.

    • I've also recently heard that if you drink coconut water before bed, it will plump your skin and help fight wrinkles as you sleep. I'm all for that!!
