Pomegranate CoconutWater Popsicles

Delicious and refreshing Pomegranate and Coconut Water Popsicles. A tasty and healthy frozen treat for kids this summer! | My Fussy Eater blogYou know by now that I love a recipe with absolute minimal ingredients (Two Ingredient Ice Cream… Two Ingredient Pancakes). A very short ingredient list generally equals a healthier, not to mention simpler, recipe. And these two ingredient Pomegranate Coconut Water Popsicles are no exception.

During the summer my fussy eater asks for a popsicle at least once, if not twice, a day. Store bought ice lollies, whilst they are ok as a rare treat, are not the best choice of snack for kids as they are usually very high in sugar and artificial sweeteners and can work out quite pricey too.

I nicknamed these Princess Popsicles as I told my fussy eater that the pomegranate seeds were princess jewels!

If your kids are not big fans of coconut then fear not as coconut water has a very mild flavour and, to me at least, tastes even milder when it is frozen. It is also naturally sweet meaning you don’t have to add any extra sweeter to the recipe.

You can of course use any popsicle mold you wish but just be aware that the quantities may not be the same.

Author: Ciara @ My Fussy Eater

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS

4 tbsp pomegranate seeds

250 ml coconut water

INSTRUCTIONS

Place 1 tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into the bottom of each popsicle mold and then fill to the top with coconut water.

Place in the freezer for about an hour or until the coconut water has started to freeze but is not completely frozen. Remove the mold from the freezer and, using a knife, stir the coconut water and pomegranate seeds. The seeds should have naturally sunk to the bottom but by sirring everything now when the coconut water has become more solid, you should be able to disperse them throughout the whole popsicle. Pop the lid back on the popsicle mold and insert the wooden stick.

Return to the freezer for another 2-3 hours or overnight.
