Healthy Tropical Coconut Popsicles

There are two kinds of people: morning people and non-morning people. I am without a doubt a non-morning person. I just can’t do it. I can’t function properly until around 9am and even then it’s debatable (and by debatable I mean, I still am in total zombie mode).

However, Sarge (my totally cute but totally impatient dog) doesn’t seem to understand this. In his mind, if he’s up, I’m up. If he’s ready to go for a walk, then I’m ready to go for a walk. This is dog logic. Or better yet, Sarge logic.

So, for the mornings that my body leaves my brain in bed, I like to have easy, ready-to-go breakfasts premade. And, if those just so happen to be tropical coconut popsicles then so be it.

I mean, doesn’t everything taste better when it’s on a stick?

SO, if you are like me, and need a major pick me up in the morning then these are for you! And, if you aren’t like me and mornings are your thing.. well.. then.. here’s something to make your thing even more your thing. Wait, what? Sorry, it’s 8am and I’m still asleep. Obviously.

HERE’S to breakfast popsicles. Lunch popsicles. Snack popsicles. Anytime popsicles!

P.S. Is it weird that I’m already dreaming of summer?

These healthy 4-ingredient popsicles will satisfy those late-night sweet cravings and are perfect for hot summer days! Bonus: they are good for you! It doesn't get much better than that, right?

Ingredients

¾ cup coconut milk (I like Thai brand)

1 heaping cup strawberries, frozen

1 heaping cup pineapple, frozen

1 large banana, extremely ripe

Directions

-Pour coconut milk into a small bowl. Mix together vigorously as coconut milk tends to separate.

-In a blender or food processor, add ¾ cup coconut milk, strawberries, pineapple, and banana. Blend until fully combined.

-Using a spoon or funnel, carefully pour mixture into 6 popsicle molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours.

-Once frozen, place molds under warm (not hot) water for a couple seconds to help remove.

Additional Notes:

-Fruit is naturally sweet so additional sugar is not needed. However, if you want your popsicles to be extra sweet use overly-ripe bananas!
