How to Make Coconut Water Ice Lollies
By Contributing Writer, Natty
These Brazilian coconut water ice lollies are the BEST thing for summer. I made these last weekend for a BBQ in Shropshire when it was really sunny (the weather in England is AMAZING at the moment) and they were a hit. These are great for kids and babies as they love the fruit and the coconut water makes it sweet but healthy with no added sugar. My boyfriend's 8 month-old nephew loved them! Adults also love them too. They also look Pinterest perfect to impress your guests at a summer fete. I bought this specific ice pop mould because I love how nostalgic they look with old school popsicle sticks.
My mum made these all the time when I was little (cheaply using plastic cups and popsicle sticks) and they remind me of hot summer days in Brazil. I love kiwi and mangos but you can do this with same recipe with any fruit you wish!

Ingredients (Serves: 10)
Time: 3 hours
1 Mango Ice Lolly Tray (Available in my shop)
500ml Coconut Water
Peel Kiwi and Mango and slice into desired shape (I like to cut the kiwi into 1/4 cm thick round slices and cube mangos).
Carefully place fruit into ice lolly mould, I used 4 slices of kiwi per mould (sticking them to the side to get the effect I want) and 5-6 pieces of mango.
Top mould with Coconut Water, about 80-90% full. The water expands as it freezes so do not fill right to the top.
Cover with lid and insert popsicle sticks to the are halfway into the coconut water. After 3 hours they should be fully set, but you can leave them longer to be sure.
To make them extra pretty serve on a bed of ice and little flowers for your guests and enjoy!
