Banana & Peach Coconut Popsicles

I whipped up a batch of these popsicles last weekend to beat the heat and they were craaaaaazy good!

A few nutritional notes firstโ€ฆ.

Peaches: Peaches provide us with vitamin A which is necessary for improved eyesight as well as glowing skin. They also contain vitamin C known for its immune boosting properties especially helpful during allergy season.

Coconut Milk: I generally avoid dairy whenever possible which is why these popsicles are non-dairy. I chose to use coconut milk here as my dairy alternative. I find that coconut milk gets a bad rap due to its high content of saturated fats. But in reality coconut milk contains unique fatty acids which have been shown to assist with weight loss, improve immune function, reduce heart disease risk and improve the quality of our skin and hair.

Banana & Peach Coconut Popsicles Makes 4 Popsicles

1 frozen banana
1.5 cups frozen peaches
1/3 cup full fat coconut milk (canned)
splash of coconut milk
1.5 tbsp raw honey
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
small pinch sea salt

Directions

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Pour into stainless steel or other BPA-free Popsicle molds and freeze for a few hours.

Fun Fact: I love how simple and delicious this recipe is! Not to mention it's 100% nutritious. Ditch the store-bought Popsicles that are sugar laden and filled with yucky ingredients and opt for these. This recipe is perfect for this time of year and ideal for your kiddies! Keep these on hand when they are sure to want something cool and refreshing.

Make These Popsicles Even Healthier

Sometimes I like to throw a handful of spinach in for an extra boost of greens! It will definitely change the color of your Popsicles but in no way will it alter the taste! If your kids are fussy about strange colors then swap out the peaches for antioxidant rich berries which will dominate in color and make it easier to hide the greens.
