22 Aug Refreshing Electrolyte Popsicles Perfect for the Summer Heat
Post by Dr. Holly Hagglund:
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I avoid buying watermelon because I always feel bad if we don’t eat the whole thing before it goes bad. Well, listen up my friends…you can freeze watermelon! Once frozen, it’s perfect for adding into smoothies or making these delicious electrolyte popsicles. Watermelon is a great choice for these hot summer days because it is hydrating, contains the electrolytes potassium and magnesium, and is full of antioxidants. Here’s a recipe that I tried recently using just some things I had on hand, and it turned out delicious. Let me know what you think!
3 cups cubed seedless watermelon (fresh or frozen)
1 cup strawberries
2 tsp. honey (optional)
1 c. plain Greek yogurt (or non-dairy alternative)
½ c. plain coconut water (can add more for thinner consistency)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add to popsicle molds and freeze overnight.
