Homemade Electrolyte Popsicles: a healthy summer treat

This is an excellent healthy popsicle recipe: the sweetness of the fruit is likely enough to keep a sweet craving at bay if you would like to omit the honey.

Moreover, the coconut water in these homemade electrolyte popsicles is a natural way to restore lost electrolytesand the carbohydrates can help fuel your workout as well as assist your recovery.

This recipe was not formulated for muscle building. For this purpose, I would suggest instead adding vanilla protein powder, removing the honey, and blending all of the ingredients. It won’t look as cool though, as the fruit will no longer be whole. You will then have solid colored popsicles – which is totally cool too!

Finally, these popsicles are excellent for your health because of all of the phytonutrient benefits contained in the fruit and vegetables of every color of the rainbow. Specific phytonutrient benefits tend to correlate with specific colors. Therefore, aiming to get as many colors as possible each day of plant foods, provides the greatest benefit for your body. These popsicles are very colorful with all whole food plant ingredients, so they will definitely provide health benefits!

Ingredient Selection Tips

Coconut Water

Try to find pure coconut water with no sugar, additives, or preservatives.

Honey

The best honey is honey purchased from your neighbor beekeeper, or from a local farm. Be sure that the honey is also sugar and additive-free. There are several techniques to check this.

Fruit

Ideally, try to find fresh fruit from your local organic supplier. By avoiding conventionally grown produce, you avoid chemicals and GMOs, avoid hormones and antibiotics, benefit from more nutrients, preserve our ecosystem, protect water and soil, reduce pollution, and enjoy a better taste.

If you are new to a healthy lifestyle though, don’t worry too much about upgrading all of your produce to organic right away. It is always most beneficial to buy organic produce that is on the dirty dozen list.

Noteworthy Health Benefits

Coconut Water

Coconut water is made from the clear liquid inside a green coconut. It is not the same as coconut milk. Coconut water has been consumed for centuries and is believed to help digestion and semen production (interesting…🤔).

Low in calories, it contains minerals and electrolytes like sodium and potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

Potassium helps maintain electrolyte balance in the body especially during exercise, while calcium is vital for bone strength and helps muscles contract and work properly. Magnesium for example helps to move calcium and potassium into muscles to aid in contraction and relaxation.

Mango

In some parts of the world, mango is called the king of fruits.

High in antioxidants, mango is a good source of immune-boosting nutrients. Full of vitamin A and vitamin C, mango helps the immune system to work properly, improving eye, hair, and skin health. Offers magnesium and potassium, and supports heart health.

Pineapple

Pineapple is an incredible fruit loaded with nutrients and healthy antioxidants. Containing a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes – pineapple boosts the immune system and suppresses inflammation.

Pineapple contains a group of enzymes called bromelain, which ease digestion, and may ease symptoms of arthritis

Diet Preference Tweaks

Keto Diet

If you are on Keto, maybe you could use different kinds of berries instead of mango, kiwi, and pineapple. Berries tend to be lower in sugar, while tropical fruits tend to be higher. Also, consider replacing honey/Date syrup with Stevia or monk fruit.
