A fun and easy summer snack!
By Erica Johnson
As the summer wraps up, I’m sharing one of my latest obsessions and a fun way to create wonderful after school treats for the kiddos!
My current OBSESSION is Bai Waters. You’ve probably seen them in my other posts and recipes due to how much I love these waters. They’re not only sweetened with Stevia (verses artificial sweeteners) but taste absolutely amazing. (And no, we’re not a partner of theirs, although I wish we were…or that I had personally bought stock in this company for the amount that I love them!)
Last weekend I was looking for a sweet, cool and refreshing treat, so I popped open a bottle of my Coconut Bai water and also used a little bit of the Dragonfruit to mix it up some. I got some fresh berries and my popsicle maker from my local grocery store and my hubby and I got creative.
A little half and half on some of them, some filled with mixed fruit, others filled with only the flavored waters. TIP: if you’re doing half and half (and you want to try to make the popsicles look half one color, half the other) do a quick freeze on half of the popsicles BEFORE you put the stick in them…then add in the other half.
There isn’t a formal recipe to these and you can be as creative as possible with your add-in’s and fruit. What I can tell you is that they’re DELCIOUS, hardly any calories and a fun/festive way to brighten up an afternoon snack.
Get your kiddos involved! Bai has a number of different flavors and they truly taste like what they say on the bottle. Watermelon and Peach are next on my popsicle list to try! Enjoy and share your pics or flavor combos here!
