Pineapple Coconut Water Fruit Slushies

It’s been a scorching summer so far! The average temperature here in Georgia has been around 90°, and the heat will only rise as the summer forges  on.  One thing that we tend to have on hand in our house are popsicles because it’s just a quick way for the kids to cool off after being outside.

The problem is….those popsicles have a ton of sugar.  So, we’ve come up with a better alternative!  Homemade Fruit Slushies!!!!!

It only has two ingredients: frozen fruit and pineapple coconut water. You can use regular coconut water as well, but I found that the one infused with pineapple adds a more tropical touch.  You can also add a little agave or stevia if you want a tad more sweetness.  It really all depends on the fruit that you use.  Strawberries and mangos don’t really require any additional sugar, but the blueberries may. 🙂

You can also use fresh fruit as well!  We recently went strawberry picking, and I would have LOVED to use our harvest.  However, the kids pretty much inhaled them before I could blink. sigh…

Either way, this slushie is absolutely delicious, and will help make these steamy summer days a little more tolerable.  (Sidebar…..I think I’ll make the “Adult Version” of these slushies next time I have a dinner party. 😉
