Hydrating Popsicles with Aloe Vera

Incorporating aloe vera into these hydrating freeze pops adds an extra layer of health benefits and refreshing goodness. Aloe vera is well-known for its hydrating properties, making it a perfect addition to these summertime treats. It provides an additional boost of hydration, perfect for keeping your little ones refreshed on hot summer days.

Ingredients For Hydration Freeze Pops

  • Fresh Fruit: Strawberry and watermelon. They contain high water content, making them excellent choices for maintaining hydration levels, especially during hot weather.
  • Aloe Vera: I used the Pitaya Foods frozen aloe vera bites.
  • Pure Coconut Water : Coconut water is naturally rich in electrolytes such as potassium and magnesium, which are essential for maintaining hydration levels. Make sure to opt for a pure no-sugar added coconut water.
  • Honey: I added a tad bit of honey to add some natural sweetness to the popsicles.

How to Make Homemade Freeze Pops

  1. Prepare the Fruits: Clean, hull and chop watermelon and strawberries as needed.
  2. Blend the Mixture: In a blender, combine the watermelon cubes, hulled strawberries, aloe vera, coconut water and honey. Blend until smooth and no large chunks remain. Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness if necessary by adding more honey, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired level of sweetness.
  3. Pour into Popsicle Molds: Carefully pour the mixture into ice pop bags. Place the filled popsicle molds in the freezer and let them freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or until completely solid.

Recipe Tips for Success

Here are some tips to ensure success when making these homemade hydrating freeze pops:

  • Use fresh and ripe watermelon and strawberries for the best flavor.
  • I haven’t tested the recipe with fresh aloe vera but you should be able to find frozen ones at your local store.
  • Select pure coconut water without added sugar.
  • Make sure to blend until the mixture is completely smooth.
  • Leave a little space at the top of each ice pop bag to allow for expansion as the mixture freeze.
  • Try these freezer pop sleeves to keep them frozen longer. These are also great for preventing the little ones hands from getting too cold.
