Because coconut water is so full of electrolytes, these would even make perfectly fine “recovery popsicles” after a hard outdoor workout; just add a very tiny pinch of salt to the coconut water before pouring it into the molds. (It shouldn’t be enough to taste; you just need enough sodium to replace what you’ve lost from sweating).
The quantity of popsicles will change depending on the size of your mold; you can make bite-sized treats for a crowd, or bigger, snack-sized popsicles (or even both). I’ve suggested some fruits below, but you can really use any combination you like for this recipe. Try pineapple if you really want to turn up the “tropical” theme, or oranges if you like it a little tangier – or just hunt through the fridge for anything that’s about to go bad.

- Fill each Popsicle mold with fresh fruit, but don’t jam it in too tight; you want some space in between to fill up with coconut water.
