How to Make Ice Pops
To make ice pops, all you need to make it is coconut water (or water) and slices of fresh fruit. We used strawberries, raspberries, blueberries along with some mango and kiwi chunks. They’re colorful and firm enough to hold their shape during freezing.
The fruit should be just barely ripe. Avoid using any fruits that brown easily such as apples, pears and bananas.
Slice it up into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Thinner pieces won’t freeze properly, while thicker pieces won’t fit into the molds.
Set up your popsicle molds on a work surface. Fill them nearly halfway with fruit slices, pushing them to the edges of the mold for a beautiful presentation later on.
Then pour coconut water (or water) to fill to 1/4-inch from the top. This gap is important, as it allows for some expansion room during freezing.
Put them into the freezer for 4 hours or as long as overnight. Let the ice pops thaw for 5 minutes before serving for easy unmolding.

- Make Ahead: You can make these ice pops one day ahead of time but not longer or the fruit will start to discolor.
