Coconut water is a great source of hydration for your body. It is naturally isotonic and contains electrolytes, minerals and simple sugars. It also has many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes, which help digestion and metabolism.

280ml unsweetened coconut water
A small handful of different diced fruit

1. Divide the coconut water between the moulds and sprinkle in some of the small fruit pieces, leaving a 1cm gap at the top. Use a spare lolly stick to rearrange the fruit pieces so that they are evenly distributed, if required.

2. Insert the sticks with the stick-holders and place in the freezer.

Choose different fruits to add to the coconut water, such as strawberry, kiwi and mango. Each of these add different flavour bites throughout the lolly and a great mix of colour.
