Meal Prep Monday: Frozen watermelon lime fizzy pops

All you need:

  • 2 cups cubed watermelon (seedless) 
  • 1/2 cup Zevia Kidz Watermelon 
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (divided) 
  • splash of lime juice 

All you do:

  1. In a blender, combine cubed watermelon and lime juice. Pulse until combined, and watermelon is liquified.
  2. Add in the Zevia Kidz Watermelon and stir to combine.
  3. Next, divide the watermelon mixture evenly between two cups. Pour some coconut milk into one of the cups, reserving a bit on the side. This will cause you to have one more vibrant pink mixture and one light pink mixture, as well as the reserved coconut milk.
  4. Fill popsicle molds, alternating with the shades of pink and adding in coconut milk as desired to achieve a marbled effect as shown.
  5. Freeze pops in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight, and enjoy!
