We all know that it can be tough to get children to eat their “five a day” without a fuss. It is also tricky to find nutritious, fun and tasty snacks/drinks, that aren’t loaded with sugar. Luckily, our flavoured coconut waters could be just what you and your children need.
With no added sugar, and a recent increase in the amount of natural fruit added, our fruity coconut waters are 100% child-friendly and taste better than ever.
They’re pretty versatile too! Here’s just a few simple coconut water-based recipes that you can try at home with your kids. They’re colourful, cost effective and bound to put the fun back into fruits…
Fruity Coconut Water Ice Lollies
Note: This recipe requires ice pop moulds. These are usually fairly cheap and can be purchased from most large supermarkets, or online on eBay or Amazon. Alternatively, you can make your own using plastic cups and lolly sticks.
For simple, fruity ice lollies, pour Chi Coconut Water & Pineapple, Chi Coconut Water & Mango or Chi Coconut Water & TropicalFruits into your molds and leave to set in the freezer over night. Serve and enjoy!
For more colourful ice lollies (with extra goodness!) use any of the above Coconut Waters or Chi 100% Pure Coconut Water, and add sliced fruits. It is useful to use smaller fruits like kiwis, strawberries or blueberries so that they fit nicely in the molds. Leave to set in the freezer over night.
Fruity Ice Cubes
This recipe is perfect for encouraging your children to drink more water. Pour Chi Coconut Water into ice cube molds and add small, sliced fruits. Leave to set in the freezer overnight.
Add to water for a nutritious pop of colour!
Coconut Water Slush
Blend 330ml of your chosen Chi Coconut Water together with a handful of ice and a handful of fruit (the sweeter the better!)
Serve to your children in their favourite cup, add a colorful straw, and put your feet up for five minutes. 🙂
