Coconut, Lime, & Mint Popsicles (low FODMAP)

I recently went to Cape Cod with my family and wanted to make a delicious treat for the warm weather. These Zipzicles sitting in my pantry were just waiting for the right time to be used.

If you haven’t heard of Zipzicles, they’re pretty much a DIY version of Flav-Or-Ice.

Fla-Vor-IceRemember those long tubes of frozen…sugar?  Ingredients in Flav-Or-Ice include: Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Fruit juice, Citric Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, and Blue 1. Aside from being very high in FODMAPs, these ice pops are full of artificial ingredients. So why not make your own?

I blended light coconut milk, lime juice, mint, and some sugar.

Then I poured the mixture into the Zipzicle bags and popped them in the freezer. We went for a nice Kayak ride on the river…
