I hope you guys are having a fabulous 3-day weekend. Truth be told, it's like any other weekend for us. Life with a newborn is different, as you know. I'm making homemade pizza for dinner...kind of the exact opposite of grilling outdoors, but these days, I'm just proud of anything homemade that I can manage to produce.
My parents are coming into town tomorrow to meet Camille, so I'll keep this short and sweet. There was a time in my pregnancy where frozen and cold foods were mind-blowing. I run cold normally, and we're the types of people that set our house to 80 in the summer. Coldness just doesn't agree with me...normally. But ice cold food was my obsession. I made every kind of fruit smoothie, and ate every kind of ice cream. Oh mama. But then I needed to healthify my craving, so I turned to these coconut water fruit slushies.
They each only have two ingredients: frozen fruit + coconut water. You can absolutely add a bit of agave to sweeten them up. I found that the strawberry and banana versions didn't need to be sweetened, but the blueberry version could use a bump of sweetness.
You can use frozen fruit right from the bag, or slice and freeze your own.
You can layer them together for even more fun!
P.S. Are you looking for an alcoholic version? I've got peach wine slushies and mixed berry wine slushies, too!
Fruity Coconut Water Slushes
These healthy fruit slushies are so quick to make and so refreshing.
- 1 cup coconut water
- ½ cup frozen fruit (bananas, strawberries, or blueberries)
- In a high-speed blender, combine the coconut water and frozen fruit of your choice.
- Blend and serve.

Yum!!! I just bought fruit/veggie popsicles at the store after a random craving, but I'll have to try these out Christina. Perfect healthy alternative to ice cream if you want a sweet summer snack.
Oh yum! These look delicious, and so simple. The layered slushy is pure awesome!! And I'm eyeing those boozy peach ones. Mmmm!
My air-conditioner went out last week, we're having a heat wave, and my apartment has been pushing 90 degrees since Friday night. I just made a raspberry slushie and I'm feeling about 100x less cranky. Thanks for saving my sanity!

These slushes look like the perfect way to stay cool this summer!
It's such a hot day. I would definitely enjoy one of these slushies right now (a mango version seems really good).
Happy Friday, Christina :)

These look amazing and super refreshing! What a great idea!
I did not know you were writing another cookbook, I saw it on Amazon.com and preordered it.
