Food Monday ~ Thirst Quenchers

Will Knott sent me this recipe to help keep my cool in the hat weather we are experiencing at the moment. I have not yet had the opportunity to try it yet.

3-Ingredient Frozen Banana Pops

1 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk
2 large super ripe bananas
1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Using a blender, mix all the ingredients until smooth.
Pour the liquid into Ice Pop Molds.
Place in freezer.
Wait three hours — that’s the hardest part!

Mind you, bananas and chocolate are not exactly my first thoughts when it comes to thirst quenching. This is really a smoothie frozen, you could also try your own favourite smoothie and freeze it in ice cube trays or Ice Pop Molds. I would love to know your great ideas to quench a thirst, apart from a crisp juicy apple, want to share them in the comments with me?

My own ideas are below!

Open freeze washed grapes, cubes of melon, watermelon or pineapple for a few hours and once frozen, bag them and store in the freezer. A few cubes at a time really quench the thirst and are great for young children or those who are ill.

Make sure the grapes are seedless if you are intending them for children.
