Papaya, Coconut, and Citrus Popsicles

Papaya, Coconut, and Citrus Popsicles recipe { @beardandbonnet }

I am officially in love with papayas – especially papaya in the form of popsicles! 

Popsicles are a constant in our freezer. Our kids don’t care what time of year it is or how cold it is outside they can’t seem to get enough of them and I can’t say that I disagree.

When Melissa’s produce sent me that beautiful box of produce a few weeks back I was excited to find some gorgeous strawberry papaya nestled inside. Strawberry papaya’s are considered to be the sweetest, most flavorful of all papayas! With beautiful, pink flesh that is fragrant and juicy, with a hint of fresh peaches and berries. They are perfection!

I struggled with what the best use for them would be – A salad? A smoothie? A cocktail? Nothing seemed as perfect as a popsicle! I assure you it didn’t take us long to work our way through 10 of these popsicles – they are spectacular.

    I’m with your kids – popsicles in the freezer all year long! Especially if they’re made of coconut and papaya. I’d probably go through these in just a couple of days.

      I am so glad we are not alone! We make popsicles for every season – so so good!

    These sound phenomenal Meg! I’m a sucker for papaya too, although it rarely makes it past the peeling and eating stage, especially with a generous squeeze of lime-delicious!!
