Yes, we may only be a few days in to August but school supply shopping is somehow becoming a reality. Summer’s sunny days seem to have flown by, but before you prepare the kids for their first day of school soak up some more summer by preparing this frozen treat! With healthy ingredients and a yummy taste you won’t be able to help indulging in a popsicle yourself (or two.)  If you took a peak at the ingredient list below, you’ll notice this recipe calls for coconut milk and water. This tropical pair has been making waves in the food trend market and created a health food frenzy as their popularity increases.  Also, if you are benefiting from the last pick of blackberries this season feel free to add them in to the mix too, they’ll be right at home with the blueberries and mint!
