You Need

Popsicle mould (for 6 large pops)
Jug
Citrus juicer
zester/ grater
Sharp knife
Stirring spoon

Ingredients

1 blood orange
1 mango
1 carton of Coconut water
1 organic lemon, zest + juice
1 fresh vanilla pod
12 edible flowers
Honey (or agave to make it vegan)

Here’s How

Rinse the edible flowers. Remove petals or leave them whole if you’d prefer.
Prepare the mango and blood orange by cutting them into small segments that will fit in your ice lolly mould.*
Scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod and zest the about a quarter of the lemon. Put vanilla and zest in the jug. Pour the coconut water and juice from the lemon into the jug and stir.
Add honey to taste
Put some fruit pieces and pansies into each mould.
Fill each popsicle with the sweetened coconut water.
Place the lid securely on the popsicles and freeze until set (at least 3-4 hours)

*If you prefer a smoothly textured popsicle, blend the fruit, coconut water, vanilla, lemon, and honey together.

To enjoy your floral popsicle, run the mould under lukewarm water for a few seconds to make the pops easier to come out.
