Icee, icee, baby! While everyone else is sweating bullets on the beach, you could be cool as a cucumber with these coconut-carrot ice-pops. You might enjoy the summer sunshine just a shred more knowing that this recipe is naturally sweetened with stevia. Not to mention, the beta-carotene from carrots conveniently converts to your skin’s best friend (vitamin A).

Don’t have a juicer to make fresh carrot juice? Try this recipe with a bottled 100% pure carrot juice blend (not from concentrate!).
Don’t have an ice-pop mold? Pour mixture into an ice cube tray, instead.
