Mango Chia Seed Popsicles
Yield: 10 popsicles
3 cups frozen mango chunks
1 ripe banana
10 oz. coconut water
1 ½ TB. chia seeds
In a high-speed blender place frozen mango chunks, banana, and coconut water and blend until smooth. Stir in chia seeds by hand. Let mixture sit for about 20 minutes so the chia seeds can soften a bit. Pour mixture into 10 (3 ounce) popsicle molds placing a wooden stick into each (or follow the directions of your popsicle mold). Freeze until frozen, at least 8 hours.
