Longan Raspberry Peach Popsicles


Recipe Sponsored by Karviva. All opinions are of my own.

Happy 4th of July weekend!

I know you are anxious to pull out the grill and enjoy some BBQ, but it’s also important to stay cool and hydrated during those fun events. As I posted yesterday featuring The Shared’s Skillet Agave Lemonade, this summer will center around a #HydrateYourself theme. Hydration is a key to both health and building curves because water helps transports nutrients to your cells.

Our second post in this series is homemade Popsicles using 3 simple main ingredients ;  peaches, raspberries, and  Karviva’s Fruity Longan Drink.

Both peaches and raspberries are plentiful during late June early July which makes it a perfect treat in time for the holiday. I am a huge advocate of following Mother’s Nature’s eating plan.

As you know I support Karviva Drinks because of it’s low sugar and exotic quality ingredients. (Refer to Aronia Blueberry Syrup). Longan fruit is another food Karviva  introduced me too. Longan Fruit (pronounced long yan rou )is native to southern China and Burma.  It means “dragon’s eye meat” in China which is fitting because the flesh part kind of reminds you of the white part of an eye ball.

Fun facts about Longan Fruit

  • It helps reduce stress
  • High in minerals like magnesium which is great for bone health
  • Great for eyesight (I guess it looks like that for a reason)
  • Rich in Iron
  • Great for promoting energy for sexual activity (everyone wants that 😉 )

I do have a confession to make. When I first made these Popsicles, tho they tasted amazing, I struggled with getting them out the mold lol So being the impatient person I am, I used a little too much hot water to loosen them up and they melted before I could enjoy them as an actual “Popsicle.” It was more like a smoothie (sighs). So heads up, be a little more careful and patient than I was.

Vegan Curve Building Properties:

Karviva Fruity Longan drink is the curve building star. As mentioned above, the Longan fruit is rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium. We tend to only think of macro nutrients (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) as the only thing needed for building curves, but minerals are vital in making sure your body actually absorb those nutrients. Iron helps transports oxygen throughout the muscle tissue. Magnesium helps with physical energy, proper nerve and muscle function.

Longan Raspberry Peach Popsicles

Enjoy your 4th of July holiday with this cool hydrating treat!

  • 1 cup of Karviva’s Fruity Longan drink (divided)
  • 1/2 cup of raspberries
  • 1/2 cup of of chopped peaches
  • 1 banana (divided)
  • 2- 4 tablespoons of natural liquid sweetener
  1. Add raspberries, 1/2 cup of Fruity Longan drink, and half of a banana to a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Take raspberry puree and pour it into a bowl. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of sweetener to your puree and if it is not sweet enough add another tablespoon. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Gently rinse off your blender container with plain water (don’t wash) and add chopped up peaches, 1/2 cup of Fruity Longan drink, and other half of banana to blender. Blend until smooth.
  4. Take peach puree and pour it into a bowl. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of sweetener to your puree and if it is not sweet enough add another tablespoon. Mix well and set aside
  5. Start your assemble. This is where you can get creative. Take out your 8 Popsicle molds and get ready to assemble. Start by taking 1 tablespoon of raspberry puree and pouring it into the bottom of each mold. Then take a tablespoon of peach puree and pour that on top of your raspberry puree in each mold.
  6. Alternate back and forth between peach and until all mold are filled and all puree is gone (or at least almost gone) This creates a natural ombre effect when your Popsicle’s freeze.
  7. Pop in freezer overnight or at least for 4 hours. Once set carefully remove from molds and enjoy!

You do not have to create layers. If you like take all your ingrediants and throw them into a blender. You will still get the same amazing taste.This works well with any berry or any fruit of your choice. I used these berries because they are fresh and in season but you can use whatever you choose.

Try cutting up slices of peaches and sticking them inside the mold for an even more dymantic fun look and taste.
