It has been so hot in the Netherlands lately that all I have been wanting to eat is ice cream and popsicles! For the coming week, they even predicted a heatwave 😱 Since I’m not used to hot weather at all, I need all the help I can get to cool off, and my latest popsicle creation, these with mango and coconut water, are a life saver! The Obrigado coconut water helps to restore my mineral balance, while the mango brings in antioxidants and vitamins. For a fun and delicious twist I also added some lime zest!
The coconut water that I used for this recipe comes from the Brazilian brand Obrigado. They have their own plantations in Bahia, Brazil, where they focus on growing coconut trees in a sustainable way by using mosaic farming. Of the 6600 hectares that they own, 30% (1701 hectares) is used to grow coconut trees, and 70% is given back to Mother Nature. Isn’t that amazing?! During my bachelor, I studied Earth & Environment, so I know how important healthy plantations are, which is why I am so happy to work together with Obrigado for this blog post.
