Who knew recovery could be so refreshing? Check out our recipe for homemade fruit Popsicles — the perfect post-run snack that keeps you hydrated while training for the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon.


  • 2 cups frozen mango chunks. Due to the size of mango chunks, you'll probably end up with 2 heaping cups
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut water
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 1/4 cup lemon juice)
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender. Blend the ingredients on high until smooth. If you don't have a high-speed blender, you may need to add more liquid during the blending process, or wait to blend your ingredients when the mangos are semi-defrosted.
  2. Pour, or spoon, the Popsicle mixture into Popsicle molds. This recipe makes enough for six Popsicles.
  3. Freeze the Popsicles for about 12 hours. To remove the Popsicles from the molds, run each mold under warm water for about 30-40 seconds, then slide the Popsicle out of the mold.
