Now that’s a pop of color!

Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio has done the impossible: created a healthy summer dessert that looks just as good as these mega-calorie treats.

“Taking a bite of this yummy goodness,” Ambrosio wrote on Instagram alongside the mouthwatering photo.

As the model explains on her blog, the portable pops are easy to make and hydrating, too. Just fill ice pop molds with any seasonal fruit of your choosing (we love Ambrosio’s blueberry, strawberry, kiwi, orange and raspberry combo), pour in enough coconut water to cover the fruit and freeze.

Basically, Ambrosio is taking the nutritious snack we never crave — a bowl of fruit and a bottle of coconut water — and turning it into the (equally nutritious) snack we want every day. Genius.

Bonus: Kids will love these, too. Are you ready to be the coolest mom on the playground?

This idea is genius but I just don’t like the taste of coconut water

It’s been all over pinterest for years, not exactly a ground breaking idea. Still I do this myself all the time at home and they’re great. For those who don’t like coconut water, try flavored coconut water like the mango coconut water. Much better!

Does anyone know if these would be sweet? I may have to try them out.

She “borrowed” this picture from a Norwegian blog, Green Attraction, who posted this image in July 2013. A simple reverse image search proves that in about 30 seconds. Give credit where credit is due Alessandra!

Portable pops? I wouldn’t want to take them too far in our Texas heat even in a cooler. That’s a lot of trouble to try to keep them frozen. Just bring the fruit instead and bottled water instead.
