Paleo Coconut Cream Pops - Dairy-Free, No Added Sugar

Am I the only one that is so. Danged. Glad. that warm weather is here?! 
This summer here on FitViews I'll be working on sharing lots of Paleo friendly, kid friendly, taste bud friendly recipes. First up...

Paleo Coconut Cream Pops
1 Can Organic Coconut Milk (NOT Lite)
1 17.6 oz Can Blue Monkey Coconut Water
1 tsp Organic Vanilla
1/2 Cup Fine Shredded Coconut
Popsicle-making molds

Blend coconut milk, coconut water, and vanilla well (I use my blender). Add the shredded coconut and blend lightly. Pour immediately into popsicle molds. 

Freeze. This takes about 4 hours in my freezer. Enjoy!

This recipe is perfect as-is to my tastes, but if you want it sweeter add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup or honey.

Review: Bose SIE2i Sport Headphones with Reebok Armband

I have a little confession: I can't run without music. While I envy those of you that can go out and be one with the run, that's just not me. I need my tunes. I've even been known to go back home from the track to retrieve my forgotten ipod. A track workout with no music just seems like no fun! 
I just plain enjoy music when I run. It motivates me through tough workouts like sprints at the track. On most easy runs you'll find me belting out Kelly Clarkson. (Please note: I cannot sing, but I do anyway. It's OK, I live in the middle of nowhere, although I have scared the cows before. Everybody's a critic these days.) Music + running = happy me.
