Instructions
  1. You can either make the plain and blue coloured waters separately and fill them in each mould completely to create blue and white popsicles or you can follow the instructions below to create dual shade popsicles as well as a blue ombre range.
  2. Place the coconut water in a pouring jug and dissolve the xylitol or sweetener in the coconut water. Divide into two jugs or bowls. Add the lime juice into one of the jugs and stir through. Leave a quarter cup aside and pour into four popsicle moulds. Fill two of the moulds completely with the coconut water. Fill only half of the next mould with coconut water and fill only quarter of the fourth mould with the coconut water.
  3. With the remaining coconut water divide into two portions. In one add the 1/2 tsp of butterfly tea powder and in another add 1/4 tsp of butterfly tea powder. This will ensure two different shades of blue, one being more electric blue. Add 1/4 tsp of butterfly tea powder into the remaining coconut water which also had lime juice mixed in, this will turn the water into a shade of purple.
  4. Pour the bright blue filling one mould completely. Then fill the next mould with half of the bright blue. Leave the remaining coloured coconut water aside. Place in the freezer for at least 1.5 hours (90 minutes).
  5. Once partially frozen slip in the petals of the butterfly pea flower. I used chopsticks to press it down into the half frozen popsicles. Freeze again for another hour (60 mins)
  6. Pour the remaining electric blue, light blue and purple coloured coconut water to fill up all the popsicle moulds. This will ensure a dual colour. Place the popsicle sticks in the moulds and freeze again for a minimum 2 hours or overnight.
  7. When you want to serve, places the moulds under boiling hot water for 10-15 seconds. Make sure not to get the water inside the popsicles. Hold the mould upside down, slightly squeeze the popsicle mould in one hand and twist and pull using the stick from the other hand to perfectly unfold your popsicle. It might have slightly melted at this point, so place it on a baking paper lined tray or plate and freeze again for 30 minutes-1 hour. Remove and store in a zip lock and pull out a popsicle whenever in the mood!
