5 ingredient Red White & Blueberry Hangover Popsicles

Healthy and refreshing popsicles that may also aid in the preventing a hangover the day after the holiday. With Vitamins C and B as well as electrolytes, these can help stave/ soothe a hangover or just serve a delicious and healthy treat!

These popsicles are adorably patriotic and they have an extra surprise. These may help with that day after Independence Day hangover. This recipe was inspired by a pack of hangover prevention pills that I saw. I work at a supplement company so they were samples just lying around. I thought looking at the Supplement Facts that there are plenty of delicious foods that I would rather have with the same vitamins and minerals. So why not make a refreshing popsicle for the holidays with these active ingredients?

Strawberries- rich in Vitamin C and also a good source of Vitamin B
Coconut milk- Plenty of potassium which serves as an electrolyte helping to replenish fluids loss if you have already not been feeling well...
Blueberries- rich in many antioxidants and called a super food because of all of the phytonurients it has. Phytonutrients can help in anti-inflamatory and liver health.

But you know guys, I'm not a doc so I am not saying it will definitely work, but it does have the same ingredients as your over the counter hangover prevention pills. It's also super refreshing and healthy! Very little sugar and lots of real fruit. I also have these cute star shaped pops- so they are also cute as hell!

Celebrate the 4th in style and good health!

Drink responsibly and have a designated driver.

One more thing- these only have 5 ingredients!!
