It’s summer, and those kids play hard! Restock their electrolytes naturally with refreshing bursts of cool lemon in every bite!
I am really excited to share with you guys my summertime answer to long, hot summer afternoons!
Long gone are the days of the afternoon nap for 2 of my girls, and while we do a version of “quiet time” for a short while – it is just that at ages 6 and 4…a short while 😉 These 2 play hard and busy most of the afternoon.
I’m not a huge fan of afternoon snacks since they seem to ruin dinner appetites for my kids, so these lemon electrolyte popsicles are enough to give them a quick energy boost, but light enough not to ruin their next meal!
A quick energy and mineral shot from some local, raw honey, and electrolyte balancing boost from real sea salt is all you need for refreshing the system in the heat of the summer. And in a much more natural way compared to store bought electrolyte drinks or snacks. Lemon not only tastes amazing, but it nourishes the body with real vitamin C and cleansing properties.
These are also perfect for the kids when they get sick. You can even keep a stash of them away in the freezer for those illnesses that pop up out of nowhere so you are prepared. Similar to my quick, shake up homemade electrolyte drink, these popsicles can help keep kids hydrated and balanced while ill and not eating much.

I love my 10-pop popsicle mold! I seriously love it! I can make a big batch all at once, wrap them up and store them away in the freezer for when I need them! The girls can help themselves that way too!
Rehydrating Eletrolyte Popsicles
- 2 cups water
- Juice & zest of 2 lemons
- 3 TB raw honey (I get mine from a local farmer. Ask around at farmer's markets to find some - if you don't have access THIS is a good brand.
- 1/4 - 1/2 tsp real sea salt per your taste
- Blend everything up and pour into your popsicle molds. This amount fills up my 10-pop popsicle mold.
- Freeze the popsicles and serve!

Rehydrating freezer pops aren’t just for kids. My father refuses to drink water after his stroke, but he loves rehydrating freezer pops because he thinks they are a type of ice cream. I keep the mini fridge in dad’s front room stocked with these freezer pops, which keeps his doctor and caretaker happy because he is no longer dehydrated, and they don’t have to nag him about drinking water.
Please feel free to share this idea if it helps anyone else take care of their aging relatives.
I’m so glad that helps him! I worked in home care physical therapy for almost a decade and I can absolutely see this working in that setting!
