Gather as a family, watch Descendants 2, make Coconut Water Fresh Fruit Pops, and just enjoy some down time for a change! Oh yea, and I should tell you, I did receive a full party pack from Team Click to facilitate this post.
We loved the first Disney Descendants movie and we couldn’t wait for Descendants 2 to come out. The minute it did, I knew we needed a movie night so a movie night we had…with healthy popsicles and all. Because that’s how we roll. But don’t get me wrong…I didn’t do the the whole “I’m the perfect mom with healthy snacks and stuff” thing…we had wigs, and dancing…and we stayed up way too late. But we did have healthy popsicles (more on that later), so there’s that.
We put in the movie, we put on the wigs, we donned the hats, wore the necklaces…and we partied like Disney stars.
It was a fun night!
Descendants 2 Movie Synopsis
The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit, Descendants, as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains try to find their place in idyllic Auradon.
When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town.
You’ll need to watch the movie, available today (August 15, 2017) at retailers near you, to find out how the story plays out!
D2 Coconut Water Fresh Fruit Pops
Although the kids absolutely loved the movie, the star of the show for them was the healthy popsicles. Just coconut water and lots and lots of fresh fruit; not even a teensy bit of sugar…and they loved them! Of course, these popsicles followed the color theme of our party…Mal (purple), Evie (blue), and Uma (green), so they were the perfect way to celebrate our watch party. As an added bonus, I was able to use my latest exotic fruit find, rambutan, in the ice pops as a natural sweetener. If you haven’t tried rambutan yet, you totally should!
- Popsicle molds
- 1 cup pure, unsweetened coconut water
- ½ cup purple grapes, halved
- ½ cup blueberries
- ½ cup honeydew, chopped into small pieces
- 2 rambutan, peeled and chopped into small pieces
- Layer fresh, chopped fruit into popsicle molds.
- Fill with coconut water; it won't take much, this just holds the fruit together and adds extra health benefits.
- Insert popsicle sticks.
- Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
