It’s officially hot out and no one knows that better than Rad Mom and Arizona resident, Lexy Ward. This mama is the founder of Proper, a DIY and lifestyle blog that is all about living life in a properly improper fashion. She has so many creative and out of the box ideas — these Fruity Colorblock Popsicles included. This bright and tasty little treat is a fantastic way to cool down. We’ve also been jumping for joy when we have the chance to use our new KitchenAid Blender (we’re super obsessed) and knew these popsicles would be a breeze to make with this handy appliance. We don’t even remember the last time we ate dragon fruit, so using this ingredient was a total added bonus. What’s your favorite summer recipe?

  3. Repeat this process with the mango sorbet, acai smoothie packs and the remaining coconut milk.

  6. Pour in the mango sorbet layer and freeze for 20 minutes.
  7. Lastly, pour in the acai mixture and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours or until completely frozen.
