What is better for a dry mouth than a cool, soothing Popsicle? Unlike typical frozen treats, this cranberry coconut Popsicle provides fiber, healthy fat and protein. It is the perfect snack for cancer patients who are experiencing dry mouth, difficulty swallowing or mouth sores from radiation treatment. These Popsicles are so versatile, you can use other juices and fruits that you have on hand.
- 1 cup canned coconut milk
- 1 avocado, pitted and mashed
- 2 cups cranberry juice
- Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze for at least 2 hours.
If you have extra blended ingredients, drink as a smoothie or add yogurt or frozen fruit you have on hand for another satisfying treat.

So Many Delightful Recipes
I so love all the recipes shared by AICR! I have CLL and have been following an anti-cancer diet since being diagnosed in 2016. I am finding many of the cancer-fighting foods are helping me to keep the side effects of the CLL treatment at a mild-to-moderate level. So grateful for all you do to help those with cancer.
