Wholesome life: Creamy sorbet on a stick
Popsicles are a summer favorite. But some store-bought items may be high in artificial ingredients or added sugar. So we’re sharing a way to make a healthier version for you at home.
We make creamy, fruity popsicles.
Healthy Living: Keeping Children Active and Entertained
- 3 cups of frozen fruit,
- 1 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt,
- 2 tbsp honey,
- 1 cup of coconut milk or water
First blend the ingredients until they are smooth. Fill the popsicle mold, tap the mold on the counter to make sure the ingredients set without bubbles, add sticks or close the container and freeze for at least six hours. To thaw, run lukewarm water over the mold and remove the popsicle. Enjoy!
This recipe is a great way to use local fruit this summer. You want it to be ripe because that’s when it’s sweetest and when the fruit is frozen they tend to lose some of that flavor intensity.
Healthy Living: Get Fit This Summer
These pops have about 8 grams of sugar, which is roughly the same as store-bought popsicles, but most store-bought ones have artificial flavors or sweeteners that have been linked to weight gain, cancer, and other health hazards.
Plus, this version is a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy.
