{ cool treats for hot days }


We made a batch of yummy, homemade popsicles this week...SO much healthier than store bought ones that have artificial sweeteners & preservatives in them.

We used some of these recipes that I found in Body & Soul Magazine.

And then I made up a recipe using 1 cup organic, plain yogurt; 1 cup frozen organic fruit (we like blueberries); 2 TBS whey protein powder; 1 cup ICE; 1/2 cup pomegrante juice and 1 packet of powdered stevia.

But my favorite Popsicle recipe is a smoothie recipe I make - GREEN smoothies!
1 banana
1/2 cup mango
handful of fresh spinach
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ice
1 scoop of whey protein powder
Mix in blender!

Voila! A YUMMY green smoothie! Sam loves it just as much as I do. We make it for breakfast often! And now, it makes great popsicles too!

We use these star shaped molds.
