Beat the heat with delicious, healthy popsicles!
Summertime is here and so are hot temps! There’s nothing more appealing to kids (and, if we’re being honest, adults too!) than popsicles. If you’re like me, you want to allow your child to enjoy the fun of popsicles, but can’t help noticing the nutritional content of most popsicles, even “healthy” alternatives, on the market. Many contain overwhelming amounts of added sugar, which contributes to dysglycemia, insulin resistance and behavioral changes like ADHD. With this in mind, I experimented with a healthier version of the popsicle and came up with the following:
Delicious Fruits and Greens Popsicles
Step 1: Obtain popsicle molds.
Step 2: Fill a quart-size mason jar with filtered water.
Step 3: Add greens powder from single serve packet or 1 scoop from tub to 32 oz of water (you can adjust the strength of the flavor but adding more or less water to the powder). My kiddo loves the NutriDyn Fruits and Greens Pink Lemonade, Mixed Berry and Grape flavors, but I encourage you to try different flavors to see which your family prefers.
Step 4: Mix thoroughly, then pour into popsicle molds/containers. Place in freezer until hard, then remove and enjoy, knowing your child is consuming
at least a few servings of greens with each popsicle!
