Healthy Choice Desserts

Last week I posted about our new adventures in Eating Clean! I am really excited to see where this takes me and my husband.  I have already felt changes in myself, and am excited to see and feel more!

When I first started thinking about making these changes, I realized I needed to find an alternative to snacks, or desserts.  I love cold desserts/snacks.  I love getting fro-yo, or Icee's, and I enjoy an occasional snack! Especially at night! So I had to think of something better for me than the norm.  I thought about making fun frozen treats, and the next day I saw a cook book just for that at Sam's! I bought it for $5.99....well worth it for me! Not only is this a great treat for me now, but it will be wonderful to have all of these fun recipes when I have kids.  Then I picked up these two packs of popsicle trays at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each!

The first popsicle I decided to try out was the Strawberry-Lemon Pop!

For this here's what you needed:

1-Cup of strawberries

1-Tablespoon of lemon

1-cup of milk

1/2-cup of yogurt (plain, but I used strawberry because that's what we had)

1-teaspoon of sugar

*At the time I made this I used Splenda, but I learned last week that it is better to use HONEY to sweeten things.  So that is what I used on the ones I made this week! & I have also been using that on my coffee too! :-)

**I also added my unflavored protein powder to add an extra punch of goodness in there!

Then you just stick it all in your blender until it is pureed.

Next you pour them evenly into the little trays! This recipe made a tray and a half of these!

Then I froze them overnight, and enjoyed them the next day!!

I'm telling you, you should definitely try these out! They are easy and fun, and can be all natural! I used all fresh, organic fruits, and organic milk & yogurt! So I feel great about eating these no matter what time of day it is! They could even double as a smoothie in the morning, with the protein and fruit, it's like a small smoothie on a stick!

Plus the kids will LOVE IT!

This is a great snack/treat for kids! Way better than store bought popsicles that are dripping with fake stuff and sugar!! :-)

My nephew loved them and had like 3 this weekend!
