Pop, Pop, Popsicles!!!

Hi all!

Another beautiful day and I'm stoked to share more wonderful recipes! Not only are the recipes putting me in a great mood but so is the current novel I'm reading....Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. Its worth a squizz I tell you!

Anyhoo, thanks to Regina Rochelle for this beaut which she posted on her wall...another must-share! I also found these delish popsicle ideas on google......

‎​Healthy Popsicles!
I'm so making these when it gets warm out.. would be great if you have kids too!!!

3 cups watermelon puree (seedless if possible)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 peach or nectarine, diced
small handful fresh cherries, pitted and chopped

Cut the watermelon into chunks and then puree it in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
Set out about 1 dozen popsicle molds (amount needed will vary depending on size of molds). Fill each one with the chopped fresh fruit. Then pour in the watermelon puree until each mold is full to the top. Place a popsicle stick into each one. Place into your freezer and freeze for about 6 to 8 hours.
When ready to serve, run the popsicle molds under warm water for a few seconds and then pull each one out.

Pudding pops: Perhaps the yummiest of all.

Start by making your own pudding using low-fat or skim milk. Pour the pudding into a blender, add your favorite fruit, and blend. Two great combos are banana with chocolate pudding, and blueberries with vanilla pudding. Spoon into pop molds and freeze.

The low-fat pudding provides protein, and is an inexpensive, delicious way to get a good dose of calcium, which can help protect against osteoporosis, high blood pressure, stroke, and possibly cancer. The fruit adds antioxidant power to the mix.

Frozen Chocolate-Banana Pops.

To make these, simply insert a wooden stick into peeled banana halves, dunk in chocolate sauce, roll in peanuts, and freeze. Incredible! Or dip banana halves in yogurt, then roll them in vitamin E–rich chopped almonds, and freeze.

Sounds like just the right thing on hot days to have uber fun with the kids! I'll have a banana yoghurt pop please.

Keep it chilled peeps! Till tomorrow
