Since I'm not eating refined white sugar right now, fruit is how I satisfy my sweet tooth. I went grocery shopping on Wednesday, and let's just say I must have been craving something sweet, because before I knew what had happened, I had a cart full of fruit. Strawberries, grapes, peaches, pineapples, watermelon...obviously more than one person needs for a week!
I've been loving it, though! whenever I'm hungry for a little snack during the day, I've got plenty of fruit to choose from.
It was very simple. I just used a couple of the fruits I had on hand from Wednesday's crazy shopping spree.
They were so refreshing! Everything I wanted and so. much. more! It would have made a perfect smoothie too, but I wanted something a little colder than that.
Here are the specifics:
Calories: 19 per popsicle (!!)
Cut 1/2 a pineapple and 8 strawberries into bite-sized pieces. add 1 packet Stevia sweetener and blend it all until liquefied. Freeze in popsicle molds overnight.
(Tip: to get the popsicles out in one piece, submerge the molds in hot water for 10-20 seconds, and then squeeze the plastic so the popsicle doesn't cling to the side. They should slide right out!)
Couldn't be simpler, right? I know I'll be making more of these throughout the summer to bring to the pool or to enjoy out on the porch on humid evenings.
Now if I can get my picky husband to fall in love with these like I have, it will be the perfect snack!
