If you have a sweet tooth like I do, then this recipe will be your savior.  I’ve had people say these taste better than the real thing…but these are healthy!  Of course, everything in moderation (your mom hit the nail on the head with this).  Enjoy 1-2 of these every day to kick that sugar craving and reap all the healthy goodness.

What makes homemade treats healthy?

 Dark Chocolate

It’s a true joy that a food so delicious is also good for you.  The darker the chocolate, the better.  Dark chocolate contains less sugar than milk and lots of awesome antioxidants and fiber, which keep you feeling healthy and full.

Nut Butter

The beauty of this recipe is that you can use any nut butter you choose!  Peanut butter is classic, but try it out with almond butter or even sun butter (made from sunflower seeds).  With all the nut allergies these days, sun butter is your best bet if you’re making these for a school...

Who needs the ice cream truck when you have your own popsicles?

It’s after Memorial Day, which means the summertime season has begun!  It may not be officially summer just yet, but it sure feels like it.  Summer calls for fun, friends, and tasty treats.  With these 100+ degree days, we’ve been super into popsicles lately.  While it may be intimidating and sound messy to make your own popsicles, we promise that it can be fun and mess free! 

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Buy some popsicle zip-top bags. We’ve been using the Zipzicle brand which you can order on Amazon.  Or, go the old fashion route and use an ice tray, cover it with foil, and insert toothpicks for the handles.
  2. Choose what you want to fill your pops with. Get creative!  Here are some of our favs:

-Tropical Paradise: pineapple, banana, mango, orange juice

-Watermelon Refresher: watermelon, mint, honey, coconut water

-Berry Green: mixed berries, spinach, coconut water

** Make it a protein pop!  Use your favorite...
