This frozen treat is a delicious and healthy way to cool off!
Hot days = Raspberry Cheesecake Popsicles!
When the weather turns hot I start craving cooling foods, and nothing tastes better than frozen raspberries and yogurt. These creamy, frozen treats are bursting with freshness and flavor. They feature four ingredients: yogurt, raspberries, honey, and an added banana for sweetness. This means they are 100% healthy with no artificial color or flavoring so you will feel good about sharing them with the entire family.
So, go ahead and enjoy the rest of summer with these frozen pops that will melt in your mouth! They are a perfect combination of sweet and sour but also very versatile if you decide to want them sweeter, or less sweet.
Typically I eat these popsicles as a snack but you can make them ahead of time and have them for breakfast as well. Enjoy!
Health warning! These Raspberry Cheesecake Popsicles may…
Strengthen your immune system
Help fight disease
Boost your metabolism
Reduce your waistline
A pretty pink, high fiber snack that will help you feel full without weighing you down. The raspberries are rich in vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. They contain the anti-inflammatory compound ellagic acid, which helps to efficiently stop damage to the cell membranes by neutralizing free radicals, and help protect against cancer. Mix these red beauties with a probiotic yogurt and you may strengthen your immune system, improve nutrient absorption, and decrease your waistline! Fat around your waist produces the hormone cortisol, which tells your body to accumulate even more belly flab, but live bacteria can reduce cortisol by lowering oxidative stress and improving gut health when you are under stress.
Note: If you have a milk allergy, replace yogurt with coconut milk.
