Cherry Yogurt Popsicles (Refined Sugar Free)

We are big fans of homemade popsicles in this house.  During the summer, I try to maintain a continuous stock of them.  They make a healthy treat that also helps keep us cool.  This week, I tried some with yogurt.

Yes, we do eat yogurt (plain and sugar free) in this house.  I do add extra probiotics to the yogurt to help with digestion.  Probiotics are live enzymes that help reduce the stress on our digestive systems as well as balance out the healthy bacteria in our bodies.  Probiotics bring in good bacteria to our gut systems, which help our bodies heal and fight off infections.   
We all really enjoyed the combination of the cherries and the yogurt but I am sure pretty much any sweet fruit would work well in this recipe.

Ingredients (makes 5-6 popsicles)

  • 2 cups frozen or fresh pitted cherries
  • 1 1/4 cup organic, plain yogurt
  • 1-2 tablespoon honey or other natural sweetener (optional)
  • 1 capsule probiotics (optional)

Directions
  1. In a blender puree cherries until smooth.
  2. Add honey and probiotics to yogurt and stir until well blended.
  3. Alternate pouring cherry puree and yogurt into the popsicle molds.
  4. Add sticks and set in freezer to freeze until firm.
  5. Enjoy!

  2. All fruits and veggies are a good pick, especially if you consume these raw or lightly cooked. Fruits and vegetables contain an array of essential vitamins and nutrients. They’re also rich in antioxidants and fiber. Fiber is beneficial for maintaining healthy weight and it also has a positive impact on cardiovascular health.

    Another great food you can eat a lot of is… eggs! Eggs have long been stigmatized because of the cholesterol found in the yolk. New studies, however, suggest that the cholesterol found in egg yolks doesn’t contribute to an increase in bad cholesterol levels.

  3. There are some foods that will interfere with your attempts to boost HGH levels naturally. Avoiding such foods and choosing an all-natural product that will boost HGH production can help you make the most of your diet. desiring hypergh14x review
