Hey Weight Loss Nation!
Delicious Blueberry Popsicles
Prep Time – 5 minutes
2 Cups of Fresh Blueberries
¾ Cup of either a. Chobani Non-Fat Plain Yogurt or 1 So Delicious Coconut Milk Unsweetened Vanilla Yogurt Alter
½ Cup of Almond Butter ( I use Artisana Raw Organic Almond Butter) Go to www.ArtisanaOrganics.com
1 teaspoon of Vanilla (REAL Vanilla has no alcohol in it.) Vanilla EXTRACT does contain Alcohol as a preservative.
The most sought after type of REAL Vanilla is Madagascar Vanilla. As the name suggests….the Vanilla beans or pure extract come from the island of Madagascar.
Madagascar is about 266 miles off the East Coast of South Africa….or directly East of the country of Mozambique.
Madagascar Vanilla is expensive. For a 2 oz. bottle on the Amoretti.com website, you will pay about $11.99.
By Comparison…..Vanilla Extract…which does contain alcohol, can be bought at your local supermarket. I priced a 2 oz bottle of “McCormick’s” Vanilla Extract at Walmart for $8.12.
Buy whichever type of Vanilla floats your boat. There isn’t a tremendous difference in taste. One has alcohol in it…..the other doesn’t.
Where do you BUY the Popsicle Molds? On Amazon of course!
I like the “Mamasicles” brand. They cost $7.99 at the time this episode was recorded and have “ 6 Popsicle Molds.”
Go to goo.gl/UyoDyN to find the “Mamasicles.”
OK….Let’s make some Healthy, Delicious Popsicles!
EASY Peasy Instructions:
- Blend the Blueberries, Yogurt, Almond Butter and Vanilla in a blender until Smooth.
- Pour the mixture into your Popsicle Mold.
- Insert the sticks into each mold
- Freeze until solid
Each Popsicle has:
6 g Carbs
45% of the Daily Allowance of B 12
40% Daily Allowance of Vit D
12% Daily Allowance of Iron
91% of Daily Allowance of Calcium
PLUS…..Blueberries are the King of Anti-Oxidants!
I’ve stated several times on this show…….dark colored fruits and vegetables get their color due to the Flavonoid called “Anthocyanin”
Flavonoids provide the powerful anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and ……they produce the vibrant, dark color in foods.
That means that Blueberries…..are part of our “Pac Man” Family!
No surprise there Nation! Flavonoids like….”Flavonois” and “Flavan-3-ols” are highly effective in “searching, Fighting and help in Destroying Free Radical Cells” in your body, that cause cancers.
