The prepurchased treats I’m most diggin’ on right now are the Dryer’s no sugar added popsicles. They have several flavors and taste just like the original…and also only 40 calories a pop! (Get it? I said POP!)
I also finally found an NSA ice cream I like….Blue Bunny Double Strawberry. The natural sweetness of the strawberries cuts the whang of the artificial sweetner. It’s REALLY good!
I also made my own breakfast popsicles today! When my daughter was little, I used to blend vanilla yogurt and orange juice to make orange dreamsicles that she could eat for breakfast. She adored them, especially during her teething years in the summer. I made a delicious G.I. friendly version of them that are also delicious:
1 cup of Diet V8 Splash, flavor of your choice (I used tropical fruit)
1 cup fat-free lite (lower sugar) vanilla yogurt.
Add both to a bowl and blend with a whisk. This will make enough to fill a standard 4-pack homemade popsicle maker and will make a yummy, cold green light breakfast or treat!
Here is a popsicle recipe that I found on Cooks.com and adapted to sugar-free, they were a big hit!
1 (3 oz.) pkg. Sugar-Free Jello, any flavor
1 pkg. NSA Kool-Aid, any flavor
1/2 to 1 c. sugar substitute (such as Splenda)
2 c. hot water
2 c. cold water
Dissolve the dry ingredients in the hot water, stir until disolved then mix in the cold water. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze. Eat. Yum.
