Fun Balanced Summertime Snacks

One of my favorite summertime treats are popsicles. But mine aren’t just any old popscicles, full of sugar and dyes. I make homemade fruity protein pops that are healthy, good for you, balanced snacks you and your entire family can enjoy without spiking blood sugar.

The stores now offer a variety of non-toxic popsicle molds in a wide range of colors, shapes and sizes. My favorite are the bomb pop shapes.

The following fruity protein pop recipes contain the 40-30-30 ratio of calories from carbohydrate, protein and fat; 40% low-glycemic carbohydrates are from seasonal fresh fruit, 30% high quailty protein from yogurt and whey protein powder, and 30% healthy fat from organic coconut. Each fruity protein pop has less than 60 calories. So fill your freezer with these deliciously balanced summertime treats kids and adults can enjoy anytime.
