Friday Fun: Popsicles and Ice Cream


Part of the reason I work out so much, and why many other do, is because dessert is awesome. I always have some form of dessert in my house. However not all of them are created equal so I decided to seek out some that I can make at home and still be a lot healthier. Click on the recipe title to get to the link for the recipes.

1. Egg Nog Almond Joy Blizzard




Recently I have been a fan of egg nog during the holidays and I had no idea they made a soy version of it. Now I definitely want to try this.






2. Frozen Fruit Pops



The good old staple. Although sometimes I find it hard to eat it with the big fruit chunks.








3. Watermelon & Parsley Ice Pops



This one offers two versions incase you don’t want the parsley. It also calls for simple syrup but I would probably substitute it with something a little healthier.





4.Blueberry kale pops




This caught my eye really fast, especially with that whole kale craze.





5. Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Popsicles – Low Carb and Gluten-Free




Not so sure about the cream cheese and heavy cream with in the recipe. May keep it more simple and less fattening. I might substitute greek yogurt for the heavy cream.






6. Nutella Swirl Cheesecake Ice Cream (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

This one, from the same author actually uses greek yogurt. It also sounds pretty amazing.






7. Balsamic roasted strawberry and rhubarb sorbet





Now this one is a little intensive for the recipe and of course they want you to use their brand’s sugar for it but you can use whatever you like.





8. Mango Vanilla Honey Push Pops

Mango-Vanilla-Honey-Push-up-Pops Not sure where she got her push pop containers (looked everywhere but she didn’t say) however these look and sound amazing. I sure a variation of these can be made for a popsicle instead.

Looks like there are some variations of them here.
