I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for These Frozen Treats
Warm weather is upon us. You're finally exposed to temperatures that call for frozen relief this time a year. Indulge a little this summer and whip up some seriously yummy frozen delights for family and friends. Plus, you can work off any extra calories outside in the beautiful weather.
(Adapted from Liz Applegate's article "Treat Yourself: Refuel and rehydrate with homemade frozen pops" from the August 2009 issue as Runner's World.)
What you'll need:
- 1 cup plain or flavored kefir
- 1 cup mixed summer fruit (berries, peaches, plums)
- 1 tablespoon honey
Toss all ingredients into a blender. When finished blending, pour into ice pop molds and freeze for 3 hours. These healthy summer pops give you calcium, protein and probiotics from the kefir, which also increases your immunity. Berries and fruit are also packed with antioxidants that help your body fight off disease.
