Healthy Strawberry Lemonade Yogurt Bars

Healthy Strawberry Lemonade Yogurt Bars

Everyone loves popsicles this time of year!!! The only problem with the majority of store bought popsicles, is the fact that they are packed with sugar and carbohydrates, therefore extremely high on the glycemic index. Some people are still not aware that consuming large amounts of fruit and fruit drinks is a quick way to pack  on the pounds, not to mention, can potentially lead to developing diabetes in the future. The trick to eating fruit for your betterment is to choose fruits that are low glycemic and have little affect on blood sugar. The best low glycemic fruits to consume are berries. I highly recommend staying away from watermelon and pineapple, because these are the two fruits that cause the biggest spike in blood sugar when consumed. Okay okay, back to these delicious healthy strawberry lemonade yogurt bars! The beauty of making these popsicles, is that you can switch up the recipe according to your preferred taste/sweetness liking/etc. If you prefer raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries  in addition or in place of the strawberries…have at it!!! The kids will enjoy helping you make these healthy popsicles…and will love eating them! Gather all ingredients, the popsicles holders, a bowl, blender, and a spoon. Add all ingredients (except the strawberries) into the bowl and mix well with a spoon until all ingredients are mixed well. Add the strawberries into the blender and blend just long enough to chop up the berries. DO NOT COMPLETELY PUREE, leave chunky. Pour the chopped berries into the bowl with the yogurt mixture. Mix well. Pour the healthy strawberry lemonade yogurt mixture into each individual popsicle space, leaving a tiny bit of unfilled space at the top. Secure the handles...
Healthy No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert

Healthy No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert

Need a quick idea for a healthy dessert to serve to a few house guests? This recipe can be completed in 20 minutes and your guests will think you spent all day in the kitchen! Gather all ingredients, a bowl, a food processor, a spoon, and 4 individual clear serving dishes. Place the raw almonds and kashi cereal into the food processor and grind up for about 20 seconds. DO NOT OVER-PROCESS INTO POWDER! Add the remaining “Healthy Crunchy Layer Ingredients” into the processor and grind up for another 10 seconds until fully blended throughout the nutty cereal. You may need to scrape the sides of the processor in order to ensure all ingredients are mixed well. Pour the prepared “Healthy Crunchy Layer” into a bowl and place into the refrigerator until later. Rinse the processor and then add the “Healthy Cheesecake Layer Ingredients” to the processor. Blend the ingredients until well blended and smooth. If you have not already cleaned, trimmed, and cut up the strawberries, now is the time! Take out your serving dishes and add a layer of the “Healthy Crunchy Layer,” followed by a layer of the “Healthy Cheesecake Layer,” followed by a handful of strawberries (about 3 tbsp.) and then repeat the layers one more time. Top with a sprinkle of the crunchy layer and even a dollop of lite cool whip if you like to live on the edge! lol Keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve....
