Fresh Fruit Popsicles with Tropicana® Fresh

Ingredients:

Simple Syrup:

1 1/2 Cup Cold Water

1 Cup Hot Water

1/2 Cup Sugar

2 Tbsp Agave Nectar

2 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice

Fresh Fruit:

1 Cup Fresh Grapefruit (1 large grapefruit)

1 Cup Fresh Oranges (1-2 oranges)

1 Cup Fresh Pineapple (1 medium pineapple)

1 Cup Fresh Mandarins (approximately 10 mandarins)

Real fruit popsicle recipe

Directions:

First, create the simple syrup on the stove top. In a medium sized pan, add 1 cup water. Bring to a boil. Next, add 1/2 cup sugar. Stir until dissolved. Then, add 2 tbsp agave nectar. Stir until dissolved. Then, add 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice. Next, add 1 1/12 cup cool water. Stir + set aside. 

To create the fresh fruit popsicles with fresh fruit suspended in the simple syrup, begin slicing the fruits into small pieces. Peel the mandarins + set aside. Section the grapefruit + oranges + peel off the membranes. While sectioning the grapefruit, reserve 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice that can be squeezed out of the fruit remaining on the skin. Slice the pineapple into small pieces. Next, Place the fresh fruit into the popsicle molds. Alternate the fruits. Fill about halfway, then add the popsicle sticks. Next, place the remaining fruit around the sticks. Then, add the reserved grapefruit juice to the simple syrup. Stir. Finally, pour the simple syrup into the molds + freeze. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight. 

To create the layered fresh fruit popsicles, begin peeling + slicing the fruits. Create the simple syrup listed above + set aside. Have your blender ready, and peel your fruit over your blender to catch any extra juice. Prepare the fruit by both squeezing the fresh fruit + adding whole fruit chunks. Each layer of fruit will be prepared separately. Yet, the process remains the same. Measure about 1 cup of fresh fruit into the blender. Peel and juice 1 cup of fresh oranges. Add to blender. Add 1/2 cup simple syrup. Blend on medium for 1 minute. Then, pour a small layer into the popsicle mold + place into the freezer for 3 hours or longer. Pour remaining orange mixture into a sealed container + place in the refrigerator. Repeat with grapefruit, pineapple + mandarins. Place each of the mixtures into sealed containers in the refridgerator so they will be ready to add a new layer once the previous layer has frozen. Fill some layers thin + some thick for a cheery look. Once the popsicle mold is filled halfway, add the popsicle sticks into the mixture to freeze into the popsicle. Continue to add the fresh fruit mixtures until the molds are filled. Enjoy!

This recipe yields approximately 12 popsicles. There are various sized popsicle molds available + it is fun to create different sizes + shapes!

The frozen grapes are such a nice touch to this smoothie. They give the smoothies a great chill, just as ice cubes do, but with more nutritional benefit. The frozen grape concentrate brings a natural sweetness to the smoothie as well as a little tart kick. My kids honesty love this smoothie + continue to ask for it. They generally don't eat a spinach salad, but they help put the spinach into the blender + love it! My kids think it is a lot of fun to watch the grapes change their consistency when frozen. I love that they are able to learn about healthy plant-based foods as children. I think touching the food, talking about it + helping prepare it will help them to develop a life-long value for health + wellness.

Vegan Truffles: Enjoy Life Foods ProBurst Bites

In the New Year, we always make resolutions to improve our health. But, sometimes they are unrealistic. So, I'm sharing Veganuary tips on Instagram to help you get more plants in your diet + to stay motivated to eat a healthy, plant-based diet. Go vegan in January. No rules, no tricks, no standards that are unrealistic, just More Plants! Yay! A plant-based diet can be so tasty + can still include sweets. I found Enjoy Life Foods ProBurst Bites, I love them + I'm so excited to share them with you.

Vegan truffle

One myth about vegan diets is that they don't include protein. Like any diet, restricted or not, we need to make balanced + health-conscious choices. And, there are many plant-based sources that provide protein. Like, sunflower + pumpkin seeds that can be found in the ProBurst Bites. These truffle-like bites boast 6-7 grams of plant-based protein per serving + contain a creamy, smooth chocolate center.

Vegan snack

The Pro-Burst Bites are ideal high-protein snacks, post-workout eats + easy snack bites to get more clean plant-based protein in your diet. As a mom of 3 little boys, it can be difficult to find time to cook everything my family + I eat. That's what I love about the Bites, grab and go. Can I get an, Amen? Now, can I just clap my hands + my house will clean itself? Probably not, but at least I can have a delicious high-protein snack before I go scrub those floors.

Enjoy Life Foods

My favorite flavor is the SunSeed Butter ProBurst Bites. They are also available in Cinnamon Spice, Mango Habanero + Cranberry Orange. The truffle bites are nutrient rich, yet taste delicious + indulgent with a creamy, smooth chocolate center. I love that the servings are pre-portioned  for protein on the go. 

vegan truffle enjoy life foods

The ProBurst Bites are made in a dedicated allergy-friendly facility, so there is no guessing or de-coding the nutrition label for families like us, with food allergies. The Bites are certifies Gluten-Free + Non-GMO Project Verifies + are free from the 8 most common food allergens. The Bites come in a resealable pouch, so they are so easy to take anywhere. They will be available in stores this spring, but are currently available on the Enjoy Life Foods website.

Frozen Coconut Berry Pie with So Delicious Dairy Free

Creating a dairy free, top 8 free dessert really isn't as complicated as it might seem. I just thought outside of the box. And, looked into the carton. The So Delicious carton, that is!

Dairy free dessert

When So Delicious asked me to create a recipe with the Dairy Free Coconutmilk Yogurt Alternative, I thought, creating something for Thanksgiving would be so much fun! Friends, this recipe was fun to create + it is fun + easy to make! No baking! The best part is, you can make this ahead of time + throw it in the freezer + your work for Thanksgiving day is cut down. 

Dairy free yogurt

Honestly, the most difficult part of this recipe is seeding the Pomegranate. But, I look at it as a relaxing activity, a chance to let my busy mind relax.

To seed the Pomegranate:

First, cut the pomegranate in half. Next, place your strainer inside of your clean sink. Then, hold the half of the pomegranate with your thumbs at the center of the skin, over the strainer + push the halved pomegranate inside out. Next, peel the seeds out of the membranes + place in a separate bowl. Rinse + set aside.

Shhhh... Here's a secret: if you feel pressed for time on seeding the pomegranate, you can buy pre-seeded pomegranates at most grocery stores!

So Delicious Dairy Free

Did you know the pomegranate is a great source of soluble + insoluble fiber + high in Vitamin C? Foods high in Vitamin C are great immune boosters. So helpful, especially around the holidays! Pomegranates are also high in antioxidants. Antioxidants are so valuable for our health, it's really important to include them into our diet, you can read more about the health benefits here.

Ok, let's get onto this pie making adventure.

Top 8 free dessert: So Delicious Rootbeer Float

Honestly, I think finding safe allergy-free desserts is one of the most difficult aspects of managing food allergies. So many of the classic desserts contain one or many of the top 8 allergens. Plus, many desserts are processed in a way to cause cross-contamination to a dessert that may have been otherwise safe with the main ingredients, prior to processing. So, here is an awesome top 8 free dessert: So Delicious dairy-free rootbeer float.

top 8 free dessert

Did you know that milk allergy (dairy allergy) is the most common allergy in infants + children? Also, many people have a lactose intolerance. The two are often interchanged + misunderstood, but they are very different. Food allergies involve the immune system + have the potential to produce an anaphylactic reaction. Food intolerances, like lactose intolerance do not involve the immune system.

According to food allergy.orgPeople who are lactose intolerant are missing the enzyme lactase, which breaks down lactose, a sugar found in milk and dairy products. As a result, lactose-intolerant patients are unable to digest these foods, and may experience symptoms such as nausea, cramps, gas, bloating and diarrhea. While lactose intolerance can cause great discomfort, it is not life-threatening.

so delicious rootbeer float

I nursed my son, Bowan for a year after the diagnosis of his food allergies. During that time I strictly avoided all of his allergens. I also avoided foods that could've been cross-contaminated with his allergens. So, I didn't eat ice cream. (Sounds hard, I know!) I knew that most ice cream was or had the potential to be cross-contaminated with peanuts + tree nuts, so I just avoided ice cream. And, honestly I didn't take the time to research ice creams. Until I found So Delicious. They use top-notch allergen testing, that I trust enough to eat myself + let my sweet little Bowan enjoy.

rootbeer float

One day my husband came home with rootbeer + I thought, why didn't I think of that?! A rootbeer float can be top 8 free! So, it was a fun evening with way too many rootbeer floats. And, here Bowan is with his 1st rootbeer float.
