    Strawberry and Basil Popsicles

    The Most Refreshing Popsicles!

    Summer is the season of frozen treats! Whether you eat sherbet, vanilla ice cream, or a popsicle, any way is good to cool down! But you don’t always have to go out and buy those products in the frozen section of the grocery store. You can easily make your own dessert in the blink of an eye! Plus, you’ll eat with no worries knowing you used healthy and fresh ingredients.

    The Greek yogurt and condensed milk give a rich and creamy texture that remind us of ice cream to these popsicles. Yet, the fat content is much lower, and the protein content is higher. They are therefore much more nutritious (and delicious!) than shop-bought alternatives!

    SIMPLY DELICIOUS: For a change, you could also make these cereal and milk popsicles! It may sound odd, but it’s really unique and tasty!

If consumed in excess, they can have adverse effects on cardiovascular health, including increases in LDL-cholesterol levels.
