Pretty Pops for a Healthy Sweet Treat
Looking forward to our next Nutrition for Cancer Management class with the clients of the nonprofit, WomenCARE, we created these yummy, nutrient packed - and pretty - popsicles for a healthy, low glycemic treat. These popsicles contain both veggies and fruit, along with yogurt and raw honey for added immune boosting ingredients. Quick to make, keep them ready in the freezer for when a healthy, sweet treat is just what you want. Be well!
