With the hope that the rain does not ruin my Memorial Day, I fully intend on going to the beach, enjoying my day off and of course eating yummy food!
I have to say, I love splurging on holidays — especially if it means I don’t have to feel guilty about it the next day.
So for this holiday, I’ve decided to make fruit popsicles courtesy of Self magazine’s Popsicles under 100 calories.
I try not to post too many recipes, but when I find some great ones it’s really hard to resist! So, I chose one out of the 5 recipes they had and made an amazing, healthy snack for this holiday that I can splurge on – and not feel shameful.
Minty Grape Pops
- ½ cup fresh or bottled lime juice
- ¼ cup honey
- 4 cups red grapes, halved
- ¼ cup packed fresh mint
Whisk lime juice and honey in a bowl until the honey dissolves, then stir in 2 cups of cold water. Spoon grapes and mint into molds into small Dixie cups or a freezer pop molds. Add lime-honey mixture and sticks and freeze for 6 hours and voila! You have a healthy, summer treat that you can feel good about.
After making these, I realized I made the right choice because not only are they 57 calories each, but they are delicious! While the other recipes look amazing, I am just too much of a sucker for mint in the summer.
What are some great summer recipes do you love?
