I really enjoy soda but I don’t like all the calories that comes with it. That’s why I was excited to see that Safeway is carrying 4 different Ten calorie soft drinks including 7 UP Ten, Sunkist Ten, A&W Ten, and Canada Dry Ten. Now I can enjoy the sodas I love with same great taste but without all of the calories.
Since summer is coming I need to start getting ready for swimsuit weather and that means I need to start eating better and living a healthier lifestyle. That means exercising several times a week, making healthy meals, and choosing healthier snacks. Choosing and making healthier snacks is the hardest for me. In the summer I love a good milkshake or ice cream cone but my waistline certainly doesn’t.
While trying to come up with healthier snack items I found the popsicle molds I had bought on clearance at the end of last summer. That got me thinking. I checked the refrigerator and found fresh strawberries and raspberries, both of which are part of my healthy eating habits.
I came up with a quick and delicious ice pop recipe that comes in at just 35 calories. Yes, you heard that correctly, 35 calories per pop. I can eat 3 and be just over 100 calories! I chopped up the strawberries and raspberries, put them in my molds, and then filled the molds with 7 UP Ten! It not only made a delicious popsicle but a pretty one too! The fruit pieces are easy to see through the clear soda. My husband and I have been enjoying these out on our deck and I’m looking forward to trying the Sunkist Ten with citrus fruit slices for my next popsicle!
- 1/2 c. fresh strawberries
- 1/2 c. fresh raspberries
- 1 c. 7 UP Ten
- Chop the strawberries into small pieces. Cut the raspberries in half.
- Fill the 4-6 molds with the strawberries and raspberries, leaving about 1/2 inch at the top. Fill the molds with 7 UP Ten.
- Place in the freezer and freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Remove from the freezer, quickly dip the popsicles into hot water for 5 second, and pop them out of the molds. Enjoy!
