Local Healthy Popsicles!

Local Healthy Popsicles!

In a perfect world, my kids would eat healthy all of the time. Instead, I have one that would eat bread at every meal and another that would eat dirt if she could (hey, it builds the immunity, right?). I’m a mom who is always on the lookout for healthy swaps for not-so-healthy treats. If you know me, you know I care about eating healthy for the sake of nutrition not so much losing weight. Yes, I’m the mom most get annoyed with that chooses natural options over antibiotics. My husband likes to call me the modern hippie. I may have a more holistic mindset, but I’m also not out of touch with reality that we can’t avoid what we can’t avoid. All of that to say, we do eat sweets, we do have the occasional processed foods, and we may or may not eat dirt every now and then ;), but when I find something that isn’t just good but good for you, I love to tell others about it. I have something to tell you about today! Local friends, it would do you well to get check out Xisco Pops on Facebook, like their page, and then head to 800 Degrees Restaurants, Cinema Center, Ted’s Market or Barr Street Market to pick some up! My tiny dancers got home from dance class and indulged in their favorites just before bedtime and here are their thoughts…

 

Kimberly loves the Avocado Coconut Pop because “it tastes like delicious yummy”. She’s right, it does taste like delicious yummy. This was the first one I tried and was hooked after two bites. Don’t believe me? I dare you to go  try one.

Brinn highly recommends the Dutch Royalty because “it tastes like poop”. Ok you guys, that’s just her thing now…poop, everything is poop. Let me help you translate Brinn talk “it tastes like chocolate”. Note to self, don’t ask Brinn to review another product for you…

I highly recommend the Strawberry Lemonade dipped sparkling water. Once the kids went down for bed, I had myself a snack too. Simply, pour a glass of sparkling water, dip your Strawberry Lemonade Xisco Pop in, let it dissolve, and enjoy while watching your favorite show (or reading more of my blogs…).
