If I pretended like I’ve always wanted to be healthy, that would be a lie. In fact I’m only half-hearted about being healthy now I suppose. Fact: Allison loves candy. My Rob, who does like to be healthy, has fallen down the rabbit hole with me and has been on a search for the perfect fudge. Yep, everywhere we go we’re trying to find the best fudge ever. There are 3 options for in Oklahoma City to try out and we’ve already hit one. It  most definitely wasn’t even very good let alone the best!These amazing peach melba flavored popsicles are incredibly healthy with lots of whole fruit and Yulu yogurt!

But I really do want to start eating healthier some of the time. Doesn’t that sound silly?! I figure I can still have my candy and ice cream here and there if most of the time I eat clean and well. Talking lots of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and dairy. I don’t know if it already has a name, but my philosophy is that I want food as close to the original source, with as few steps in processing as possible. In a nutshell? Bye bye bologna!

Being somebody who has eaten lots and lots of processed foods my whole life, it can be hard to get away from the “I’ll just zap a TV dinner” mentality. BUT I enjoy cooking. I’m trying my hand at making healthy food that is convenient to grab and eat so I still get that instant gratification but I don’t go through a ton of sugar to get there.

And since Imma big fan of ice cream to the point that the guy at my local Braum’s knows me and my Ollie “ooh, hey Olllllllllllliver!” I have decided to start with healthy-ing up my frozen treat game. I researched and read reviews and finally chose a popsicle maker that seemed to work… mostly because I’ve gotten the cheap ones from the store and I wind up having a sink full of thawing popsicles because I get irritated from not being able to get the frigging things out of the plastic!

Healthy Peach Melba Popsicles

Whole fruit and yogurt make for a creamy and amazing popsicle that is nutritious and super tasty!

  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. Wash fruit and chop up peaches. In a blender puree the peaches with the skin on since it is packed full of good for you nutrients.
  2. If a creamier peach part of the pop is desired fold in (by hand)  1 small sized Yulu vanilla yogurt or 1/4-1/2 cup of milk. For  more sorbet type of texture leave as fruit only.
  3. Pour peach puree into prepared popsicle mold.
  4. Puree raspberries in blender. Fold in in 1 small sized  Yulu raspberry yogurt.
  5. Taste your raspberry and yogurt mix. If bitter add sugar until slightly sweet. With peaches being super sweet as is, we want the raspberry portion to be a bit sour for a tasty contrast so not much sugar will be needed… I used a tablespoon.
  6. Pour raspberry yogurt on top of peach puree, add sticks and freeze 8 hours or until solid.
  7. Enjoy!

    Hahaha! Nope, not silly at all Allison! I’m with you there when it comes to eating healthy some of the time. A good 80% of the time, I’m eatin’ healthy; like fresh vegetables that are basically just washed off and eaten plain. No yucky salad dressing for me! Believe me, it’s an acquired taste that you develop over time. It took me a couple of years, but I kept doing it, and now I can eat lots of green-leafy veggies without a single flinch! And you’ll notice that once you develop your taste for vegetables and fruit more, you begin to lose your taste for processed food, like bologna for instance (which by the way is soooo gross! I used to eat those processed TV dinners and meats too, so I know what it’s like).

    But I’ll be honest. Sometimes I just need a cookie or two or a piece of cake every now and then. And I daresay that I enjoy a good burger and fries or a slice of pizza. I reserve that for the remaining 20% of my diet. Nothing wrong with that, right? On the other hand, as healthy as I try to be, I never really took to dairy very well, like milk or ice cream. If I consume either, I feel sick; possibly lactose intolerant maybe? I can do cheese as long as I don’t go overboard, but I have to watch that too. Weird thing is, I used to not have to worry so much about what I eat and could eat pretty much anything without hesitation. But now that I’m in my 30s, I have to watch what passes through my lips. So learning how to cook is becoming an essential skill for me, haha. :)

    Anyway, your popsicles look good! And good luck to you and Rob in finding that perfect fudge!
