There's something special about taking time out for a treat. Truly enjoying it is an indulgence in itself. Unfortunately, many treats are not really treating our health very well and it becomes more of a mis-treat and a guilty pleasure. So can you have your treat and enjoy good health too? Yes!
This treat is a super treat. The berries and dark chocolate are all high in anti-oxidants and the good fats in the chocolate help balance out the sweetness from the fruit. It all adds up to a great treat that leaves you feeling healthy, satisfied and guilt-free.
DIY: Berry Popsicles!
Makes 6 ice popsicles
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup of water
- 2 tbsp. of dark chocolate chunks (get as close to 100% as you can) or you can use powdered raw cacao
- 1/4 tsp. of cardamom seeds
Mix it all in a blender and pour into the ice popsicle form, add the sticks.
Put it the freezer; wait, wait, wait.
To get the popsicles out of the form, use a bowl of hot water to dip the form in until the popsicles slip out.
