Health Benefits
Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases. It can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and protects against several types of cancer (such as mouth, stomach, and colon-rectum cancer). Most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories. None have cholesterol. They are even important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, and folate (folic acid).

These delicious fruit pops will cool you off and make a great healthy treat!

  • 1 cup non-fat or low-fat milk
  • 8 (7 ounce-size) paper cups
  • 8 wooden craft/popsicle sticks or plastic spoons

  • Mash fruit with a fork. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until smooth. (If using a blender, blend all ingredients together until smooth.)
