With Summer in full swing and temperatures rising, you may be searching for a little reprieve from the heat. One of the classic summer snacks for kids and adults alike is an ice cold popsicle. Store-bought popsicles are often full of sugar and additives (no, thanks!), so we have crafted up a healthier popsicle that you’ll be proud to feed your whole family.
This delicious treat, made with bananas, mangos and FOND’s Liquid Light Bone Broth, has a number of health benefits. Yep - a popsicle with benefits attached. Sign us up!
Benefits of Banana
Bananas are full of important nutrients like:
Bananas may also help improve digestion (thanks to naturally occurring prebiotics!), support heart health, improve kidney health, and relieve muscle cramps due to exercise.
Benefits of Mango
Mango is low in calories yet high in nutrients — particularly vitamin C, which aids immunity, iron absorption and growth and repair of body tissues. Other benefits of mango include its role in supporting eye health, improving hair and skin health, and improving digestion.
By pairing the mango and bananas with coconut cream and Liquid Light, we balance out the natural sugar and carbs these fruits contain with protein (Liquid Light!) and healthy fat (coconut cream). This means a delicious treat that keeps blood sugar stable.
Benefits of Liquid Light Bone Broth
Infused with turmeric, thyme and black pepper, Liquid Light is bright and earthy and full of anti-inflammatory effects. Besides being a powerful inflammation fighter, the ingredients in Liquid Light are also fantastic antioxidants.
