Custom 10 Week Workout Plan

This is my first foray into a new category on my site I’m calling Beyond Smoothies. After six years of focusing on smoothies, it’s time I write about other areas of health and wellness.

Beyond Smoothies is for anyone interested in the complete picture of health and wellness. If you are only interested in smoothies, no worries, the 250+ smoothie recipes and related articles aren’t going anywhere.

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie Popsicles

Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie PopsiclesIt’s been a blazing hot summer here in Michigan. Thankfully, I made plenty of smoothie Popsicles to keep me cool :)

Popsicles were one of my favorite snacks growing up and I see lots of kids eating them today. Unfortunately, the majority of Popsicles are loaded with sugar and far from healthy.

Turning the unhealthy into healthy is what I’m all about. These blueberry yogurt smoothie Popsicles are not only nutritious, but very flavorful and you won’t feel guilty eating them or giving them to your children.
