Ingredients
  • Diet fruit beverage, tea, coffee (make these double strength) OR
  • Berries
  • Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Yogurt
  • Truvia or Splenda
  • Special equipment; Ice pop moulds - I love the squishy silicon ones and often pick them up with a $2 Clearance sticker at TJ Maxx
Instructions
  1. POUR diet beverage into moulds and freeze for one type of pop. OR
  2. Blend, 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, ½ cup Greek yogurt, ¼ cup Truvia or ½ cup Splenda until smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into the pop moulds; freeze for 3 hours or until completely frozen.

1. Tea. If you’re a tea fan, experiment with fruit teas, sweetened with noncaloric sweeteners (remember that Truvia is twice as sweet as sugar or Splenda, so use half as much)

2. Fruit. Add chopped fruit or citrus zest; for example, diet raspberry soda with chopped raspberries or diet lemon-lime soda with lime zest.

3. Layers. Create layers of different flavors. Add the first flavor, freeze and add the next layer.

4. Yogurt. For a few extra calories, mix flavored, no sugar added yogurt with the beverage. Or, create a separate yogurt layer. When I couldn’t find the No Sugar Added Creamsicles, I made own with diet orange soda and Oikos Triple Zero Greek vanilla yogurt.

 
5. CUBES. You can also make coffee tea or fruit ice cubes by freezing in an ice cube tray. Toss them into your drink instead of regular ice and the melting cubes won’t dilute the flavor.

    You don’t mention the fruit beverage in your directions. I assume it is added along with all of the other ingredients but how much?

      The fruit beverage is simply for a different kind of pop. You can fill up the pop moulds with Crystal Light Ruby Red Grapefruit and pop them into the freezer… OR you can make the yogurt smoothie type. It is mix and match as in my photo!
