I couldn't get enough of EatPops on a recent trip to the US. Created by Sophie Milrom, who while studying for a law degree, was craving a healthy, sweet snack. The rest is history, and the brand was born in 2014, a natural alternative to ice cream, with no processed sugars, all eight EatPops flavours are designed to make skin glow. From cleansing to nourishing and detoxing, they are the perfect summer treat, cool, sweet and good for you. The next step on from the juicing craze, freezing the goodness from seasonal fruits and veggies does extend the shelf life and preserve the natural vitamins. While EatPops are still only available in the US, (I live in hope they will launch here soon) all eight flavours are available at Whole Foods. In case you wanted to try your hand at a few healthy pops of your own, Milrom shares her recipes to try at home.
Coconut Milk Matcha Tea Pops
13.5-ounce can coconut milk
½ cup vanilla almond milk
2-3 teaspoons Panatea matcha (green tea) powder
¼ cup agave nectar
Superfood Acai Blueberry Smoothie Pops
1 cup coconut water
½ cup blueberries
1 acai smoothie pack (sold at health food stores)
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
Instructions: Combine ingredients in a blender. Pour mixture into ice block molds, paper cups or ice cube trays and add a stick. Freeze for at least five hours the ingredients last for six months. I have been creating some DIY icy treats, my faves so far, a blend of watermelon and lime with coconut water. Or pineapple, vanilla and almond milk - delicious.
