Heart Health Monday!

Berries Bowl Raspberries Blueberries

Women should be eating berries, the darker the better:
from Natural News.

eating three or more servings of blueberries and strawberries per week appears to slash women’s risk of a heart attack by about one-third

From Socially Fit:

Fresh Fruit Frozen Treats

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 oz.) bottle of POM pomegranate juice
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, plus some extras for “garnish” if you’d like
  • 1 (6 oz.) container plain Greek yogurt

Method:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, and pulse until combined. Pour the mixture into Popsicle molds or Dixie cups, add Popsicle sticks (and some extra berries for “garnish” if you’d like), and then freeze until frozen.
  2. This mixture was thick enough for the Popsicle stands to stay in place. But if they do start to fall over, just cut a small slit in a square of wax paper, thread the Popsicle stick through it, and then place on top of the Dixie cup. Remove wax paper once the Popsicles are frozen.

Tip:
If you don’t like pulp in your Popsicle, you’re welcome to strain the mixture of the blueberry pulp before freezing!
