It’s been a long winter on the East Coast. Cold, wet, dreary. And, thankfully, Summer is finally here! That means it’s time to put away those bulky winter coats and get outside. For people on the go, a cool, refreshing treat is a necessity during the summer months. We’re always in search of recipes that are healthy, delicious, but don’t require a ton of ingredients. Time is money and when it comes to refreshments on the go, simplicity is key. But sometimes less is more…more sugar and fat that is. It can be hard to find a balance between minimizing complexity and keeping the recipe healthy. We’ve worked with Evolution Fresh to come up with the most refreshing and healthy summertime treat: the Pineapple Orange Slushie Pop. Make a batch and keep it in your freezer for those moments when you need something thirst quenching and revitalizing on the go.

And then follow this simple recipe:

Pineapple Orange Slushie Pops

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Evolution Fresh Orange Juice (1 bottle)

  • 1 can (14 oz.) 100% organic pineapple crushed

  • 1/2 – 1 packet organic stevia (depending on desired level of sweetness)

  • 10 ice cubes

Steps

  1. In a blender, mix the pineapple, ice cubes, and orange juice until smooth.

  2. Add the stevia and blend.

  3. Pour into ice pop molds or an ice tray.

  4. Freeze until frozen!! 🙂

  5. Enjoy refreshment.

Not only are orange and pineapple cooling, refreshing and easy-to-make during these hot summer months, they also provide a boost of powerful nutrients to keep you strong and focused throughout your day.
