 melty popsicle

so, because of the d-word (almost 10 pounds lost, btw), i've cut way back on my loco-pop intake.

i still eat them, don't get me wrong, but i only go about once a week now and generally choose from the sugar-free flavors (which currently are pineapple mint and something like strawberry-orange-nectarine).

if i go with friends i'll always taste their sugary flavors (chocolate orange... mmmm) and not feel guilty about sampling. i'll even order a full-blown "paleta del agua" if it's fruit-based. i'm not depriving myself, believe me. i've simply cut way, way back.

but this morning as i was making breakfast i thought, "hey! i could use my milk/protein serving and my fruit serving to make a faux popsicle!" so i did.

one of loco-pops' early flavors was blueberry lemon cream. so for breakfast i mixed up a cup of milk, 3/4 cup of blueberries, and a shot of lemon juice with some ice in the blender. yum!!

one of my favorite loco-pops is cantaloupe ginger. i think i could try that too (omitting the milk, of course... blecch).

my morning melted popsicle made me ridiculously happy.

Ah, Loco Pop. We miss them so much - say hi for us!
