We have been so busy lately. I just finished up my last summer graduate class and we have spent the past week packing, moving, and cleaning. In fact we are still moving the last of our things and cleaning our old home. To add to our craziness of going through a move, we will be adjusting to a completely new school and all the changes that it brings. New routines, clubs, sports, and activities while fun and enriching add more to our already full plates. It is a busy season with so much going on in our lives and with school starting this week that we have to be careful not to get too run down. Plus as a mother of three with a new baby on the way, I have to make sure and stay healthy so that I can take care of my family.
You can find Emergen-C and ChapStick at Walmart in the health and beauty section located near the pharmacy, specifically under the heading Cold & Flu.
I decided to make some delicious Vitamin C packed popsicles for an extra boost with fresh pineapple, Emergen-C, cream of coconut and pineapple juice (not pictured).
First core and chop a fresh pineapple.
Then put all ingredients in the blender.
Blend to make a beautiful creamy puree. This would be so good as a smoothie blended with some crushed ice too.
Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups to freeze.
1 fresh pineapple, chunked
1 cup cream of coconut
2 to 3 packets of Emergen-C (orange flavored)
½ cup pineapple juice
1. Cut pineapple into chunks then place in blender.
2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until pureed.
3. Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups with popsicle sticks and freeze.
4. Place molds under warm running water a few seconds to loosen popsicles or peel off paper cups.
Makes 8 to 10 popsicles depending on size of molds. These popsicles are delicious and remind me of a creamsicle with their creamy icy texture. If you want them less creamy and more icy, use less or omit the coconut cream.
