It’s officially summer and bathing suit season. Stay fit with these Healthy Fruit Smoothie Popsicles that are not only good for you, but super tasty too!
I’m so happy that Pamela Smerker Designs came up with this awesome recipe for us just in time for summer! I love that one of the ingredients includes grapefruit essential oil which is rich in d-limonene.
Limonene (d-limonene) is a powerful antioxidant that is contained in the peels of citrus fruits such as grapefruit, orange and lemon. Lemons and limes loosen toxins in your digestive tract and aid in digestion. Grapefruits are high in enzymes that burn fat.
When you add grapefruit essential oil to these blended frozen fruit pops, you could be helping to detox your body and enjoy a yummy treat. It’s a win win!
Grab one of these frozen pops for a quick healthy snack or to cool you down on those hot summer days.
