Ginger & Fruit Popsicles
Having a bad nausea day? Having a hard time hydrating when you really don’t feel like drinking much because you feel bloated and ill?
Here is what I do when I know that I need to get fluids in, but it’s hard to get much of anything down. I created simple yogurt ginger popsicles that I have put into silicone molds, ice cube trays, and other molds that are smaller and will be more aesthetically appealing to me in an attempt to get some fluids in.
Ingredients for ginger and fruit popsicles:
- 1 teaspoon Shredded Ginger
- 2 tablespoons Flavored Greek yogurt - 2 tablespoons
- 1 slice or cube Mango
- 2-3 Blueberries
- 2 Tablespoons Orange juice
Equipment needed for the recipe:
- Empty ice cube tray/silicone molds
- Popsicle sticks
Directions for ginger and fruit popsicles:
- Puree all of the ingredients until it’s all one, smooth consistency, and each ingredient is broken up.
- Fill in the ice cube trays with popsicle sticks & stick in the freezer for one hour.
This recipe is so easy, and even fun to make with the little ones. It’s especially handy because you probably have all of the ingredients in your fridge (or other things you can substitute) and it only takes about an hour or two to completely freeze and ready to eat!
Get out some of the silicone molds you use for jello jigglers, other fun shapes and find fun ways to make getting some fluids and a little ginger inside you to help with nausea.
The recipe makes 1-2 popsicles each, so just adjust the amounts of ingredients if you’d like to make a whole tray full, or even more if you’d like to make some for the family.
