I’m no food blogger, but I’m into food.
I think a lot about food. I eat a lot of food. I am on a never-ending journey to figure out how best to eat for me. To find the way that will give me energy, fuel my sports and workouts, keep me relatively lean and give me joy.
Occasionally I get an opportunity to try a new type of food. I’ve heard a lot about coconut water, but I’ve never paid attention to it (though my occasionally husband drinks it). But I like the idea of it. I’ve ready about athletes using it during races or workouts as a natural alternative to those sports/energy drinks that are essentially sugar and food colouring.
So I was pretty pumped when this arrived in the mail from the good people at Zico.
We love the popsicle making kit!! Our experiment went like this…
The results were great! A way better alternative for the kids than boxed fudgsicles. And look at me all making up recipes. It made me feel a little like Martha Stewart. However, the neighbour kid declared them too “banana-y”. Seriously, neighbour kid, don’t kill my buzz. I am a culinary genius. That is the story I’m sticking with.
And the girls loved the chocolate stuff straight up. Go figure. Add a little cocoa and extra sugar and anything is glorious. But, hey, that’s basically the way of the universe.
Thank you Zico!! Three cheers for healthy alternatives and fun new foods.
We now return to our regular programming.
