TheNibble.com TIP OF THE DAY: Homemade Ice Pops, Regular Or Diet

Sparkling ICE was included in a blog post entitled “TIP OF THE DAY: Homemade Ice Pops, Regular or Diet.” This article featured a recipe for a way to cool off in the summer with a low calorie ice pop using Sparkling ICE Black Raspberry and freshly chopped raspberries. A prominent image of the prepared ice pop was included.

With record heat in many parts of the country, including ours, our thoughts ran to the different ways to cool off—without packing on the calories.

So we kept making bottles of seltzer with our Soda Stream, and mixed lots of our favorite new 5-calorie Lipton Tea and Honey To Go Stix Iced Tea Mix (in the Blackberry Pomegranate flavor) into individual bottles of cold water.

Then, we made our first diet ice pops of the season. All you need is ice pop molds and your favorite flavor of diet soda (we prefer fruit and root beer).

This tasty recipe uses calorie-free Black Raspberry Sparkling ICE with fresh raspberries. If you’re not counting calories, you can also use regular soda, juice or kefir.

The chopped fruit helps to bulk up the thinness of the soda.
