My Favorite Spring Recipe: Omega Yogurt Berry Popsicles
Spring is quickly transitioning into summer here in Colorado–YAY!–and one of my all-time favorite snacks (and pregnant cravings) is yogurt, fresh berries and honey.
I love this recipe that I found from Dale Pinnock’s book Healing Foods. He takes my favorite ingredients and makes them into simple, medicinal recipes that I often recommend to my friends and patients.
Pinnock’s “Omega Mania Ice Lollies” are an excellent spring / summer treat to easily up your omega intake. Plus, this recipe includes my main criteria for a good recipe: no cooking. 😉
Why increase your omegas?
Omega fatty acids (like fish oil or flax seed oil) are wonderful for balancing your hormones and mood, producing radiant skin, shiny hair, and strong nails, boosting fertility, supporting a healthy pregnancy, and so much more.
Yogurt nourishes Kidney yin in Chinese medicine, which plays a huge role in women’s fertility, as well as improves digestion due to its probiotic content.
Honey can help alleviate or prevent pesky allergy symptoms that arise in the spring. Just make sure it’s local, and raw to preserve all its benefits.
Berries are a powerful antioxidant, which help to repair cellular oxidative damage, or reverse the signs of aging. Who doesn’t want that?
Omega Mania Ice Lollies
You will need:
- 1 large carton of organic plain live yogurt (I like to use goat yogurt as it’s easier to digest than cow yogurt)
- 2 handfuls of mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
- 5 Tbsp flaxseed oil
- 2 tsp honey
1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor, and blend into a smooth puree. Transfer the mixture to popsicle molds and freeze. Enjoy as a sweet treat to bump up your omega 3 levels at any time.
