These Pineapple Ginger Pops make a refreshing treat perfect for a summer day.
Pineapple and ginger both support healthy digestion and reduce inflammation. Pineapple in particular contains an enzyme, bromelain, which helps the body digest protein. So, if you’re having a summer BBQ, whip these out after you’re done firing up the grill.
Satisfy desire for dessert without refined sugar. One of the best things we can do for our health is to reduce the amount of refined sugar we consume. Easier said than done, though.
To make that transition easier, without feeling like you’re giving up dessert (or joy in life 🙂 ) switch to fruit-based desserts, like these pineapple ginger pops. (Or these Double Dark Chocolate Brownies or these Chewy Almond Date Cookies).
