Today Bel made blueberry-peach frozen smoothie pops for the boys. The ingredients are very simple. She pulled some of last year's fruit harvest from the freezer, used agave sweetener and added a little lemon juice to keep the colors bright. We've read that agave is much easier on the body than cane. It's very sweet, much lighter than honey, and has a wonderful caramel like flavor. The boys love it on their oatmeal, and I love it in my coffee.
|Bel has discovered that the trick to vacuum packing is to freeze the fruit on trays first. It eliminates the problem of clogging the machine with moisture.|
