Snack: Sweet (Sugar-Free) Dark Cherry Popcycles

imageSnack: Beat that sweet craving with these sweet and good for you Dark Cherry Pops!

You’ll need 2 cups of frozen cherries, 1 cup of dark Black Cherry Juice, and a ripe plantain. Mix in blender until smooth and spoon into your pop-cycle mold. Place in freezer. Have these ready when you need a healthy something sweet or post workout.

If you have joint pain or arthritis, you need to be adding cherries to your diet. Dark Cherries not only fight inflammation in the body, but dark cherries have been found to reduce belly fat! Cherries also reduce post-workout pain. Dark cherries have anthocyanins which have been found to block two enzymes (COX-1 and COX-2) involved in the production of inflammatory compounds known as prostaglandins. Plus, they help to fight cancer – important to women suffering with PCOS as we are higher risk for ovarian cancer. A 2011 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that dietary intake of anthocyanins may help prevent high blood pressure. If you can’t stand the taste of the dark cherry juice, you can also take Tart Cherry Capsules as an alternative.
