I have one main fear in life and that is getting sick. Staying healthy is super important to me and so I have a healthy routine that helps me feel in control of my life. Of course there are no guarantees (how I wish there were) but getting sleep, eating healthy, and washing my hands give me comfort and make me feel like I am doing something.
Another part of that routine is Emergen-C. See, Emergen-C is so great because the Super Orange (my favorite!) has this serious orange flavor and fizzy vibe. It reminds me of the orange sodas of my youth but oh so much butter for me. But if you don’t like orange, there are over 20 flavors and one is sure to suit your tastes.
While I use Emergen-C year round, in the winter it is a super important part of my routine to maintain my healthy lifestyle with its 1,000 mg of Vitamin C plus other antioxidants Zinc and Manganese to support your immune system.*
It is such a relief to know I have Emergen-C on hand when things that are out of my control happen. I feel refreshed after drinking Emergen-C and love that the seven 7 B Vitamins in it enhance energy naturally* without caffeine. Sometimes caffeine makes me super wound up and then I don’t sleep. No sleep is definitely not good for my health.
While I enjoy Emergen-C mixed with water as stated on the box, I also like to get creative with it. So I made some Healthy Breakfast Popsicles. That’s right, popsicles you can feel good about eating for breakfast.
These popsicles are full of nutritious ingredients: fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, fresh ginger, and chia seeds, plus Emergen-C. They are easy to make and gluten free! I find popsicles so refreshing even in the cold winter months and love that I can feel good about eating these.
Be sure to pick up some Emergen-C on your next trip to Walgreen’s and make these popsicles!Print
- 3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 1 cup milk (I used almond – use what you love)
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely grated
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 4 packets Emergen-C Super Orange
- 16 ounces water
- Popsicle molds or 5-ounce paper cups and plastic spoons
- Prepare popsicle molds or place 10 of the paper cups on a baking sheet.
- Place strawberries and milk in a blender. Blend until smooth, up to a minute, depending on your blender. Stir in the ginger and chia seeds. Divide the mixture evenly among the popsicle molds or paper cups.
- In a large bowl, stir together Emergen-C and water. Allow to sit and fizz for a couple minutes to be sure it is well combined. Stir in blueberries. Divide the Emergen-C mixture among the already half-filled molds or cups. Fill almost to the top. If there is extra mixture, freeze it by itself.
- Place spoons in the cups if using and place the tray or molds in the freezer for at least 12 hours to ensure the popsicles are fully frozen. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Additional freezing time is necessary
