Dish up healthy servings of hope with the HopeFULL Gift Pack! Originally created by two sisters who wanted to provide a dear friend with nutritious and delicious options that would not turn her stomach while undergoing chemotherapy for cancer, the HopeFULL Gift Pack is truly special. Designed to be sent or brought to a loved one, the contents of the gift pack includes 20 easy-to-make recipes, BPA, PVC, and Phthalate-free HOPEfull Silicone Mold, 100 Birch-wood spoon-sticks, and 1 insulated neoprene cooler tote. The recipes are simple enough for any caregiver to make and freeze, and the frozen meal pops offer cooling relief as well as tasty nutrition!
Not just for those undergoing treatment for cancer or other illnesses, the frozen meal pops make a wonderful summertime activity and healthy treat for the kiddos, as well! Little ones will love to help Mom or Dad in the kitchen as they measure the ingredients, add them to the blender, and once blended, pour them into the silicone mold to freeze. What “Mom” loves is that these pops do not contain any added sugar or artificial ingredients, just delightful flavors and sound nutrition! With 20 unique flavors to make, you can choose from Greenie Pineapple Pops to Cocobanana Bean, and introduce your child to flavors around the world, as well, with the Taste of Thailand or Tropic Treat. Yum!
“Mom” chose to make the Summer Fruit Pops with her daughter, pictured above, and they turned out marvelously! Measuring, blending, and pouring was easy, and the pops were ready in a little over an hour – just enough time to play outside!
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk (“Mom” used Vanilla Almond Milk)
1/2 cup silken tofu
1/2 cup fresh raspberries (“Mom” used 1/4 cup fresh raspberries and 1/4 cup fresh blueberries)
1/2 cup fresh strawberries de-stemmed and halved
1/2 cup vanilla whole milk yogurt (“Mom” used Organic Fat-Free Greek Yogurt)
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides if necessary. Pour into HopeFULL tray, add wooden spoon-sticks and freeze.
The pops tasted smooth and creamy, like a creamsicle, and are perfect after a long day spent playing! They can also be taken out of the freezer, left to melt just a bit in a bowl, and then eaten with the wooden spoon-stick.
Whether you are enjoying the pops as a treat, or sending cheerful goodness to a loved one or friend, the HopeFULL Gift Pack is sure to make someone smile! To learn more about the HopeFULL Company, the inspiration behind their business, or to order, visit www.thehopefullcompany.com.
