Sugar-Free Dessert Woes

Remember how C & I went off sugar for the year? It's going pretty darn well. When I crave something sweet, I automatically think of fruit or granola or yogurt, so that's a nice and welcome change. However, Utah has finally kicked the "freak-snow-storms-in-June" habit and has decided to let us have some real summer. And that means it gets a little toasty in our little brick townhouse.

My solution?

Crystal Light was on sale last week, so I grabbed some raspberry limeade/orange/strawberry banana drink mix and set off to look for popsicle molds.

I have checked both Target and Walmart and neither of them carry them. I seriously asked C:

"I'm not old, right? These are still cool...they still make them, don't they?"

I just don't think $2 popsicle molds are something I should have to buy online.

Perhaps tho, I can get them for free with Swagbucks.

If you want to help a sister out, and get in on the $5 Amazon Gift Card action, sign up for Swagbucks, install the toolbar and get searching. [I feel fine endorsing this because we've already paid for movies, C's laptop cover, and my mother's day gift with Amazon Gift Cards from Swagbucks. It works. And it sure is nice to have some runnin' money for just spending some time online.]

If you do decide to sign up though, please use this link, or the one above and soon I'll have enough Swagbucks to get these.


  1. what to know what i think when i get a sugar craving?

    actually i don't think, i act. and acting on said craving usually involves me and a costco size bag of salt water taffy.

    psh, being overweight isn't that bad...

  2. i just bought a popsicle mold the other day at target! they had them in the dollar bins up at the front. but you DO live in utah, where children are definitely everywhere, so they probably went fast. also, you could try the old ice cube tray. just get some popsicle sticks (or lollipop sticks), fill your ice cube tray with juice, stick tin foil all the way around the top, and poke the sticks into the individual trays. you may have some leaners, but it's still just as delicious :)

  3. Good idea Whitney! I did see some cute star shaped ones at Walmart for a buck. . . Maybe that needs to happen soon. :)

  4. They sell them at the dollar store on Freedom and 6th north in Provo...

  5. ooh thanks! I didn't even think about the dollar store!

  6. you're old ;) Dollar store sounds like an excellent place ! I saw some at Wal-Mart last night too, back by the rubbermaids. P.S. I'm going to do the swagbucks under you, just haven't had a minute to put it together .. love you ! Super cute pictures. :)
