For some people, a meal doesn’t feel complete until they have dessert, but if you’re trying to cut back on the amount of sugar you consume, eliminating that after-dinner treat can be difficult. It’s no secret that sugar should be enjoyed in moderation, but for those who seem to have an insatiable sweet tooth, that’s typically easier said than done.

Mango Cream Popsicles
As the hot weather rolls in, you may decide you want a Popsicle or a cold, creamy treat to help you cool down. Most Popsicles are loaded with sugar and/or artificial flavors/sweeteners and while they may quench your need for something cool and sweet on a hot summer day, they aren’t always the healthiest option. Thankfully, BestBodiesforLife has the perfect alternative! Our Mango Cream Popsicles can help you feel cool on those hotter days, and they’re a healthier option than Popsicles you may buy at the store.
- Food processor or blender
- Popsicle molds with sticks
- 1 cup coconut or almond milk
- 1 to 1 ½ cups of frozen mango (or your choice of frozen fruit)
- 2 scoops BBfL Vanilla Cream LifeStyle Powder
- Add the coconut milk, frozen mango, and the BBfL Vanilla Cream LifeStyle Powder into a food processor or blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and there aren’t any mango chunks.
- Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds.
- Place the molds into the freezer overnight or until completely frozen and enjoy! Makes 6 to 8 popsicles.
Cocoa Fudge Mug CakeMaking dessert for your entire family is easy, but when you’re trying to make dessert for just one person, it can be dangerous to make a pan of brownies or to have an entire tub of ice cream sitting in your freezer.

However, if you’re trying to eat healthy, a mug cake can definitely throw you off track, unless it’s the healthy Cocoa Fudge Mug Cake made with BBfL’s LifeStyle Cocoa Cream mix! Not only does our LifeStyle Mix make this mug cake taste delicious, but it also adds numerous healthy superfoods to your treat that you wouldn’t get with an ordinary mug cake.
To make this recipe, you will need:
- 2 Tbsp melted butter or coconut oil

- 2 scoops BBfL Cocoa Cream LifeStyle Mix
- ¼ cup Almond or Coconut flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- Add the ingredients to a microwave-safe mug. Stir to combine.
