No, not from Dairy Queen, although I could easily down a Peanut Buster Parfait and a Cookie Dough Blizzard on these hot June days. I'm talking about a cool treat courtesy of the folks at Splenda. Mmmm, watermelon AND raspberry. So easy too!
Watermelon Raspberry Popsicles
2 cups watermelon, seeded and diced (I like to go ahead and buy the seedless watermelons)
1 cup fresh raspberries
1/3 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 Place all ingredients in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour ingredients out of blender. Strain through a sieve into a small bowl, pressing firmly to extract as much of the liquid as possible. Discard pulp.
2 Pour extracted juice into popsicle molds and freeze at least 6 hours or overnight.

Have returned from Memorial Day "hiatus" with a renewed perspective on swim wear and sugar-free living. First, rummaging through an inbox bulging with emails (I forgot my crack-berry on vacation) I found this interesting survey information, confirming that people want to adopt a reduced calorie or reduced sugar lifestyle. Why? More folks are reading labels and discovering unwanted calories in full- sugar products. AT wonders if those "16 little calories" from each tsp. of sugar has anything to do with an epidemic of expanding bottom-lines?
