With more people conscious of the risks of fried goods and sugar than ever, a demand for healthy snacks is on the rise.
Multiple new products carry labels that state, “Non-GMO,” “Certified Organic,” “Preservatives Free,” and more to ensure that the public is aware of how the products are sourced and processed.
A wonderful new product line that embodies this principle of nutrition is LifeIce created by Paulette Fox.
LifeIce is frozen “cubette” treats with a similar texture to a popsicle in four flavor varieties. There is “Berry Bite” (blueberries, blackberries, black currant, and yumberry), “Chocolate Crisp” (cocoa, cherry, black currant and vanilla), “Citrus Chomp” (orange, lemon, ginger, mangosteen and baobab), and “Green Grind” (kale, spirulina, banana and apple).
These ingenious low-calorie snacks (max 35 calories) are all made with a base of coconut water and agave for a touch of sweetness. Furthermore, the ingredients sourced are Non-GMO (genetically modified organisms), gluten-free, and without preservatives, making LifeIce the ultimate guiltless, clean, and sweet treat.
The ices came to be through as a result of Fox’s mother and her battle with ovarian cancer. A doctor recommended ice chips as patients responded well to the crunch of ice and its soothing properties. Fox began blending and freezing her own recipes of nutritional ices in which her mother enjoyed during her treatments. Two years later after extensive research and development the LifeIce brand was born.
