I was born and raised in a small town just outside of Las Vegas, NV, so I understand the desire for frozen foods when the summers are long and hot! I don’t know about you, but my “popsicle eating days without gaining a pound” are long gone. However, the cravings remain.
I found these adorable popsicle molds at Marshals for 6 bucks and I knew right away what I had to do. I needed to create a popsicle that was beneficial after a workout because that’s usually the time of day when I’m the hottest or sweatiest or just plain want something cold to eat.
Each popsicle has only 179 calories, 15 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat and only 6 carbohydrates (and that’s including the chocolate!).
So here it is, only four ingredients and you can easily adapt this recipe for different flavor popsicles by using your favorite protein.
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 Scoop Peanut Butter Protein Powder (I used Quest)
- 1/4 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt
- 4 tbsp. Dark Chocolate Fudge Coconut Butter (I used Nikki’s Coconut Butter)
Whisk together milk, protein powder and yogurt then pour into molds. The recipe should make about 4 popsicles depending the size of your molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours. Run molds under hot water for a few seconds before removing. Dip popsicles in semi melted coconut butter and returned to freezer for 5 minutes before serving. Optional: shredded coconut and chocolate chip garnish.
