Frozen Goodness


There’s nothing like a cold treat on a hot day. Ice cream sandwiches are full of not so good for  you ingredients as well as most popsicles on the market. What to do? Make your own! I’ve typed up  one of my kiddos favorites for you to try with your family. I have to warn you though, when you taste these you may find yourself making them while the kids are at school so you don’t have to share!

Protein Popsicles

  • 2 cups plain low fat yogurt
  • 2 scoops high quality protein powder
  • 2 cups frozen fruit of choice
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar

Place yogurt, protein powder and agave nectar into blender and process until smooth. Add frozen fruit and process just until incorporated. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. You can also use dixie cups and insert your own popsicle stick into the center if you don’t have popsicle molds. This is just the basic recipe, you can create your own “flavors” depending on what kind of protein and fruit you use. Some of my kids favorites? I’ll list them for you below in order of which flavor protein I used followed by the fruit I mixed in.

Chocolate  cherry, chocolate mixed berry, chocolate raspberry, chocolate orange (I just drained a can of mandarin oranges and froze them in a single layer on a cookie sheet), chocolate coconut/almond (I added 1 cup of flaked coconut and 1 cup of slivered almonds), vanilla mixed berry, vanilla mango, vanilla pineapple, vanilla pineapple/coconut,  vanilla orange, vanilla cherry, vanilla strawberry/banana, vanilla blueberry, vanilla banana/orange/pineapple (I added 1/4 orange juice instead of agave nectar and blended the bananas with the yogurt and protein powder until smooth. They were plenty sweet and the kids loved them.) Feel free to get creative and design  your own concoctions, I’d love to hear what you come up with!
