I have a problem:
When it’s hot outside (and it’s been a pretty hot summer), I enjoy cold snacks! The problem with most summer snacks is that they're usually loaded with sugar (think: ice cream, freezies, slurpees, etc.). I have a hard time finding readily available summer snacks, a part from fruit. Do you have this problem too?
Last summer, I went on a mission to find the ultimate, homemade, healthy summer snack. This was my criteria:
- Tastes delicious
- Has minimal sugar
- Must be cold
Using this criteria as a guideline for recipes, I tried quite a few different things. But with one specific recipe, I hit the jackpot – protein popsicles.
The key to a good protein popsicle is the protein itself. You have to truly enjoy the protein flavor, in order to enjoy the popsicle. I tend to lean towards fruity popsicle flavors, so I chose a fruity protein powder: the 4Ever Fit Fruit Blast 100% Natural Whey in Mango.
Here's the recipe:1. Mix 6 scoops of 4Ever Fit Fruit Blast 100% Natural Whey protein in 6 cups of water (my popsicle tray makes 6 popsicles, which is why I use 6 scoops of protein powder and 6 cups of water). Increase or decrease the scoops/water to suit the size of your tray
2. Pour the protein shake to the top of each popsicle mold in your tray.
