It's been hot the past few days. Protein Popsicles are a great treat that will not only cool you off, but will give you essential protein and nutrients your body needs. The best part about this recipe is that it's vegan, has no added sugar, and is gluten free. Special thanks to the Flavor Blender for this great recipe.

 

All you need is:

-Ground-Based Nutrition Superfood Protein Powder (chocolate & vanilla)

-Your favorite smoothing ingredients

-a blender

-popsicle molds & popsicle sticks

 

Ingredients:

Vanilla Layer

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 scoops (or an amount that s 1/3 cup) Vanilla Ground-Based Nutrition Superfood Protein Powder
  • 1 banana or 1/3 cup coconut yogurt
  • 2 - 3 dates
  • Pinch of salt

Chocolate Layer

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 scoops (or an amount that should add up to 1/3 cup)  Chocolate Ground-Based Nutrition Superfood Protein Powder
  • 1 banana or 1/3 cup coconut yogurt
  • 2 - 3 dates
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

Vanilla Layer

  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a jug and set aside.

Chocolate Layer

  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a separate jug and set aside.

Vanilla and Chocolate Popsicles

  • Prepare 10 x 3 oz popsicle molds. Fill each mold half-way with the vanilla smoothie. Freeze this layer for about 30 min - 1 hour (just to partially freeze the layer. This will ensure that the chocolate layer won't sink and mix with the vanilla layer).
  • Pour the chocolate smoothie layer over the semi-frozen vanilla smoothie layer. Using a skewer or extra popsicle stick, gently swirl the two layers.
  • Insert the popsicle sticks, and freeze for at least 6 hours to completely freeze the popsicles.
  • Dip the popsicle molds in hot water for a few seconds (or under running hot water), to make it easier to unmold them. Place the un-molded popsicles in zipper bags and in the freezer for whenever you need a delicious and healthy snack!
