Great way to get protein in first thing in the day is using chocolate chia…
I’m excited about summer. Hot weather means pool parties every weekend! In Dallas, the weather is already hitting the 3 digits so staying cool is always a way to get a treat. I am a fan of making frozen popsicles at home & keeping them in the fridge so when I get home I have something that is not loaded with sugar and have pieces of real fruit in it.
So now that my popsicles aren’t loaded what can I load them with? PROTEIN! I have partnered up with the Fit Approach and Bob’s Red Mill I did receive protein powders to try for myself in exchange. All opinions are my own.
I got this awesome variety of powders to try. Bob’s Red Mill products are gluten free, organic, and have probiotics so they are not just good for you, they are great! After working out I will also want to get protein in & since these had 20 grams of protein, I’ve been using the shaker for the ride home.
I tried all of them and my favorite flavor for popsicles is Chocolate as I’m a major chocolate lover.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 scoop of Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate Protein Powder (1/3 cup) with 20 grams of PROTEIN!
- 1 cup of soy milk (or favorite milk)
- 1/2 cup of unflavored greek yogurt
- 6 frozen berries
- popsicle mold
- large measuring cup
I used a popsicle mold that has a “stick” already so no need to buy sticks.
I took the soy milk, greek yogurt and protein powder into the blender. Blended till it was nearly frothy.
I poured the mixture into a measuring cup with a lip so it would pour easy into the popsicle mold. Of course I did manage to make a small spill!
Then I added some frozen berries to each cup. Remember that liquid expands when frozen so don’t fill to the brim because when you are eating these it will not catch any drip in the holder part.
I put these in overnight. Run warm water to have the popsicle come out clean and not break. ENJOY! I’ve been having these all week – and there is ZERO guilt. I’m eating these because I love myself THAT much.
