Coffee N Coco Protein Ice Pops


Hot summer days remind of times when my siblings and I would spend the day riding our bikes in the neighbourhood, and right around dusk, we would pool together our dimes and nickels to race to convenience store to get our favourite treat – 10 cent Popsicles! Our biggest problems: choosing the flavour, followed by splitting the Popsicle in half without breaking it in the wrong place. I can’t say I’ve had a store bought Popsicle in a long time but it doesn’t mean that I don’t want a cool treat to beat the heat!

I decided to create my own protein infused Popsicle treat to satisfy my sweet tooth craving…
What you will need: Popsicle mould (I bought mine from Loblaw’s (President’s Choice) that are Paraben free.

Ingredients:
1 scoop Cookies N Cream Protein Powder
1 Scoop of Greens (I use Cyto Greens) – this can be omitted
1 frozen banana
1 tsp coco and maca powder
1 espresso-sized cup of coffee
Ice

Fill Popsicle moulds with mixture and freeze overnight (I had enough for seven). Take out Treat and enjoy. 
The following belowi s the approximate nutritional value
Calories per popscicle: 32
Protein: 3 grams
Carbs: 4.2 grams
Fats: 0.4 grams

  1. These must be the most healthy popsicles ever! When I was little we always had the ten cent popsicles at home... The worst was when the supply started to run low and only the orange ones were left. Pink always went first at my house :)

    That looks so good.  I love popsicles.  They were always one of my favorite summer treats as a child too.
