Delicious and Healthy Protein Popsicle Recipe
Usually as summer kicks off, I place my order for Zipzicles™ and begin to look for new and improved ways to sneak some fruit into my diet in the simplest way. My concoctions have become what I am now calling the “Fit Pop.”
Some weeks, I will simply puree various fruits and call it a day. For those, you don’t really need a recipe—just a healthy imagination.
For this year’s new fan favorite, I zested roughly a tablespoon of lemon peel and added to that 13 ounces of coconut milk. I stirred in 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. And for the finishing touch, I added 3/4 cup of BioTRUST Nutrition Low Carb Protein Blend. For this particular recipe, I used Creamy Vanilla, but I would venture to say the Strawberry Banana flavor would be pretty darn amazing, too.
Once all the ingredients were combined, I divided the mixture up evenly in my Zipzicles and froze overnight. You could just as easily use popsicle containers, or even small containers with lids.
As mentioned, you could use any flavor of Low Carb (or Low Carb Lite), and you could add berries or whatever fruit you enjoy. I think next time I will try zesting another citrus fruit such as a lime or maybe an orange. The orange zest combined with Creamy Vanilla Low Carb sounds like a dreamsicle. I bet that would be delicious. (Or you could just use our new Orange Cream Low Carb Lite.)
This is a guilt-free pleasure I can feel great about serving to my friends and family. I may even surprise the baseball team with these as a terrific post-game snack.
