Strawberry Coco Smoothie Popsicle

written by Head Health Nutter June 5, 2009

Summer is only two weeks away and so are some glorious, hot and lazy days best enjoyed with chilled treats. For an all-natural, digestive-friendly, healthy alternative to the usual favourites, frozen smoothie popsicles are guaranteed to please.

Easy-to-make and clean up, very budget-friendly and versatile, I just can’t get enough of these summer snacks! Inspired by Global Fitness’ high-protein popsicle, it’ll keep you satisfied longer, build muscle and, if you ask me these homemade popsicles taste better than store-bought.

Here’s my first attempt at a chocolate-flavoured version:

Serves: 12 Prep Time: Cooking Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, plain
  • 3/4 cup soy milk, chocolate (adjust to desired thickness)
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder (for a more chocolatey popsicle)
  • 1 scoop of your favourite protein powder
  • 1 tsp raw honey or pure maple syrup (optional & adjust to taste)

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients except protein powder until smooth.
  2. Add protein powder to smoothie and gently blend.
  3. Pour mix into popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze.

Notes

Tip: When you're ready to serve, try running hot water on the main part of the mold and jiggle the popsicle stick to loosen the frozen smoothie. My first attempt was a flop - I ended up disengaging the stick from the popsicle (a useless treat without a handle) and actually broke my mold in half trying to pry the sucker from it's parent!

I hope you enjoy this healthy, diet-friendly summer treat. Please come back to tell us how yours turned out!
