Protein Popsicles 2 Ways | Stay Refreshed This Summer

We’re always on hand with new and delicious ways for you to make the most of your protein powder — shakes are just the tip of the iceberg.

This super-simple recipe from @niallkirkland is a perfect summery treat to help keep you topped up on your daily protein requirements, while hitting the spot for any sweet-tooth cravings.

Have a few of these protein-packed popsicles on stand-by in the freezer for when you’re in need of something refreshing — whether that’s when you’ve got that post-workout glow on, or when the sun is shining and you’re finally making use of your garden.

Enjoy a creamy, cooling boost of whey any time you fancy — and for extra indulgence, Niall’s dipped his in melted chocolate too.

Each recipe makes 6

Ingredients

For strawberry flavour:

For peanut butter & banana:

Optional:

Method

  1. For each flavour of popsicle, add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle moulds, then seal and freeze them for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  3. When your popsicles are set, add milk chocolate and coconut oil to a microwavable bowl and microwave for a minute, then remove and stir. After that, microwave in 20 second intervals until the chocolate melts.
  4. Transfer your melted chocolate to a glass and dip the end of each popsicle. The melted chocolate will set around the popsicle very fast — be careful to not let the popsicles start melting before you dip them, as the chocolate won’t stick to them.
  5. Enjoy!
