Frozen Protein Pops


Popsicles, or ice pops, are a part of summer as much as sunburn and mosquitos. Sadly, most popsicles on the market are just frozen sugar water made with corn syrup and other hard to pronounce ingredients. Making your own healthier popsicles is quite easy. In almost no time, you can have your own popsicles in the freezer, ready to eat in just a few hours.

Popsicle molds can be purchased at most major retailers (Target, Walmart, etc) in the summer or online. Or just use a 3 ounce paper cups, cover with a small piece of foil and insert a wooden stick.These are two of my favorite recipes. Both can be easily modified based on personal preferences.
