The All in One Popsicle

A couple weeks ago I talked about teething popsicles for my toddler (who is actually toddling around now, by the way). And then last week I mentioned my new love for Greek yogurt. Between those two things you can probably guess where I am going with this post…

Did you know Greek yogurt has protein it? Well, now you do. That is part of what makes my new popsicles so amazing. They have protein from Greek yogurt and peanut butter (or soy butter if you have a peanut freepopsicles2 home like mine). They have dairy from the milk and the Greek yogurt. They have fruit (and sweetness) from the bananas. And they have completeness from the cocoa powder. So, taking a step back and looking these things over they have three out of four of the food groups! Amazing.

Not only do they taste yummy but they seriously fill me up! They are as filling as eating a sandwich. They work for breakfast, lunch, post workout, etc. These popsicles are something you need to try!

To make my delicious popsicles you need:

  • Popsicle Mold (if you don’t have one, get one! They are worth the investment!)
  • Blender
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (you can use vanilla if you want more sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup milk (add more if you want a thinner consistency)
  • 2 1/2 TBSP soybutter (or peanut butter) and cocoa powder
  • 1 over ripe banana

 

Just combine all the ingredients until smooth. Pour it in the molds and wait not so patiently for them to freeze. popsicle titleThis recipe is something you can change to your liking so experiment a little and find the perfect recipe for you! Let me know what you think or what changes make these even better!
