Strawberry Protein Yogurt Pops

Strawberry yogurt popsicles

I love summer.

I’d be happy if it was summer every day. No snow, no ice, no biting winds.

But, I live in Alberta. Don’t get me wrong, I adore living here, but for me, summer is what makes it such a beautiful place.

Besides the glorious long nights, the hot-but-not-too-hot temperatures, the sun, the sights, and all things awesome about Alberta summers, this is the season of cold treats.

It’s popsicle season!

I think I have an actual popsicle one a year if that, and I’m good. They are so sickenly sweet and full of sugar. I really don’t enjoy them.

We don’t keep ice cream in the house either because, truthfully, we will eat it. So it’s better it just doesn’t make an appearance.

I do have an easy and super healthy recipe perfect for those hot summer days.

My quick and easy recipe is for frozen yogurt pops packed with extra protein, and other than the fruit, no added sugar.

The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for them to freeze. Just accept the fact that they should sit overnight.

I made these with USANA Health Sciences’ new MySmart™ Shake high-quality protein powder. They are available in 3 different bases:  Plant, Whey, or Soy.  For my yogurt pops, I chose Whey, but any would work.

Here’s why I choose this particular protein powder:

  • One serving is 18g of protein, 8g of fibre, and 160 calories
  • They use soluble and insoluble fibre
  • They don’t taste like most sugary, artificially flavoured mixes
  • I like them for what’s in them as much as for what’s not

A delicious, healthy treat for a hot summer day
By:
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 scoops MySmart™ Shake Protein Base
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle moulds and freeze for at least 5 hours. I let mine sit overnight for best results.

Sit back, chill out, and enjoy!

These are so simple to make. I had my kids get involved in the process, which I feel is important so they learn how to make good food.

Love,
Karen
