When I was little I lived on a dead end street (no outlet.) It had it's advantages... I could play stick-ball and kickball smack dab in the center of it and rarely had to move mid game. I could ride my Big Wheel (I had the deluxe one with the hand brake) like a racer at the Indy 500 straight down the middle.
Living on the dead end had it's disadvantages too. We rarely got trick or treaters. My parents saved a lot of dough on candy and would probably consider this a good thing but I wanted trick or treaters. No one would make the walk for 3 houses. This also meant we never got an ice cream truck either. Well once, in 17 years. I thankfully had change to buy one or I might have needed therapy.
Who needs an ice cream man when you can make one of these healthy frozen treats at home...
How to Make Protein Popsicles
What you need:
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt (I use Plain)
1/4 cup Protein Powder (any flavor)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (any flavor)
Small Dixie Cups
Popsicle Sticks (Michael's, 99 cent store, Dollar Tree)
Mix yogurt, protein powder, and sugar free syrup together till well blended. You can add chopped fresh fruit just be sure to chop it fine.
Fill the Dixie cups about 3/4 full. Each batch makes 4.
Cover the top of the cup with foil. Insert a stick through the center of the foil. The purpose of the foil is to hold the stick in place while the pop is freezing and catch drips when eating :) Put Popsicles in freezer for a few hours.
Remove the pops from the freezer and peel off the Dixie cup. Enjoy, yum!
I used a variety of protein powders and sugar free syrups. I even combined a few flavors. OMG You must try the Celebrate Strawberry & Chocolate Milk ENS combo. Perfect for newer post-ops.
