Strawberry Smoothie Pops

Smoothie making should be relaxed and pretty free form — basically you want some berries, a cup or two, some milk, a cup or two, a scoop of protein powder, a squirt of flax oil and a couple hands full of ice cubes.  This makes enough for several lunchtime smoothies, but what to do with the leftovers?  Freeze it!  You can make delicious, sugar free frozen treats with a boost of protein.  A popsicle that is nutritionally balanced??  Who would have guessed it was possible.
Strawberry Smoothie Pops
makes 1 blender full, 32 ounces (4 cups); some for drinking, some for freezing
2 cups fresh strawberries, or 1 10 ounce package frozen organic
2 cups almond milk
1 scoop protein powder, I like Jay Robb’s Whey Protein, vanilla
1 tablespoon organic flax oil
approx 2 cups ice cubes
a little water to help blend (optional)
1.  Place the berries, almond milk, protein powder, flax oil and ice in blender.  Whirr on high for a minute and you’re good to go!
2.  To make the frozen treats, pour into molds like the ones from Tovolo and set in the freezer for a few hours until frozen.
Amy’s Kitchen Coach Tips
  • It is best if you make the almond milk yourself (see my recipe — you can search in the upper left of this website), but in a pinch, go ahead and use your favorite brand of almond milk or unsweetened soy milk.
  • If you use frozen berries instead of fresh, cut back on the ice cubes.  Start with a couple and add more depending on the consistency.
  • I enjoy using the protein powder from Jay Robb, since it is sweetened with stevia, not refined sugar. Although not organic, the whey protein comes from milk from cows not treated with hormones.

    We have these popsicle makers and use them constantly – mostly using regular or pink lemonade.

    Hi, Amy — I really liked this recipe; I like the Jay Robb protein, myself. Read about it in a diet book I’d been using, very little added sugar.

    I’d love to try these!

    Cheers

    Just yesterday I found a new whey protein at the store. Stevia sweetened but with very few other ingredients…Tara’s Whey. I’m excited to try it, but haven’t yet.
