Chocolate Banana Protein Popsicle

I was talking to my Mom today and we were chatting about healthy eating and exercise and all that. We are both trying to eat healthy, especially at night when those cravings set in for ice cream and cookies and all that yummy, unhealthy stuff. So I wanted to share this new chocolate popsicle recipe I made up for those times at night when you are simply craving something chocolaty! And let face it, we’ve all been there!

This one is real simple; its only 3 ingredients. Simply blend it all together and pour it into you handy dandy popsicle molds. I use Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds that I got on Amazon and they work wonderfully. They are somewhat large molds and this reciepe makes 5 of them. They taste just like a fudgsicle. 🙂

I made these with lots of protein because I work out quite a bit and sometimes like to eat these after I work out as well. You could make these with less protein and more chocolate soy, or regular chocolate milk, to keep the chocolate flavor.

Chocolate Banana Protein Popsicles

  • 1 1/4 cups Silk Light Chocolate Soy Milk
  • 3 scoops Optimum Nutrition – Whey Protein Gold Standard 100% Double Rich Chocolate (but any chocolate flavored protein will do)
  • 1 Large ripe banana (The banana makes it nice and creamy)

These exact measurements will make enough for 5 Popsicle molds, using the molds I used.
