Protein Popsicles Recipe

90 Calories and 10 Grams of Protein? This Is Your Post-Workout Treat Dream Come True

After a sweltering Summer workout, you need to cool off inside and out. Smoothies are great, but they can run you 300 calories or more, which will totally undo all the good work you just did. For a quick, cool, and low-cal post-workout treat, these popsicles are perfect.

At just 89 calories, each pop offers 10.3 grams of protein. And because they're dairy free, they won't aggravate seasonal-allergy congestion. They whip us as easily as a smoothie and are waiting in your freezer for whenever you need them. If you don't have these popsicle molds, just use paper cups with wooden popsicle sticks.
