Berry Yogurt Protein Pops

Happy 4th of July everybody! We hope everyone is having a wonderful day with family and friends! We are enjoying some homemade Berry Yogurt Protein Pops by the pool. These delicious treats were simple to make and are full of antioxidants, creamy Greek yogurt and muscle building whey protein!

Ingredients and Instructions:

Blend one scoop of Complete Whey Protein in the creamy vanilla flavor into one cup of plain Greek yogurt. 

If you prefer, substitute our Complete Pea Protein or Complete Paleo Protein in this recipe.

If you want the mix a little sweeter add a teaspoon of maple syrup or xylitol into the yogurt whey protein mix before filling popsicle molds.

Fill popsicle molds with fresh or frozen berries of your choice. We used frozen blueberries and strawberries. Pour the yogurt whey protein mix over the berries until popsicle molds are filled. 

Freeze overnight to enjoy the next day!

These pops make great snacks or breakfasts during summer time!


Lemon Ginger Protein Chews August 14, 2017 17:56

Lemon Ginger Protein Chews

We got the inspiration for this delicious snack from a well known recipe called Switchel.

Switchel is an old Amish drink which is like their form of natural gatorade drank during haying made from lemon juice, ginger and turmeric. It’s full of antioxidants, electrolytes, boosts your immune system and helps control weight. It’s a very soothing and calming tea and helps your body relax and ready itself for sleep! We often drink this delicious beverage after dinner to help with digestion.

So we got to thinking, wouldn't this make a great base for a nutritious snack! It sure does! We added a bit of our Complete Whey Protein and raw nuts to make it a filling and delicious snack.

Lemon Ginger Protein Chews

Just blend the ingredients list and chill. This is a no-bake recipe. We do not heat any of our protein recipes. We rolled some of the batter into bite sized balls and we also pressed some into a dish and cut into squares.

1 cup of medjool dates pitted (we softened our dates in warm water before blending)

1 cup of oats

the juice and zest of 1 lemon

1 tsp. of turmeric powder

1 tsp. of ginger powder

1 cup of raw cashews

1 cup of raw almonds

1 cup (approx. 4 scoops) of Complete Whey Protein in the Creamy Vanilla Flavor

2 Tbsp. of Maple Syrup or Honey if you prefer

1/2 cup of melted coconut oil

a dash of Himalayan sea salt in the batter and on top of the squares or balls

Just press into a square dish once blended and chill for an hour.

To make this recipe completely vegan, substitute Complete Pea Protein for the whey protein. To make this recipe a paleo recipe, sub with Complete Paleo Protein.

Lemon Ginger Protein Chews

Here's the recipe for Switchel also known as Haymaker's Punch:

Cut about a 1/4 cup of ginger root and turmeric root into small pieces and boil in filtered water until water turns rust color. If you don't have fresh ginger and turmeric root you can add 1 teaspoon each of powdered ginger and turmeric to boiled water.

Fill 2 mugs up with the boiled ginger and turmeric water

Juice one lemon and split evenly between mugs

Add 1 tsp. of Apple Cider Vinegar to each mug

Add 1 tsp. of Raw Honey to each mug

Add ice if desired

Enjoy with your loved ones!
