Have you purchased Silk Almond Blends before?
One of the diet changes we’ve made in our house is to look for foods with protein that are not animal based. Which is why we’ve been purchasing more almond milk. Almond milk protein is the perfect substitute when trying to cut back on animal consumption.
Since Silk AlmondMilk with Protein and Fiber has both 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving, I find it makes for a perfect post-workout recovery food.
My husband is training for a half marathon, my daughter is doing her cross country summer work-out runs, and my other daughter has summer volleyball practice.
When they get home from their training, they are hot, tired, and in the mood for something refreshing. I’ve come up with these Black Forest Protein popsicles as a way to cool them down and give them a post-workout protein boost.
The first thing you will want to do is pop on over to your Safeway to get some Silk AlmondMilk Protein plus Fiber. They also have a Silk AlmondCoconut blend that would be delicious in a popsicle.
One thing you’ll notice about the almondmilk is it’s creamy consistency. It makes these popsicles nice and creamy – more like a fudgesicle!
These popsicles are so easy to make and only require a few healthy ingredients.
- 2 cups Silk Almondmilk with Protein and Fiber
- 1 1/2 cups frozen sweet dark cherries
- 1/4 cup fair trade cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
- Once frozen, enjoy!
This recipe makes between 6 and 8 popsicles, depending on your popsicle molds.
Of course, if you don’t have the patience to freeze these, drink it as a smoothie! It will still be cold and refreshing.
Finally, all you need to do is enjoy a healthy treat on a hot summery day.
