3 After School Protein Popsicle Recipes and a Protein Parfait Recipe

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Premier Protein. The opinions and text are all mine.

 

Last week I was offered a case of vanilla Premier Protein shakes to try through my affiliation with FitFluential.  I jumped at the chance because I absolutely love Premier Protein bars and have reviewed them in the past. Their protein shakes are available at Canadian Costco Stores, nationwide.

I like how convenient it is to drop a Premier Protein shake into my lunch to enjoy after my lunch workout.  With 30g of protein, 1g of sugar and only 160 calories, these make for a great post-workout shake!  They come in chocolate and vanilla flavours (the vanilla flavour is new and improved!) – but I only received vanilla to try.  They’re delicious!

Unfortunately my kids liked them too and wanted them all for themselves.  After much discussion, we compromised and made 3 different kinds of protein popsicles for them to enjoy as an after school treat. The popsicles use less of the Premier Protein shakes, and therefore left more for me to enjoy, win-win!

The first recipe we made was Orange Creamsicle Protein Popsicles.  This was my youngest daughter, Amber’s creation.  She loves orange juice!

In a blender we combined 1/2 an orange, 1 cup of orange juice, and a carton of Vanilla Premier Protein Shake.  We mixed slowly at first, then progressively faster until the mixture was nice and creamy.  We then poured the mixture into popsicle molds and froze them overnight.  Yum yum!

Next it was my oldest daughter, Sierra’s turn to pick a flavour.  She likes peanut butter and banana together so we made Peanut Butter Banana Popsicles for her.

In a blender we combined 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder, 1 banana, and a carton of Vanilla Premier Protein Shake.  Like the Orange Creamsicles, we mixed slowly at first, then progressively faster until the mixture was nice and creamy.  We then poured the mixture into popsicle molds and froze them overnight.  Yum yum!

My middle daughter Brooke choose her flavour last.  We had a bag of frozen mixed berries in the freezer, so she choose Mixed Berry Protein Popsicles.

The nice part about these after school treats is that they’re low in sugar, high in protein and were made with ingredients that I already had in the house.  There was no additional shopping required, which for this busy mom is a bonus.  The kids enjoyed them, because they were delicious and fun to eat.  

For me, a protein parfait is more my style:

Premier Protein also has a variety of delicious and high protein bars, also available at Costco stores throughout Canada. They come in such delicious flavors as Chocolate Peanut Butter, Yogurt Peanut Crunch, and Dark Chocolate Mint. The Chocolate Peanut Butter is my favourite!
