YAY! I finally got my computer looked at! Aaaand...it turns out it was my internet being wired wrong and not my laptop that was messing my life up (>_>). Anywho, the point is that me and my posts are back in action! Although, I've realized that posting everyday is not something that can last...SO I'm switching to posting once every other day or so---less stress for me, less reading for you folks out there. (^_^)

Anywho, while my lil laptop was out of commission, the weather here in Hawaii has started transitioning from winter rainy season to sunny skies!! LOVE the weather shift because I dislike cold, windy, rainy days, and also because I love frozen goodies like the one in the picture: Banana Split Protein FroYo Popsicles! I love the strawverry, banana, and chocolate flavors all swirling around together, YUUUUM!!! XD 


Banana Split Protein FroYo Popsicles

Picture
Makes 3 popsicles

Ingredients:
  • 2/3 C non-fat greek yogurt
  • 30 drops liquid vanilla stevia (or 1/5 tsp vanilla extract + 2 tbsp sweetener of choice)
  • 3-3.5 oz. strawberries*
  • 1 scoop banana protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chocolate syrup (I used Walden Farms)

Directions:
  1. Blend everything except the chocolate syrup together, preferably using a hand/emulsion blender if you've got one. Blend to desired consistency; I enjoy chucks of strawberries to remain in my mix for added texture.
  2. Drizzle the chocolate syrup over the top of the mixture. Using a spoon, stir the chocolate into the mixture using a circular motion, going full circle no more than 2 or 3 times (or else the chocolate will fully mix instead of creating the marbled effect).
  3. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, dividing as evenly as possible (or into three Dixie cups and add a popsicle stick). Freeze for at least 3 hours or until popsicles are fully set before serving.


*Note: You can use both fresh strawberries and banana, or both strawberry protein powder and banana protein powder, or a reverse combination of strawberry protein powder and fresh banana; it's really up to you, what you have available, and what kind of macros you're trying to fulfill.

Everything into a cup for mixing with my emulsion blender!

Pour into each mold and add your sticks/bases in carefully

If you over-mix the chocolate, you'll miss out on the awesome marbling!
