Protein Ice Lollies
Protein Ice Lollies are an idea I came up with during a recent heat wave. Such an easy and simple idea!
I figured instead of using sugar-free squash to make ice lollies, like I normally would, why not just use whey protein!
The video below shows how it’s done, but I don’t really know if a video was even necessary for this!
What a great way to have your whey protein on a hot day, rather than just a usual protein shake! You can get creative and blend extra ingredients to your protein ice lollies too. Like maybe blend in a tablespoon of your favourite sugar-free nut butter. You could also blend in berries or a banana. I made these protein ice lollies with water and whey, but you could use milk or even Greek yogurt or quark if you wanted to.
Just note that when blended, the mixture will be frothy. This means that when the froth dies down, the actual amount of mixture remaining will be less than first thought. I made the mistake of not waiting for the froth to die down before pouring the mixture into the ice lolly mould. This is why the finished ice lollies were a little smaller than they should have been!
The nutritional value for the mixture is as follows, so just divide this by the number of lollies made with the one scoop:
Just so you know, the whey protein powder I used is this one:
