Making healthier choices isn't about giving up all your favorite foods. Sometimes it is eating your favorite foods in smaller portions and/or in moderation. Other times it is making healthy substitutes. Healthy doesn't have to be boring, we can have sweet treats that are healthy, satisfying and delicious.

Last weekend I made these healthy protein fudge popsicles. They tasted delicious like the store-bought ones, but because of the added protein powder they have 30 grams (per scoop) of protein. I am a Premier Protein ambassador, so I used their chocolate protein powder which has only two grams of sugar and no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors. They were a cool refreshing post-workout treat on a hot summer Texas day.
With only four ingredients, they were easy to prepare and I had gobble them all down before they melted.
PROTEIN FUDGE POPSICLES INGREDIENTS
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
2 cups of chocolate almond milk (use any type of chocolate milk you like)
1 tsp of cocoa powder
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Mix up the ingredients in a blender and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for three to four hours. When frozen run the molds under warm water to loosen the popsicles from the mold. Eat all as quickly as possible before they melt. :)
