Recipe: Neapolitan Protein Pops

Talk about nostalgia! I can almost hear the jingle of the ice cream truck…

Even if you have to say goodbye to summer, that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to frozen desserts, especially when they’re this healthy. We’ve reinvented this old-time classic dessert into a guilt-free treat that is sure to satisfy the kid in you. (And if the kids or grandkids are around, make a double batch so you will want to share!)

These Neapolitan Protein Pops are packed with protein, healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber. This recipe calls for JJ’s All-In-One Protein Shake powder, which adds superstar nutrition and such a creamy texture. You can honestly and happily have one of these pops for breakfast! 

No matter which shake powder you choose, just be sure to use clean protein, which means no dairy/whey or soy (the top offenders for food intolerances and weight gain). And steer clear of anything with more than 3 grams of sugar per serving to avoid a blood glucose and insulin roller coaster. 

Last but not least, remember to use BPA-free popsicle molds!

Pro Tip: Simply double the recipe and enjoy a neapolitan smoothie while these creamy, sweet pops are in the freezer. That’s the best kind of multi-tasking!
