Delicious Vegan Protein Summer Pops!
No matter what time of year it may be, some days you just want something cool, fruity, sweet, and delicious. Ordinarily this craving would be satisfied with ice cream or a fruity popsicle. The problem here is that not only do these foods contain dairy, eggs, and other animal-derived ingredients, but they are also loaded up with unhealthy fats, refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, and other ingredients that do the body no good at all.
If you’re craving something sweet, creamy, cooling and refreshing, try these fantastic vanilla passion protein pops. These protein pops contain just 4 simple ingredients, but they taste simply divine. Containing vanilla vegan protein which contributes towards muscle growth and repair, these pops will not hinder your progress at the gym or halt your gains. In fact, they will help you to improve. Creamy almond milk gives them a light and fluffy texture, whereas the chia seeds supercharge your immune system thanks to their high nutrient content. Finally, the sweet and fruity finish is provided with passion fruit, which not only tastes fantastic, but it also helps to provide plenty of health benefits including the fact that it can promote cardiovascular health and well-being.
While these frozen vanilla protein passion pops are best enjoyed on a warm day, we wouldn’t blame you in the slightest if you chose to enjoy one on a cold, wet and windy evening.
