Healthy chocolate whey popsicles

I had a serious mental block about whey protein powder just a few months back. I spoke to a nutritionist regarding my difficulty to lose weight & how I find it almost impossible to lose weight even after eating the ‘right’ foods & working out whenever possible as well. She had asked me send a sample of what I eat for a day or two. I had diligently sent her what I ate for 1 whole day & she already knew what my problem was. She told me I was severely cutting down on my required protein intake for the day & that was what was getting me perennially tired & was also the major culprit for my cravings & for my weight loss failure hence. She asked me to start having eggs for breakfast & also advised me to take whey protein twice a day. I opened up to her about my reservations for this & she pointed out that this powder is no different from your horlicks or complan excepting your horlicks & complan are calorie loaded & this ain’t. So, I decided I would give it a shot (she recommended a specific brand which their lab has tested & certified as OK to consume) & I must say I see a huge difference in terms of my weight loss saga & my energy levels. However, having whey protein everyday is super duper duper boring. I was thinking of alternate ways to make it less boring (especially for the weekend evenings when I feel like having something nice aka junk) & that’s when I thought I should try and make popsicles out of these. Our house is constantly stocked with bananas & almost always there are 1 or 2 that’s getting over ripe :). One day when there were 2 over ripe bananas lying around in the kitchen, I whipped up these really yummy popsicles using just 3 ingredients (the bananas, the whey protein & milk to thin it out) & knew I had to blog this one. Regular whey drinkers, please try this one. It’s really amazing & it’s amazing how it takes a boring whey & a boring banana & some boring milk into an amazing popsicle product :). The non whey drinkers who r trying to lose weight, give this one a go :). The non whey drinkers who don’t need to or care about losing weight, don’t bother with this one, I have another recipe coming up with chocolate powder instead of whey powder that’s equally yummy as well.

Healthy chocolate whey popsicles

Servings: 6 medium popsicles
  • 1 medium overripe banana
  • 1 scoop chocolate whey protein I use the Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder
  • 1 cup milk
  1. Slice an overripe banana into pieces and place it in a blender. 

  2. To this add, the whey powder & milk.

  3. Blend until smooth.

  4. Transfer into the popsicle moulds. 

  5. Freeze for a minimum of 6-8 hours. 

  6. Before you have it, run the mould under water for a few seconds & shake out the popsicle gently. 

  7. Devour onto a tasty and super healthy popsicle with ZERO guilt. 

Recipe Notes
  1. Bananas when overripe are naturally very sweet and hence, the more ripe the banana is, the better for this recipe. 
  2. Leave a slight gap in each mould to allow the expansion that happens during freezing. 
  3. This recipe yields 6 medium size popsicles. 

Stepwise pictures

Overripe bananas are sweeter. So the riper, the better.

Peel & chop (in my case roughly hand cut) the banana pieces & place it in a blender.

Add milk & whey protein.

Blend away.

Pour the mixture into popsicle moulds & freeze for 8-10 hours.

Right before you want to have them, run the moulds under tap water for a few seconds before taking them out. Enjoy! 🙂
