Strawberry Creamsicles

So many standard popsicles and frozen fruit bars are filled with sugar and artificial ingredients, which led me to create a more adult version of a creamsicle filled with whole food ingredients, including protein and healthy fat. Even though I consider these to be a more grown up version of a popsicle, my kids absolutely love these. To get creative, feel free to substitute different types of fruit combinations for the two cups of frozen strawberries. I’ve given you some ideas below the recipe or try your own favorite fruit combos!

The collagen powder used in this recipe will add a few grams of protein per popsicle. Collagen powder can be taken daily in smoothies, in water, in coffee, etc. to help support gut health, cartilage repair, and skin, hair, and nail health.

The collagen powder I use is the Vital Proteins brand: https://amzn.to/2XhRPnt

The popsicle mold I use is a non-toxic stainless steel and bamboo set: https://amzn.to/2XSpjbs
