chocolate protein nice cream pops to boost breast milk and support muscle recovery

Banana nice cream is a summer staple in my house. The kiddos love dreaming up new flavors and adding fun mix-ins, like sprinkles, chocolate chips, or cereal. And when I want the ice-y dessert to be even more nutritious, I add a scoop of plant-based chocolate protein powder.

Chocolate Protein Nice Cream is super versatile. You can blend it up, scoop it into bowls, and eat it right away. Or fill up a few popsicle molds and enjoy a hand-held treat later.

These pops are sweeter than the typical protein smoothies I like to make after a workout, so for me they fall into the treat category. But your tastebuds might disagree, so feel free to ramp up the sweetness with more maple syrup, if you like. 


  • 2 Bananas, frozen
  • 1 serving Plant-based Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 2/3 cup Almond Milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp. Maple Syrup (optional)


Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth; mixture will be thick, like soft-serve ice cream. Spoon smoothie mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze until solid, about 4 hours or overnight. Makes 4 popsicles.
