Someone help me–I can’t stop making healthy popsicles!
These deliciously creamy Peaches and Cream Popsicles only have 3 ingredients and can easily be made vegan by substituting the vanilla whey protein powder with full fat coconut milk or vegan protein powder.

Recipe makes 4 standard popsicles
- 3 Organic Peaches
- 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein (I used Quest Nutrition)
- 1/4 c Almond Milk
- Remove the skin and seed from two of the peaches and dice into small pieces, then freeze until solid.
- Blend frozen peaches until smooth. This can take about five minutes of blending and scraping the sides.
- Add almond milk and protein powder, then continue blending until smooth.
- Cut fresh peach into pieces and divide them up between the popsicle molds.
- Pour peach puree into each mold. Tap mold on counter to remove air pockets.
- Place in the freezer until completely solid.
- To remove the popsicles from the molds, run them under warm water.
I was born and raised in a small town just outside of Las Vegas, NV, so I understand the desire for frozen foods when the summers are long and hot! I don’t know about you, but my “popsicle eating days without gaining a pound” are long gone. However, the cravings remain.
I found these adorable popsicle molds at Marshals for 6 bucks and I knew right away what I had to do. I needed to create a popsicle that was beneficial after a workout because that’s usually the time of day when I’m the hottest or sweatiest or just plain want something cold to eat.
Each popsicle has only 179 calories, 15 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat and only 6 carbohydrates (and that’s including the chocolate!).
So here it is, only four ingredients and you can easily adapt this recipe for different flavor popsicles by using your favorite protein.
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 Scoop Peanut Butter Protein Powder (I used Quest)
- 1/4 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt
- 4 tbsp. Dark Chocolate Fudge Coconut Butter (I used Nikki’s Coconut Butter)
Whisk together milk, protein powder and yogurt then pour into molds. The recipe should make about 4 popsicles depending the size of your molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours. Run molds under hot water for a few seconds before removing. Dip popsicles in semi melted coconut butter and returned to freezer for 5 minutes before serving. Optional: shredded coconut and chocolate chip garnish.
