It’s the last recipe of the year! Let’s get ready for 2015 with some sweet treats full of protein to jumpstart those workouts!
I love to prep ahead a few of these and have them for a post workout snack or when I’m feeling like I need a little pick-me-up midday.
Chocolate Protein Banana Pops
2 large Bananas, ripe (cut into thirds)
3/4 cup Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder
3/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil, melted
Rawmio Almond Silk Butter, to drizzle
Desiccated Coconut, to top
6 Popsicle Sticks
Prep your bananas by slicing them evenly into thirds. or halves if you’d like larger servings.
Insert a popsicle stick into each banana piece.
Lay your banana pieces on a parchment lined baking sheet. Let them chill in the freezer for about an hour or overnight. You want them cold enough to harden the coconut oil instantly when you dip them.
Whisk together your protein powder and melted coconut oil till smooth.
Remove your banana pops from the freezer and dip each one, letting the excess dip off. Hold it until the chocolate begins to freeze, then place it back onto the parchment.
Repeat until all your bananas pops are fully coated. You can double dip them if you’d like.
Drizzle over your almond butter and top with coconut.
Transfer your coated banana pops back into the freezer to firm up, at least an hour or two, overnight is best for fully frozen pops.
Serve frozen, enjoy.
Have fun with different combinations and toppings. I’m going to make some vanilla bean & cookies dough ones next! I absolutely adore the PlantFusion protein powder flavors. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a vegan protein powder to supplement your diet/workouts. No, I’m not being paid to say that. This is my 100% honest opinion. I’ve been using these for over a year now and I’m hooked!
