    Citrus Protein Pops -a healthy and delicious summer treat!

    Hi there! I’m Kristen Duke, and I love to share my creative endeavors over at Capturing Joy.

    I love citrus fruits, my favorites being mango, kiwi, & pineapple, so I thought I’d try out making them into protein pops, a.k.a. popsicles, with my kids. The greek yogurt is packed with protein, so it helps fill up those mid afternoon hunger pangs, as well. I actually made some similar treats a few weeks ago, you can check out the Blueberry Coconut Protein Pops after, and you may just find you love making your own pops.

    I love to get my kids involved in the creating process as much as possible. My boys (14 and 12) will do it if I ask, but my girls (9 and 6) actually ASK!Citrus Protein Pops -a healthy and delicious summer treat!

    With this particular pop, I wanted to keep the texture of the actual fruit in part of it, so I did some chopping, as well as some blending. My popsicle mold holds 10, and with traditional popsicle sticks, this has been my favorite mold by far (and I’ve tried a few over the years).
