Fruity Popsicle Recipes to Enjoy After a Workout

August 22, 2016

After a tough workout, your body is craving hydration and energy, and if you’ve been sweating a lot, you’re also looking for ways to cool off.

What better way is there to cool down and refresh your body than with an ice-cold, fruity popsicle? Check out the fruity popsicle recipes below to start making some healthy options for yourself that you can enjoy post-workout every day.

Green Tea and Fruit

Get the benefits of green tea, which provides antioxidants and a metabolism boost, by blending it with delicious fresh fruits in the following recipe:

· ½ scoop of your favorite post-workout protein powder
· ¼ grapefruit
· ½ banana
· ¼ cup watermelon
· ¼ cup of your favorite berries, such as strawberry
· ¼ cup of your favorite plant-based, low-sugar yogurt
· 2 tbsp green tea

Simply use your preferred popsicle molds to freeze the blended mixture and have it ready after you’re done working out.

Creamy Berry and Coconut

Are you hoping to enjoy a creamier popsicle that has some healthy fats to boost your health? Then use the following recipe:

· 1 package frozen berries (or fresh berries, if that’s what you prefer)
· 1 tbsp vanilla
· 2 tbsp honey
· 1 can coconut milk (get the full fat variety, not the reduced fat option)

All you have to do is mix all of the ingredients, except for the berries, on your stove and heat them until the mix is slightly warm. Let that cool and then pour it into your popsicle molds. Cut up the berries and add them to the molds before freezing them for a minimum of five hours.

Coconut Water and Fruit

One of the most popular fruity popsicle recipes uses coconut water instead of plain water in order to give you an extra boost of nutrition and electrolytes. The ingredients for this recipe are:

· fresh or frozen fruit of your choice
· 1 tbsp vanilla
· 2 tbsp honey
· 1 liter coconut water

Mix your ingredients, except for the fruit, in a blender. If you want to add the fruit, you can, but otherwise you can cut up the fruit and add it to the mixture after pouring it into your popsicle molds.

You can certainly come up with your own fruity popsicle recipes that will give you the hydration, protein, and nutrients you need following a tough workout so you can recover and keep going strong.
