I love making popsicles over the summer. I actually make them throughout the year but when it gets warmer I tend to make them even more. These high protein chocolate cherry popsicles are great for my kids as a snack and are super easy to make.
Popsicles are one of my favorite things to make when it comes to making snacks over the spring and summer. You can make endless variations. My kids enjoy any flavor I make for them—you really can’t go wrong!
For the protein of choice I use new Burt’s Bees™ Protein + Healthy Radiance - Chocolate. Burt’s Bees Protein Shakes offers three unique blends: Daily Protein, Protein + Healthy Radiance and Protein + Gut Health.
Each of their formulas includes five protein sources: Pea, Rice, Flaxseed, Sunflower Seed and Oat, to achieve high digestibility and a complete essential amino acid profile. They also include vitamins from real fruits and vegetables that provide between 10-25% of your recommended daily value of vitamins A, C, D, E, K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, B6, Folate, Biotin and Pantothenic acid.
For the fruit of choice, I opted for cherries since they’re in season, however, you can use any fruit of your choice. Anything goes really.

1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until you obtain a homogenous mixture.

My kids go crazy when I make popsicles so I always try to sneak good nutritious ingredients for them to consume while enjoying them. It’s just plain genius!
